Hi I'm Tony Gregor

I'm a father, husband, uncle, brother, employer, veteran...& I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I own a BBQ themed restauant in a small town. I'm an AVID bicycle rider. I love food, but to keep the weight off the bike works for me! My wife and I have been married for 15 years and we have 3 daughters ages 13, 9 & 8. I spend time in our vegetable garden during the spring and summer months to relax and enjoy canning in the fall. Here in southern Minnesota there is enough variety that we are able to can 25-30 different kinds of jams and jellies as well.

Why I am a Mormon

In 1997 I found myself looking for more from the protestant church I was attending. The contention over points of doctrine didn't seem to make sense to me. After a Wednesday night Bible study class, as I walked home I prayed to the God of Heaven that He would help me find the answers I desired. 2 weeks later the Missionaries from the LDS Church knocked on my door. I didn't recognize them as an answer to my prayer. In fact I let them in so I would have someone to contend with. In short - they answered ALL my questions. For the first time in my life (I was 31 years old) I prayed vocally, I asked if what I was being taught was true. I REALLY wanted to know if the Book of Mormon was true. No angel visited me, NO voice was heard - but I KNEW that what I was being taught was in fact true. My girlfriend (now my wife) was terrified that I was making a grave error, but she too came to a knowlege of the truth. We got married, started a family and have been active in The Church ever since. This is a VERY condensed version of my conversion story, but suffice it to say I've found The Lord. I've served in many callings over the last decade and half, and my testimony of the truthfullness is stronger today than ever.

How I live my faith

I have learned that service to others and being actively involved with life are key to happiness. Fun and happiness are NOT the same thing. As a restraunt owner, much of my service is food oriented! We try to bring dinner to anyone we meet who has recently had a baby, or a death in the family - any trauma type event etc. It's just a small token to let people know we are thinking about them and praying for those who can use help in any circumstance. REGARDLESS of their beliefs or membership in ANY church. Visiting members of the church, monthly and really getting to know others is what life is all about. SERVICE to your fellow man brings a change in perspective that words can not describe. I LOVE to live my faith!
