Hi I'm Dale Garner

I love the pease that the church has brought into my life, I walked away from God once and will never do it agian.

About Me

When I was 12 years old I decided that going to church was not for me and stopped going. When I was 24 years old married with 2 little girls, happy and doing great. I joyed drinking a little , liked my daily marajuana. We went camping just about every weekend, life was great. Then one day two missionaries came to my door when I was not there there to run them off again. My wife, not a member excepted everything fast and was baptized. What did the church offer me? Take my wife away one day of the weekend , made camping heard. And they offered to take 10 percent of my income, wow thanks sign me up. I could not, and would no want to stop my wife from getting closer to her Father in heaven. I finally started going back to church due to her and several loving friends. The warmth of Christ started to penetrate and a long dormant feeling about my Heavenly Father started to return . As I began to serve and get closer to God I began to realize how much I had missed. The joy and peace I have had in my life because of those two young men and loving friends is priceless . Was the journey back easy, no. I am a stubborn person and fought change of what I thought was a wonderful life. But the blessing to me and my family these thirty five years later, I have been blessed beyond measure .

Why I am a Mormon

I cannot imagine going through this life without God in my life . The comfort and pease surpass anything the world can offer. The world pulls at us to fallow after its it tells us what is the perfect life. God needs us to rise up and be better and when we do He strengthens us to continue forward.

How I live my faith

Am I perfect ow heavens no. I am my worst enemy. I decide after returning to church that I would go and do that which The Lord commanded and to trust in Him. I have served with the youth, scouts, I love to serve my fellow man. My basic personality is to be alone with my family. God has showed me the all of His children are my family. God has given me a love for my fellow man that i never thought possible. I was humbled years ago The Lord called me, the least of any of the great men I was surrounded by, to serve a a bishop. I was floored, how could this be, I had turned my back on Him at one point. He new all my sins that I had committed, there was nothing I had done that He did not know. And He wanted me to serve as bishop, surly there was someone more worthy. I have learned that God just wants a willing heart and He will do the rest. The gospel is true and it can change lives and bring peace into any life. Test if with full heart and energy any you will see.
