Hi I'm Greg Peay

I'm from San Diego, California. I spearfish, surf, ski, mountain bike and play the guitar. I love the ocean. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm going to Helsinki, Finland on my mission in two weeks. I like to go to the beach all the time! Some of my skills include spearfishing and surfing. I also enjoy the mountains and the activities found therein, so I love skiing and mountain biking. Pretty much anything you can shred, I love doing, like the waves, the pow, the guitar, the asphalt on a skateboard, and the dirt on a bike. I like spending time with friends and family as we ride the ocean blue. Also, California burritos are an important part of my life, too.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon! Basically, my family has been part of this church since the early days when the gospel was restored. However there comes a point in every member's life where they need to come to a knowledge of this church on their own. As I have grown older and especially as I have prepared to go on my mission this last year, I have come to a knowledge that this is God's church. I love the gospel and the joy and peace that it brings to my life. It truly is a wonderful life to live and while there are still many challenges, it helps overcoming them be easier. The church members are a great group of people to be around and it is a family. There are so many blessings that come from being baptized and having the Holy Spirit as a constant companion in my life. The gospel is so good!!!!!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to follow Christ in what I do. That is really what it's all about. Trying to become like Christ and being perfected through Him. I am following Him now as I prepare to go on my mission to Finland. I know that God loves all His children. The best way I can live my faith is by helping and serving others. Whether it be through a calling I have in church or people I meet on the street, though I'm far from perfect , I try to help others.
