Hi I'm Craig Lewis

I grew up in St. Louis, Missouri. I love my family, sports and the outdoors. I am serving a two-year mission. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the 4th child in a family of 6 kids. I have two wonderful parents, my mom and dad have helped teach me everything I know to this day. I love all sports, but definitely basketball. I love spending time with family, they mean everything to me. I have so many members of my family who have been examples to me. I like computers and watching movies. I went to a semester of college at BYU before I left for my mission. I graduated from high school early, and went to a community college to get my Associates Degree. I am majoring in Business Management at BYU. I love hanging out with friends. I like making homemade videos and listening to music. I also like card and board games.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because of the hope it gives me in my life. The blessings I receive from being a member of this church are numerous. The feelings of the Spirit that I feel when I live worthy of it, help testify to me that this is the true Church on the earth today, the church of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I am a Mormon because of the assurance it brings to me, that this is not the only thing in life. We have an afterlife. We are here to be trialed and tested so we can live with our Father in Heaven again. I am a member of this church because of the safety it brings that I have a Father in Heaven who cares about me individually and knows me personally. I am a Mormon, because I have received many witnesses, that this is the true Church!

How I live my faith

I live My Faith by applying the Atonement in my life. This is the only way to progress in this life. This life is a time to prepare to meet God. We endure trials and tribulations. We are tested. We need to come unto Christ and ask for a remission of our sins. I live my faith by serving others. When we are in the service of others, we are in the service of our God. Thats why I chose to serve a mission. I want to serve others, and bring the JOY I feel to others in this world, especially in California. I live my faith by reading the scriptures daily, and communicating with our Heavenly Father through prayer. I know we can receive answers to our prayers, and I know we can receive revelation and inspiration when we appy the scriptures to our life.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Craig Lewis
We can come to know of our Heavenly Father's love for us through prayer. If we go to him with a real desire and true intent, He will answer our prayers! We will be able to feel of his love for us! We can also come to know of Our Father in Heaven through diligent scripture study. We come to learn of the things that Heavenly Father wants us to do so we can have joy on this earth!

What is faith?

Craig Lewis
Faith is mental exertion. Faith is action which leads to power. To first have faith, we need to believe in God. Faith can be thought as also trust or confidence. Faith is required to enter the Celestial Kingdom. Faith is believing and doing things to a goal that is not seen. Faith can be grown through scripture study, prayer and living according to the commandments of God! Show more Show less

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Craig Lewis
I am a missionary serving in California. We proselyte because it was said by the Savior that we should go to all the world and preach my gospel! So thats what we do as missionaries. We walk the streets, knock door and share what our message has to offer! We share the things that we have tried out in our lives, and have come to know they are true. And for those reasons, we like to serve and share with others what we know!! Show more Show less
