Hi I'm Jake McKee

I've grown up in Utah. I do what I want, if my mom says it's ok. I live for the water and outdoors. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I'd like to start by saying that is a bad picture of me. I was just so excited to make this account that I didn't take the time to make a good smile. I am of the humble birth and origin of Utah valley, I leave for my mission to Santa Maria, Brazil on July 8, 2015. I love anything boarding, especially long boarding. I do track, swim, hunt, boat, free dive, solve rubix cubes, shoot stuff, climb trees, go on hikes, the whole nine yards. Anything outdoors is really my game. I've spent years honing my talents of holding my breath, and I love the ocean more than most things. My plans after the before-mentioned mission are attending BYU Hawaii, majoring in something, marrying someone, working somewhere, and showing off my newly acquired Portuguese speaking skills I hope to pick up while in Brazil. The gospel of Jesus Christ is a huge part of my life, and I would feel lost without it. I love this church.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because it is the only way to be truly happy in this life. The peace of mind that comes with knowing that my family is forever and that our sins can be forgiven and we can return to live with our heavenly father makes me so happy that I can't imagine leaving this church. This is why I chose to serve as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, so I can bring other children of God to the knowledge of the only true church.

How I live my faith

I have had various teaching responsibilities. I love discussing church and gospel topics. I've taken four years of seminary, and almost two years of a mission preparation class. I've served as a home teacher for neighbors for almost four years. I'm serving as a missionary for the next two years.
