Hi I'm Garth

I grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah. I married Ann and we have three daughters. We raised our family in Colorado.

About Me

I grew up in Salt lake City, Utah. I attended a university where I received Bachelor's, Master's and Doctorate degrees. I have been a professor at two universities and have received emeritus status from both universities. I love to travel with my wife and family. I enjoy reading and photography as hobbies. We have three daughters and twelve grandchildren.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family with a long history in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. As a young person I sought my own testimony through study and faith. I continue to try to be of service because I have received a spiritual witness that the gospel of Jesus Christ is true and that living the principles of the gospel leads to true happiness.

How I live my faith

My wife and I have served one part time service mission and two full time missions for the Church. I have served in many capacities in the Church including that of home teacher and Sunday school teacher. I have served in administrative and support roles in the Church.
