Hi I'm Jeffrey Foutz

I grew up in Sacramento, California. I play all manner of sports as well as the guitar. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've never really been much of a follower, mostly because i hate waiting around for something to come up. I've always been the "doer." I love to play all sports, but basketball and soccer will always be my favorite. I am a Biology major with the goal of going to UOP upon graduation to become a Dentist. After UOP, I want to specialize to become an Orthodontist. I am the 4th of 7 kids. I have 3 older brothers, and 1 younger brother and 2 younger sisters. I am currently serving a mission in the Texas, Fort Worth Mission. I love this Church, and I love this Gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in this church, so finding the gospel was not hard. However,just because I was born into it, doesn't mean its been easy. Born into the church or not, every person has to find out for themselves, the truthfulness of this Gospel. For me It was when I was about 16. One of my teacher at church posed a rhetorical question to the class. "When did you you know that the Gospel was true?" I realized that I still hadn't taken the time to do that. So with much prayer and study, I decided to find out for myself. I didn't have some awesome story of angels singing or some huge revelation, but the next time I was asked that question, I knew that the church was true. Being Mormon, we are always asked odd questions about the sodas we drink and the things we can and can't do. I don't take offense to this, but rather I am flattered. People can tell we are different. People can tell that for the most part we are all happy. That is because we know of God's plan for us. The lives that we live are clean and we do the best we can to help others. That why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Mormon Helping Hands has always been one of my favorite things to participate in. Nowhere else are you going to find a bunch of 18-30 year old kids waking up at 8 a.m. on a Saturday morning to go clean a school or a park. It is always a lot of fun. I always try to go visit members at their homes, and though I don't always get to see everyone I would like to, I always try to see as many as possible. Acoustic Cafe is my "baby." it was started by a buddy of mine a few years ago, but it was just for our ward and very few people attended. I started organizing them and inviting more people and it is now one of the most popular event for Young Single Adults in the area. It is basically an open mic night, and there are a lot of talented people in the are. It is always a blast seeing all of the new performances.
