Hi I'm Archi Gardner

I am a small business owner, repairing homes. I am a big football fan. I am a husband and father. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a big fan of football, and yes I am a Denver Broncos fan. I am a father of three talented children. They are my life. Being a parent is a joy and at times very challenging. I have a small business that takes me away from my wife and kids more then I would like but we are very blessed to have work in this day. I was born in Colorado, at the age of 7 moved to Sacramento California. Lived there for ten years and that is where my childhood memories where made. Playing youth soccer for 12 years, scout camps, and basketball. At the age of 17 my parents moved us to West Jordan Utah where I finished High School. I am the youngest boy in my family. I have 3 sisters and 2 brothers. I love them all. In the child line up I am number four having 2 younger sisters.

Why I am a Mormon

You may be wondering if I have been a Mormon my whole life........and yes, my parents were Mormons when I was born. BUT that really doesn't mean that its a giving that I would believe or have perfect faith that this is what life is about. I give thanks to my Heavenly Father that I was given the opportunity to be born to Mormon parents. What I am getting at is that there came a time in my life that I had to find out if what my parents had been teaching me was true, what all my primary teachers and leaders were teaching me was true, what I had been reading in the Book of Mormon was true. There is only one way to find out truth, only one. I had to get on my knees and pray, ask my Heavenly Father if what I was learning was true, if the Book of Mormon was true.....by the feelings of love, warmth, a feeling of confidence I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior, that the Book of Mormon is truly a second witness of Christ's Gospel, a companion to the Bible, it is all true. It is because of this knowledge that I have gained through the Spirit of the Almighty God, that drives me to share these wonderful truths, to share my personal experiences of faith. The world as we know it is not getting better. We all need the Gospel of Jesus Christ as a pillar in our life.

How I live my faith

In my local ward/congregation I work with the local missionaries. Teaching individuals that are interested in learning about our religion/beliefs. This is not a paid job. It is a service job in any given ward. I have a deep passion when it comes to sharing the Gospel with others, sharing my personal experiences or feelings of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and what it means to me. One of the most important parts of life is to live by the teachings of the Gospel daily, because that is what the Savior did. He asks us to fallow in his foot steps. I will be the first to tell you that I am not perfect at it, but it is my sincere desire to do my best and lead my wife and children in that same way the Savior lived his life.
