In recent years, Greg Trimble’s blog posts in defense of the LDS Church have been read by millions.

But at age 21, Greg Trimble wasn’t an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

A spiritual awakening the night before his sophomore season of college baseball changed the course of his life, he told the Deseret News.

“God had had it up to here with me. He was done ‘nudging’ me. That night … I had what I would consider a Godly beat down. It was almost as if the next day held some sort of cosmic significance in my life,” Trimble said. “It was as strong of a spiritual experience as I have ever had in my life up to that point and even until now. The message? Quit baseball. Drop your scholarship. Enlist in God’s army.”

Who is Greg Trimble? The blogger’s bio on his website is pretty disarming.

“I’m supposed to jot down a bunch of important credentials here that will convince you that I’m some kind of great writer, but really, I’m just a normal guy, leading a very normal life,” Trimble writes. “Above all, I love God and my family. I love to write and hope that something I say helps someone have a better day. I just want to do some good in this crazy world.”

It’s a simple yet straightforward introduction to a man whose blog has received approximately 7 million page views and attracted tens of thousands of social media followers in just a few years.
