Hi I'm Grant

I'm an avid cyclist, love the outdoors, married for 30 wonderful years, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father of four children, grandfather of three beautiful grandchildren, and feel my family is the most important gift in my life. I love the outdoors, especially biking, camping, hiking and skiing. Mostly, I love to keep in good health and fitness by riding my bikes. Over the past 15 years my exercise has turned to mountain and road biking, and I enjoy competitive racing in both diciplines (mountain and road). I enjoy doing things that are physically challenging becuase it helps me realize the importance of both body and spirit, and how I need to keep both in "shape". Years ago, while running my first marathon, and pushing myself to the limit, I experienced a true distiction between the physical body and our spirit. It was my spirit that gave my physical body strength to complete the race. I have felt this separation many times as I have participated in physically challenging activities, all of which bring me closer to my Heavenly Father.

Why I am a Mormon

At the age of 19 I had the opportunity to serve a two year mission to Seoul Korea. This experience provided personal growth that has laid a foundation for my faith in Christ and faith in His gospel. I have been able to serve others through working with young men in scouting activities, teaching adult classes, and stewardship over several families within our neighborhood. I try to live my life like Christ would have me live and that is "love thy neighbor as thy self." Being a Mormon has provided the absolute best direction and most happiness for me and my family's life because it helps me be a better, husband, father, provider, friend and neighbor. I count my church membership as one of my greatess blessings, and that's WHY I'M A MORMON!

How I live my faith

I try to establish patterns of faith by living in a way that adheres to Christ and His teachings. I serve on a United Way Board in my community and have seen how many organizations provide critical services to many needy individuals. It has helped me realize the importance of having compassion for my fellow man, and that every single person is a son or daughter of our Heavnly Father, and He expects us to love and serve one another. We should never feel alone. My church helps me feel of His love and concern and assisted in building my faith through gospel instruction, service opportunities, teaching opportunities and social activities. I let others know of my faith in Christ and love to share my testimony as often as possible.
