Hi I'm Jeff Brummer

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up with a great family. My parents were able to adopt me (more on that later) and my other sister and then able to have a child on their own. So I have two sisters but I probably treated them like brothers more than I should have:) My Dad taught me to stay active and so I loved sports growing up and especially golf and soccer. I grew to love being an entrepreneur at a young age as a friend and I started selling golf balls. We would go to the local golf course when I was 14 and search for golf balls that players would hit into the weeds and muddy lake and turn around and sell them to them for .50 cents to $1. I have been self employed most of my life since then. I have 3 beautiful kids originating from a more beautiful wife and consider myself lucky.

Why I am a Mormon

I love truth and the truth makes you happy and gives you hope. As a parent now I understand why you want to give your children the knowledge you have and do the best with what they learn from you and that is important. My parents did just that thru their lives and who they were. Gospel morals and examples of Christlike living gave them the opportunity to adopt me. Even before they did this good choices where being made by people they didn't know that would affect my parent's lives forever. My birth Mom wanted to join the church after her Sister had found the gospel and found the happiness it had brought her. When she became pregnant thru an unplanned/unmarried pregnancy she made the best decision she could at the time which was to give me up for adoption. She knew she wanted an LDS family to have me because of the standards that most live. So that is how I was introduced to the church, by great parents. My turning point happened in my late teens and I needed to make some major life choices. I knew the gospel of Jesus Christ was a good thing but never had a strong conviction if I felt I could align my life with it's teachings all the time more than being just a casual church goer. It was time to choose to serve a mission or not and I wasn't sure. I prayed for answers and felt ok about going but didn't voice it out loud until one day my Dad talked about some of my future choices and that I should probably decide if I was going to college or a mission. I said I was going to go on a mission and I think we were both surprised to hear it out of my mouth but after I said it I felt good about it. It was the best decision of my life as I grew mentally, spiritually and socially more than anything else I would have done in that time. My testimony boils down to having faith to do and looking back and seeing if that was a good choice. Although almost never easy I can see as I live the principles I am blessed at some point down the road and I am happier.

How I live my faith

Currently I am teaching the Sunday school class for 10 year olds. I really enjoy it.
