Hi I'm Jake

I grew up in Layton. I love music more than almost anything, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up playing soccer. It is one of my favorite pass times. That and throwing the frisbee around. I love to be outside with my friends. Nothing however is more fun for me than to sit down and listen to some music. Im a music junky thats for sure. I collect Vinyl records, and have about 50 of them so far. My favorite are the fancy ones that are colored disks other than the standard black. I have big old speakers and subwoofers in both my room and my car. I love to listen and I love to jam out to music all the time. I love my friends. I've always been a friends guy. Loving to go and hang out with my friends. They think I tend to talk a lot, which is entirely true, but they still love me anyways. I was never huge into video games but I did get really into Overwatch. That is a fun game right there! Really enjoyed it honestly. Im currently serving a mission in Costa Rica, on the West end of the country. I am loving it. I love my Lord and Savior and I love the gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

At first I was a mormon because my parents were. Until I was about 15 or so I decided that I just didnt want to be a mormon for my parents. This was a crisis of faith in my life. But I decided to do a lot of reading in the book of mormon and see for myself if it was true. After reading it and praying to God and asking him to help me know if my church was true, he answered me. He told me that it is the true church. He told me by comforting me whenever I questioned the church. Before I prayed and studied I would be anxious when I questioned the church. After I prayed I began to feel comfort, and I knew it was the Holy Ghost helping me. I am Mormon because I know my Savior loves me and I want to be my very best for him The biggest reason I am a Mormon is because I cant wait to get married. I dont want to be married "till death do you part" but I want to be sealed to my future wife for time and all eternity.

How I live my faith

I participate in my religion in many ways.The first time i began sharing the gospel was with my friends. There is a local soda shop that we would always go too, and we ended up loving to talk about my religion over drinks. (Non alcoholic of course!) I learned that I loved sharing the gospel, and began taking any oppurtunity i could to share it. I spend a large amount of time teaching people over the internet on the Xbox because when we got on to play games, I would never swear over the microphone. After a few games people would usually ask "Why don't you swear?" and I would just tell them that I am a mormon. They always had tons of questions after that. I spent a fair amount of time sharing my love for the church with my friends and family. I always have tried to go to church, and know it to be a great place to share the gospel, and discuss some questions from studying the book of mormon and other things.
