Hi I'm Jeff
I love rock climbing, peanut butter, my family, and I'm a Mormon.
I was born in Arizona, but have lived most of my life in Utah. I have one older and one younger sister and two younger brothers. I love sports and played soccer for most of my life. I also love rock climbing up in the canyon I lived by during school. I drummed and did band at my high school. I played tenors on my high school drumline for 3 years and was also in concert band, jazz band, steel drum band, and percussion ensembles at school. After graduating high school I attended college for a year and now I'm serving a 2-year, full time mission for the Church in the Texas, Houston East mission and am absolutely loving it!
Why I am a Mormon
The gospel has blessed me, my friends, and my family so much. I know it's true and that it is the only way we can return to live with God. It has brought me peace and happiness and many other blessings in my life and I'm serving a mission because I want other people to have the same knowledge I have and I know that's what God wants too. I know that God loves all of His children: everyone that has lived, is living, and ever will live, and so do I.
How I live my faith
All day, every day I preach the gospel to bring others to know Christ and to develop a relationship with Him. I know how the gospel can help people through trials and give them guidance in life because many people I know, including myself, have experienced it. I live the teachings of Christ and His prophets from Adam down to Thomas S. Monson, I read their teachings in the scriptures, I partake of the ordinances that Christ gave us so that we can come closer to Him, I pray to God and attend His Church, give service in my community, and am trying to live so that others can tell that Christ is my best friend.
