Hi I'm Jeffrey Hammond

I am married, podiatry student, live in Cleveland, OH and a Mormon

About Me

I am married to my dream girl and we are both in medical school. I am a podiatry student and my wife in MD school. I love sports, art, music, family and food. I also love being a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

The reason that I am a Mormon is because of the happiness it brings in to my everyday life. I wake up in the morning knowing that I have a Heavenly father that loves me and wants me to be happy. I can pray and have a personal relationship with my Heavenly Father. I live the commandments of God and I receive many blessings because of it. I know that I will live with my wife and future family forever in the true restored gospel of Jesus Christ. My faith in God allows me to comfortable with myself and who I am. I can feel the love of my Heavenly Father every day and know that I can be comfortable in my own skin. I do not have to worry about the many voices of the world telling me what to do and what is "cool". I am happy with my personality, professional goals, and my marriage because I know that I am a child of a loving Heavenly Father. I am a Mormon because I know it is true and that I can have an eternal life and family.

How I live my faith

I live my faith with great joy, happiness and peace. Me and my wife spend part of our everyday life praying to our Heavenly Father, reading the Bible and Book of Mormon, doing service and spending time together. I am very busy with school, but I live my faith with a smile and a constant search to do service for anyone I see. I am always trying to become a better person, husband and child of my Heavenly Father. In my congregation I teach a Sunday school class every couple weeks. We discuss topics of the Bible, Book of Mormon, faith, love, family, the atonement of Jesus Christ and how families can be together forever. I enjoy attending church services every Sunday with my wife to remember the Savior Jesus Christ and his sacrifice for us. While me and my wife attend medical school and find it hard to be together often, we cherish the time we have. We love one another and we know that we can live together forever as long as we follow the commandments of God. We are excited about our future careers as physicians, but also the future of having children and building a family upon the word of God. We live with faith and we know the God lives and will bless us.
