Hi I'm Jeff

I grew up around the United States until I was twelve when my family settled in Salt Lake City. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like to golf. I am married and have two children- a boy and girl. Next month, I'll have been married for fifteen years. I recently completed my MBA degree after having been out of school for ten years. I am searching for a job.

Why I am a Mormon

Truth is truth. Even the best salesman can't argue effectively against it, though some might try. One truth I know is that Jesus and God love us. They are concerned about us, even if we aren't concerned about them. They want us to know them and for us to choose to follow their commands. As we seek them out and truly want to live a life guided by Jesus' principles, we will find the truth. We need to be open to go where we are being guided in order to find the truth. This is the path I followed. As I searched and pondered the truths found in the scriptures, I prayed about them. I receive confirmation from the Holy Ghost that what I was reading was true. I encourage all people to do the same thing. Living a life based on the Gospel of Jesus Christ brings peace and comfort to you. Even an inner peace that can't be bought or found anywhere else on this earth.

How I live my faith

I try living my faith everyday through my actions. I oversee many congregations youth programs, specifically the boys. I try everyday to think of ways we can build the boys testimonies and have fun doing it. I also bring a message to families in my area about Jesus Christ. In the years I've been doing this, I have forged lasting relationships with those around me. When I moved into this neighborhood eight years ago, I didn't know anyone. Now, because of my responsibilities in our congregation, I've developed relationships that will last. Because of my involvement in our church, I've had opportunities to organize sports events like kickball that our youth loved participating in every year. It's been a fun activity that continues after I left that calling. I know as we live our faith and apply the principles Jesus taught, we develop concern for our neighbors and ultimately relationships that deepen past just saying hi to our neighbors.

What is the role of the husband and the wife in the family?

The parent's role in the home is to be the guide for their children in their upbringing. They are to teach their children truths about the Gospel of Jesus Christ that will teach them what they need to do, in order to live with God and Jesus Christ after this life is done. Show more Show less
