Hi I'm Garet Barney

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Financial Analyst. But more importantly, I am the proud father of 4 fantastic childrand have been happily married for 10 wonderful years. I love going camping and exploring nature with my family. I enjoy spending time with my kids and helping them to develop their talents and self confidence. I also love playing fantasy football. I am the league commisioner of a fantasy football league and have a ball running the league each year!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a member of the church, was baptised when I was 8, and I loved the way I felt at church each week. However, when I was about 17 years old I decided that I wanted to know for myself that the church was true. It was then that I read the book of Mormon, prayed about its truthfulness and had it confirmed in my heart and mind that it was indeed true. I later served a Spanish speaking mission in New York, New York, and absolutely loved every minute of it. It was hard work, but the things I learned on my mission were so important to me and have helped me to become a much better person. I saw so many lives change while on my mission, and saw so many people become so happy and full of joy. I am so thankful for all the blessings that God has given me.

How I live my faith

I am the President of the boy's youth organization in my Ward, and part of those responsibilities involves Boy Scouts. I am Boy Scout leader and spiritual advisor to the boys in my Ward. Working with the youth is a great challenge, but the rewards are amazing. I love seeing the youth learn and grow, and develop into good wholesome young adults. We enjoy doing service projects and camping, as well as visiting the poor and needy people of our Ward as well.
