Hi I'm Gavin

I have the love of my life at my side and a little bundle of joy on her way. I am curious, adventurous, and love people.

About Me

I have always enjoyed the outdoors. I love hiking, camping, exploring, rock climbing, 4-wheeling and travelling. I had a great supportive family while growing up and feel that I have the absolute BEST family now... currently it is me and my wife (newlyweds at 3 years) and we have our first baby girl on the way. So excited to be a Dad. I am a people person by nature and love to talk and hear people's thoughts and beliefs. I served a mission with the people of South Africa and would call many of them family as well. I graduated from a University close to home, majoring in Behavioral Science and Health. I now am working in a job that I enjoy, financial planning.

Why I am a Mormon

I have felt of Heavenly Fathers love since I was young. He has chosen to bless my life in so many ways, many of which I can not even comprehend. The associations, doctrines and values that I have learned since youth, and continue to learn today, have served me in all facets of my life. I don't know where I would be without the gospel of Jesus Christ in my life. I am more happy and fulfilled as I follow the true teachings of Christ. The LDS church has taught me how to communicate with my Savior and how to be a best person I can be. For that I am truly grateful and will forever be in debt to Him. I hope that I may be able to repay some small part of His mercy by helping my fellow brothers and sisters around me. I love the Lord with all of my heart and being.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being open and accepting of anyone in any walk of life. Christ taught his followers to not judge and I try to live by that teaching. My example of acceptance can be of help to someone who is struggling. I always try to give of my time and talents to those around me. I look for opportunities to help. I am currently helping teach the 10-11 year old boys in our church. They are rambunctious, fun and have a desire to be better people. I am a Christian by trying to be friendly to all those that I meet.
