Hi I'm Craig Prince

I own my own business that I have run for 36 years. I've been married 35 years. I'm a Mormon

About Me

Being married for over 33 years and having 6 children, I love being with my family. When they were younger, we traveled across the United States in our van. I think the greatest times we've had together is when we have just sat around laughing and talking. Even though all of our children are now out of the house, we still love getting together and play board games or video games. We have fun traditions at Christmas and on birthdays where we always have a breakfast of creamed eggs and toast. I really love being around my family!

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? Because like so many people, I've read the scriptures including the Book of Mormon and then I prayed to know of the truthfulness of that which I read. Like those who walked with with the Savior following His resurrection, I felt the burning in my bosom as a testament that it is true. Being a Mormon has provided a standard by which I strive to live. Like everyone else, I know I sin. I also know that if I repent, the atonement of Jesus Christ can remove those sins from my life. I am grateful for what the Lord does for me. I'm grateful that he speaks to prophets today who can teach me today the way to go. That feeling of assurance helps me in a day when there is so much confusion!

How I live my faith

I'm glad for the opportunity to serve others. I've had the opportunity to work with the youth through the Boy Scouts program. I've had the opportunity to work with Seniors who have limitations and be of assistance with yard work and other types of service. I was once asked to sit with a dear lady who was ill in a convalescent center while her daughter was taking this lady's granddaughter to dinner for her birthday. This dear lady was at the end of her life. I watched as her breaths got more and more shallow. It was only a few minutes before her passing that her daughter came back so I had the opportunity to be of consolation to her daughter as she watched her dear mother pass. As the Savior truly taught, we can only really find ourselves if we are willing to be of service to our fellow man! I have found that to be true in my life.

Why do some call Mormonism a cult?

Craig Prince
I feel that most Christian religions have a commonality of their love for the Lord Jesus Christ. I think that we call recognize our dependency on him for our salvation. I think that we all desire to keep the Lord's commandments because of our love for Him and His love for us. The more my friends who are not of my religion get to know me the more that they realize that we are not a cult but a religious organization that love the Lord and have great desires to serve him as we serve our fellow beings!

What is the Relief Society?

Craig Prince
I have noticed as my wife and daughters have participated in Relief Society, their talents have been enlarged through participation in activities and I've also seen their love for community and the world at large as they have participated in humanitarian projects sponsored by the Relief Society.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Craig Prince
I think that we can best know who our Father in Heaven is by getting to know His only begotten son, Jesus Christ. The Savior said many times that if we have seen him, we've seen the Father because the Savior only does what he's seen the Father do. Just like getting to know another human being, we need to be willing to invest our time, our heart and our love to get to know who the Savior is. I think reading the scriptures, which testify of Jesus Christ, and then following the commandments contained in the scriptures, we will be living the way that our Savior lived and by doing living like that, we'll know the Savior and His Father better!
