Hi I'm Jeff

I play rugby. I'm a falconer. I'm a writer, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

After a week and a half from graduating high school, I served a full time Spanish-speaking mission in San Fernando, California. From my experiences from sharing the gospel, I feel so much closer to the Savior. During my high school years, I have pursued football, track, falconry, drawing, music, writing, and rugby. I am currently attending UVU and plan to become a psychiatrist.

Why I am a Mormon

Although my parents have taught me how to actively participate in the church, I have chosen to do so on my own. As I have lived a life within the church and lived a life in Christ's footsteps, I have realized that it has made me the happiest I could ever be. It does take sacrifice to be a good member of the church, but it's more like an investment than a sacrifice because the rewards are great, even the rewards in this life. As I was a missionary not only has my testimony been confirmed by experience after experience, I am beginning to understand the great importance of the Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Though, I know only a fragment of what Our Heavenly Father knows, I do know this: Through the Prophet Joseph Smith, our Lord Jesus Christ has brought forth the Book of Mormon and the Restoration of His Gospel, the same Gospel He once taught during His earthly ministry. I have this testimony, because testimonies are obtained through the Spirit of Prophecy (Revelations 19:10). I testify of this in the name of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

As a young man, I have been in several leadership positions within my age group. I primarily have helped plan out youth group activities and encourage the young men in my quorum to actively participate in these activities. I have attended seminary in all four years of high school. Along with daily personal study, I have developed a deeper understanding of the scriptures, including the Bible and the Book of Mormon, and grew a stronger faith in Jesus Christ. After serving a full-time mission, I continue to pursue anyway I can serve the Lord, even if it is just as simple as talking to a friend.
