Hi I'm Jeff

I live in Arizona with my wife and two boys. I am a mortgage banker. I'm a sports fan. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I have lived in Arizona for about 20 years and truly love it here. I have been a missionary for the Mormon church in the wonderful country of Brazil, where I was able to share my testimony with the wonderful people that live there. I went to school at ASU for my Bachelor's and GCU for my MBA. I currently work at a corporate location of a bank in the mortgage division. I love coming home to my wife and 2 boys each day, they are my life and I love spending time with them. I have lived in Utah, Nevada, Colorado, and Arizona throughout my life and each of them have given me experiences to make me who I am today. I love to mountain bike, play sports, watch sports, go camping, and enjoy movies. Life is as good as we make it, so each day I look at as a new day to make my life a happy one.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon my whole life, but I have had moments where I wasn't going to church as often as I should. A few years ago I decided to make changes in my life and fully commit myself to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Even when I wasn't going to church I still felt like I had a great relationship with my Father in Heaven. I prayed to him regularly and knew that He would help me find my way back to Him. When I first went back to a Mormon church I felt the Spirit confirm to me that it was His church and that I needed to be there. From that day on, I have committed myself completely to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints...and since then, the blessings have poured down from Heaven. I know that God lives and that He is literally my Father. i know that He sent his Son, Jesus Christ, to the earth to die for us and atone for each one of us. Through this blessing, I know we can be forgiven for the sins we commit during this time on Earth. Our Father and the Savior love us more than we could ever imagine, and I feel that love from them in my heart each day. We all make mistakes and our Father in Heaven knew that would happen, so this is why He sent Jesus Christ to this Earth. I know that when we live our lives good that our Father in Heaven blesses us. I have felt those blessings as I have turned my heart and my priorities to Him. I love my Savior and thank Him daily for what he did for me. I know that each one of us can find happiness that we have never experienced in life through the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by constantly striving to do what's right. Like anyone, I struggle to accomplish this each day and rely on the Atonement of Jesus Christ to make up the difference. I pray each day individually, with my wife, and with my family; so I can communicate to my Father in Heaven my struggles, my gratitude, and the love I have for Him. I also read from the Holy Bible and Book of Mormon daily to learn from the Prophets of old and to understand my purpose here on the Earth. I go to church each week to commune with my Heavenly Father and make a promise to Him each week that I will do everything I can to keep His commandments and that I will make an effort to remember Him each day throughout my busy life. I serve as the Ward Clerk for my local church, which entails managing the finances and membership needs of my ward. I love serving in the Church because I feel like it's my chance to give something back to my Heavenly Father, who has given me everything.
