Hi I'm Jeff Hansen

I love music, people, food, and I love the piano. Jesus Christ is a central part of my life, because I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I play the piano. I love shooting, and before my mission it was my life, but I'm giving it up for two years, because I know this is Jesus Christ's church, and it is a privilege to be able to serve Him. I love spending time with my friends and family. My mom is my role model, and the best example a person could ask for. My dad has taught me to work hard, and "come what may, and love it". My best friend Ethan Devey is an inspiration to me, and has helped me become who I am and get out of some rough spots through my teenage years by his example and friendship. I absolutely love learning about the gospel. I love studying the scriptures, and listening to words of modern prophets, to gain a better knowledge of our Father's plan for us, and of His love. I know, without a doubt, that the temples we have are the House of our Lord, and of our Father in Heaven. I know that they are sacred, and they teach us and help us to understand partially what eternal life with God will be like. Because of these things, I am currently serving in the Missouri Independence Mission, and will be until August 2016. I am serving because I know, without a doubt, that our Lord and Redeemer, our closest friend, Jesus Christ, lives. I know that He is here for us, and that He loves us, unconditionally, and more than we could comprehend. He is our Savior, and I promise that. I have become the person I am through Him, and through His ability to love. https://www.lds.org/youth/video/because-of-him?lang=eng#d

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know this church is true. I know that this is God's church, and that keeping His commandments keeps me free. I know that Joseph Smith was, and truly is a prophet of a living God. The Spirit has testified to me that the Book of Mormon is true. I know our Savior lives, and loves us. I know he died for us, and that he wants us to be happy. I know that Thomas S. Monson is God's prophet on the earth. I know the Atonement, the Priesthood, and the powers therewith are real. I love the church, and am proud to be a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be a better person everyday, through the gospel. I try to be a light to people, and an example for good. I live my faith by dedicating two years of my life to serve in the Missouri Independence Mission, so that I can help others gain a knowledge and testimony of our loving Savior, and His church.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Jeff Hansen
The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. It tells of His ministry to the ancient inhabitants of the American Continent, and of His truth and divinity. The Book of Mormon is sacred scripture, that adds to the Holy Bible, and gives us the fullness of Christ's church, once again restored on the Earth forever. It teaches us more about God's covenants with this branch of the House of Israel. It's the most correct book on Earth, and will change your live more than anything you've read before. I know it's true, I want the world to know that I confess it's truth, and I love it. Show more Show less
