Hi I'm Geoff

I currently live in Jordan. I study Physics and Arabic in college. Food brings me joy. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Right now I am living in Madaba, Jordan while I teach English at an Orthodox School. I am a Physics Major in school, but I also study Arabic. The main reason I am in Jordan right now is so that I can try and learn Arabic as fluently as I can. I love playing basketball, but a rotated hip keeps me from playing too much. I am a pretty skinny guy, but I can probably eat more food in a day than your entire family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I read the Book of Mormon and prayed to ask God if it was true. He told me it was. As I have continued to read the Book of Mormon, I have noticed a difference in my self, more than in those around me. Everytime I open the Scriptures, I have an overwhelming feeling of peace come over me. Whenever I attend church, I feel so welcome and the people there are always nice and willing to listen to you if you are going through a hard time. I know the Book of Mormon is true and I know that this Church is true and that there is a Living, Modern Prophet on the Earth today whose main purpose is to help us return to live with our Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

Ever since i was baptized into this church, I have felt a personal responsibility to help other who might be in need, whether they are members of the same church or not. I try to be an example to those around me by living a "Christ-like life". I try to help others find the happiness that i have found. It is something that i will try to do for the rest of my life.

What is being a Mormon like?

Being a member of this Church is one of the Greatest experiences you could ever have. The only thing you have to do in this church is try your best. The whole point to our lives is to live like Jesus would. When Jesus was calling his disciples, all he said to them was, "Come, follow me." We should do the same. We should use his life like an example and try our best to do what he would do. Show more Show less

What blessings can we receive through the gift of the Holy Ghost?

One of the best blessings the I have recieved from the Gift of the Holy Ghost, is the gift of Safety. I have had many experiences in my life when the Holy Ghost has told me to go somewhere and do something, and later I have found out that the Holy Ghost was just keeping me safe from temptation and danger. He also is called "the Comforter", and that is another blessing that He gives us. He can give us comfort that no other person on earth can even dream of giving. Show more Show less
