Hi I'm Jeff

I am a husband, a father, a gearhead, a sand freak, a football fanatic and....I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the well adjusted middle child amongst six from Phoenix, Arizona. I served a mission in Brazil and speak Portuguese and Spanish. I met my wife in Hawaii while attending school and being lazy on the beach. We are super busy between our two fabulous kids and running our own business. In my free time (ha!) I love to go quadding in the dunes with my family, watch college footbal games, and be lazy on the beach in San Diego. I love to get my hands greasy and fix stuff...except when I get in over my head.

Why I am a Mormon

One of the biggest reasons that I am a Mormon is because I know it is only through the restored gospel of Jesus Christ that I can live with my family in the presence of God forever. I have had the blessing of being able to enter into the temple of God and be sealed to my wife and kids forever...and that brings me the most joy of all. I know why God sent me here to earth and I know what He wants me to accomplish while here. I also know where I will go when I leave this earth. I know that Jesus Christ is God's son, that He came to this earth and lived a perfect life, that He willingly paid for my sins, and that He let Himself be crucified for my sake. I know Jesus Christ lives and that he went through all this because He loves me. I am a Mormon because I have studied the Bible and the Book of Mormon, prayed about the principles taught there, and I have recieved a testimony of their truth. I know it and I know God knows that I know it.

How I live my faith

I try to be the best person that I can 100% of the time...not just when I am at church or around church members. I do my best to follow the example of the Savior and I know that I fall short on occasion. We all do but that is okay because He will help us do better if we will only let Him. Having been trusted with the Lord's Priesthood, I know that it is given for the purpose of helping and serving others. I am trying to be more compassionate, charitable, and understanding. I seek for opportunities to influence people's lives for good and be their friend. I think there is a great shortage of true friendship in the world. Having a true friend can make all the difference in someone's life.
