Hi I'm Craig

I'm a young husband and father, raising our children thousands of miles from the nearest grandparent. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

A few years ago my wife and I packed our things and traveled over two thousand miles away from home to start a small business. With three very busy little boys, life is crazy to say the least. I enjoy playing sports and strategic games. Back in the day wakeboarding was my passion, but all my injuries have "wisened" me up a bit. Now I'm content spending time with my family and friends. I have recently started blogging about our Sunday meetings and I love helping people understand more about our faith.

Why I am a Mormon

I am convinced that there's simply no better way to live. Though I grew up in a Latter-day Saint home, it wasn't until my teen years that I decided I needed to figure out what I really believed. When I was almost 17 years old, I read the Book of Mormon for the first time. I knew it was true. A light within seemed to turn on for the first time in my life. Since then, I've tried to never look back and that light has only grown brighter and brighter. It has become a part of who I am. I know that Christ and His gospel can make far more of my life than I ever could. And I am learning to trust Him completely to take the reins.

How I live my faith

I don't have the luxury or desire of being just a Sunday Mormon. Every day I try to live according to the things I know to be true. I know the Bible and Book of Mormon are the Word of God, so I try to read them daily. I know God truly loves me so I try to speak with Him in prayer to see what He would have me do. I try to serve those around me, because I know that's exactly what Christ would do and I'm to the point that I really enjoy it too. I know this is Christ's church and I see His hand every Sunday in our meetings, so I try to capture what I see in words and blog about it each week.
