Hi I'm Gary

I'm a teacher.

About Me

I enjoy the great outdoors, camping, fishing, hunting. I am happily married with one daughter. I teach at a private trades college, which I enjoy passing my experience on to new people who want to learn.

Why I am a Mormon

I became a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints back in 2004,after missionaries visited my family for almost 9 years,we finally sat down and heard about the restored gospel and the Book of Mormon.The discussion started in early April and we were baptized,all of my family,in June. I learned so much about the plan of salvation that God has for all his children here upon earth.A year later we visited and made other covenants in the Salt Lake Temple so we can be a forever family,and for my marriage which can be for all time and eternity, I learned so much about temples and eternal principles and how this can bring joy to everyone who goes into the Houses of the Lord (temples). Even though we still have challenges within our lives we still hold tight to the restored gospel and serve to the best of our abilities. My wife and I overcome many of lifes curve balls and still know there are many to come to, this is our refining process and there is much joy knowing that this is where we do grow and be tested here on earth, just some a little more than others, nevertheless they are all overcome with faith.I was ordained into the priesthood and through this great privilege have blessed many, whether a blessing of peace or someone who is sick or afflicted with some ailment the power of the priesthood have changed the lives of many. Through the priesthood, blessed and dictated homes and final resting places. As well baptized and preformed marriages between loves ones. I had a special blessing myself called a Patriarchal Blessing which is one only for me and my life from Heavenly Father.The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has brought many blessing to myself and others, when you see missionaries from our church say hello whether you invite them in to you lives like we did or ask a question about the church you will find a spirit that will enter you heart and leave you with the knowledge that you are a child of God, and Jesus is the Christ.

How I live my faith

I am quite busy within the branch that I belong to within the church. I enjoy talking to people to help them learn about the plan of happiness, and how they too can receive the full blessing of the gospel. I attended and been in a few temples in Canada and U.S. .The temples are wonderful houses of the Lord where members can learn more about the eternal plan God has for his children. I organize with the help of other members many activities for both people within the community and the branch members, from everything from, movie nights, family fun-days, emergency preparedness , food storage and a great Nativity display which is one of the biggest in Atlantic Canada, here is a link to have a quick look, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ysbqZm1ruxQ
