Hi I'm Jake

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Well first of, im jake , i am born and raised in the LDS church, both parents were converts, i have 3 sisters no brothers, kinda ruff but its awesome! i graduated high school , and after graduation, novembor 16th 2011, i was called to serve as a full time missionary of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day saints. And i serve at North Carolina Charlotte mission. My hobbies are drumming, i lovee to play the drumset to mostly heavy metal music, such as asking alexandria, august burns red, attack attack, abandon all ships, and alot more!. I also play soccer, ultimate frisbee, and i love to swim. Favorite food is steak by FAR than comes sea food. Just being friendly and positive is the way to live. Going to the beach is also pretty legit!!

Why I am a Mormon

Im a mormon because first off i was born and raised into the church due to the fact that my parents are converts when they were young. When i was at a young teen age i did not take alot of interest in the church, cas i thought it was just very boring and tiresome. But when i went through a hard trial with my oldest sister having cancer, i prayed and prayed that she would make it through cas some kids don't make it through that hardship challenge. But because of God, and Jesus, hearing my prayers, she made it through 2 to 3 years of chemo treatment and surgery, and is now back in college and doing well. I love my church, the people are ALWAYS friendly, you don't just go to attend service and leave. You go there to see your church family, and to feel the warm spirit that the speakers and the holy ghost and everyone else invites in the church. The best thing i love about the church is the bishop. He knows each and every single member, and always talks to them and helps them individually with their trials. And most important, i love the fact that god has put the Book of Mormon on the earth, and the book is another testament of Jesus Christ, and explains so much teachings and helped me through my life trials. Basically, my church has helped me in my life so much, i am willing to serve for 2 years to bring his heavenly children back to him, and meet new faces and invite them to the true church of god, Jesus Christ, and the holy spirit.

How I live my faith

When i was a teen, i attended scouts, youth activities, service, any activities that the church has had to offer to me, to strengthen my connection to god. And like i said, i am now serving a 2 year mission, because i love my church so much, and cause God has asked me to do so. I try my best to set the example to others, its definitely not easy being a Mormon but it is so worth it!!!!
