Hi I'm Garn McMullin

I am a Father, businessman, and hobby farmer. I also am a seventh generation Mormon.

About Me

I love helping things grow. There is something satisfying about working hard, being patient, and then looking upon the results. Foremost, I am a dad. I thrill in counseling, working alongside, encouraging, and watching my children grow and make good choices. Professionally, I help entrepenuers manage and grow their businesses. In my spare time, I am a hobby farmer. In fact, my best thinking is done while sitting on my tractor cutting hay or plowing a field.

Why I am a Mormon

"Being a Mormon" is an action phrase and not a passive title. I attend meetings, serve in the community and in my local congregation, because I love my Savior. Respectfully, I have come to know that the fulness of His doctrine is found in the Mormon Church. Because of this, I am happy. My family is happy.

How I live my faith

My faith teaches that when you are in the service of your fellow beings, you are only in the service of your God. Perhaps this is why several years ago I joined a local service organization. For our local community, we host a demolition derby, a massive easter egg hunt for the kids, and a "turkey shoot" every spring and fall for all those handy with a shotgun. My faith teaches that the family is very important. Accordingly, I try to enlist the support and service of my children at the community service events noted above. They usually have as much, if not more, fun putting these events together as compared to simply being a participant. Whether it is helping with a community event or working on our small farm, we try and do it as a family. We work hard. It keeps us grounded and close together. And then, we play hard. We enjoy soccer, football, golfing, camping, hunting, and fishing. Finally, but certainly not the least, we worship together. We do this by attending church each Sunday (We also poke each other in the ribs if someone falls asleep during a talk or lesson. Isn't that part of being a family as well?) We pray together each night prior to going to bed. At breakfast, we study the scriptures together for a few minutes each day.
