Hi I'm Greg Joyner

I'm a Mormon. I was born and raised in the Southern United States.

About Me

! was born and raised for my first 15 years in South Carolina. My parents were members of the church and I am 4th generation member. Have lived the rest of my life in Georgia, except for 2 years as a missionary in the Philippines and several months at BYU. I have been married for 34 years and am the proud parent of 4 children and 2 grandchildren. Have had several jobs and now working as a Technician for a major food company. I love sports College, music, and reading a good book, but my real enjoyment, beside my family, is Family History.   

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to parents that were members and they taught me a lot about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. When I was about 14 years old, I was home from school sick, I was challenged to read the Book of Mormon in early morning Seminary. Since I was home, I picked up the Book and read it in two days. I could not put it down. I prayed about the truthfulness of the Book and received an answer that it was true. There have been so many spiritual experiences since that time. When I see my coworkers and everything that they talk about and go through, I am very happy that I have the Gospel to help keep on the path back to our Heavenly Father. 

How I live my faith

I have a couple of responsibilities at Church. I am the Family History Director for our Family History Library in our ward building. I also have another calling as Public Affairs Specialists for my Ward. Besides working a crazy schedule at work, I also serve on the local School Council for an Elementary School here in the county. I am a Biz Pal Partner through my work. At General Mills, we are partners with an Elemetary School. We have a little bit of distance between work and the school. We have established an E-mail mentoring program, where we E-mail each other back and forth. At work, I serve on a committee where we allocate funds to the community. I get to interact with non profit organizations in the community.
