Hi I'm Ireland Jeffords

I grew all over California. I am a Music Major. I am a Convert, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student in California. A Voice Performance Major. I love singing, long boarding, lacrosse, and hiking. I am a total music and movie fanatic, and love going to concerts and movies. I was on a lacrosse team in high school that I loved, and wish I could still play.

Why I am a Mormon

I decided to convert when I was 16 and had to wait until I was 18 to actually get baptized; both of your parents have to agree if you are under the age of 18, so that there is no family strife. The church is very protective and supportive of the family. I am so grateful for the two years that I had to wait, my life was blessed in so many ways as I was trying to prepare to be a member and be baptized. Before I let the gospel of Jesus Christ in my life I could never see a real future for myself and didn't have any hope of being happy or having a family. Now that I have let my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ in my life I have hope for my future and I know it is bright, because I know my Father in Heaven loves me and he wants me to be happy. This church the true church of Jesus Christ has given me such a big family from all the other members that have been there and helped me throughout the years, to my father and stepmother who took me in at 15 when I was kicked out of my home. I finally know my purpose and who I am, and I would never have found that out without this gospel the True Gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going out to serve with the missionaries whenever I get the chance. I am a part of the YSA wards(this is a ward for young single adults ages 18-30) activities committee. We figure out what fun and spiritual activities we can do to build relationships with others in the area.

What do Mormons believe about the nature of God?

Ireland Jeffords
We believe that God is a real loving Father with a body, who wants us to return to him. He loves us no matter what we do and/or who we are and He loves us more than any person on earth ever will. He cared and loves us each individually as a person and as a son or daughter of his. Show more Show less
