Hi I'm Greg

I live in Western Pennsylvania. I'm married and have five kids.

About Me

I'm the sixth child in a family of eight children— four boys and four girls. I grew up in Massachusetts, and attended college in Colorado where I obtained a degree in graphics. I also met my wife there. We have five wonderful and beautiful children. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, home improvement projects, and weight training.

Why I am a Mormon

When people find out I've been a Mormon all my life they generally respond with a knowing "Oh, OK" and a nod, as if the reason I'm a Mormon is that I don't know any better. The truth is, I'm a Mormon because I choose to be one. My membership in the church brings me peace and happiness; a sense of purpose. The gospel truths anchor my faith in Jesus Christ and help me to understand his plan for me.

How I live my faith

I see life as an opportunity to be the best person I can be. Our Savior, Jesus Christ, showed us the way. He didn't have an easy life, but he didn't falter in the face of inconceivable challenges. Besides atoning for our sins and providing a path for us to gain eternal life, he set the example of how we should live. The hallmark of his ministry was his selfless service to mankind. So for me, sacrificing the occasional Saturday to help someone move, or helping with some roofing or framing isn't really that big a deal.
