Hi I'm Craig Skembo

I have been flying commercially for 35 years and have a great family...seven children and sixteen grandchildren. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a 35 year airline pilot and have been married forty years and have seven children. We lived in Dallas, Texas for twenty-three years and currently live between Gilbert, Arizona and Far West, Missouri. Both my wife and I went to BYU and were married in the Salt Lake Temple, after my mission to California, in 1971.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I tested the truth of the Book of Mormon by prayer. The answer I received and the change it made in my life have confirmed to me that the Book of Mormon is true and that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the restored church of Christ.

How I live my faith

I try to keep the commandments and the covenants that I have made with my Heavenly Father. I am not perfect, not by a long way. I need the Atonement of Christ in my life every day. I try to repent of things I do wrong and depend on the grace of Christ to cleanse me from the sins I commit. I try to do my best every day and leave kthe rest up to God.

What do Mormons believe about “eternal life?”

Craig Skembo
Mormons believe that by keeping Gods commandments and through the grace of Jesus Christ we may live with God and Christ after we leave this life. We also believe that our families can be together eternally. Show more Show less

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Craig Skembo
Mormons send missionaries throughout the world to preach the Gospel of Christ as it has been restored. Unlike other Christian faiths we try to talk to anyone and everyone who will listen. Some churches accuse us of "stealing" their members, but we let everyone listen and pray to God if our message is true or not. Show more Show less

What blessings can we receive through the gift of the Holy Ghost?

Craig Skembo
The Holy Ghost is a member of the Godhead and is given the assignment to testify to the truth and more importantly that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and the only Savior of mankind. Show more Show less

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Craig Skembo
Ancient prophets wrote the Book of Mormon as a record of their dealings with God and their trials and faith promoting experiences. These records were translated by Joseph Smith, Jr. under the direction and help of God. Show more Show less
