Hi I'm Jeffrey Lee

I am from Evanston Wyomin.. I am a missionary. I am an athlete. I knit sweaters. Im not an eagle scout. And im a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Wyoming and lived there my whole life until i went to college at Dixie State. I love to have fun and enjoy being around others. i like to play sports and played football, basketball, and ran track in high school. in the summer i had fun playing on a city softball team and would protect the world from mosquitos working for the county. i got the chance to play football in college for a season before i put all these things aside to serve the lord for two years in the Independence Missori.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I have a mother that is like the mothers of the Strippling Warriors and a father that is like the prophet Nephi. My mother taught me about the goodness of God. And would share what she knew to be true with me often. My father like Nephi would go and do anything that the Lord would ask him to do. He showed me how to follow in the Saviors footsteps. I was blessed with goodly parents to teach me about the love of God. In college I had a strong desire to return to the principles that my parents had taught me. And I had a desire to abtain the same conviction of the gospel that they had. To know for a surety I turned to the source. I opened the Book of Mormon and started to read from its pages. I began to feal the missing pieces in my life come back, I felt full. Like I have a purpose in this life and my goals extended beyond the day to day things. It gave me a greater hope for the future. After reading the Book of Mormon I pondered its message and asked God if it was true. And... IT IS!! I like Joseph Smith the Prophet wondered how there could be so many different churches and teachings in our day of what Christ taught. The Book of Mormon is an antient record that God has brought forth in our day to stand as a witness of Jesus Christ and the gospel he preached to the world. Through it i have gained a testimony of our savior Jesus Christ. This gospel makes me happy and that is why i am mormon.

How I live my faith

I will always try and grow nearer to the Lord by following the principles he taught. Everyday is game day and I get to wake up every morning and choose to play for Coach Christ. I listen to his counsel and will try my best to follow it. I want to be my best and become like him. To do so, I follow him. I try my best to live the commandments knowing that he has placed them there for us to prepare to return to live with god again. I live what I know to be true with a smile because it is this gospel that replaces fear with faith, despair with hope, sorrow for happiness, chaos for peace, and many other things. For that I live my faith in gratitude for all the blessings he has given me. I love my scriptures they are my rock. Through them I continue to grow and understand the way Christ would want me to live my faith. I share my faith with others.
