Hi I'm Craig

I am a father of five great children with a wonderful wife. I enjoy racquetball. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was raised as a Mormon and baptized at age eight. I have loving parents who have supported me all of my life and given wise counsel and advice to me and my three siblings. I am grateful every day for the blessing of a loving family. I am happily married to a wonderful woman. Together we have enjoyed many years and look forward to the promised blessings of being together through the eternities. I enjoy racquetball and other sports. This keeps me active and somewhat in shape.

Why I am a Mormon

I choose to be a Mormon because the teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints provide the answers to life's questions and provide the ordinances under the proper authority to return and live with God. I know that the Bible and The Book of Mormon are true along with other modern scripture. We have a prophet today, Thomas S. Monson to teach us and guide us with other leaders called of God. I am so thankful that as a young boy, Joseph Smith was called to restore the gospel. Through trial and tribulation he remained faithful to the end. Why did he do it? Because it is true and we are now the beneficiaries of his sacrifice. Jesus Christ loves us and is the Redeemer of the world. I encourage everyone to seek him and live His teachings.

How I live my faith

Each day it is necessary to "put on the armor of God" and take on the world. With the Savior as our guide, we can be protected and make the pot holes of life a little more manageable. I have served in many leadership roles in the church. This has given me insight to peoples live that under other circumstances I would not have had. From this and other personal experiences I know that through accepting the Savior in our lives and continuing to live His teachings will bring true happiness.
