Hi I'm Craig

I'm an engineer and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love summertime and everything that comes with it - golf, barbeques, boating, camping next to a lake, etc, etc. I studied engineering in college, earned a degree in civil engineering, and still work in that industry. I'm still amazed with how much can be solved by math in the universe. It's unbelievable! This world, and everything about it, could not have come about by chance. Things fit together too perfectly. Such a precise and exact force or reaction that must have been required to start this world, or however one believes it came to pass, could only have come about by purpose. God does exist!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon for many reasons. Living my life according to Mormon standards has helped me attain success and happiness in a tough world. I've been touched many times by the spirit of God confirming the truthfulness of the Savior's mission, the Church, The Book of Mormon, and modern day prophets. I must live the LDS Church because I know it's true!

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith everyday by how I treat others, do business, and live my life. I do teach sunday school in my local congregation. Each lesson I prepare and teach I learn so much in the process. It takes a little time but it's well worth the rewards.

Who founded Mormonism and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

Craig
 Jesus Christ started/founded The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, aka the Mormon Church. You may have been expecting a different answer, such as Joseph Smith. Joseph Smith played a key role in the beginnings of the Church. I firmly believe that the Lord called Joseph Smith to be a modern prophet, just like Moses of old, and instructed him to restore, or re-start, the same Church He formed during his ministry 2,000 years ago. His ancient Church dwindled from unbelief and the world was without The Church of Jesus Christ for many centuries. The term "Latter Day Saints" is to differentiate the Church today with the ancient Church that Christ established. In essence, it is the same Church but at different times on the earth.
