Hi I'm Garrett

I am a professional skier, student, rock climber, and aspiring upper echelon marketing consultant. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a professional skier, rock climber, student, and above all a simple man. I am studying recreational business with aspirations to attend BYU Provo to earn a Master's in Business Administration with marketing emphasis. I work as a Public Relations coordinator for Grand Targhee Resort in Alta, Wyoming, and I love every second of it. Every chance I get, I go outside and enjoy what God has given me to enjoy.

Why I am a Mormon

I love the guidelines that the church has set forth to keep the members safe from the adversary. It is comforting to know that not only does our Heavenly Father know that we all are imperfect, but that we need to learn on our own as well. The church offers a great way to learn and grow in almost every aspect of life, which has helped me to become the person that I am. The church essentially gives me purpose. I know that the church is not only true, I know that it is true simply because I have prayed about it. I know that simply through faith in god we can become converted unto Christ. If you don't believe me, read the Book of Mormon, it will tell you the same thing. I promise that this is the only true church of Christ on this earth.

How I live my faith

Since my return from Costa Rica in June of 2016, I have been living in Rexburg, Idaho. I am constantly surrounded by both people that do, and do not wish to live the standards of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I have the immense decision of how to live my life. I choose to follow the commandments and live a life full of joy and wholesome entertainment. I am in charge of the Home Evening section for my ward, which entails my direction of the separate apartment heads and helping them to lead and guide their apartments in wholesome activity at least once per week.

How do I become a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church)?

Garrett
As a missionary for the church, it was partly my responsibility to help non-members who are commonly referred to as investigators to become members. All that you need to do is ask a missionary. It's fairly easy, they are always in white shirts, and have a very conspicuous name tag that is all black. They will most likely be able to speak your language depending what country you are in. If you are missing something in your life, this is the starting point. I hope you follow the guidance of others as well as me in finding the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Show more Show less

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Garrett
All members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are asked to but are not required to serve a mission. In a general conference statement, it is stated that all worthy young men should serve a mission regardless of financial circumstances. Young women are also asked to serve, but they are not asked to serve in a way the makes the call seem as necessary. Couples are also asked to serve. However, despite the conference addresses, missions are completely voluntary, and thus, everyone who serves is there on their own time, and funds. This means that the mission means not only more for those who serve, but also helps them to come closer to those that they are teaching. Show more Show less
