Hi I'm Craig

I am a father, husband, veteran and locksmith. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I served in the US Army as a helicopter mechanics in Alabama, Egypt and California. I was married very young,19 years old, had two sons and was divorced after nearly 11 years of marriage. I have remarried to a great woman with two lovely daughters. My wife is finishing her degree in secondary education biology and when she is done I am returning to finish my degree as a manufacturing engineer. My wife is Kara my oldest son Jake, oldest daughter Emma, younger son Devan, and younger daughter Chloe. We live in Mesa AZ and both Kara and I grew up here.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church though that is not why I am a member. I found the gospel for my self when I was in my early thirties. I was having a tough time understanding my purpose and dealing with the difficulties that life throws at you. I got to a point were I knelt down and admitted to myself and Heavenly Father that I could not make it through this life on my own I needed help. I felt that warm loving feeling that comes with the spirit testifying to me that Christ was with me and that I be okay. I cant say that from that moment on everything has been perfect but I can say that it has been better and nothing has come before me that I could not handle with the help of my Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church every Sunday, teaching my children how to chose the right both by talking to the about the dangers that exist in society and by mine and my wives examples. I am in the Sunday school presidency I am one of the people that makes sure that people are classes and being taught the gospel.

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

The greatest gift I can think of is the gift of the Holy Ghost. It is a constant companion a person there that always will listen to you and comfort you when you need it. If you have your mind right and are living the gospel the Holy Ghost can warn you of a bad situation. That little voice that tells you this is a bad idea that is the Holy Ghost. Show more Show less
