Hi I'm Gale B. Wrigley

I grew up in Idaho. I was a Scout leader for 27 years. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised on a farm in Idaho. We raised crops, sheep, and cattle. I enjoy fishing and hunting. I have 3 sons and 4 daughters and have been blessed with 17 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I was always active, attending Primary, Sunday School, and Sacrament Meetings. I loved learning the Book of Mormon stories and the gospel. My testimony of the gospel grew as I advanced in my callings in the Church and I studied the Scriptures. Each new calling taught me more and strengthened me. I have been blessed in my life surviving several accidents that could have taken my life. I knew I was needed to fill some special purpose in this life. My testimony continues to grow of the truthfulness of the gospel. My new calling is to serve a mission for the church. I know this church is true. That Jesus is the Christ and that Joseph Smith is a true Prophet.

How I live my faith

I was born and raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I was baptized at age 8. My family was active in the church while I was growing up. I have been a hometeacher for most of my life and love and appreciate the families that I worked with. I have had other callings in the church that have helped me gain a testimony of the truthfulness of the gospel. I was a member of the Boy Scouts of America. I have worked in Cub Scouts, in the Scout Troop, and as a councilor for the Scout District. I am Woodbadge trained and worked at the Scout Council trainings. I have received the Award of Merit for my work. My wife and I were also awarded the Couple of the Year for our work in Scouting.
