Hi I'm Garrett Burbidge

I consider myself a pretty normal guy and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

One wife, four kids, 6 chickens. I like playing all sports, not into watching them. I like playing guitar. I like rain because in Fresno it means snow in the mountains. I love all activities that have downhill or jumping in their descriptions.

Why I am a Mormon

I know the church is true. I know that Heavenly Father lives and watches over us. He has a plan, and I know that the better I follow that plan, the happier I will be. I'm not perfect, I need help every day. If I were on my own, I know I'd have a harder time doing what's right. I know I'm not on my own. Jesus Christ died for my sins. He paid for my sins so I can repent and be forgiven. I'm grateful for this most of all.

How I live my faith

I attend church each week with my family. It's a blessing to know that it's not just my wife and I helping my kids understand the Lord's plan. We spend time every Sunday talking about what we learned and how we can do better. We start each day with family scripture study and prayer. It helps us get up and get going on the right foot. It brings us together to go out and face the world - the challenges, disappointments, success, etc.
