Hi I'm Garrett

Born in California, grew up in Utah, served a mission in Washington. I'm a Mormon

About Me

 I just finished a 2 year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Everett Washington. I am a huge fan of music and movies somewhat. Starting school this fall/winter. I just love being outdoors wether it's basketball, football, or just biking around.

Why I am a Mormon

 I'm a Mormon because this church is true. I know serving a 2 year mission just solidified that I know this is Christ's true church. Seeing it change the lives of others and how as they follow the principles in this gospel they can see miracles in their live and also their families lives too. I felt the spirit so strong in my life and seen in touch the lives of others. Miracles and blessings come from being a member and following all of Christ's teachings

How I live my faith

 How I live my faith is still being a missionary.I did it full-time for 2 years but now I can be a member missionary which rocks too!! I also do my best to be an example to all those around me.

Who was Joseph Smith?

Garrett
 Joseph Smith was a young boy in 1820 who was curious to know what church was right. He attended many church's and felt like something was missing.They had some truth but not all of it. He wanted to know what to do so he read in the Bible in James 15 that says "If any of ye lack wisdom let him ask of God,that giveth to all men liberally,and ubraideth not and it shall be given him." So Joseph lacked the wisdom to know what to do so he decided to go to a nearby grove to ask God his humble question. He said in his own words "I saw a pillar of light exactly over my head, above the brightness of the sun, which descended gradually until it fell upon me, When the light rested upon me I saw two Personages, whose brightness and glory defy all description, standing above me in the air. One of them spake unto me, calling me by name and said, pointing to the other-This is My Beloved Son. Hear Him!” Joseph saw God the Father and Jesus Christ appear to him and told him to join none of the church's. That because after Christ and his apostles died that true church,foundation and authority was lost but through him all of the was restored in its fullness to never leave the earth again.
