Hi I'm Jeff

I'm a recovering addict and a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a 38 year old Logistics Manager for an Agricultural Equipment Distributor in California and I enjoy Fly Fishing and exploring California's beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountains in my spare time. I take a special interest in U.S. History and the U.S. Constitution. I believe that America's Founding Fathers were Divinely inspired and that freedom can prosper only through faith in and obedience to God. I proudly served in the U.S. Navy during Operation Desert Storm. My wife and I have one child, a nine year old boy. My family is my greatest blessing and they bring me unlimited amounts of joy. Because of their unconditional love and long suffering I was able to overcome a potentially tragic struggle with multiple addictions. I am grateful for their sacrifice and love them eternally.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a naturally curious person who questions conventional wisdom and tests everything I'm told. My religion challenges me to ask questions about the beginning, the end of this life and all things beyond and to experiment upon the precepts of The Book of Mormon. I am a Mormon because The Lord wants us to "find Him" and only the true Gospel can show me how.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by reminding those around me who are struggling that things aren't always as bad as they seem and that with a little effort on our part God can and will help us do amazing things.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Mormons absolutely help people other than themselves, so much so that sometimes those not in need run and hide when they see the Mormons skipping down the road. :D Show more Show less

Is it true that Jesus appeared in North America after his crucifixion and resurrection according to the Book of Mormon?

We know that people populated the Americas during and prior to Christ's time here on Earth. He atoned for all of man kinds sins and his sacrifice was a gift to all people on Earth, I believe that in His triumphant return from the dead He would want all people to know that He lives. Yes, He appeared not only to people in the America's but also to those on the Islands of the Sea. He gave them knowledge and taught them many things. Show more Show less
