Hi I'm Jefferson

My name is Jefferson, I love hanging out with my family and friends and my dog Daisy.

About Me

I am an eighteen year old man who graduated May 2012. I enjoy making movies with my friends and studying different kinds of languages like Spanish and Mandarin. My favorite movies, books, or anything is Indiana Jones. My friends call me Indy. I am also a nerd, I love Star Trek. Captain Archer is my favorite.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to parents in the church, and I have been a member my whole life, but that doesn't mean I have had it easy. The end of my senior year in high school was really ruff. I started to doubt everything I had been taught, and really didn't know if all of it was true. One day, I had something happen that I didn't know would change my life, but it did. I lost my keys. I couldn't find them anywhere. I checked the spots I usually put them, and I checked everywhere else in my room, or in the rest of the house. Nothing. This whole time, in the back of my mind, something kept telling me to get on my knee's and pray, but no, I wouldn't. After a few hours of intense searching, I had enough. One last thought came to my head once again. Pray. "Fine," I said to myself. I got to my knees, and before I even began the pray, I realized they were sitting right in front of me in plain sight. To me, this small and miraculous miracle saved me. I realized the church was true, I felt so bad for doubting. From that point on, I have lived to my full potential and now I am going on a mission to Everett, Washington.

How I live my faith

I try to always be my best in everything I do. I have kept myself worthy to serve a mission. I am going to the Washington Everett Mission.

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

Jefferson
Personally, I have found multiple blessings from scriptures. My favorite blessing that comes from reading the scriptures is that when I do, my day always is nice. I feel at peace. Life is not overwhelming. Each time you read the scriptures with an open heart diligently seeking to learn something, you will have a blessing of peace. Show more Show less
