Hi I'm Jake Grondel

and I like to party

About Me

I am the 5th oldest of 10 children. I have 6 brothers and 3 sisters. I am the third child to serve a mission, two of my older brothers served in Brazil and my parents both served in the England London South mission and that is how they met. I graduated a year early from High School by creating my own curriculum through BYU independent study and college courses. For the past 2 years I worked as a Lifeguard and Swim Instructor to save up money for my mission. I am currently serving in the Belgium/Netherlands Mission and speaking Dutch.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I feel such joy when I follow the teachings of the church. I have had my doubts in the past, but I have felt the love of Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. The Atonement of Jesus Christ has completely changed my life and transformed me into a whole new person and I want to share the with other people. That is why I'm going on a mission and that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being an example to others and helping those in need.
