Hi I'm Grant

I build roads & bridges. I'm a husband, father, artist, and one fine guitarist (if I say so myself). I'm also a Mormon.

About Me

First and foremost, I'm a husband and father. I'm a husband to the most beautiful, fun, and amazing woman in the world. I have the four greatest children a father could ask for. We have a daughter with special needs which has been a huge blessing to our family. I'm a fifth generation Arizonan and work in the heavy-highway construction industry, building bridges and roads throughout Arizona, Nevada, and Utah. The most satisfying part of my work is when I drive with my kids and they point out the bridges that dad built. I served a mission in Buenos Aires, Argentina and love to speak Spanish and love anything related to Hispanic culture. I love exercising and lifting weights - trying to live up to the first Mr. Olympia, Larry Scott...also a Mormon. I've played the guitar for over 20 years - so yeah, Mormons can rock out too.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a sixth generation member of the church - this was the faith of my fathers, it is the faith I was taught as a child, and it is the faith I'll live throughout my life. I'm a Mormon because of goodly parents that taught me correct Christian principles in my youth, whereby through life's experiences I could quickly put those principles to the test and easily discern how my life was blessed by obeying the commandments of God and those principles taught by my parents. When the opposite occurred, it still served to fortify the same testimony that there is a right way to live and be happy. Each experience in life, good or bad, has served to strengthen my faith. I'm also a Mormon because God has a plan for us and means for our families to be united eternally - the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the only church that provides the answers to that plan and the means by which to accomplish it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by loving my wife and kids, loving my neighbors, being a good friend, showing a good example, and working hard to follow the example of Jesus Christ. My time in Argentina serving as a missionary helped to solidify my faith as I was able to teach people about Jesus Christ and watch them accept his teachings and be baptized. I feel very blessed because I get to do the same thing in my community, working with the local missionaries to find and teach those who want to hear the Gospel. Other than being a father and husband, there are few things as spiritually fulfulling or strengthening than to work with the missionaries and feel the confirmation of the truth of their message.
