Hi I'm Craig Butikofer

I like to Climb Trees, I like to Jump, I like to Smile. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I grew up in Idaho Falls, Idaho- Yep- Famous Idaho Potatoes! I am the second of 4 boys. I attended BYU-Idaho for one year. I love to Jump! - In all shapes and forms, but my favourite is the Triple Jump. I also love the power of a smile and a positive attitude! Currently I am serving as a missionary in the Scotland/Ireland Mission! I have the firm Belief that duct-tape will fix just about everything and if that doesn't work than the gospel of Jesus Christ will!

Why I am a Mormon

I would say that I became a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints simply because that is how I was raised. It was always good in my life and so why object to Happiness. As I got older, I would definately say that the questions started to arise. The reasons that I am still a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is because I got that initial answer to my prayer from my Heavenly Father; and I continue to get answers from him every day!

How I live my faith

I think the way that I live my faith is pretty apparent by the badge that I wear. I am in the midst of giving two years of my life to teach others about the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ! I love sharing the Gospel with everyone! It is truly amazing how many different ways that it can apply to our lives! Sometimes it rains and sometimes it snows, but it is always worth it when you see someone feel the truth of what you have shared with them!

Are Mormons Christians?

Craig Butikofer
I think the answer to this question lies in the name of the church: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Yes, we are Christians. We follow Christ- He leads our church. Show more Show less
