Hi I'm Craig

I like to read, draw, watch movies and hang out with friends. I like quotes, solving things and working hard. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 21 and grew up in Columbus, Georgia. I like to draw, read, laugh, learn, and be with friends. I went on a 2 year mission teaching the gospel of Jesus Christ in Spanish. I went to school for welding and am now studying engineering and Spanish at CSU. I enjoy challenges, music, art, opportunities, helping others and being active in my church.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church and have always liked how it helped my family to make it together even with all the difficulties we had. I have a great love of Jesus Christ and all that he did for me. To me He not only suffered for our sins and died for us, but He understands each heartbreak and struggle that everyone has ever had. He loves us for who we are, and knows how to help us with whatever we face. To me the teachings of the church make sense. They all fit together and explain life and the Bible better than I've found anywhere else. The church also helps individuals and families grow and develop faith in the Lord. But that isn't why I'm a member. When I was 17 I started wondering what else was out there, and questioned if what I'd believed my whole life was true. I decided I needed to ask God. While I was praying a great feeling of peace came over me and I knew that what I was asking was true- and I knew that God not only sees me as a person but cares for me as a son. I know that's true for everyone and they can come to feel that for themselves.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be a good person. I'm honest and try to help others to have an easier time, when I see chances to help I lend a hand. I always try to learn more and enjoy helping someone understand something they didn't get before. I enjoy beauty and nature and thank God for them. There's so much that He wants to bless us with, if we let Him access our hearts. If we choose to live the way He wants us to, then we are happier and can help others. I want everyone to be happy and know how to receive answers to their prayers and the questions they struggle with.
