Hi I'm Craig

I grew up on Long Island, New York. I love being a Mormon!

About Me

I am going to graduate school to become a Physical Education teacher for Middle Schoolers. I am interested in all forms of art. 

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I want to make my heavenly father proud of me. While I was unsure about the Mormon faith, I prayed about the Book of Mormon and I recieved a confirmation from the power of the Holy Ghost that the book was of God. When I decided to be baptised into the Mormon church, my family strongly opposed my decision. However, the love that the Mormon church members showed toward me overpowered all the dissapointment of my family. I love my Savior Jesus Christ and my loyalty is first to my Heavenly Father. I know that Joseph Smith saw God the Father and Jesus Christ in the sacred grove.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by keeping my eyes open to opportunities to serve others daily. I call up members of my church daily to see how they are doing because I care about them. My life has been greatly blessed as I forget myself and serve others. 

How can I know Mormonism is true?

We invite all men everywhere to read the Book of Mormon, to ponder in their hearts the message it contains, and then to ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ if the book is true. Those who pursue this course and ask in faith will gain a testimony of its truth and divinity by the power of the Holy Ghost. Those who gain this divine witness from the Holy Spirit will also come to know by the same power that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world, that Joseph Smith is his revelator and prophet in these last days, and that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the Lord’s kingdom once again established on the earth, preparatory to the second coming of the Messiah.  Show more Show less
