Hi I'm Jeff

I grew up in Albuquerque, NM. I've lived all over the United States and in South Korea. I still love to eat each Kimchi.

About Me

I am a father. I'm married and have 4 wonderful children. I enjoy driving sports cars. I also enjoy taking 4X4 trucks off-road.

Why I am a Mormon

My great grandfather joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Ireland. Because of that my parents are members and I grew up in the Church. Although I grew up in the Church, I've had the opportunity to attend other religious denominations with friends or family. But I choose to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It is because of what I feel in my heart.

How I live my faith

I feel that my life has purpose and direction. As I live and focus on Jesus Christ I'm able to set my priorities in order each day. Currently I serve as a leader in my local congregation. I try to help others feel welcome and feel part of our organization. For example, when new members move in to our area I coordinate move-in help for them. I enjoy teaching other members the Gospel of Jesus Christ in their homes and being a friend to them.

How can faith in Jesus Christ influence us in our marriages and family relationships? in our friendships?

A successful marriage requires faith in God and faith in each other. Shared faith in God binds married couples and families together in a commitment to common values. It helps us find strength to overcome obstacles. Faith in God helps couples and families face uncertainty and live life with the proper perspective. Show more Show less
