Hi I'm Geoffrey

From coast to coast, ending up in PA on a mission, I love the outdoors, technology and music, and yes I am one of them!! Mormon!!

About Me

I am a simple guy. Born in Luxembourg, moved to MA and finally landed in CA! I love food, obviously Oreo's are the bomb with some Code Red Mountain Dew! I love the outdoors, mostly hiking and going to the beach. My goal one day is to hike the PCT(Pacific Crest Trail) and I have already hiked the tallest peak in the US, Mount Whitney, but I want to accomplish something bigger. The beach I love, the water is a bit chilly although I love to just play on the beach and chill in the sand. I love sports, I am not particularly good at any single sport although I love to play Ultimate Frisbee, Tennis, Volleyball and Soccer. I played Soccer and Tennis in High School and coming out on my mission I have developed a deep love for the game Ultimate Frisbee, its a ton of fun when you are with the right people. Where am I now? I am in the great and spacious state known as Pennsylvania! I came December of 2014 and it was a bugger going from California Sunshine to Pennsylvania Winter. Then in the heat of spring and summer the humidity will suck the air right out of you and you'll feel like taking another shower right as you step out the door. Although Pennsylvania weather and I don't agree I will admit the people and seasons do!! I have loved seeing all the seasons and all the colors that you see, especially in the Spring and Fall! The people here are a hoot! I have had the funniest experiences with the people out here, some of these youngens are the bestest I has ever met in me life!

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I believe in the teachings of this religion, generally I don't like to read and frankly I don't, although when reading the Book of Mormon and King James Bible I never get distracted and able to really absorb the teachings from the scriptures. I am also Mormon because of the church's teachings, I feel that the person I am and the person I am becoming are thanks to the teachings of the church, I feel that without the influence of the gospel and those who are LDS in my life I would have turned out differently and I don't know if that change would have been for the better. I am Mormon because I believe in the church and the teachings it offers and the people I know who are Mormon and hope to be like them one day.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in Northern-California, living in a city with a very active Mormon community I live my faith just by being an example and showing the standards I have with my LDS and non-LDS friends. I focus a lot of my attention on just being an example because I live with my faith by attending church and reading the scriptures although I might not be the best missionary due to not really talking about my faith but the little kind acts of everyday with my clean appearance and speech, generally people will say I am a good young man and how did I become the person I am? I can only respond with being Mormon and the teachings the church has, helping out your fellow man and being clean in your presentation to the world. I would really struggle without my little reminders from pictures on the walls and my scriptures to follow the commandments so I have those to show me to live my life.
