Hi I'm Jeff

I grew up on a farm, Fell away from the Church and came back into it, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am 20 years old. I have been working on a ranch for the last year and a half. I enjoy working with horses, cattle and some welding here and there. I am currently serving a mission in the Illinois Chicago West Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

My Parents devorced when I was at the age of 13 I fell into a unhealthy state of blaming everything on myself and went in to a place of where I needed attention then when I would get too much attention I would fade away into the crowd and go away for a time. I was drinking and smoking here and there thinking nothing of it then when I graduated high school and fell away during the 9 months I was out. I was on the verge of getting into trouble with the law and I was ducking and hiding running from the cops. But one day the night before I left everything behind, I got into a fight with my mom on the phone saying some stuff I shouldnt have said and the next day I had a feeling that somone smacked me with a 2x4 and said to me clear as day '' you need to get out, somthing bad is going down''. So as soon as I got the chance I told the person I was living with that I was leaving that minute and he said I will help you pack I have the same feeling. Ever since then I never looked back on that life, but just the memories I have had and experiences that help me every day remind me that I am stronger today than when I was then.

How I live my faith

I use to go to young single adults branch where I work at but now I am serving a mission. It helps me come closer to the words of Christ and his teachings it helps me read and study the scriptures and its just really fun. I feel like I have come closer to Christ and his atonment when I was alone and Got back into it I felt what I call the spiritual electric blanket. Every time I feel that it seems to me that I am doing somthing right andI am always accompanied by the Holy Ghost.
