Hi I'm Jake

I'm a Mormon. I live in a old 100 year old church. I love music! I play the guitar and write songs.

About Me

My name is Jacob. As of right now I'm a return missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of latter day Saints. I'm a musician and I write songs. I love anything and everything about music and I'm an avid guitar fan. I love this gospel and the the Savior Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church, but that doesn't mean that I was forced to believe what I believe. I have agency, as does everyone on this beautiful Earth has. I have two of the best parents in the world, who have taught me about the Gospel and set forth great exapmles. Like most people on this Earth, I have experienced challenges and trials that have shaped me into who I am. I'm not perfect and so, I am very grateful for the love of Jesus Christ and that he laid down his life for me. I am very thankful to be apart of his church and his gospel. I love the scriptures! The book of Mormon is so perfect! Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God. No doubt about it. I can't express in words how much I know that this Church is true. It's perfect. It's beautiful. It's for everyone and it's the true gospel of Jesus Christ! I love my family, and to know that I can be with them for ever and ever makes me so grateful for Heavenly Fathers plan. I love my family so much and the way that this Gospel has kept my family together strengthens my testimony of it's truth. The way it brings families together is just amazing.

How I live my faith

I served a two year mission in South Carolina. I loved being a missionary and I love sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with others. I biked and sweated all day long for two years strait to bring people to Christ. If the world could be united and if everyone could live together as one, I want to do all I can to bring that to pass. The only way to do it is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I try to live my life by following the Saviors example.

Who was Joseph Smith?

Jake
Joseph Smith was a boy of young age in search for truth. He was taught by goodly parents to fear God and have faith in His Son Jesus Christ. He saw all the confusion from the different beliefs and wanted to know which is the "one faith" it speaks of in the bible. (Ephesians 4:5) Wanting to know which of all the churches were true or if they were all wrong, he knew that the bible was truth, so he continued in his search in the scriptures when he came upon a scripture in James 1:5. It told him that if anyone needs wisdom or answers is to ask God and he will give it to him. He wanted to know which of all the churches was the true one and which one he should join. So he decided to do exactly what was said in the book of James. One spring morning he went into a grove of trees and knelt down and asked Heavenly Father in prayer. Heavenly Father and his Son Jesus Christ appeared to him in a vision and told him that he should join none of the churches because they were all wrong but the fullness of the truth would soon be restored. They called him to be a prophet, someone like Moses. He was called to restore the true church of Jesus Christ again upon the earth. Show more Show less
