Hi I'm Jefferson Schmeltzer

I grew up in Utah till I was of the age of 12. Where I moved to Chattanooga, TN. I previously live in Missouri.

About Me

I've always had the privilege to grow up in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Currently I'm preparing myself for my mission. I've always had an eye to the single glory of God. I am so happy and please I can partake of the sacrament each week, as well as, renewing my covenants and remember what Jesus Christ did for me. I have seen what Heavenly Father, and Jesus Christ as well as the Holy Ghost can do for me. I hope that someday everyone on this earth can acknowledge his love and is charity.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I love Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, through Jesus Christ and repenting each week I am able to repent of my sins. That alone will not put myself in Heavenly Fathers glory. Through the temple I am able to make covenants in the future to be sealed with my family, for time and all eternity. The temple is where I can feel closer to Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost. I have noticed so much wrong doing, and sin in this world where Satan has influenced many peoples lives. They seek temporary happiness instead of life long, eternity happiness. I have found shelter from that sin, and I have felt of the charity of Jesus Christ, and Heavenly Father. I wish to express and share that gratitude I have and have felt more relief in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I love our living prophets and I head their council because they are not men, they are men of God.

How I live my faith

I am currently a Ward Missionary. I currently go out with the elders that are assigned in my ward right now twice a week. I'm a teacher in the mostly young adults priesthood class. I as well am a peer and set myself as an example for the youth in my ward.
