Hi I'm Jeff

I'm an illustrator, designer and animator. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a husband and father, but still just a big kid at heart. As a graphic artist, I get to tap into my creative inner child daily. I enjoy playing basketball, writing music once in a while, and some might consider me a computer geek.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to loving parents active in the church, and was brought up learning about the gospel of Jesus Christ. I've always felt that what they taught me was true, and I was baptized when I was 8 years old. As I approached my teenage years, I felt a desire to further know for myself if this was in fact the true church of Jesus Christ. As I continued reading the scriptures, including the Bible and the Book of Mormon, and prayed to my Father in Heaven, I received an answer for myself, through the Spirit, that what I was taught as a child was true. I have since gone on a mission for my church to share my testimony to others, and to teach the gospel of Jesus Christ. I have, on so many other occasions, received further spiritual confirmation that Christ lives, and that he has called men today to be his prophets and apostles.

How I live my faith

I participate in the LDS church in many different ways. I attending my Sunday church services each week, assisting in the leadership of young fathers and men. I visit multiple LDS families each month with my son, and help them if they are so in need. When the season is right, I assist our local church owned orchard by thinning or picking fruit for welfare needs.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

Jeff
We believe that the purpose of life is to come to Earth, receive a physical body, and to be tested. We have all been given the right to freely choose good or evil, right or wrong. Our Father has made a way possible to return and live with him again, if we make righteous choices. Show more Show less

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Jeff
We do not. We recognize him as a prophet of God, and an important man in the church. But we do not worship him. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about the Bible? Do they regard it as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Jeff
Yes. The Bible is an inspired compilation of scripture with many wonderful and beautiful gospel truths. Show more Show less
