Hi I'm Greg

I love the outdoors. I'm a teacher. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to spend time with my family, especially doing outdoor activities. We love to spend time in the mtns or on the lake. I enjoy playing sports and staying active. I have degrees in mathematics and education but love to learn new things in many subjects.

Why I am a Mormon

I think the thing I love the most about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the emphasis on the atonement of Christ. I am continually reminded of what He has done for me and I have developed a great love for the Lord Jesus Christ. I am greatful for the knowledge that because of what He did for me I can be with my family forever with my Heavenly Father. I am grateful that we are led by a prophet of God to help me know the things that I can do to come closer to the Lord. I have found that as I listen to the words of the prophet and go to the Lord in prayer, I am able to work through and find solutions to the struggles that come with life.

How I live my faith

My main assignment in the church right now is with the young people. I help keep the primary (ages 3-11) running smoothly, but mainly work with the young men (ages 12-18). I work mainly behind the scenes, but I get to attend campouts and activities as often as I can. My own kids are in their teenage years, so it has been fun working with them and their friends. Personally, I live my faith by trying to do the little things. Things like studying the scriptures and making sure that I pray often. I have found that when I am trying to do the small simple things, the bigger things that seem harder just sort of take care of themselves. As I work on keeping my relationship with the Lord strong, my ability to be happy and stay strong increase.

What do Mormons believe about Jesus Christ? Do Mormons believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God?

I know that Jesus Christ is my savior and redeemer. Because of His sacrifice for me, I can overcome any obstacle that is placed in front of me. The more I study from the Bible and the Book of Mormon, the greater love I develop for Him. The more love I feel for him, the more confidence I feel in myself because I know that through Him I can do anything. It helps me to see everyone through different eyes. Everyone is a child of God and because of the Atonement of Jesus Christ we have the opportunity to be saved from sin and return to Him. Show more Show less
