Hi I'm Jake Herman

I've grown up in Orem Utah. I've been a Mormon my whole life and I love it

About Me

I've played football and baseball my whole life. I've had opportunities to play baseball in college but I've deferred to go on a mission. I'm called to serve in the Mexico Mexico City North mission I leave January 17th to the Mexico MTC

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and it has been a huge blessing for my life. I'm so grateful to know of this gospel. It is the best road map I could ever have for my life. I have felt the spirit so many times and it is to comforting to me. I know with all my heart that this is the true and restored church. I know God loves me and that president Thomas S. Monson is a true prophet of God. I have had dark times in my life, but whenever I turn to the Lord everything works out and life is good again. Knowing that I have a loving father in heaven makes life so much better and I can't wait to return to him again.

How I live my faith

I try to attend the temple as often as I can. I attend activities with my ward. I attend church every Sunday and partake of the sacrament. Then I go to gospel doctrine and learn more about the gospel. I live my faith by trying to be like my savior Jesus Christ everyday. I keep the savior in my thoughts and pray everyday for guidance and support. I know that following the teachings of the gospel blesses me. I am kept safe and pure by following both the commandments and the word of wisdom. I have learned for myself about the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon and the words of the prophet. From my studying of the teachings of the apostles, the scriptures, and my own personal revelation I know with a surety of the truthfulness of this church.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Jake Herman
I can promise anyone that if they read the Book of Mormon and study the gospel their faith will grow. If you want to be good at something you must practice. In this case practice is studying and becoming a student of the gospel. Pray faithfully to Heavenly Father and build a strong relationship with him. Show more Show less
