Hi I'm Jeffry A. Stoker

I grew up on a farm. I help people reach their full potential. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up on a small family farm in a large family. I grew up in the church, earned my Eagle Scout award, served a mission, graduated college, and now I help junior high students who struggle with keeping up in school get better grades in order to accomplish their full potential in life. I have five children, a wonderful wife, and hope to raise my kids the way I was, with hard work and love. I am involved with my children's schooling helping out with anything I can including coaching math team, soccer, and baseball. I love camping, hiking, water skiing, fishing, and sports. I root for the WSU Cougars, Mariners, and Seahwaks, But my family and my faith are the most important things to me.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I grew up in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints I was not a converted member until well into my mission. Life has taught me through experiences that I am always happier when I live according to the commandments of God. I have felt the Spirit testify to me, almost daily, that the gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored and that by following our Savior all of God's children can return to his holy presence. God lives and knows us all more personally than we can comprehend. He wants us to live according to his commandments so that we can prove our worthiness to live forever with him.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by answering the Lord's call wherever that leads. I work with my neighbors offering service where it is needed. I work with the school and community to make life better for those around me. I love working with the missionaries and do so every week. In my home we read the scriptures as a family and individuals, we go to church on Sunday, we pray as a family several times a day, and we participate in church activities.

Who was Joseph Smith?

Jeffry A. Stoker
Joseph Smith Jr. was the prophet chosen by God to restore the gospel in the last days. Through him many truths were restored such as the nature of God, our Heavenly Father, his Son, our Savior Jesus Christ, and our relationship to each. The prophet of the restoration was from humble beginnings and yet received the greatest visions and revelations from heaven of his time. Show more Show less
