Hi I'm Grant

I have five beautiful children. I train hospitals and doctors how to use robots for surgery. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was raised in Arizona as the son of a cotton farmer, but now live in the Bluegrass state of Kentucky. I'm the oldest of five awesome brothers who are my closest friends. I love riding my motorcycle through the rolling green hills on a sunny day, and spending time wrestling my five beautiful children. My wonderful wife has been at my side for a number of years as we've moved to several states throughout our marriage. I graduated from Arizona State University and now work with hospitals that utilize robotics for minimally invasive surgery.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born of parents who possessed incredible faith and who raised my four brothers and I with love, patience, and righteousness. They were excellent examples...even if I wasn't always perfect in following that example. As I got older, I made the choice to go along with my mom and dad's example and actually "live" the teachings that were being taught to me. I was amazed with what I found as I adhered to what I had been taught all those years! My vision of my future became so bright. I found true happiness, peace, and direction for my life. Most of all...I became aware of what my Savior Jesus Christ had done for me. I found that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was the catalyst for change in my life because, as a member, I was able to learn what the Atonement of Jesus Christ meant for me. I remain a Mormon today, because I know that in this church I gain knowledge and experience that a loving Father in Heaven wants me to learn. This in turn helps me to be a better father, husband, and brother. It keeps my perspective pointed in the right direction. I know what is most important in my life...and that is my family. I am grateful that I have the same tools and teachings at my disposal that my parents had when I was being raised, because now I can use them in raising my children!

How I live my faith

I live my faith through the privilege of serving others. I have the blessing of being a father and husband. I also have the opportunity to serve in my church. I've worked with the youth for some time now. My faith affects everything that I do, every decision that I make, and every priority that I set for myself. Faith makes me a happier and more confident person. There are many great examples in my life that I have the blessing of interacting with each day...this inspires me to continually try to better myself and to strengthen my faith.
