Hi I'm Garrett

I love the Outdoors, Playing Video Games, and Speaking Japanese. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I was born and raised in "Happy Valley" Utah and I love anything to do with the outdoors. I'm an avid hiker, snowboarder, camper, mountain biker and swimmer. When I'm forced to stay inside I like watching movies with my family, playing guitar, and playing video games. I'm currently taking a break from these things so I can share my beliefs as a Missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Tokyo Japan!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised a Mormon and it's blessed me my whole life. When I was growing up, going to church was just something I did every Sunday. I went because my parents went. I never questioned it. As I got older I realized that I couldn't ride on my parent's testimony. I needed to know for myself if the things I'd been taught my whole life were really worth following, and if the church was true. My belief didn't come all at once, and I wrestled with doubts for some time, but through reading the Book of Mormon and praying to know if it was true I was able to gain the answer I needed. I know without a doubt that this Church is True. The Lord opens the door to those that knock.

How I live my faith

The center of my Faith is that I know the Lord has a plan for me. I often times have no Idea what that plan is, and quite a few times in my life it hasn't been what I've wanted. God's plan is not always easy but it's ALWAYS better. As a Missionary I now have the opportunity to tell the people of Japan that God loves them and he has a plan for each of them too. It's a wonderful blessing to be able share something I know to be true with others. As I finish my mission, move on in life, and attempt to reach my dreams I can gain strength from knowing the Lord has a plan for me and that it is truly a Plan of Happiness.
