Hi I'm Jeff

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm married to my high school sweetheart. I'm a dad of 3 great kids. I run a family business. I enjoy camping, hockey and football.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a good Mormon family. I always believed in God and Jesus Christ but never really tried to gain a testimony of Joseph Smith and the restoration of Christ's Church. I never really piggy-backed on my parents' testimonies, just did the bare minimum. Due to being prideful and selfish, I wasted a lot of valuable time being one foot barely in the church. Thankfully my Heavenly Father gave me many chances to open my eyes and discover what this short life is about. Through my Savior and His great Sacrifice, I have been able to receive a clean slate and head in the right direction. I have discovered that His plan brings me more joy, gives me more freedoms and is very different then my old selfish plan.

How I live my faith

I have been able to work with the youth and adults at my local church. I have been able to work in leadership roles as well as a teacher.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Getting to know your Father in Heaven is something you have full control of and He is waiting for your efforts. I think the best way to do this is by keeping His commandments and proving your love to Him. It makes sense that you would also need to learn about Him. The best way to do that is found in His words which most people have easy access to through the scriptures and through the words of the living Prophets and Apostles. Another way would be to communicate with Him in Prayer through the power of The Holy Spirit. You can do this anywhere and anytime. After all of these efforts, you need have faith in Him and joyfully admit that He is who He is and that you are literally His Child. Show more Show less
