Hi I'm Greg

I am a convert of about 32 years. I am a triathlete. I run a joint venture company. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father of four wonderful children, two who are married, so I have gained two additinal daughters, what a joy they are! I run a joint venture company that provide air pollution control equipment. In addition to being a mom and dad, my wife and I regularly train for trial on events. Because these are most often held on Sundays and since we have made covenants to keep the Sabbath day holy we end up doing most of these events on our own, with our family. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ, I love my family and look forward to being a family unit throughout eternity.

Why I am a Mormon

I joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints late in my high school years. Coming from a home of alcoholic parents I had very little formal exposure to religion. My best friend introduced me to the Church and I found a deep and rewarding conversion to the principles of the gospel. My only previous exposure to formal religion was not positive so I had very strong negative views on organized religion. When I was given a Book of Mormon I read the open pages which describe the experience of a 14 year old boy who wanted to know which church to join, so he retired to a grove of trees to ask God. His answer changed the world and most especially my life. I know for many this singular event is hard to accept but the Holy Ghost has revealed to me that it did indeed happen. I know it. I testify that it did, and as such the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ is once again on the earth in it's fullness.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith in every aspect of my life. At work, at home and at church as a leader. I live my faith by striving to live the commandments at all times and in all places. I also serve as a leader of a Stake, which is a collection of congregations we call wards. As an unpaid lay minister I have the unique honor to serve nearly 5500 members of our church in the area I live. I spend nominally 12-18 hours a week in this service and it has been a wonderful opportunity to teach the principles of the Gospel to adults and youth and to bear testimony of the Gospel and the restoration. I love the people and sometimes can see their potential as I imagine that our Father in Heaven and our Savior Jesus Christ see ours. Most of all I get the unique opportunity to see the power of the priesthood, and loving atonement of Jesus Christ make meaningful changes in the lives of people. Given all of the influences of this generation we live in, I see these life changing examples as modern day miracles.
