Hi I'm Gary L Johnson

I am a mortgage broker, I live in Salt Lake city, Utah with my wife and children and quite a few grandchildren,and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father of seven, I love electronics, love to read books, and most of all, I love to travel. I have traveled quite a bit in Europe, Hawaii, and the Western States. I have traveled through the Church History sites.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Church, and had faithful parents who taught me about the church, but there came a time when I had to know for myself. I was seriously considering going on a mission for my church. This mission is for two full years, so if I was going out to tell me about the Mormon Church, I had better know it was true. I read the Book of Mormon again, and this time with real intent, and I received a spiritual witness that it was true,, that Joseph Smith in actuality did see the Father and the Son, Joseph Smith was instrumental in restoring the true gospel with authority from ancient apostles, and it is upon the earth today in the form of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. (The Mormons). I challenge you to find out for your self, and listen to the missionaries.

How I live my faith

I try to serve others by taking on assignments in my LDS ward. I am currently serving in the Sunday school. I love to teach, and take advantage whenever I can. I am a good home teacher, and meet with my people once a month to give them a lesson and encourage them in their devotions.

What is the First Vision?

This was such an incredible event. For the first time in hundreds of years, the Lord had opened the heavens and spoke to man. It was the most important event in centuries. Show more Show less
