Hi I'm Craig

I've never lived anywhere more than five years. I love to be outside. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born to Indiana, moved to Colorado when I was two, then later to Albuquerque, NM. I went to BYU-Idaho for a year, and plan to return after my mission. I am serving as a missionary in the Pennsylvania Pittsburgh Mission from January 2012 to January 2014. My family now lives in Reston, VA. Lucky me getting to go home from my mission to a new home which is only a hop skip and a jump away from my mission. I love to golf. I'm terrible at it, but that's okay. I love to be outside and do anything active. Skydiving, check. I have an older sister who is married, and older brother who is married, and a younger brother who isn't old enough to think about being married. I love my family and spending time with them.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon, because I know that this church is Christ's church on the earth today. I know that Jesus Christ died for me, and suffered for my sins. I know that by striving to be like Christ was everyday I will be able to live with my family forever. I have read the Book of Mormon, and I know it is true. I have gained this testimony from diligent study, and prayer. I have felt the Holy Ghost confirm to me that it is true. I love the church, and I love the feelings I have when I'm there.

How I live my faith

As I continue to study the gospel, I learn how many changes I need to make in my life to more actively and more fully live my faith. I am just a simple person, but I know that I am a son of God. This means the world to me. No matter how hard things get I know that He will always be there for me. I try to always remember this, and always have a positive outlook on life. I try to help others whenever I can. I know how much peace and joy the gospel has brought to my life, and I try to live my life in a way that others can see that as well, so that I can share the gospel with them. I do this by being as Christlike as I can, trying my best to represent Him, and become who He would want me to be.

In whom should we have faith?

Are Mormons Christians?

Yes. 100% I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. I believe that He came into this world, taught His gospel, suffered for my sins, was crucified, and resurrected. I know that salvation is possible to all only through His Atonement. We follow his teachings. We live our lives the best we can, and strive to be like Him. Show more Show less
