Hi I'm Lynn

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a happily married man for 35 years, father of 4 children. 2 boys & 2 girls, grandfather to 10. 8 beautiful sweet girls & 2 handsome strong boys. I have been a farmer, rancher, custom farmer, EMT, Skipatrol 10 years, owned Elite Medical Services Inc for 15 years, Real Estate consultant/broker 5 years. As you can see I have a rich background. My father taught me "you can do whatever you set your mind to do." I have found that to be true in the things I have focused my efforts to accomplish. I love the outdoors, spending time with my family, and the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

My family joined the church in the time of Joseph Smith. The Garner family has a tradition of faith. While being born to the church was a great blessing. I had to gain a personal testimony of Jesus Christ and the church. When I was about 14 I had a deep desire to know if the things I had been tought were really true. I gained a personal whitness that the church is truely God's church through the simple process of reading the Book of Mormon and sincerely praying to know the truth of it. It didn't come easily but after many nights of reading and prayer I received the warm feeling from the Holy Ghost that the things I was studying were from God. I determined to try to live the gospel for the rest of my life and it has been a great blessing to me. I served as a missionary in the Nagoya Japan mission for two years and after returninng home found a woman of faith to share my life with. The decision to be faithful and live the gospel has blessed all of us with peace in this world where everything seems to be changing.

How I live my faith

To me living my faith means to be of service to others. I have strived to serve other in my church family and the community. Over the years I have been a volunteer fireman, EMT and volunteer Senior Skipatrol for over 10 years at Mt Spokane and a Farm Bureau representative . In the ward I attend I have had many "callings". You would call them jobs but since we don't choose what type of service we do and are called by someone in authority to serve as teachers, counsellors, advisors, cleaners etc. in Primary, Sunday School, Adult and Young Adult programs. The service helps others and always makes me feel better. Teaching in the various classes is a great way to learn since the teacher always learns more than his students.
