Hi I'm Jeff Glauser

I am from the town they call So Jo. I love sports, anything outdoors, family, and music! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the youngest of 6 kids in my family. Yes, I did get beat up a lot from my brothers and those pesky sisters. I grew up going to church with my family. After high school graduation, I went on a mission to the wonderful country of Brazil. I met the best people there and became more converted to the gospel because of them. I am blessed to have married the most amazing woman ever. She is a beautiful, hardworkin' nurse. I graduated with a BA in linguistics. I enjoy sports, languages, woodworking, and hanging out with my wife. I love learning about the scriptures and the history of the church.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because being a member of this church has changed my life for the better. I have felt the Holy Ghost multiple time confirming that this is the right place to be. I genuinely love this religion. I have an immense love for my Savior, I know that He lives and that He guides this church through the medium of a prophet. The Book of Mormon and prayer will help you find out who you are and why you are here on this earth. Serving in the church and serving others has brought me a great joy. I pray that others might be able to taste of this joy and feel the veracity of this church. I know it is possible for anyone who diligently seeks the truth to find it. This gospel has guided my life many times when I did not know where to go. I am trying to dedicate my life to the Savior of all mankind and give back a little for all that He has done for me. This is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I love serving in this church. Selfless service always invites the spirit for me. Everyday I strive to read my scriptures and some church material to prepare myself spiritually for that day and to put on the armor of God. This helps me get through the day being strong enough to resist any temptation and to be an example to others around me. I try to live my life so that others know that I am faithful member of this church. Loving those around me and showing them I care is what I strive to do. I also am fond of participating in temple work, helping with the salvation for the dead, doing vicarious ordinances in temples across the world.
