Hi I'm Gary

I'm a Colorado native, minutes from the Denver Temple, and I'm grateful to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of LDS.

About Me

I work as a Career Coach/Human Resource Manager/Recruiter and when I'm not working, I enjoy riding my Harley, playing golf, and just tinkering around the house.

Why I am a Mormon

Once the truth is recieved in your heart, you cannot deny it.

How I live my faith

I go to church each week, magnify my callings, read, ponder, pray and help others.

What is faith?

Gary
For me Faith is a form of trust. I trust Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ in all I do and say. Faith without works in dead. If we do not act upon the promptings of the Holy Spirit then we deprive ourselves of the blessings that may come from our actions. The Lord will help us, no maater what, but we have to take the initiative to act according to His will, not ours. If we get discouraged, we pray for guidance. When we face adversity, and we will, we pray for guidance. When we are feeling good and everything is going well, we pray for guidance. The process is a spiritual connection that has to be continual and consistant in our lives and in our families. Show more Show less

How can we stop the spread and influence of pornography?

Gary
Pornography is an addiction just like alcohol or drugs. Once you start going down that road, Satan will pull you in and will do everything he can to keep you hooked. We as individual sons and daughters of Heavenly Father have to make a choice because our free agency is at stake! If we continue to participate in viewing porn, taking drugs, or drinking to excess, we will surely lose our ability to choose. Once this happens, we have to seek help to get untangled from the chains of addiction that bind us. Fortunately for us, the Church has an Addiction Recovery Program with meetings set up to deal with pornography and other addictions. Pornography is the worst, most addictive drug on the market, and unfortunately for our youth it is very easy to access, but very difficult to detect. We as parents are the front-line of defense for our children and we must teach them that it is wrong to view or otherwise use porn as a form of entertainment or pleasure. We must set a good example for our youth. Show more Show less

What does Mormonism teach regarding baptism?

Gary
By entering the waters of baptism we become clean in heart and mind, we are born again. It is a symbol of our faith and our commitment to become more like Him. We offer ourselves to Him, we turn our will and our lives over to Him so that we can be made pure and return to Him someday. It is only through Him that we are saved. Baptism is a sacred ordinance that we make in order to become members of the Church. Show more Show less
