Hi I'm Greg

I have five children ranging in age from 16 years old to less than a year old. I practice orthodontics. I am a Mormon.

About Me

Although I was born in Utah, I grew up in California. I am the oldest of five children with four younger sisters. After serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in New England, I finished my college and went to Indiana for Dental School and an orthodontic residency. Our family moved to Montana to enjoy the beauty and outdoor adventures. We love to camp, hike and ski together. The children also have fun exploring outside. My wife and I have five children with a 16 year range. Life is busy and full of variety with children at every stage of life (nearly!)

Why I am a Mormon

In the Mormon faith I have found specific answers to questions about God's plan for His children. I have learned why God sent us to Earth to get a body and why we face challenges and trials in this life. I have learned about the power of the Savior to heal us and empower us. I believe the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the same Church that Jesus Christ established on the Earth during His mortal ministry. Christ has reestablished his Church again to the Earth with Apostles and Prophets and the authority to act in His name. I know that these things are true through the witness of the Holy Spirit.

How I live my faith

The most important way I live my faith is by staying close to the Savior in the daily things that I do. Frequent prayer and daily scripture study as an individual and as a family keep me strong and close to God. Serving others is also an important part of living my faith. As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints we have the opportunity to serve in the ministry of the Church as volunteers. I help by serving in the leadership of the local congregation. This mostly means that I help staff specific organizations in the congregation and help them to run properly. I also serve others by watching over four families to help make sure their temporal and spiritual needs are met. As Mormons we all get the chance to serve this way.
