Hi I'm Jeff Young

I'm a husband, father, grandfather, attorney, financial adviser who loves to play the drums. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband, father and grandfather. Although I am I great, great grandson of Brigham Young, I was brought up attending the Methodist Church. After 22 successful years in the oil and gas industry, I changed careers. Since 2004 I have established a successful estate planning and financial advisory business. I am the author of a published book titled, "How to Receive Discernible Answers to Your Prayers." I am energized when I am with my family, meeting with clients, traveling and playing the drums--particularly old-time rock and roll. In my travels, I have passed through 70 U.S. airports and 18 foreign airports.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the church's organization, scriptures, doctrines, teachings and principles work for me. The questions that I have had, both academic and spiritual, are answered by the teachings and practices that make up the gospel of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. My answers have come from personal study and personal prayer.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by actively participating in church activities. These activities have included being a Sunday school teacher, working with the youth, serving in various committee and administrative capacities, and putting on large social events. When the occasion permits, I join with others in various service projects such as Colorado Cares Day. I am conscientious of the standards I'm expected to maintain; consequently, I strive to be a person of integrity in all by personal and business interactions.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Jeff Young
When I look at myself and the things around me, it is obvious that I am neither an accident, nor the result of some chance evolving process. My physical and intellectual capacities provide evidence to me that there is an all-knowing, all-powerful God, who knows and understands me, as well as the world and universe around me. I feel I have total clarity, in my heart and mind, that my immediate earthly surroundings, the solar system and our universe, were created intentionally, to benefit mankind and accomplish God's purposes.
