Hi I'm Garet
I have lived my whole life in idaho and im proud of it. I like to call Idaho the motherland because there is no where else like good old Idaho. My family is the best in the world and i love them with everything i got. They have taught me how to live like Jesus Christ lived and taught me how to be a good person. They taught me how to work hard and what it means to dig deep inside yourself and find strength. They taught me that by a good hard life on the farm and i enjoyed every minute of it. Im adventures and sometimes a little crazy. Yet i love life to the fullest and look for the good in every situation. There is so much saddness and deppression in the world. I fight it by finding joy in the journey of life not just last tell the end but to endure it well.
Why I am a Mormon
i am a mormon because i have recieved a burning witness by the power of the Holy Ghost that what i believe is true. I was born into the Mormon faith but just like each member of it i had to gain a personal witness that what i believe is true. It took me a long time and a lot of slaps to the head because of my stupid ways to finally humble myself enough to rely upon the Savior and his reddeming power. Nevertheless once i did i was filled with so much love peace and joy that i cannot begin to describe it. Since that moment a cold snowy night in a idaho farm yard. My testimony has grown 100 fold. My testimony at first was cemented and founded upon Jesus Christ and that was it. Yet since then i have gained a powerful witness that Joseph Smith is a Prophet of God and that he was called by God to restore Christs church to the earth. Since then i have gained a powerful witness that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ and that each principle and doctrine that it teaches is true. That is why i am a mormon not because my parents are mormon. Not because i have friends that are mormon. It is because i found out for myself through study, prayer and the school of hard knocks that the church to which i belong is true. the Spirit of God has born witness to me that it is true and i will never deny what i know to be true.
How I live my faith
i live my life day by day and prayer by prayer. Life is difficult at times for me and sometimes i dont even want to get up in the mornings. Nevertheless i know that i stand tallest when im on my knees praying for strength. My heart is always praying to God in all i do for strength for guidance and support. I also go around doing the best i can to bring joy to those who are in need. I love making people laugh and feel good about themselves. I love helping people like you to realize that you are great that you are worth it and that you are a child of God. that he knows you and me and he wants us to be happy. I live my faith by working hard in the weight room by giving my all on the football field and giving all my heart to the Lord Jesus Christ who strengthens me. Each one of us is GREAT you are great you have something that no one else has. Christ needs you to rise above yourself and standout. He needs you and me to be a light unto all nations to fill peoples hearts with hope love and joy. He needs us to forget ourselves and serve those around us. Help those who are in need and strengthen the weak. I know that you can do it. I know that you can change lives! So right now i challenge you to not let the world change you but to change the world around you! Be someone that those who come after us can rely upon and count on! Lets do it together!
