Hi I'm Gerald D Mecham

I was born and raised in Utah. I have been a Mormon all my life.

About Me

I have recently retired. I worked in the coal industry for about 40 years. I have been blessed to have jobs that made me feel successful and happy. I was taught to alway do your best, give 100% every day and you will always have a job. My greatest success over the years is helping my beautiful wife raise our two daughters. Now I have 5 grand-children and my two sons-in-law. I love my family so much. I am a happy man.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a Mormon. My Mother taught me that it was true. It has taken me many years to find my own testimony of Jesus Christ. I love the Mormon Church and I am so blessed to belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. My Greatest goal is to live the gospel, go through the temple and have my family sealed to me so we can return to our father in heaven for time and eternity.

How I live my faith

I was inactive for about 30 years and after I had I was raised in the church when I was young but fell away at age 16. I learned the basics and I know the church was true because my Mom told me it was. After I had a heart attack I decided I wasn't going to last forever so I had better start learn about the gospel. The missionaries got us started going to church and we have been studying and learning since 1992. I have had many cllings and have learned so much. The more I learn about the gospel, the more I realize I don't know. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ. Now we are going to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. We are so excited.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Gerald D Mecham
What I believe in. My belief in the church, that I know that God is our Father in heaven, that Jesus Christ is his only begotten son. Through his atonement we will all be reserected. I know that the Holy Ghost will guide us and direct us as long as we keep the commandments. Show more Show less
