Hi I'm Jake

I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love to work hard and have fun. My hobbies include skiing, mountain biking, hiking, camping. I am a student at BYU Hawaii, I am on the Men's Tennis team here. I am studying Business with an emphasis in marketing.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, raised in the gospel by my family. I was baptized when I was eight years old, I always had faith that the church was true but I never really put any effort or thought into finding out for myself. At the age of fifteen I came to a point where I wanted to know for myself, I had seen some very close family members make decisions and choices that were contrary to the teachings of the gospel. I needed to know for myself if this is the true gospel of Jesus Christ. I read the Book of Mormon all the way through by myself, then I asked our Heavenly Father if what I had read was true and what I should do with my life. I didn't receive an answer immediately, but I can testify to you that I know the Book of Mormon is the true word of God. Our Heavenly Father loves us no matter what we have done or what we are going through, he is our biggest advocate. I can testify of the cleansing power of the atonement, I am so grateful for the sacrifice that Christ made for us. He did it because he loves us. I know that we can live with our families and Heavenly Father again. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

Love to participate in all the church activities, great way to make friends and meet new people.
