Hi I'm Garet

I am a Member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

About Me

I am a father of 4 wonderful children, The husband of a wonderful wife. I have always enjoyed the peaceful things of life that generate reflection and time to ponder what is most important. I love spending time with my family. I long to be here with them. When I am home I feal love and comfort from them. I love to stay busy and I think the idle mind is a dangerouse thing. So wheather its fixing something thats broken, working in the garden, playing with my kids or fullfilling my responsibilities with work or church I find joy in it. I work in the Dental industry as a repair and installation tech. I help keep the dental offices running so they can make your life better. It's rewarding to be able to fix something that is broken, it is especially rewarding to see a smiling face when you are done. My interests include any amount of working with my hands and fixing whatever I can get my hands on. I developed as well an appreciation for the arts at a young age from my mother. I love singing and listening to good music. I love to sketch, draw, paint, sculpt. I havn't done much of this in my married life but I still enjoy doing it. I learned the art of work from my Dad. Together as a family we remodeled 2 homes. I learned so much about making something that is lets say less than desireable into something that is nice and livable. I shared many memories with my family during these times that were both hard and rewarding. Just the way work should be.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family. I learned from a young age who God was and that he is my father. I learned that Jesus Christ was my savior and that the church is led by prophets. When I became a teenager it was time to find out for myself if these things were true. I was faced with some hard descisions in my life that would be pivitol moments for me. I needed to know for myself the truth. I remember deciding that it was time for me to read the book of mormon and study its contents. I remember feeling different when I read about Jesus Christs teachings and the words of the prophets. When I read about the cleansing power of the Atonement my heart burned inside. I wanted to be a part of that. One evening I read through the introduction to the Book of Mormon, I read about how the Book of Mormon came forth and the purpose of the Book of Mormon. After reading those things I knelt down and I asked God if these things were true. I felt a Joy and a warmth in my soul that I can not deny. I know that the spirit was telling me that these things were true. I have had many similar experiences with Gods church. I am grateful for all the love and Joy it has brought into my life. I am Grateful for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It truely is Gods Church on the earth.

How I live my faith

I try to go every day having done something good for someone else. Many times that is my own family. I know if I am trying to serve others that God will bless me. That is what Jesus Christ would have me do. The Church gives many opportunities to serve both great and small. And so that is what I TRY to do. I try to serve.
