Hi I'm Gary

I love travel, sports, and cooking. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I got my degree in Geography and was a travel agent. The future of that industry is is bleak, so tried GIS (Geographic information Systems). That didn't pan out, yet. In the mean time I do computer aided drafting.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to a mormon family. In fact, I am a sixth generation mormon on both sides of my family. I still needed to know for myself if this whole thing was a farse or not. I set out at age 17 to find out for myself. I realized that the key we the Book of Mormon. If it is true, then the story associated with it must also be true. I read the book, and prayed to get an answer. Nothing happened. I then realized tha, for me, I needed to come to a conclusion, and then ask for a yes or no answer. Such as, I feel that this is correct. Am I right? I did get an answer. It was true. It wasn't earth shattering, just a feeling or sensation. However, as time has gone on, little by little, that feeling has grown, from experiences and confirmations, that greatly confirm that original confirmation. Because of that confirmation, I have found purpose and meaning that make life much more enjoyable. It may seem that the mormon lifestyle is restrictive and limiting. But, like a child that looks for boundries and guidelines, these "standards" allows freedom from many things that I never have to worry about. Quitting smoking, Alcoholism, and many other things that the standards of the church, if followed, protect us from.

How I live my faith

The church give many chances to serve other. I have been associated with Cub Scouts for over 18 years. The church is the largest sponsor of scouting in the United States. I now work with the San Tan District helping to train other leaders. of which about 90 percent are other mormons with the same goals as me in helping the scouting movement and church help the youth in this area.
