Hi I'm Greg

I grew up in Arizona. I'm a High School Choir director teacher. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the father of six children. I am a high school music teacher who has been teaching for almost 30 years. I love to hike, travel and spend time with my family. I have been a singer since I was in high school and I love to sing solos and in any kind of groups and choirs whenever I can. I am a conductor for an adult community choir, as well. I love old movies and their history and I try to find out as much about them as I can. I love trivia and trivia games and could play them all day, if I had the chance.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized into the LDS church when I was 11 years old. My entire family are converts to the church. I was an inactive member for years until I met the woman who would become my wife. She too was an inactive member and we decided to be married and return to full activity in our church. I have always had a testimony and our desire to do the best possible thing for our family was just the boost I needed to do what I always knew, deep down that I should do. I have a strong testimony of the truth of the Book of Mormon. I know that Joseph Smith received a vision of our Heavenly Father and of his son, Jesus Christ. I know he later translated the writings that we in the Mormon Church know as The Golden Plates into what is now the Book of Mormon. I know the truth of our Heavenly Father's Plan of Happiness for all of us and the opportunity that we have to return to him.

How I live my faith

I have a unique opportunity to live and be an example of what I believe as I work as a high school teacher. I try to do those things and behave in ways that I know to be right, even when the environment at a high school is not always in keeping with those beliefs. I have had many opportunities to fulfill callings (church jobs) in my ward and have always tried my best to be of service to others. I have had various opportunities to use my music background to serve in the church and have always enjoyed and been very grateful for the chance. I have helped organize major events for adults and youth. My wife and I have always looked forward to opportunities to serve those who have need of our help in and out of the church. We believe that our purpose in life is to study and learn all we can about the life of the Savior, Jesus Christ, and to endeavor to follow his example in order to grow closer to him.
