Hi I'm Jeff

I'm a husband, father, and software manager. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to vacation with my family, swim, read, sing, and hike. I love history, football, and music.

Why I am a Mormon

Because it's true. I've asked God and he answered me. I didn't always know this. It was only after I read the Book of Mormon with an open mind and asked God with great effort and with a full expectation that he would answer me that I felt the subtle, yet heavenly, assurance that it was true. What I felt then and continue to feel whenever I'm close to the Lord is difficult to describe, but is unmistakably from God and not just personal emotion. It is most similar to peace, joy, goodness, love, faith, purity, and inspiration. Once you reach out to the Lord to honestly know if he's there and if the Book of Mormon is true, you'll feel his influence and you'll understand for yourself that God is listening and that the words in the Book of Mormon are from him.

How I live my faith

I think we all live what we truly believe or know, whether we realize it or not. As for myself, I know the following: - My Father in Heaven and Jesus Christ are real - The Book of Mormon is true - Joseph Smith was a prophet - The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the Lord's true church and he communicates truth and his will through modern-day prophets and apostles. I try to live my life according to these truths by doing my best to obey the Lord's counsel and teachings as given to me through scripture, prophets, and revelation.
