Hi I'm Jeffrey Oliver

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a father of two super-hero obsessed boys and the husband of a super-hero wife. We live in Northern Virginia. I enjoy reading, biking, volleyball (though my shoulder tells me I'm getting too old) and road trips.

Why I am a Mormon

There is a peace and power that comes from living the doctrines of Christ that I take to be evidence of truth. I have often made the mistake of thinking that such a Christ-centered life is immediately easier than one devoted to individual pursuits. It isn't. Faith requires consistent effort and is, almost by definition, a renunciation of whichever path of least resistance is presently available.

How I live my faith

One thing I love about my church is its focus on Christ-like service. I am most satisfied and at peace with my life when I manage something useful for someone else. It is so liberating to forget myself (and yet so hard to do)!
