Hi I'm Garrett Pearson!!

I am intense about pasta, trombone, and Zelda! I serve Christ as missionary in Sweden! I'm a dang Mormon!

About Me

I'm from Southern Utah. I'm two and one-half years into a degree in music education, but I think I might grab a second major in social work! My family is a little stressful, and we put the funk in dysfunctional, but we share a whole heap of love regardless of that! I like music, longboarding, talking with people, and just having a good time! I also really like exclamation marks....!

Why I am a Mormon

I was lost. Christ found me. I'm not perfect. Far from it! I do a lot of stupid things and make a lot of stupid choices in my life. But I'm trying. Boy howdy, am I trying every single day! This Gospel as restored in this Church is what has saved me and continues to! The Gospel of Christ is a quiet mind. It's a clear conscience. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the best way to live Christ's Gospel. Our church is a place to help make bad people good, and good people better. I invite you to come and learn about it all!

How I live my faith

Life is not easy; sometimes it's downright miserable. I make my life better by just living my faith! I do this most by repetitively and constantly repenting, and by striving to live just a little more like Christ each day. The best way for me to be more like Christ right now is by serving a full-time mission. In this mission I invite and help others come unto Christ through the teachings of his Gospel! It's the coolest! You should learn about Him with me!

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Garrett Pearson!!
The Atonement is difficult to put into words. More difficult becuase although it covers every person that ever lived, it's also the most personal thing we have in this existence. Rather than try to totally explain it, here are some short thoughts: The Gospel of Jesus Christ requires us to become a better person, rather than just do better things. The Atonement is the divine means by which we change and become a better person. A more Christlike person even. Because Christ literally suffered all we have, from our sins to our stubbed toes (2 Nephi 9:21), we can cast our burdens upon him. He has taken them. He can pull us out of wherever we have gone. Because all (with the exception of Christ) have fallen short of being perfect (Romans 3:23), we all must pay our debt to Justice. But becuase Christ was perfect, justice "owes Christ favors." We can call upon Christ, and he will pay our debt to justice, as long as we follow him (John 10:27-28). Show more Show less

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Garrett Pearson!!
I suppose every missionary serves for a different reason. I found the greatest gift ever. The gift is infinite and only grows when it's given out. I want everybody to have some! Show more Show less
