Hi I'm Greg Harr

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband to my high school sweetheart. We have been married since 1997. I am a father to five young and healthy boys.(#3 and 4 are twins) I am an avid football fan, and an avid fan of the outdoors. I love to hunt and fish. Since 2005, when I graduated from dental school, I have been a dentist. Previous to that I was beginning to think that I would be a professional student forever. I love my profession and the people that surround me at work, AND, nothing is more important to me than my wife and boys. As much as I love my hobbies, recently my life revolves around my boys and their activities and interests. They love football, basketball, piano and scouting. Sometimes it seems a little hectic, but I think that it is important for boys to keep their minds and bodies busy with healthy activities.

Why I am a Mormon

I was lucky enough to be born into an LDS family. I'm not 100% sure that I fully understood what I was getting myself into when I got baptized at the age of 8. I think that at that time I did it because the rest of my family had done it and it seemed like it was the thing to do. I did know that it was a good thing, and if it seemed like I was doing something that wasn't right or moral, I wouldn't have done it. As I have grown up and had more experience in life, I realize that the principles I have learned in the church are the only way that I can find true happiness in this life. Things such as stressing the importance of family, the idea of an eternal family, and being able to spend eternity with my wife and children, brothers and sisters and parents is a huge factor for me. Having the knowledge that we have an existing prophet on the earth that receives direct revelation from Heavenly Father that applies directly to me and people in "our time" is a big deal for me. The idea that no man or woman on the earth is or can be perfect without the atonement of Jesus Christ has always been a comfort for me. This way I know that what other people think of me is not important, but my personal relationship with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ is. I'm so grateful for the atonement because I am not perfect either. It is such a comfort to know that if I humble myself and ask with a sincere heart for forgiveness that I can be forgiven. I know that this principle is true because of the children that I have. I can't imagine them making a mistake, coming to me with a broken heart and me not forgiving them. I know that my Heavenly Father's love is more than I can comprehend, and if that's the case, he will forgive me too.

How I live my faith

Ever since I have been married I have been involved with the youth in the different areas I have lived. I have taught Sunday school to young men and women between the ages of 12 and 18. I have been a scout master to boys between the ages of 12 and 18, and I am currently in charge of a group of young men between in that same age group. The idea is to help these young men come up with fun and clean activities to do on a regular basis including activities involved in scouting, sporting activities, outdoor camping activities, as well as leadership responsibilities. The group that I am currently involved with is really remarkable. Almost all of them play at least one musical instrument, some play multiple. Several of them are involved in plays at school. Some of them are really into scouting, and others are passionate about one or more of the sports they are involved in. More importantly, they are obedient, and respectful young men. Sometimes I wonder if my involvement with this group of young men is for their benefit or mine.
