Hi I'm Garrett

I'm a college student. I love life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a son, youngest brother of 4, and an uncle. I love my family so much! I enjoy going on random adventures and just having fun. Some of my hobbies are movie making, hanging out with friends and being involved with my community.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and always tried to follow what my parents taught me. During high school I realized I would be on my own soon and making my own decisions. For a semester of high school I lived in Washington DC and was surrounded by others not of my faith. Having more independence I had to sincerely understand for myself if this is what I believed. Continuing to live the morals and values I was raised with, I realized how great the blessings of the gospel are in my life. As I read the Bible and Book of Mormon it gives me strength to get through each day no matter how difficult the circumstances. For two years as a missionary, I shared my beliefs with others. It was a difficult time for me, but I have never felt so happy! I saw first hand how Christ's gospel blesses the lives of individuals and families. With all my experiences I have come to know for myself that this church is true. I know without a doubt that we have a Heavenly Father who loves and watches over us all. No matter what we've done in life, He is there to help us so we can have happiness in this life and return to live with him someday. I believe that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is Christ's Church once again established on the Earth today. This truth and knowledge in my life is a blessing I am most grateful for! Living and continuing to learn more about the gospel each day brings me great joy and hope––I couldn't live without it!

How I live my faith

As I go through each day, I look for opportunities to help others and try my best to follow the example Jesus Christ set for us all. Life can be difficult and prayer helps me a lot. I know our Heavenly Father loves each of us and wants us to be happy, when we ask Him, I know he will help us! Reading scriptures and following the council of prophets has also provided me with great direction in life and a lot of happiness. I am far from perfect, but I simply just try my best knowing that my Heavenly Father will help me along the way.
