Hi I'm Craig

I grew up in the United States of America. I am trying to live as Christ-like a life as I can. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Well, I did a four year tour in the United States Marine Corps, then went to school and earned a Bachelors Degree in Management, then went straight into grad school and earned a MBA. I am currently single and in career transition.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up around a Mormon family -- so the influence of the church was always there. However, it wasn't until a period of trial and adversity that I really needed some guidance and direction; which led me to start praying about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. As I started to research and pray more about this faith -- I realized more and more that this was indeed the Lord's true church -- with the full gospel. With that realization I got baptized soon thereafter. Knowing what I know now, I feel an obligation to share this information with everyone.

How I live my faith

As members of this church we are all encouraged to live as Christ-like a life as we can. Granted, we all fall short -- but none-the-less we still try. This faith has given me many opportunities to serve and grow both spiritually and temporally. I have had assignments (callings) from sacrament coordinator to building manager; callings that have me watch over the needs of a group of church members and help them in any way I can to clerical positions in the church.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Like anything in life -- if you want to be good at something you have to put the time and energy into it. Increasing one's faith in Jesus Christ is no different. In our church, members are encouraged to read their scriptures, serve others, live honest/wholesome lives, pray etc. As we do these things we become more like our Savior and draw nearer unto Him. This not only increases our faith, but makes us better instruments in His hands to serve our fellow brothers and sisters and help increase their faith as well. Show more Show less

What are some of the ways that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints helps those around the world?

The Mormon Church (or The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) has a lot of out-reach programs that help members and non-members alike by reaching out to those victimized by natural disaster(s), war(s), or any other circumstance where an individual or family cannot cover the basic necessities of life such as food, clothing, and/or shelter. As members of this church we are all encouraged to be self-reliant, however, hardships do occur and in those instances a church leader usually steps in to offer aid and support. Show more Show less
