Hi I'm Craig

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I do a lot of things for fun, like play video games, draw, and write. I'm a college student with a Computer Science major and an emphasis in Animation. Someday, I'd love to have a family, a wife and four kids.

Why I am a Mormon

The world's a crazy place, and it's really easy to lose sight of the things that really matter. College, especially, can be a time of struggle, of finding one's place in the world. I'm a Mormom because of one thing: Christ. Christ loves us just as He loved the people who lived hundreds and thousands of years ago. He loves us so much that He has sent living apostles and prophets for our day, prophets that teach us how we can apply Christ's teachings in our lives and avoid the evils that threaten to destroy us. There is so much peace in knowing that the Lord will protect us if we follow the counsel of His prophets today. I know that Christ is the Savior of the world, that He bled and died so that each of us can find forgiveness from our mistakes. With His help, we can rise above ourselves and the troubles of the world, no matter how hard it gets. I know that God gives us commandments to show us the way to be truly happy in this life. I know that if we are faithful in keeping these commands, we can live with Him and experience true joy. And I know that God has sent real apostles and prophets to teach us these things, so that we may know all of God's truths.

How I live my faith

I'm on a committee in charge of visiting other church members who we haven't seen in a while. We go and visit then to see how life is going, see if they need anything, and just try to be their friend. The members also have a lot of fun activities that keep us involved and in touch with one another.

What do Mormons believe about the nature of God?

God is a very real person, just like you or me. He has a physical body that is perfect and immortal. If He were to stand before us, we'd see that He looks like a human being. God is literally our Father. He created us in His image. And like any respectable father, God loves us, His children. He wants more than anything for us to be happy. He's put together a big plan to help us become just as happy as He is. He placed us on this earth in this life so that we can learn and grow. He gave us commandments to protect us and lead us to happiness. We show God that we love Him by following those commandments. We make God sad when we don't keep those commandments. The most important part of that plan was the Savior Jesus Christ. Our Father sent Jesus Christ to pay the price for our disobedience to His commandments. Jesus made two things possible. After His death, when Christ was resurrected, everyone who would ever live would live again forever. After his suffering in the Garden of Gethsemane and His death on the cross, anyone who wanted to be forgiven for their mistakes could be forgiven if they lived Christ's teachings. Show more Show less
