Craig Florence

Craig Florence is a CPA and currently lives in Las Vegas. Years ago he left the Church believing he couldn't belong because of his attraction to men. After realizing ward members, bishops and friends cared and loved for him regardless of his attractions, Craig decided to return to church. His journey back has been a difficult one, but the Atonement and love of the Temple has brought him a true sense of joy.
