Hi I'm Gary

I'm a son. I'm a husband. I'm a father. I like astronomy. I like ancient history. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born, I was raised Lutheran. I went to school like everybody else. I love astronomy, it is my greatest hobby. I also love gaining all knowledge I can from books. All sorts of books, especially written by inspired men.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I read a book "A Marvelous Work and a Wonder". When I read that book I gained a testimony that Joseph Smith was a true prophet. From then on everything else fell into place. The things I learned from that book were things I already believed from my own study, and I knew that this church was truly the one God wanted me in, because it was His church. The things I learn in church are applied so well to my life, and I love to be continually learning new things about doctrines and what the scriptures mean. We can never stop learning in this life, and I have learned so much by being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I believe technology in the universe is real. The Lord is a master engineer of space. He built this planet like we would build a building. I can see his beautiful handiwork all around me!

How I live my faith

I am assigned to work in a place called the Bishop's Storehouse, where I help distribute needed household items to those who are in need of them. It is an assignment I do as a volunteer, and I love knowing that I am helping administer food and other items to those who for some reason or another need them, be it a lost job, a lost spouse, or just a slump in life. I live my faith by constantly studying the words in the scriptures and of living prophets and apostles today. I love sharing the knowledge I gain with those around me. I live my faith by helping those around me, if someone needs a place to stay, my basement is open to them, my food is theirs. I live my faith every day by living the things I learn, and not just knowing them in my mind.
