About Geoff B.

Geoff B has had three main careers. Some of them have overlapped. After attending Stanford University (class of 1985), he worked in journalism for several years until about 1992, when he took up his second career in telecommunications sales. In 1995, he took up his favorite and third career as father. Soon thereafter, Heavenly Father hit him over the head with a two-by-four (wielded by the Holy Ghost) and he woke up from a long sleep. Since then, he's been learning a lot about the Gospel. He still has a lot to learn. Geoff's held several Church callings: young men's president, high priest group leader, member of the bishopric, stake director of public affairs, media specialist for church public affairs, high councilman. He tries his best in his callings but usually falls short. Geoff has five children and lives in Colorado.

  1. It seems pretty clear that the theme of this conference, based on Elder Uchtdorf’s talk, is service. Especially appropriate now.

  2. I hope everybody heard Elder Burton’s talk. Self-reliance, voluntary action to help the poor. Not forced charity.

  3. Puts my little contributions to the Jordan River Temple as a youth in perspective. Sacrifice has always been associated with temples! Sacrifice: trading one thing of value for something of greater value!

  4. Well, think the youth of today who go to seminary at 6:30 am and church everyy Sunday and do temple baptisms are making some great and worthwhile sacrifices.

  5. Loved Elder Holland’s talk as well. It’s so true that every conference has messages for me and others and I’m always impressed at the next fast and testimony meeting to hear the messages that reached others that were not the same as the messages I was particulary touched by.
