Hi I'm Greg

I grew up in Colorado. I love playing basketball. I'm currently in college. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I come from a larger family with six kids, and I am the fourth child. I grew up in Colorado and have lived here most of my life. I love playing sports, especially soccer and basketball, but I play just about everything. I also love all types of video games. I am currently attending college studying mechanical engineering with a minor in mathematics. I will be leaving shortly to serve a mission in Mexico, after which I will continue my education. I am an adventure seeker and someday hope to travel all over the world.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it brings me a tremendous amount of happiness and peace to my life. The teachings and doctrines of my church help me to know who I really am. I am a child of God! I have a living Heavenly Father who knows me personally and loves me dearly. It is so comforting to know that I have Savior, Jesus Christ, who loves me as well. I am so grateful to be a member of my church. The Book of Mormon has brought me closer to Jesus Christ and increased my faith in Him more than anything else in this world. It is true! The church is true! It is the only true church of God on the face of the Earth today. I know this because I have prayed about it and receive a personal witness of its truthfulness. I am a Mormon because I know this church is true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to become like my Savior, Jesus Christ. The whole reason we are here on this Earth is to be learn and grow and become more like Christ. He lived a perfect life, and though I am not perfect I still try to walk in His footsteps. I try to be kind to the people around me and even strangers I don't know. I try to show love and compassion to others, even if they have upset or harmed me. I try to serve others whenever I have the chance. Living my faith involves a lot of selfless service. I am a leader within my church, so I get lots of opportunities to plan lessons and activities for other members of my faith.

Are Mormons Christians?

Yes!!! Mormons are Christians. I am a Christian and I love my Savior Jesus Christ. 2 Nephi 25:26, a verse in the Book of Mormon, says, "And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins." Christ is my rock, my sure foundation. It is through Him and His atoning sacrifice for me that I can recieve a remission of my sins. I know Christ is my Redeemer. I know that He is the Son of God, sent to Earth to redeem all mankind. I know He died and paid the ultimate price for me. And I know that He lives! I am Christian and Jesus Christ is my living Savior. Show more Show less
