Hi I'm Garett

I'm an athlete, I'm an eagle scout, called to serve in the Micronesia Guam mission, I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love anything that gets your adrenaline rushing, things like riding motorcycles, hunting or sports, I played football from 6th grade all the way through high school, I also played 3 years of basketball and a year of track, i wasn't always the best but I loved almost every minute of it, I hope to try and play some college football when I return from my mission. I'm a really easy going person and i can get along with just about anyone, I served as senior class president my last year of high school and loved getting to work with the students with planning activity's, school functions and such. After I return from serving my mission, I plan on majoring in sports medicine and hope to become some sort of athletic trainer or physical therapist. I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ and am exited to serve the people of Micronesia.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I've personally seen the way it blesses peoples lives, I've seen the gospel changes so many peoples lives for the better and become better happier people because of it. I was lucky enough to be born into an LDS family with some of the strongest testimonys I know, and because of their examples combined with my own study and prayer, I can say that I have my own testimony of this church, I know that my Heavenly Father knows me, loves me and looks out for me and I Know that this is the true Gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

One way I live my faith is by serving in my callings. previously I served as the first assistant to the bishop in the priest quorum, I was in charge of planning activity's, leading all our meetings, making sacrament assignments and helping our quorum come together as a group and create unity and friendship within the quorum. currently I hold the calling of ward missionary. I help our ward mission leader in any way he feels we can help the ward, this mainly consist of visiting those within our ward sharing, sharing a message with them and making sure they feel loved and welcomed and serving them in any way they may need. Towards the end of my Junior year of high school, my school received 2 exchange students from Ghana, I got to know them and we quickly became great friends! not long after I met them I learned that they where not LDS, and me growing up in Mormonville Utah had not had the opportunity to have very many non LDS friends, so it was exiting to me to share my faith with them. I never tried to directly preach to them but I would try to talk about the gospel whenever we where at school, hanging out or at ball practice, I encouraged them to both started reading the Book of Mormon and start taking the missionary discussions and eventfully, not just cause of me but because of all the good influences in their lives, they did and after doing this they both made the decision to be baptized and one of them, who to this day I consider to be one of my best friends gave me the great honor of being the one to baptize him. I'm glad I was able to help them learn the gospel of Jesus Christ and make a decision that will not only bless them in this life, but for all eternity, and i hope to continue to serve people the rest of my life.
