Hi I'm Garth

I'm a Mormon. I

About Me

Born in a small town in Utah I grew up working on a family farm milking cows every morning before heading off for school. Being a dairy farmer was never going to be what I wanted to do with my life so I attended a trade school to learn the machinist trade. After working shift work for many years I decided I still need more education so I attend college and got a degree as a manufacturing engineer. Employment took me to the state of Washington where after a few months my family was established here and we have never been able to leave. I spend most of my free time doing family and church activities but try to get out golfing as much as possible but have realized that I will never be great at it but still love doing it.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saint but have made my own decision to follow the churches teachings. I believe the church to be true with all my heart but with the joy the gospel bring to my family I would follow it teaching and principles even without this knowledge. However, I have seen the blessing and miracles of the Savior in my life and couldn't deny the truthfulness of the church.

How I live my faith

I have served in the church in many capcities including being a bishop in our ward. I have seen the joy that comes to people who dedicate thier lives to the savior and who are willing to serve others. I work directly with the youth in our area and can see how having the gospel of christ in thier lives help them avoid so many of the problems others youth have who don't have the gospel. I have the opportunity to work with everyone in our congregation and ask member to serve in different capacities in our congreation and see the joy and blessing that come by serving the lord. The gospel of Jesus is where I and my family is finding true happiness in our lives.
