Hi I'm Jeff

I live in Washington State. I am a father, lawyer, guitarist, scouter. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father who considers that role the most important in my life. I love to work with my sons and their friends in Scouting. While I dreamed of spending all my time playing guitar, I gave in to practicality and became a lawyer. Playing guitar in the outdoors merges my two great loves.

Why I am a Mormon

The ability to seek my Father in Heaven's advice through revelation is important to me. I seek His help every day. The seeking is rewarded with answers in thoughts and feelings that help me work toward becoming like my Father in Heaven. I have sought a spiritual witness of the truth of Jesus Christ's mission to save mankind from their sins and received that witness. I also have sought a spiritual witness of Joseph Smith's work restoring Christ's Church on the earth. Through reading the Book of Mormon I have been able to obtain a witness that Jesus is the Christ and accept that the priesthood of God has been restored through Joseph Smith. I am a Mormon because I believe the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is God's Church.

How I live my faith

I work with young men (12- 18 year olds) who are seeking to have adventures which we provide through Scouting. While they have these adventures I hope to model how they should live their lives. The young men see me and the other adult leaders as people who love them, expect great things from them, and seek the Lord even though we are imperfect. By seeing us work with them on camp-outs and other activities they see we are merely men seeking to live the live Jesus Christ would want us to. It helps the young men see how to act in every day events. Every Mormon boy needs to gain their own testimony of the Savior Jesus Christ, and a witness that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is his Church. I hope to help them get the knowledge and opportunities to feel the Spirit of God in their lives.
