Hi I'm Garret

I am from Snowflake Arizona, I all-stared in football and I am a Mormon.

About Me

My name is garret but i am commonly known as bear. I have three sisters, one brother, one dog, and two loving parents. I am an athlete who likes to play football, baseball, run track, wrestle, and freeride motocross. The sport i put most my time in effort in is football. My sophmore year i was 165 pounds and my coaches put me on the defensive line (moslty as an experiement). Well apparently i was good, cause i started there ever since. My senior year at 185 pounds (still light for a varsily lineman) i got first team all state and first team all-star for the all star game. Now i am on a two year mission and when I return I intend to play football in college.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because it truelly makes happy. This gospel centered around christ which is how it is suppose to be. I know that i can be with my family forever and that gives me much peace and joy. I love my family, they help me develop christ like attributes and i want nothing more then to be with them forever. I was raised LDS but that is not the reason i am a mormon. I have developed my own testimony of this gospel through much prayer and reading of the Bible and Book of Mormon. I know my heavenly father loves me and knows me more then i know me and wants nothing more then me to be happy.

How I live my faith

I attend my church meetings on sundays to learn more about christ and his teachings. I aslo go to service projects with other people from the church in the community for people in need. I set a good example to other people around me by being respectful to others and doing simple acts of kindness. As of right now, I am serving a mission to help people to come closer with christ and have a better relationship with their father in heaven.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Garret
No not all mormons are required to surve a mission. Young men who live worthy are expected to go at the age of 18 or 19. Woman have to option to go at the age of 19 but are not required to go. It is always a personal choice whether to go or not. no one will force you to go. Older couples who have the time and means to go are also welcome to serve a mission and serve the lord.
