Hi I'm Gage McGary

From Highland, Utah, I love Boating, Family, Having fun and serving a mission in THE California Irvine Mission! I'm a Mormon!

About Me

My name is Gage and I am 19 years old. (I WAS one of those 18 year Missionaries, not anymore;) I live in Highland, Utah and love it! I have just recently graduated from high school! I am a certified Pharmacy technician and I wrestled in high school. I love my family and spending time with them and hanging out with friends! I love to Boat, Snowboard, and doing anything outside! I love being Happy, Crazy, and Smiling! I'm a Mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Church. I got baptized when I was Eight years old. I believed the church was true but I was riding on my parents' Testimonies. I didn't KNOW for myself that It was true until I was about 16. I went on a ward activity that all the boys my age go on called "Helaman's Camp". We had an experience which was called "The Mountain of the Lord". We went to different stations and we were given different situations of things where we could mess up and sin. We picked a peice of paper and that was what we "chose" to do. For every "sin" we committed we had to pick up a rock that was big and awkward shaped. We started walking up a rocky hill with our rocks and it was hard! We all got to the top and the leaders told us to go put our rocks down somewhere. We all dispursed and went to go put our rocks down by ourselves. I went to go put my rock down and looked at the rocky hill and saw rocks scattered all across the hill. I knew at that moment that the lord has taken all of our rocks and we have to repent and LET him take them. I know when we mess up we are able to become clean again! He has performed the Atonement for us and all we have to do now is use it! When we mess up, Heavenly Father is there waiting for us. Nothing we have done or will ever do will ever seperate us from the love that our Father in Heaven has for us! All He wants is all of us to come back to him. I am a Mormon because I have felt the Cleansing power of the Atonement and I know he has taken my rocks!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to be an example to everyone around me. I have seen how much an example can change others' lives. I also strive to serve others' daily. There are people all around us that somedays just need a pick me up. Look around you! There are others all over the world that are needing someone that will reach out a hand and pick them up. I am currently in Irvine, California serving a mission for two years. I will not stop until I am absolutely exhausted! I will not! I know what my Father in Heaven expects of me. I will Rise up, run fast, and not quit until the Lord calls me home! We don't have much time. Every day is a chance to lift someone and help them come unto Jesus Christ! I love that I have the opportunity to be a Missionary and will not take it for granted! I know with every fiber of my being that this Church is true and I will continue to stand up and share it!
