Hi I'm Gavin

I was Born in England. Raised in Trinidad. I work in Customer Service. Love art. I'm a husband and father. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love art. Really put a lot of effort into it in my teenage years and used it to pay the bills as an adult. I love customer service because I love people. Been married for 19 years. Have 2 children.

Why I am a Mormon

I had a lot of questions growing up. Although my family were members for a long time I felt that the difficulties of life sometimes made me ask the question "what on earth is going on here?" I found answers through reading the Bible and the Book of Mormon. In my case I suffered with clinical depression and the only lasting solution has been making the connection between The Atonement of Christ and my illness. The one verse that made the difference for me is found in the Book of Mormon which says "... press forward ... in Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope, and a love of God and of all men." I needed that perfect brightness of hope, so sought it and I found it. I believe that there is a real connection between us and God. He is real, the Gospel is true, and I believe the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ and his goodness.

How I live my faith

I am presently a volunteer leader of one of the churches in England. I get to visit many of the members, play with the youth, teach, and on occasion help members find solutions to problems in their life. I try to be there for my neighbours. I try to make people feel important.
