Hi I'm Zachary Howard Garrard

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I really enjoy playing basketball, it is my favorite thing to do.Soccer is something else i enjoy but basketball is better. I am currently working at a local grocery store. I like to listen to music a lot, I like to listen to all kinds of music. One thing that I really like are long drives, I love to drive while listening to music.

Why I am a Mormon

Both of my parents are Mormon so I just kind of grew up in this church. I am really happy that i was too, it has helped me throughout my life. Although I grew up in this church it wasn't until last year that i was truly converted to this church. One day I thought to myself "do I really believe that this church is true"? So one night I got down on my knees and prayed. I asked Heavenly Father if this church was true, then I began to read the Book of Mormon. In the middle of reading the scriptures I was prompted just to pray again so I did. I got down on my knees and began to pray to God asking if this church is true. After that I started to read the Book of Mormon again. While I was reading the second time a feeling overcame my body and it was such a great feeling that I couldn't help but cry. I will never forget that moment, that was the moment i knew that this was the true church of God.

How I live my faith

I try to do as much service that I can such as yard work and shoveling snow. My ward will find those that need help and we will go help them as much as we can. Recently someone needed help roofing their house so a bunch of us got together and we helped them roof their house. I really like to serve and help people out with things like that. It makes me happy knowing that I was able to help someone with work or a problem they may have.
