Hi I'm Colby Scott Jeffers

I grew up in Mapleton. I LOVE being Outdoors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My family is everything to me! I have a really strong relationship with them and i know that it is through the gospel of Jesus Christ and spending time with them that we have grown so close. I love being outdoors, there is nothing better for me. I love Baseball in the spring, in the summer its all about rodeo's and fishing, by the time fall rolls around its time to play some football and of course don't forget about hunting season! And to finish the year off I love to go snowmobiling and the occasional duck hunt is always nice. Life for me is all about enjoying the small moments, there aint nothin better than country music and a campfire with the family or friends.

Why I am a Mormon

The reason that i am a mormon is because of the way i feel when i read the book of mormon. When i read the book of mormon or the bible i get this feeling inside that calms me down and makes me feel like everything is alright. I have seen the blessings from living the gospel in my life and in the lifes of others as i have seen them put forth the effort to do the right things and follow the exaple that Jesus Christ set for us. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints is the only true church upon the earth today because it is the exact same church that Christ set up when he walked the earth. I know that Joseph Smith restored christs church and I know that Thomas S Monson is the true and living prophet upon the earch today. I Have seen the blessing in my life and i know that blessings will come into your life as you search for the truth. I know that I have a loving Heavenly Father and that he loves each and everyone of us. I know that he answers our prayers and he is willing to do anything and everything he can for us as long as we put in the effort and do our part.

How I live my faith

Right now i am a missionary in the California Los Angeles Mission, so that means i am out in a white shirt and tie everyday teaching people about Jesus Christ and how they can grow closer to him. I really love getting to know and talking with new people. I have realized that no matter who you are or what you like to do, that the gospel of Jesus Christ can always be applied in your life somehow. My favorite thing about mission work is listening to people, it really brings me joy when i have the opportunity to sit down with someone i don't know and talk with them. I also love to serve and try and serve in any way i can.
