Hi I'm Greg

About Me

I am a father of four kids ages 19 to 12 and my wife and I will soon celebrate our 22nd wedding anniversary. Our oldest son will soon be serving a full-time mission for the church in the Riverside, California mission.

Why I am a Mormon

My dad converted to the church when he was an early teen and my mom's family had not attended church regularly until she was about eight years old. While I was born a member of the Church, I have had to gain a testimony for myself. I had a good foundation of faith by the time I was a teenager but attending university gave me that opportunity to see if I had my own testimony or if I was just blindly following my parents. As I came to stand on my own, I found that knowing who God and Jesus Christ are and what their plan is for me, gave me an eternal perspective and happiness that continues to guide my life today.

How I live my faith

When we aren't busy with work, school, and church responsibilities, our family loves baseball and softball. I have coached and umpired and even taught my wife how to keep the scorebook! Whether it is playing, watching, or volunteering, I think why we have been drawn to the sport is because it allows us to do things as a family. What has been very gratifying is to see our older sons return the service they received by umpiring and coaching the in league they played in growing up.

Mormons believe Jesus Christ is their Savior. Why do we need a Savior?

Christ commanded us to be perfect, even as our Father in Heaven is perfect see Matt 5:48. Death and sin are the two obstacles that prevent us from being perfect. Without a Savior, we can not overcome these obstacles because we all sin and we will all die. Through the resurrection of Christ, however, we can all over come death and live again. Christ paid for our sins to meet the demands of justice but He blesses us with His mercy as we become His disciples, keep the commandments, and continually repent. Show more Show less
