Hi I'm Craig

I love and enjoy my family, I love learning, I think work can be fun and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love being my wife’s husband, being a father, the joy of being a grandfather, and making people smile. Among the things I value most are integrity, friendship, wisdom, generosity, kindness, courage and determination in a godly cause. I have been a long time member of Rotary International and have a firm belief that we can lift others best by giving them the tools to lift themselves to self sufficiency and further education. When I get a chance I enjoy climbing mountains, conversations around a camp fire, intellectually stimulating conversations anywhere as well as bicycling, snow and water skiing and golf. I find fulfillment in learning, pursuing the understanding of eternal truths, traveling with my wife and family and making a positive impact in the lives of others. I am a business owner and I find that work and fun can often be synonymous. At the end of each day, I kneel in prayer with my wife and recommend that practice to any married couple as a counter balance to the uncertainty and rapid spin of modern life.

Why I am a Mormon

Like millions of others, I have knelt in sincere prayer to my Father in Heaven and asked him to reveal to me through the Holy Spirit the truthfulness of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Bible and the Book of Mormon. He has done so in an unmistakable way and I have experienced the revelatory gift and comfort of the Holy Spirit on many, many occasions. I have come to know that God has once again established the ancient Church of Jesus Christ upon the earth through the instrumentality of Joseph Smith with Apostles and the Prophets and that there are Apostles and Prophets today as there were in Christ's ancient church. Anyone who does what I have done, will experience that same outcome and they will come to know that a loving Father in Heaven is willing to answer their prayers.

How I live my faith

I attempt to do what the Savior expects me. to do what He would want me to do. I attempt to be a husband my wife can love and respect, a father that lifts and loves his children and a grandfather who will be remembered with a smile by my grandchildren. I attempt to be a good neighbor and a participating member of the democracy in which I live. I eneavor to comfort those who stand in need of comfort and raise my voice in support of those things that will help others receive the restored gospel of Jesus Christ through faith in Him, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost and enduring to the end as disciples of Jesus Christ. I try to follow Jesus Christ at all times by being honest with others and with God and by trying to serving Him. I have enjoyed serving others in many ways, in the LDS church and in my community. I have attempted to assist others to make wise choices and to establish their own relationship with Christ. I try to always look to heaven for answers and find the strength to be unified with all those who endeavor to follow Christ. I make a lot of mistakes as I go along and I am grateful for the patience and goodness of so many people; human beings possess so much capacity to love and I have received more than my share of that incredible godly gift from those around me.
