Hi I'm Paovale Jeff

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband and father of three beautiful little girls. I work in organizational development and leadership improvement. I have a Master in Public Administration and my mind flirts with returning for a PhD in organizational behavior. I play basketball three times a week in the early morning hours. I have an affection for devices and Disneyworld.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised by two wonderful parents who loved me enough to teach me. In my late teen years, I had some important experiences where the Holy Ghost confirmed to me the existence of God, me relationship to Him, and therefore the purpose of my life. Since that time, I have grown in my understanding and appreciation of Jesus Christ. He lives and continues His ancient pattern of leading us through living prophets. This knowledge brings a sense of belonging, purpose, and peace to my heart.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a bishop of a beautiful ward. The bishop is responsible for all ward activities, so I am involved with all of our meetings, services, and activities. I love our youth and desire for their happiness and strength. I meet with people and counsel with them about events in their lives, how to keep the commandments, and how to keep a close relationship with the Lord. I strive to find people with need for food and shelter so we can help them find ways to take care of themselves and serve others. The greatest desire of my heart is that the whole human family can experience the joy that comes from receiving the full love of Jesus Christ. I am grateful to have opportunity to do something to help others.
