Hi I'm Geoff

I am a college student. I love my sports and to draw, and I have been called to be a missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a freshman in college and studying to be an architect. But, after this first year I will be leaving to serve a full time mission. I like sports. I have played them my whole life. My favorite one to play were ice hockey, football and run track. I also did wrestle and I played baseball for a little bit. I like to draw, hence the profession that I am seeking. I also have the dream of going to the naval academy and being a pilot in the navy after my mission. I also love cars. My 78 jeep cj5 is the love in my life and my dream car. I restored it from a frame with an engine sitting on it. But I also like trucks, especially the old ones with the rounded fenders like the 50's cheverolets, Dodges and GMCs. I also like the american muscle and pony cars. I enjoy the outdoors and anything that goes with that. I am number five of six in my family. I have three other brothers who I am very close with and two older sisters. My younger brother and I are the only ones left in the house with my father and mother. I love my family very much. They mean so much to me. I am so grateful to be an uncle to five now.

Why I am a Mormon

The biggest reason that I am a Mormon is because we believe that we have come to this earth for a purpose. This life is a test, and there is life after we die here. One of the things that we strive for and do our best to achieve is to live with our Heavenly Father again and be with our family forever, even after death. It brings me great joy and happiness knowing that my family and I can be together for all time and eternity once we are done on this world. It is one of the things I love about this church. I know that my savior Jesus Christ lives and he came to this earth to die for all our sins and we can be forgiven for all of our transgressions. The book of Morman works hand in hand with the bible and tells a powerful history of the gospel on the Americas. I believe in this church and know of the happiness it brings, and I know that it can bring anyone the same joy I feel and answer many questions that they may have. I am excited to go out on a mission and serve other people and to put our heavenly father's wishes and wants before my own and do his will. There is absolutely nothing that I want to do more right now. I know that this is Christ's church, and the true church of Jesus Christ. We have a living prophet and twelve apostles on the earth now, and God still speaks to all on the earth through them. We are all his chidren, and he loves each and everyone of us. There is nothing more that he wants then for us to return to him, and live with him again.

How I live my faith

Everyday, especially now, I try to be a good example to people around me. I always try to be the best that I can and do the right thing. I want to live the best life that I can and maybe impact those I meet in a good way. I have just entered the life of an adult and have so much to learn. I am now considered to be a young single adult. One of the things that I do for my church is I arrange who is to teach the lessons on sunday and who has snow shovelings duty when it snows each sunday before church begins and the other members arrive. All of this is done and made possible by the other members volunteering to do this service when it is needed. Each and every day I read the scriptures and study them first thing in the morning. I am doing many other things to prepare to serve my Heavenly Father in a full time two year mission. I am doing service and strengthening my understanding and knowledge in our Heavenly Father and his son.
