Hi I'm Jeff

I'm a husband, father of special needs children, and a dentist. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have a wonderful wife and am a father of 2 beautiful girls. Both girls have Angelman Syndrome which includes mental and physical impairments. Sometimes life can be challenging with special children, but it can also be very fun and rewarding. I am also a dentist and enjoy helping others enhance their smile and life. I enjoy driving cars and woodworking. I am a WVU grad and a loyal Mountaineer fan.

Why I am a Mormon

 I grew up in the church, but didn't really gain a testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ until after my teenage years. I knew it was good, but probably didn't fully understand the importance in my life. Through experiences, study, and prayer, I now can say that the Gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored to the earth to bless us. I wouldn't trade this knowledge for anything else in this world.

How I live my faith

 Because there is no paid ministry in the church, we as members get to participate in many aspects of the Gospel, including teaching, missionary work, and leadership roles. I have participated, in different ways, in all of those roles during my membership in the church. Although we all stumble at times, I strive the be a good person so that I may have His Spirit with me. This helps me have joy and peace in my life and in the life of my family.

Why do some call Mormonism a cult?

Jeff
I truly think that it is because they don't understand what we believe in. There is still, even in this age of instant information, a lot of misunderstanding out there. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is simple and logical with doctrines that will bring joy to your life. Show more Show less

Do Mormons regard the Bible as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Jeff
The Bible is the word of God that have been revealed to the world through prophets. It is also gives the wonderful experiences and words of our Savior, Jesus Christ. We can learn much about His Gospel from the Holy Bible. Show more Show less
