Hi I'm Greg Monroe

I'm a Californian Surfer/Wakeboarder/Snowboarder. I'm an accounting student and a Spanish Teacher. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm obsessed with board-sports, running, and problem solving. I'm a passionate wakeboarder, snowboarder, surfer, and longboarder. When I'm not in the ocean, on the mountain, or behind a boat, I can be found studying accounting at Brigham Young University, or going for a run. I have run two half-marathons and am currently training for a full marathon. I served a mission as a volunteer representative for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Kentucky for two years. I spent most of those two years teaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the Hispanic community.

Why I am a Mormon

Although raised LDS, I am a passionate Mormon today because of the purpose and meaning I feel in my life as I live my faith. It all began with reading the Book of Mormon and praying to know if it is the word of God when I was 18. I felt a joy, happiness, and meaning that has since defined my life. As I've learned and applied the teachings of Jesus Christ to my life, I've changed to be a better man, friend, and brother. As I've seen others learn of our faith and try it, I've seen similar results in their lives. I love being better every day, and there is no better way to become more like Christ than being a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I teach brand new missionaries Spanish and teaching skills at the LDS Missionary Training Center, and I LOVE my job. I also teach a missionary preparation class Sunday mornings in my local ward (congregation) for young members of the church that will be leaving on missions in the next year. I'm very passionate about helping others to better their lives by understanding and applying the teachings of Jesus Christ in their lives, and love helping new or soon-to-be missionaries understand how to effectively share our message.
