Hi I'm Jake

I grew up in Utah, I'm living in Northern Sweden. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in New Hampshire but moved to Utah when I was young. Im planning on playing college lacrosse, I am all about P90X and I think music, art and traveling are worthwhile. I like to listen to every kind of music and play my ukulele, but I can only play a few songs. I enjoy traveling and hiking and being in nature. I worked a full time job to prepare to serve my two year mission for the church in Stockholm Sweden. I like yoga but am pretty bad at it. Im all about a good sunset or sunrise if im awake.

Why I am a Mormon

Im a Mormon because its something I know is the truth. To be honest I grew up a member of the church and just went to church and lived my religion because its what everyone else did and what my parents expected of me, BUT, there came a time in my life that I had to decide I needed to find the truth for myself. I had graduated high school and all friends had moved away so it was a time when I was trying to do things for the right reason. I prayed with all the energy of my heart and read the Book of Mormon, and let me say, the answers dont come easily, but they do come! And the feeling of truth that comes from God when you read the Book of Mormon is one of a kind! Nothing compares to it. I think being a Mormon is the only way on earth to follow the perfect path prepared for us by the Lord and to help others, be happy, and have fun along the way. Im a Mormon becuase I know its the true church, I have peace in my life from Jesus Christ, and everything on this earth is evidence that God lives. Its cool to live the truth.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being the best person I can be in day to day life. I try to help others and be a friend to everyone because no one wants to be alone. I live my faith by trying to have fun in life and live life to the fullest, in the ways God wants me to.

What do Mormons believe concerning the doctrine of grace?

We believe that we are saved through Gods grace and mercy however good works are the fruit of our labors. Hence the doctrine of Grace teaches that we can repent and be forgiven of our sins, and through this action we can will feel of Gods love. Show more Show less
