Hi I'm Gary

I'm a Mormon. I was born to a Mormon family.

About Me

I am the proud father of six sons and the grandfather of fourteen grandchildren. I have been married to my sweetheart for over forty six years. I love taking my sons and grandsons and granddaughters fishing in the Rocky Mountains, and my favorite passtime is reading. We have a very close family and genuinely enjoy each others company.

Why I am a Mormon

Like many members of this church I took the challenge in James 1:5-6 and discovered for myself that Jesus is the Christ, Joseph Smith was a Prophet, and that the gospel is true. Like most of us I have been on a steady path of spiritual growth and activity for myself and on behalf of my family and my fellow men. My prayers have been a great comfort because they put me in touch with my God. The Church teaches me, among other things, that I am not alone and can rely on my Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

Prayer to start and end the day and as needed during the day helps me to be ready and able to serve. As an older man I am part of a group of older men in the church and my calling is to serve by directing our activities on behalf of church members and as needed for non-church members as well. The people I work with know that I am a member of The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-day Saints and respect my beliefs.
