Hi I'm Griffin

I love sports and lifting weights, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I graduated with a degree in Economics. Currently I'm in between jobs and I have my own landscaping company. I'm a father of one little girl and married to a beautiful wife. I love everything about sports! Whether it's playing, watching, or coaching, I seem to always be involved. When I'm not working I love to watch a good movie, spend time with my family, or lift weights at the gym.

Why I am a Mormon

The Mormon church has been a huge blessing in my life. I have been blessed to be raised in an environment where I was taught the gospel at a young age. It's because of my parents, who taught me well. I feel that I owe them a big part of who I am today. I served a mission in the states and am so grateful for the opportunity to do so, because I was able to really study the scriptures and learn about the gospel, and really find out who I am and who I wanted to become as a man. Even now, years later, I am able to remember what I learned on my mission. Especially going through rough times, those teachings have really helped me through. I believe that the knowledge that I have gained about the Savior has made me a better person in so many ways. I really believe that I am a better father, better husband, better brother, better son, because of Jesus Christ and his gospel. The Mormon faith has given me an opportunity to learn so many truths, it has given me an atmosphere to have the Holy Spirit with me to teach me these truths. I have many life long friends that have been great examples to me and share my same values and beliefs, that have helped me to be a better person. It has been because of the church that I have met these great friends. I am grateful that I have been put in a place where I can learn about truth. There have been times in my life where my faith has been tested. If it were not for the foundation of the gospel and the many truths that I have learned over the years, I would not be so fortunate to be where I am today. When I talk about truth, I mean the truth of the gospel. That Jesus Christ is our Saviour, that he suffered for our sins, that Joseph Smith was a prophet called of God, and that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and coincides with the Bible to teach us of Christ, and lastly that we have a prophet today that can help us know Gods will. I am grateful to be a Mormon

How I live my faith

I love to be involved with my local congregation. I attend regular Sunday meetings with my family and currently work with the cub scouts in my ward. I like to be involved with youth and seem to relate to them. The church gives me the opportunity to serve and be an example to the young men. It's great to see young men making good choices and becoming who the Lord wants them to be. Aside from working with the youth the church has given me a lot of opportunities to serve families within my ward and community. There are always things I can do to help someone out, such as lending a hand during moves, giving people rides when they don't have transportation, and owning a landscaping company has allowed me to offer part time employment to those who need the extra income.
