Hi I'm Greg
I love life!
I am currently a student at university. I am studying Chinese. What am I planning to do with that you ask? Why go to medical school of course! I have the best job in the world as a teacher. I have recently developed a huge interest in soccer, but I have always been a huge fan of American football. I also love to read. I have been home from a mission for my church for about two years now. That was an awesome experience!
Why I am a Mormon
My parents are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In other words, I grew up as a Mormon. When I was in my mid teens I went to church, but I did not adhere to all of the "rules." For one reason or another I decided that I may as well find out if the church I had been going to my whole life was actually true. I remember the summer before I went into high school one of my teachers at church challenged all of the boys my age to read the Book of Mormon. I guess there was the added incentive that if we all did so we could shave his head important to a teenage boy I suppose. I remember reading the Book of Mormon that summer. There was something different about that book. There is a special feeling about it even when I read it today. After reading the book I remember praying and asking God if the book was true. I did not have a some immediate miraculous experience. In fact, I took a while to recognize my answer I should have recognized that it was true just by the way I had been feeling as I read it that summer. That fall my local church organization put on a musical production. The musical was about the Book of Mormon. Now I had sung in church plenty of times before that, but this time, these songs, it was different. The feelings I had while singing about the Book of Mormon had a great impact upon me. I knew that I had received my answer. This book was true! Once I knew the Book of Mormon was true everything else fell into place. I knew Joseph Smith was a prophet, and that the church he restored was true. Most importantly, I learned that God existed, and that He loves me and answers my prayers.
How I live my faith
I try to be an example of Christ in everything I do. As far as church service goes... As a college student the congregations I attend switch every year when I switch apartments. In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints everybody has an opportunity to serve in some way. I have taught lessons in church before, addressed the congregation, and organized family history records.
