Hi I'm Greg

I love my God, my Savior, my family, my friends and the people I serve. I enjoy science, music, & playing guitar. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am an engineer and that is one of my passions. I enjoy the sciences, mathematics, and the touch - taste - and smell of the result of engineering. I knew I wanted to be an engineer when I was in high school. I also enjoy music, and playing the bass/guitar with my son (who also plays bass) and my wife (who plays piano and is an awesome vocalist). I have married the most wonderful wife, and I am a father to two wonderful sons whom I have named after people in the Old Testament. I love and adore my family, and would rather be with them than anyone else. I enjoy taking walks with my wife (and now sons included) which I have done since the first date I had with her before we were married. I enjoy the outdoors, physical exercise, martial arts (which I haven't done for a couple of years), and reading.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have a testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Gospel of Jesus Christ has brought so much happiness and joy in my life. It has buoyed me up through the difficult and hard times, and has given me courage and hope to face life's challenges. I know that God lives, that he is my Heavenly Father, and that he gave his Only Begotten Son, my Savior to break the bands of death and sin, so that I and all of his children can live with him again. One of the most vivid times I recall gaining a testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is when my father died while I was teenager. I remember the pain I felt, and sometimes bitterness that he could be taken from me. I remember one day praying to God after I had cried for quite some time during the day, and feeling this sweet peaceful feeling come over me knowing that this life is not the end. I knew without a doubt that I would see my Father again, and be able to reunite with him in the presence of God and my Savior.

How I live my faith

I love serving in the Church, at work, and in my home. I thought the greatest calling in the Church was to serve in the nursery (3 to 5 year old), until I had the opportunity to serve with the youth (12 to 18 year old). The youth are awesome. No other word to describe it. Especially in a day and age where so many of the teenagers in the world seem to not have direction. It is awesome that they are taught amongst other things; accountability, gratitude, achieving an education, respecting family, being a good friend, respecting their bodies, choosing good entertainment/music, respectful language, dating standards, sexual purity, repentance, honesty, sabbath day observance, tithe and fast offerings, physical health, service, and going forward with faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. It is wonderful to see them become leaders, serve other, and gain a testimony of the Savior Jesus Christ. Their is not end to the good that they can do. I have been a witness to miracles.
