Hi I'm Jeffrey Christensen

I grew up in Herriman Utah and i love sports,and live life to the fullest!!!

About Me

I'm 20 years old played tons of sports loved living in Utah where i could also dirt-bike, and snowboard for 15 years. I also really enjoy boating and hanging out with my friends when we aren't getting into trouble. So for years i had been relying on my parent testimony and would attend church every week to keep them happy, but i had never really had my own desire to go to church. In my high school years living in Herriman Utah it was a little easier to keep the standards that my parents wanted me to have. My testimony and faith in this church was tested more during these 4 years than ever before. I was blessed with many gifts in the field of sports and friends. Your friends can really help you when life's challenges are sent your way! I loved playing Football it was my life, and it wasn't till a had heard "Life Is A Football Game" by Troy Dunn that i realized that Heavenly Father loves me personally, and has given opportunities to help others improve as well as myself. This talk had forever change my future i thought sports and being popular was all that mattered. This talk really opened my eyes and put all of the key points of the gospel in a way that i could understand it, and apply it to my life. I worked for 1 year after high school at Utah Valley Regional Medical Center as a Pharmacy Technician in the robot automation department. This job made it possible to pay for my mission where i currently am serving in the Missouri St. Louis mission.

Why I am a Mormon

Im mormon because I personally have found the Book of Mormon to be true, and i know god answers our prayers. I have seen firsthand how this church is a family and will help those who are in need, and they show their love to everyone. Next time you see a natural disaster on TV look to see who puts out their helping hand 1st! I know it will be the Church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints:)

How I live my faith

I live my faith right now by serving my mission for 2 years i started this on June 6th 2012 and have been out for almost 14 months and i wouldnt trade it for the world! I have learned so many skills out here on my mission every door that we knock on there is another child of god and everyone of them is different and unique. The level of love that i have for the people im serving is unreal, and is opening my eyes to so many new goals for my life. I now know why they stress missions so much to all those who are whorthy to go! The mission builds you in so many ways i cant even explain how awesome it is. You will be tried in every way possible, but the lord can and will get you through anything you're going through!!!

What are Mormon Temples used for?

Jeffrey Christensen
The Temple is the best place ever every time you go there whether your inside the temple or outside looking at the beauty the spirit testifies to you that your a child of god and he loves you! If you ever get the chance to go to an open house I guarantee that you will feel this and it will change your life forever. Show more Show less
