Hi I'm Jeff Rhoton

I currently live in Arizona, I'm a husband, a father, I coach my boys soccer and basketball teams, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

The most important thing in my life is my wife and my four children. My two oldest children are in college and one is in high school and another in elementary school. Having three boys, sports has been a big part of our life. I've coached most of their sports teams and currently coach soccer and basketball, I lived in the Philippines for two years as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. We have lived in many different places from Southern California to Memphis, Tennessee to Chandler, Arizona to Riverton, Utah and for the past 10 years we are back in Arizona. I work in the travel/technology industry. I love to play with the internet / computers / phones or anything regarding new technology. I like to sing and think I'm pretty good though that is probably open for discussion with members of my family. I love to kareoke which probably tells you what caliber of singer I really am. I can juggle (3 not 5 balls) and own two unicycles and would love to learn to juggle while riding a unicycle but right now my two youngest boys are the unicycle riders in the family. I love to read and like John Grisham as an author since we lived in Memphis for three years. My wife and I have had an eBay business for the past 5 years and recently started selling on Amazon.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I love how family oriented the church is. Everything we do is centered around the family. I actually don't know what my life would be like without being a Mormon because almost every day, there is something that we do in our family that is related to our church. From church on Sunday, to family nights on Monday, to youth activities during the week and service activities when needed, most of our time is spent in building up the family or serving others.

How I live my faith

I love the saying, "How do you live your life when no one is watching?" I live my faith by really trying to do what's right all the time, whether by myself or with my family or with people that have no idea who I am. I truly believe that people will learn more about my character and how I live my life by what I do and not by what I say. I've tried to raise my children in a way that they will always want to do the right thing and be in the right places at the right times. I love how no matter where have lived in the United States, we always have a church family that are willing to take us in as their family as soon as we move in. The church is the same no matter where you are in the world and that makes the church seem small enough to care about each individual yet we have members of the church that believe the same as I do in every part of the world. Our family does everything together. On Sunday's we go to church together. On Sunday nights we meet together to go over the weekly calendar of activities. On Monday nights we stay home and have family night. The weekeds we support each other by attending everyone's sporting events or campouts or service projects. It's all about the family!
