Hi I'm Jeff Garland

I grew up in Louisiana, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband and a dad with two beautiful daughters. I love to read and watch movies. I believe Louisiana has the best food in the world. I am a teacher, and I am a huge New Orleans Saints fan. 

Why I am a Mormon

I was a typical Louisianan in every sense. I did not think that I really needed Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ to guide me through life. However, through personal prayer, I know the Book of Mormon is the true word of God. I have tested the the challenge to find out for myself and now know that Joseph Smith translated the Golden Plates. We, YOU and I, have a living prophet on the earth and he is called of God.

How I live my faith

I pray often. I try to be the father, husband, and Latter-Day Saint that Heavenly Father wants me to be. I am a missionary every day and a child of God. I try to serve my fellow man and gain great joy from service.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Jeff Garland
Take the challenge find out for yourself. Do not let other tell you what to believe, read the Book of Mormon, and pray to Heavenly Father that you may know of the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon. I testify that if you pray sincerely, you too will receive the answer from Hevenly Father!  Show more Show less
