Hi I'm Craig

I'm an elementary school teacher in Texas. I love snowboarding and watching movies. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I teach third grade at an intercity school and love it! I have a 2 year old boy who loves tractors, digging in the dirt, and playing with his tools.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it brings me peace and happiness. Our Heavenly Father loves us so much that he has continued to call prophets in our day. Me and my family have been blessed by trying to follow the Savior even when it seems hard. One of my favorite parts about being a member of the church is the many opportunities I get to serve and help others.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by visiting people who are interesting in learning about Jesus Christ with the missionaries. I also serve the adult men in my area by teaching on Sundays and helping to organize activities. Some recent activities I helped in organizering was a Chili Cook Off, Family Game Night, and a Barbaque. I feel that the best way that I can live my faith is to help better others lives around me by trying to live a Christ-like life.

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

Thomas S. Monson is the prophet today. Just as God chose prophets like Noah and Moses from ancient times, Jesus Christ has chosen him for our day. Through direct revelation from the Savior he leads the church and helps us to understand what Christ would have us do in our rapidly changing time. I love listening to him speak and I especially love the stories he tells from his life. He helps me to understand and apply the Gospel of Jesus Christ to my daily life. I have heard him speak in person and am grateful that God has blessed us with a leader that truly loves men and serves them with all his heart. Show more Show less
