Hi I'm Jake

I feel close to God while in the mountains. I grew up in Lehi, Utah. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Jake, I love to play sports, be outdoors- camping, hiking, climbing, fishing, snowshoeing, etc. I like to read and to learn new things, I'm interested in traveling and interested in other people and their culture and ways of living. I am constantly listening to music, I love to recognize talent in all forms. I love my religion and all that it does for me. Some of my most spiritual experiences have been in the middle of nowhere while camping with my friends, recognizing His hand in our lives and in the world around us. I am usually a pretty optomistic fella, perhaps that is because I have felt the love that my Heavenly Father and Savior, Jesus Christ, have for me.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I want to be happy. Happy in this earth life and happy in the eternities. I know that the only way to do so is through Jesus Christ, and in no other religion could I possibly form as deep of a relationship with Him as is possible in the Church of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I try my hardest to be worthy and willing to serve and love those around me. I go to church every sunday, and learn something new every week. I feel good when I go, that feeling hasn't diminished even the slightest and I have been going for 18 years. I recently finished playing a season of soccer at USUE, but I am putting my athletic and academic scholarships on hold as I dedicate 2 years of my life to the Lord and His church while I serve a full-time mission in Osorno, Chile.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

In order to increase faith in Jesus Christ in the olden times, we would have to talk to the people that knew him- Peter, James, John, etc. In the Mormon religion, we believe in the Book of Mormon: another testament of Jesus Christ written by prophets in the Americas. Just as the bible, it is scripture, revelations of God. In order to increase faith in Christ, we need to learn all we can about Him- we do so by reading and studying in the spirit of prayer the Holy Bible and the Book of Mormon. Show more Show less
