Hi I'm Gary

I live in the western US. I'm a state trooper and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married and have 3 sons. I like the outdoors and I especially like to cut wood for our stove. I like to read and more than anything I like to spend time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

Heavenly Father loves His children and because he does, He gave us the opportunity to learn and grow by creating this world for us through His son Jesus Christ. He allowed us to come to this world to gain the experiences we need to progress through eternity. I love Heavenly Father and His son Jesus Christ. I'm a Mormon because the priesthood and all of the things we need to know are found in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. God has chosen a prophet to lead His church and that prophet is at the head of this church. It comforts me to know that following a prophet of God will allow me to return to live with my Heavenly Father someday.

How I live my faith

I am not perfect by any means, but I try to live my faith mostly by serving others. I believe a big part of God's plan for us is to test us by seeing how we treat each other. I believe we are all brothers and sisters since we are all children of God, and the way we treat our brothers and sisters will determine in large part our reward in the next life. There are other things the Lord has commanded us to do, and if we do our best to serve our neighbors, for the most part I think we will keep those other commandments.
