Hi I'm Craig

I am a lawyer, professor, husband, and father. I live in Nebraska--an awesome place to live. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband and father. My children are in high school and college. I love watching my children grow up and being friends with them. We all like music in our family, and my children have performed in various high school and college groups. My sons and I like to follow politics. We have plenty of opinions--some good, some probably not so good. We are just trying to figure out which are which. We love our country. I love the legal profession. Lawyers are problem solvers. They help people. I enjoy teaching. As a teacher I get to learn from my students, and I get to help them. I like the outdoors, good music, genealogy, and learning about other cultures.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of The Church of Jesus Christ all my life. Some of my ancestors were Mormon pioneers. Although my family background explains how I was exposed to the Church, that is not why I am a Mormon. I am a Mormon because I believe the church's doctrines and teachings to be true and correct. I am convinced that true happiness comes by living according to the principles of the Church. I have seen the Church bless my life and the lives of others who have embraced it. The gospel of Jesus Christ calls me to be a better person and encourages me always to try to be my best. The gospel blesses families and has helped me raise my children.

How I live my faith

I try to live my life in harmony with the teachings of the Church. This means I am a dedicated family man. The Gospel teaches me to put my family's needs first, before my own wishes. This is how we pass on to the next generation the strong values that will make them better people and give them a firm foundation to build upon. I live my faith by attempting to have integrity in my work and by dealing fairly with others. I live my faith by respecting the beliefs and perspectives of others.
