Hi I'm Gary

I was born and raised in a wonderful family who were members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the father of 5 wonderful adult children and the president of a large company. When I'm not working, I fill my time with running, cycling, gardening, teaching seminary, and spending time with my wife of 34 years.

Why I am a Mormon

I have a deep and abiding testimony of the restoration of the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ through the prophet Joseph Smith. I love serving in the Church today. I cannot imagine raising my family without the foundation of gospel teachings. The Church provides such great assistance to parents as we try to help our children understand the importance of living their lives the way that our Savior would want them to.

How I live my faith

I am presently teaching early morning seminary, a religion class for high school students, which begins each school morning at 6:00 AM. One of the most fulfilling callings I have been given was the calling of a mission president for 3 years. The opportunity to work with full-time missionaries of all ages, both young and old, and serve alongside my wife, was a marvelous experience.
