Hi I'm Jake

I'm from Utah. I like to sing and dance. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I'm 18 years old and have just graduated from high school. I like to ballroom dance. I was a part of the stansbury precision ballroom team for two years in high school and I'm glad I did it. I like to sing, I haven't been singing for too long and I'm not that good, but I enjoy singing with others. I like to beatbox. If you don't know anything about beatboxing then it might seem strange to you but basically I try to imitate percussion instruments with my mouth, basically making me a "human beatbox." I've been doing this since about 8th grade and I've been told I'm really good. I've also done some acting in highschool, I don't plan to continue it, and I don't enjoy it quite as much as the other hobbies I've mentioned but I did like the time I spent acting in highschool productions. When I go to college I plan on majoring in mechanical engineering. I'm alright at math and if there's one thing I really love it's figuring out how things work, and afterwards how they could be improved.

Why I am a Mormon

I have read The Book of Mormon and I know that it truly testifies of Jesus Christ through writing of the ancient people of The Americas. I know that my Savior lives and I know that this is his gospel restored by the prophet Joseph Smith Junior. I choose to go to church and to live this gospel because I want to return to my Heavenly Father who loves me. I love him and I want to spend the rest of eternity with him.

How I live my faith

on the 24th of June 2015 I'll be leaving to go to South Korea to serve a mission there for two years. This is scary for me and I'm really nervous. But I have faith in my God that he will help me through it. Besides that I think it will be worth it to bring the gospel that I know is true to a people that I don't know. I can't think of anything better to do with my time than to serve The Lord by helping people come unto him.
