Hi I'm Jeff

I speak Korean. I am a law student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love sports. College and professional, if there is a sport to be seen, I am watching it. I especially love the BYU Cougars, USC Trojans, LA Dodgers, NY Jets, and the LA Lakers. I am almost done with law school, and after school I plan on becoming a district attorney. One of my favorite things to do is watch live theatre. I have the opportunity to attend several plays on Broadway, and it has always been a very rewarding experience.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church, but that does not mean that I automatically was locked in as a member. I decided, on my own, to be Mormon after reading, studying, questioning, doubting, and praying about the Book of Mormon. I know by the power and prompting of the Holy Spirit that the Book of Mormon is true. Because the Book of Mormon is the word of God, I know that Heavenly Father has a plan for each and every one of us, and that through the atonement of Jesus Christ, we can return to live with him and with our families for eternity. I also know that there are prophets on the earth today that teach us the will of God, much like how the prophets in the Old and New Testaments. Being Mormon is great and I urge everybody to check out Book of Mormon, and find out for themselves to see if it is true.

How I live my faith

As a member of the Mormon Church, you are given a lot of responsibility, and opportunities to serve your community. I get to teach a class about the gospel of Jesus Christ every week at church. Recently, when there was a lot of flooding in our area, the Church organized clean-up teams and I was able to participate in that service. There are always opportunities to help each other out, and I am always looking for ways to serve. As a Mormon, I do not drink alcohol or smoke, but that does not mean I can not have fun. I try to live in such a way that truly shows that restored gospel of Jesus Christ leads to happiness, not to being dull and boring.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

Jeff
The purpose of life is gain experience, to build meaningful relationships, and prepare ourselves to return to God. The things we do during our life will have a great effect on the lives of others, as well as what becomes of us in the afterlife. As we learn more about the gospel of Jesus Christ, and follow his example, the purpose of life will become more and more clear. Show more Show less
