Hi I'm Gary

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently in my 4th year of medical school, I also happen to be happily married to a most awesome lady for almost 19 years! I am a proud dad of 5 beautiful and wonderful children. Due to my schooling we have moved quite a bit, my kids have been in 4 different schools in the past 4 years. But they are my biggest supporters along with my wife in this crazy endeavor of medical school and beyond. I enjoy playing the piano, spending time with the family, I really enjoy being a dad and a husband.

Why I am a Mormon

Both of my parents were members of the church and thus I was "born" into the church. But I have had to learn and grow and know for myself about the truthfulness of the gospel and the church. I have had many wonderful experiences and have experienced things that can only be described as miraculous. These have showed me that my Heavenly Father loves me and is aware of me, that I am truly his son and that we are all brothers and sisters!

How I live my faith

I have been in many different positions or callings in the church. With my crazy schedule in med school, I currently am the membership clerk, which entails keeping the records of our ward up to date. But I have loved being a Scoutmaster or youth Sunday school teacher. The most important thing, however, is that I truly strive to live each and every day how Jesus would have me. I seek to have charity, the pure love of Christ, with me and let my thoughts dwell on Him throughout the day. I believe in living the Golden Rule and treat everyone how I wish to be treated. I work hard to have clean and pure thoughts, to speak without swearing, and setting a good example for my family.
