Hi I'm Greg

I'm a Latter Day Saint

About Me

I am a retired US Air Force Officer and currently work as a civil engineer for a freight railroad. I enjoy spending time with my family, bicycling, reading, gardening, and genealogy. I currently serve in our local family history center and help others find their ancestors. My wife and I have five children.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in an LDS home. My parent’s teachings and example helped me gain a testimony of Jesus Christ and his gospel. As I grow up, my testimony grew as I studied the gospel, attended church, read scriptures (including the Book of Mormon), and prayed. I am grateful for the peace that comes into my life as I strive to live the gospel, teach my own family, and serve those around me. I am grateful for Christ’s atonement and the Plan of Salvation that make it possible for me to return to God’s presence and live with my family.

How I live my faith

I study the scriptures, pray, and write in my journal on a daily basis. As a family, we pray and read the scriptures together every day, have weekly family home evenings, eat meals together whenever we can, and support each other in our activities. We attend church together. The knowledge that we are all children of God helps me to see those around me as brothers and sisters. I look for opportunities to serve those around me. This knowledge has helped greatly in my perrsonal and professional life in difficult situations to treat others (even when they are angry or rude) with respect and love. While serving in the family history center, I have found the original records of many of my ancestors. Seeing records of their births, marriages, and deaths has strengthened my love for them and helped me to feel connected to them.
