Hi I'm Jill Christoffersen

I claim Brigham City, Utah as my birthplace but Dad was in the Army so we moved around a bunch. I live in Ogden now.

About Me

I taught mostly junior high students English and Spanish for 34 years. I love to read, hike, crochet, scrapbook, and travel.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up with stories about my faithful pioneer ancestors and their sacrifices crossing the plains to unite with Latter-day Saints in Utah. As I read and ponder the scriptures, my own witness that Heavenly Father is real and loves us continues to grow. I am so grateful that our Savior set the example of how to live and was willing to atone for our sins allowing us to repent and return to our Heavenly Father. He also made it possible for us to be resurrected.

How I live my faith

I have volunteered to help an immigrant family from the Congo settle in our community as well as tutor elementary students with their reading skills. I love to read and study the teachings of Jesus Christ and share what I have learned with my neighbors in Sunday School.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Jill Christoffersen
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints helps me understand why I am here on earth, where I will go when I die, and how to avoid many dangers and temptations. Since this comfort brings me joy and peace, I want to share the gospel with others so they can also have the same joy and peace and comfort. Show more Show less
