Hi I'm Cole Gardner

I'm a missionary in Western Australia, I love the Lord, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I grew up faithfully a Mormon. I enjoy food, and I miss Taco Bell and Mexican food. I love sports, including basketball, volleyball, and ping pong! I like to think that I play ping pong competitively. I'm a student at Brigham Young University in Provo, UT. I'm in the middle of a full-time mission in Perth, Australia, sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with many people. I'm the youngest of four children and have two amazing parents. My family has always been the most important thing to me, and always will be. Life is good.

Why I am a Mormon

I've chosen to be a member of this church because I have prayed and have felt in my heart that these teachings were true. The Holy Ghost has manifested to me in my heart that Joseph Smith saw God and Jesus Christ, that the Book of Mormon is the most correct book of any book on the earth, and that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is God's restored church on the earth. Jesus Christ is my Savior and Redeemer, and it's only through His Atonement that we can feel peaceful and forgiven of our sins.

How I live my faith

I'm far from perfect, but definitely doing my best to live how Christ would want me to. Sometimes life will just smack you in the face, but with Christ helping you on the way, anything is possible to overcome. I love this Gospel and the true joy that it brings.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Pray!! Pride often gets in the way and people don't think that they need to ask God. I can promise you that if you get on your knees and sincerely ask Heavenly Father if what you are learning is true, then he will answer you through the Spirit in your heart. I promise :) Show more Show less
