Hi I'm Charlie Garcia

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a Husband of a wonderful wife. A Father of 4 great kids and Grandfather of 7 wonderful grandchildren ... My hobbies are building TV and Movie Robot replicas and taking then to various events and showing them off. Not only is it a lot of fun but I get to meet a lot of really interesting people including TV and movie celebrities!

Why I am a Mormon

In reflecting back over my life I've found that when comparing my life at the times I was inactive with the times I was active that I was more happy and fulfilled when I was active in the church. Let me explain...When I was inactive I was with people that weren't Mormon and I just wasn't happy or fullfilled doing what I was doing. Something was missing! The firends I had were not the kind you could trust and were always condeming the church. When I reflected on those times I was active...I had friends I could count on and that were always there if I needed them. People who genuinely cared about me. That didn't happen with my other so called friends, they were too leaky a vessel to put much faith or trust in.

How I live my faith

I have served in various capcities in the Church but never have I been so moved, humbled and fulfilled as I have teaching the 4 and 5 year olds about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I sometimes feel they are teaching me more than I am teaching them. The raw love that they show and the things that excite and motivate them are truely amazing. Sometimes I am so moved not only by what they say but in how they say it...that makes it hard to speak sometimes. They have such a profound love and conviction in Jesus Christ that tends to melt my heart and shows me what real Christ Like love is like.
