Hi I'm Garth

I was born and raised in Pleasant Grove, Utah and desire to share the gospel of Christ. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I am a 19 year old boy attending my second year of college. There are many challenges that come through this and many new opportunities. Learning how to balance school, work, and social life as well as determining what I want to do and be are always on my mind. I enjoy soccer, basketball, watching movies, being with friends and just talking. I'm unsure of many things and have trouble trusting peoples intents and sincerity.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church. In many ways this is a blessing, but it can also be slightly problematic. Many people who are raised in the church take the blessings that come with being a member for granted and fail to understand the blessings because they have never known any other way. I do not want to see live any other way. There are many things that I am unsure of, but everything that I do know of with a perfect knowledge stems from the church. I have never strayed majorly from the path of righteous because I truly care about myself and others. I would like to believe that I would be just as kind and loving person even if I did not know the truth of this gospel. The gospel supports my desires to help others and do good. Everything about it gives me a sense of purpose and a desire to share with others. At times it is difficult to understand everything but I can always go back to those moments where I have felt Christ's love for me and know that this is what He wants me to be doing. I know that this church is true and I want all to know this as well.

How I live my faith

I am a special needs assistant teacher in the church that I attend. I assist a neighborhood boy in attending his classes. I am preparing to serve a mission for the church in the next couple of months and am very excited. I try to do everything I can to be more like Christ and help others to do the same.
