Hi I'm Greg Jorgensen

I'm an orthodontist in New Mexico, a husband, a father of three, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Although I was born in Utah while my mom and dad were college students there, I consider myself to be from Moberly, Missouri. There I grew up in a very small town where my family and I were some of the only members of our church in the area. Although most of my friends knew that I was a Mormon, they didn't know much about the church. Through the friendships that developed by my participation in sports and music, I made a lot of friends. The things they noticed about my family and I that made us different were that we didn't smoke or drink, didn't use profanity, and had a different way of observing the Sabbath day.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I believe in the example and teachings of Jesus Christ. I believe in the Golden Rule and the Ten Commandments. I want to learn more about Christ and I strive to be more like Him in all that I do. I find that being of member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints not only provides a place to learn, it also gives me a chance to serve and to grow. I know that much of my success in life has come from my upbringing in the church. Most importantly, I love how the church has helped my family. Family is what this church is all about.

How I live my faith

Being a member of the church isn't always easy. There are a lots of distractions in the world these days. What I have come to learn is that following the teachings of the church is a safer, happier way to navigate through life's trials. I live my faith by trying to do unto others as I'd have them do unto me. I am honest in all my dealings in my business. I offer help to those around me, inside and outside of our church. I accept assignments made to my by other volunteer church leaders and do my best to carry out what ever is needed.
