Hi I'm Craig

I am a husband, father, friend, and neighbor. I love my family, I work hard, I like to have fun, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband to a beautiful wife, and a father to two wonderful boys. I graduated from college almost two years ago and am now working hard to sustain my family. I enjoy spending time with my family, playing games and sports, and just having fun.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to an active Mormon family, and I am very grateful I was. My parents taught me about Jesus Christ, and showed me how to learn to love Him. As a family we studied the scriptures, including the Book of Mormon and the Bible, and learned of God's plan for us here on earth. We learned the importance of regular pray, scripture study, church attendance, and obedience. As I grew I had to learn truth for myself, and so I did as the scriptures suggest, and I sought answers in the scriptures and through pray. I recieved answers to my prays, little bits at a time, until I had a surity of the truth. I know that Jesus is the Christ and is my Savior, I know that the Book of Mormon is scripture, I know that Joseph Smith was called of God to be a prophet, I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the Lord's Church on the earth today. I know these things for myself, and I continue to seek truth and knowlege.

How I live my faith

I currently work directly with the missionaries and help them work with the members of the Church in the area I work in. Because we believe we have the truth, and know that it blesses lives, we want to share that with as many people as we can. I find joy in helping other come the the sweet knowelge of the gospel. I also serve by visiting two families from the Church each month to share a message of the Gospel with them and to help them with any other needs they may have.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

We believe in and love Jesus Christ. We want other to learn of Him so they too can share in His love and be redeemed from sin. We also believe that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ have organized a church here on earth, and that that church is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and that the authority to perform saving ordenances, such as baptism, is only in the LDS church. We want all to be able to recieve the blessings of the gospel, and so we send missionaries out to proselyte and teach others. We also encourage members of the church to share their beliefs with friends and family. Show more Show less
