Hi I'm Jeff

I am a Farmer, a Landscape and Wildlife Photographer, a Husband, a Father, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a fifth generation farmer and my wife and I are very blessed to be the parents of a very energetic eight year old boy and a beautiful little girl who is now two years old. With my father I operate a dryland grain farm, part of which goes back to my Great Grandfather. I love working in the outdoors and enjoying Gods creations. The farm provides great opportunities to be with family that many other jobs don't afford us. In my spare time I love to take in the beautiful surroundings that our Father in Heaven has blessed us with and share it with others through my hobby of landscape photography.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Mormon Church, however it was still important for me to gain my own testimony of the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. While these were very personal experiences and came for the most part in small pieces a little at a time, I will say that the strongest witness of the spirit came as I was about to finish reading the Book of Mormon for the first time. I was going through a really hard time and the answers I received from the Book of Mormon and the witness of the spirit which accompanied it helped me through those challenges.

How I live my faith

As a farmer I believe in using the resources I have been blessed with to produce crops that are to be used for good wholesome food products. Today my Father and I grow wheat, which is sold for flour, and barley, which is primarily sold to dairys and beef cattle operations for feed. We have been commanded to be a record keeping people, so my one of my church responsibilities is to see that a permanent record is kept of all the goings on around the ward and submit it to the stake at the end of the year as well a keep a copy for access of those in the ward. I was also recently called as an assistant to the high priest group leader. This gives me the opportunity to serve and help to see that local church members needs are taken care of and by doing so I have the privilege of working with a great bunch of guys. Recently I have also been training to become licensed as an amateur (Ham) radio operator. By doing this I know that I will be able to play a vital role in the community in case of a natural disaster or widespread emergency situation.
