Hi I'm Jeff

I am a husband, father, brother, son, seminary teacher and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been happily married for almost 10 years. We have two wonderful children and third on the way! Most of my extra time outside of work and school is spent with my family. We love to hike, swim and climb. When I get a chance, I get out on the soccer pitch.

Why I am a Mormon

Becoming a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was one of the best choices I've ever made. I became a member because I had the desire to follow the Savior. I wanted to follow Christ and found that the doctrine taught in the church filled voids in my life. I find peace and comfort knowing the I am a child of God and that Christ lived and died so that I can return home to my Heavenly Father after this life.

How I live my faith

I have loved the opportunity to serve in my community and church. In the church I participate by making visits to the homes of the families. We share a short message from the scriptures and help wherever we can. Sometimes we help families move or do small service projects to improve our community. I think the small things I do every day motivated by my testimony of the Savior have had the greatest impact on my life. I love that when I serve others I am serving God.

Which of the Savior’s teachings have influenced you in your life?

The Savior teaches me a lot about myself through the world around me. In the book of Genesis we learn about the creation of the earth and all things on the face of the earth. As I spend time exploring and appreciating God's creations I come to understand a little more His love for me. I marvel that the Savior would care enough for my family that He would create such an amazing place for us to enjoy. Show more Show less
