Hi I'm Greg

I am a father of 4, a doctor, and love to learn. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to learn new things. As a doctor, I spent a good portion of my life learning how to take care of people. It has been a joy to apply that learning to help others and to make it my profession. Outside of my profession, I find that study of the past renders great light on the present. There is nothing like reading a good biography to learn about our past. I had the great experience of receiving my medical training in Virginia. History was rich and the lessons learned richer.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised with in a faithful Mormon household. I have good parents who both taught and lived the gospel. As I have grown and discovered my own path in life, I had to come to a decision on whether to continue in the faith of my childhood. It was not a difficult decision. Once that decision was made and I dedicated myself to daily observance of prayer and scripture study and active participation in the church, I have witnessed the blessings of making such a choice. It truly is an exercise of faith. You must live it first. I have come to know that The Book of Mormon is a true record and that it testifies of the divinity of Jesus Christ. As I read that book and apply the teachings of a loving Heavenly Father contained there in, I find guidance and peace in my life. Heavenly Father has a plan for us. There is purpose to this life and we actually have a role to play. Jesus Christ is my Savior who has paid the price of my sins. His church has been restored to the earth. I am so grateful for this knowledge. It gives me hope and peace in my everyday life.

How I live my faith

My faith influences every facet of my life. It truly is the lens through which I see the world. Within the church, I currently serve in the capacity that allows me to direct the action of adult men. Collectively, we have the responsibility to look after the spiritual and temporal needs of individual members and families in our congregation. I get to serve. I can say I never feel better then after accomplishing an act of service for someone else. It truly brings to me the sometimes elusive sense of peace and happiness that I believe all are striving for. With in my home my faith influences everything. When I interact with my wife and children it helps me have focus on how to love, teach and interact with them. The gospel tempers anger and promotes love and understanding. I am a better husband and father as I live my faith.
