Hi I'm Beau Gardner

I grew up in Arizona, I love soccer, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Right now I am serving a full time mission in the Honolulu Hawaii mission. I grew up loving sports and the outdoors. I'm really into Soccer thats my passion. I've played soccer throughout my whole life and thats one of the things that can make my worries go away. I was part of the the state championship team in 2009 thats definantly one of my highlights. I play guitar, I'm not the best but I'm hoping I'll get a lot better at it. I'm going to college at BYU Idaho. I've completed my freshman year there and I want to have a business degree. I love meeting new people. The more friends the better!

Why I am a Mormon

I've always grown up in the church. My Mom and Dad were always faithful members so I grew up knowing this was the right thing. I feel that throughout the first part of my life I would just go through the motions. I felt like I was just going to church because I had to. This was my outlook about things for the majority of my early years. I really didn't start to gain a testimony until I left home and went to school. Being surrounded by friends who were strong in the church, had strong testimonies, and were all going on missions really motivated me to strive to be better and to be just like them. The experiences that I have had in my lifetime thus far have made me into the person I have become today, and I wouldnt change it for the world. I wanted to know for my myself so I did just that. I read the Book of Mormon and Prayed to Heavenly Father and asked if these things were true and I recieved an answer. The feelings that I felt is something I cant deny. I love this Church and this Gosple. I know without a doubt that it is true and I am so gratful for this opportunity to go and give others the chance to know the truth also. I know that Jesus is the Christ and that God lives and loves each and every one of us.

How I live my faith

I've always been active in the church. Ive been in the quorum presidencies. Right now I'm serving a mission in Hawaii. It is my opportunity to go out and serve the lord and invite others to come unto Christ. This brings me the most joy. There is a difference between pleasure and happiness and sharing the gosple brings me the most happiness.
