Hi I'm Craig

I grew up in Gilbert, Arizona. I'm a husband, father of six, and owner of a family business. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married, and my wife and I have six beautiful children. I own and manage a family business. I have a finance degree and a law degree. I enjoy vacations with my wife, waterskiing (wakesurfing), racquetball, coaching my children in sports, and spending time with friends and family.

Why I am a Mormon

So much happens in this mortal existence that having a solid belief, principled, and moral foundation is essential to live a happy life. Jesus Christ is my foundation. He taught His gospel while here on earth. Men killed Him and His apostles necessitating that Christ restore His gospel. His teachings and priesthood authority have been restored in these latter days through the Prophet Joseph Smith. I believe these truths and know them to be true. My faith in Jesus Christ and His atonement and adherence to His teachings as revealed through His prophets provides the foundation necessary for me to navigate through life with joy.

How I live my faith

I have had many opportunities to serve and participate in the community. Most recently I worked with young men ages 16 to 18 on boy scout advancement and religious goals. We also participated in many other recreational activities generally enjoyable to young men of that age. Currently, I have the opportunity to work with men who hold the priesthood of God in our community and oversee the various local church communities. We all seek to serve God and strengthen each other and the community.
