Hi I'm Garett

Classic Ukulele playing, longboard riding, gospel loving, wanderlusting adventurer. :)

About Me

My name is Garett. I read. I longboard. I play the ukulele, guitar, piano. I have dreams of playing the cello, trumpet, and basically all the rest ;) I love trees. I in fact grew two avocado trees from seed. Idaho does not treat them very well (even though they are inside). I also have a pineapple plant and many grapefruit starts. And some pomegranate starts :) Nature is my thing. I also Love motorcycles! I buy, fix, ride and overall enjoy! I hope to someday write a book :) I figure so many people have done it then why not me? I am about to serve a mission and then afterwards I will be attending BYU-I. I love life. I love Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ more than anything :) I love the Book of Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the happiness it brings me :) I know the church is true, but if it wasn't I wouldn't stop living it. The Gospel means everything to me. I believe the church is true. I know Joseph smith restored the Gospel of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I know we were sent to this earth to be happy. I know that we are all sent here to gain a body. I know the Book of Mormon is true because when I read it, nothing else makes sense. My feelings for the Book of Mormon are from God. I am a Mormon because It makes me happy and nothing else makes sense.

How I live my faith

Currently I am learning more about the Gospel than ever before. It has nothing to do with my placement or timing, just my attitude :) learning that Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father truly want us to return to them again has put the gospel into a whole new perspective for me. It shows all that is given to us is help to return to them again. Every trial even. Trials become a blessing when you learn the true meaning of them. I have not had an easy life but I wouldn't trade it for anything because of the fact that it was given by god :)
