Hi I'm Garry

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in South Australia, worked as an electrician for about 26 years until put on disability pension.

About Me

I'm a 55 year old grandfather from Australia. Computer and music are my main hobbies including singing and playing guitar. Love the old movies including musicals. My music tastes are wide and varied, not too keen on stuff after 80's. Lately I've had fun collecting old radio shows on the internet as well as legal midi. My wife works while I am the house husband.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member for about 35years now, joined when I was almost 22 years old. The first time I met the missionaries I felt a wonderful feeling as they taught me in my home, a feeling I had never before felt in my life. Before this I had began to be interested in religion but as I began to study the Bible not all I was taught measured up with the Bible. I figured I would just live a christian life and wore a large cross around my neck. Something was missing and I did not know what. Since joining the church I found what was missing. Before even though I called myself a christian I didn't know that God knew that. That came through the Holy Ghost and the testimony I gained through living the Gospel. I know without a shadow of doubt that Joseph Smith was a Prophet and saw Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ in the sacred grove. I have read and studied the Book of Mormon and love it and know it is true. It testifies of Christ and is a second witness to the Bible. If you are a sincere seeker you can know these things by the power of the Holy Ghost, as I do. .

How I live my faith

I have served in many positions in the Church. Sometimes in leadership, or teaching. My favourite time is when I am helping others and visiting them, for then you get to know the people. I have had many opportunities to share my testimony with others and the Lord has blessed me with his spirit as i have done so. Singing in various choirs has been enjoyable too.
