Hi I'm Craig

I'm a lot of things. I'm a 6 footer, a husband, a father, a grandfather, an uncle, an engineer, a fisherman and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I suppose that there are several words that could describe me, outdoor enthusiast, engineer, fly fisherman, and hiker. But my favorite, by far, is father and grandpa. As parents of four boys our house was always busy. It seemed that it filled with either baseball, soccer, basketball or scouts or anything else that wasn't quiet. But those days have lead to a new chapter of grand parenthood, which I have to say is pretty grand.

Why I am a Mormon

After staring at this question for some time and reflecting on influences in my life that have shaped who I am and the standards that I have embraced, I would say that being a Mormon and follower of Christ makes me feel peaceful and happy. My foundation and belief in the gospel is a combination daily whisperings and a few pivotal events that have underpinned my testimony. Those subtle daily promptings and impressions sometimes get lost among the busyness, but as an aggregate, form the basal groundwork for my beliefs. That, coupled with a clear and unmistakable answers to prayers, confirms to me that we have a loving Father in Heaven and caring and tender Savior who has made atonement for us all.

How I live my faith

Every aspect of my life is touched by my faith. Over the years as more people at work or in the community learn that I am a Mormon, they have come to expect my life to reflect gospel standards and principles. That has made it easier, in some respects, to live a life that is faith-based. But expectations from associates and neighbors isn't the motivator. The incentive to live a life consistent with gospel principles and commandments comes from a love of God. That's my motivation.
