Hi I'm Gary,

I am a husband, father and grandfather.I am a convert to the church.

About Me

My wife and I have a blended family of 5 children and 5 grandchildren. I am retired from the military and also a State retiree.I have been a professional horseshoe pitcher for the past 29 years. I've played Baseball, Softball and Basketball since I was 4 years old.

Why I am a Mormon

I truly enjoy studying the Gospel. God has blessed me so much and I am so grateful to him. My wife was very instrumental in my conversion to the church. I thank God for her influence on me. I was a Baptist for 66 years. I let some missionaries teach me, and I read and prayed about the Book of Mormon and was baptized 3 months later. Now I have a testimony of the Gospel and the Book of Mormon. I also have the rest of the story. Oh, I've made many mistakes, but have repented of them. Being a Mormon is truly a way of life.

How I live my faith

I am our Ward Mission Leader and a Home Teacher. It really is such a joy to serve in the church. My wife and I regularly attend the Temple. We frequently volunteer at the cannery and occasionally have ward assignment at the Temple.
