Hi I'm Greg

I'm an instructional designer, a father of 3, and an avid reader.

About Me

If I could, I would be a full time student for the rest of my life. I love to learn! I've started a small business, written a science fiction novel, and am now trying to learn Spanish. I am happiest when being outside with my family, visiting the public library, and eating amazing plant-based food.

Why I am a Mormon

In interacting with many people of different backgrounds and faiths I have been asked this question. I think it is important to constantly be asking myself this same thing. Being a mormon to me is much more then just being a part of an organization or claiming a denomination. I feel like striving to become a true Latter-day Saint is just that, continually seeking to emulate the example of the Savior by Christlike living. The blessings within this gospel pattern of living exceed anything I have found elsewhere and give me immeasurable hope in all I do. I am a Mormon because what I stand for is true, and though there are a multitude of references and evidences to the truthfulness of it, I know it is true by the power of the Holy Ghost. This has been a monumental blessing to me and to my life.

How I live my faith

Every day I rely on God as a collaborator with me in my desire to live in a loving attitude toward my fellow man. When I do stupid things and make mistakes I reflect, apologize (repent), set goals, and strive to change my desires and actions in order to become a better human being. I am always trying to learn more, love deeper, and focus on the things that matter most in life. By prayerfully serving others and letting my own worries or concerns take the back seat, I feel closer to my Heavenly Father and His son.

What do Mormons believe happens to us after we die? What do Mormons believe about life after death?

Just as being born into a mortal life here on earth is critical to our eternal growth, death is also a part of of this plan. After we die our spirits go to a place simply called "the spirit world" in which we wait for the final judgement. What is really neat about this is that those who did not have the opportunity to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ while living on the earth will hear it there! Show more Show less

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is an ancient record, sort of like the Bible, but written primarily by people living on the American continent. This epic collection of books is both a history of a great civilization, and a spiritual record maintained by a variety of prophets and disciples of Christ. Like the Bible, the Book of Mormon has many stories, sermons, and parables that offer insight and guidance as to the will and ways of God. Having read this book many times, I have a deep conviction that paired with the Bible, these two records provide a formidable case for the truthfulness of Christianity. The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ, and also stands as a witness that God continues to reveal his will through modern day prophets and apostles. Show more Show less
