Hi I'm Greg

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father of 2 children and 10 grand children. I am a civil engineer and graduated from Arizona State University. I am very active in my grand children's life and try to catch as many practices, games, school activities as I can. I have been a leader in the Boy's Scouts of America for 35 years and a Little League coach for my children and grand children. I also tutor my grand children and their friends when they need help in math. My son and I, do white water rafting for excitment and have gone on rivers in Arizona and Washington. I spend many hours each week in doing genealogy.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the church since I was eight years old, but obtained a testimony of the blessings of this church while I was a young married. I have a testimony of how the LDS Church strengthens a married. Many of the things that we get bombarded with in the media and in life, tend to be negative influences and can convince you how easy it is to just give up. Almost everything that we do in the church is meant to strengthen your married and your family. The time everyone is willing to give in service not only helps our own family, but our friends. Mormons can make the same mistakes everyone else does, but we have a lot more positive influences to keep us fighting to keep our families together. I have a testimony of why we have come to this earth to be tested and to grow and I know that if I continue to improve on what my Heavenly Father and Jesus want us to do, I will be given an opportunity to return to their presence and that I will be able to be with my earthly family.

How I live my faith

I enjoy working with the youth in our ward and have had opportunities to take them camping, to the lake, dances, snow skiing, rafting, canoeing, skits, and plays. I have seen what positive influence peer pressure can be to our youth and what great leaders these young men and women grow to be. The payback to me for all this time that I have spent with these young men and women is to see them beginning the process all over again with their own families.
