Hi I'm Garrett

I was born in Brigham City Utah, and have lived in Perry Utah most of my life, I also lived in California for a year. I'm a Mormon

About Me

My full name is Garrett Russell Ord, My Moms name is Suzanne Ord, and my Dads name is Richard Ord. I have two older sisters, no brothers. There names are Michelle Ord, and Kandice Ord. They are both married and have family's of there own. So that makes me the baby, or the last child. I am currently getting ready to serve a mission for two years, and I have been called to labor in the Washington Federal Way Mission! Some of my hobbies or interests are Sports, Music like singing and playing the piano, technology, and cars.

Why I am a Mormon

I continue to follow the gospel of Jesus Christ because I know it makes me happy when I choose to do what is right and follow Gods commandments. I also know this to be the true church because I have seen miracles, and had the Spirit bear witness to me that the Bible and the Book of Mormon are true. The book of Mormon is a book for our day, every time I read the book it makes me want to continue reading it and know more knowledge and truth. I know if we have faith in Jesus Christ and try hard to keep his commandments, he will bless us. I also know that the power of prayer is very powerful and has strengthened me and gave me peace. It can give you that same feeling if you have faith in him, he wants to hear from you and is aware of what you want and need that are righteous. I also know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet, and did restore the gospel back here on the earth through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and that the book of Mormon is true. I would like to share a scripture that I just read in the Book of Mormon in Alma 32: 27-28 it reads: It must needs be that this is a good seed, or that the word is good, for it beginneth to enlarge my soul; yea, it beginneth to enlighten my understanding, yea, it beginneth to be delicious to me.

How I live my faith

I helped plan activity's for my priest quorum, did service projects for other people, Eagle scout projects. I did lessons and gave talk's in church. I did fast offerings,prepared and administered the sacrament. I did lots of home teaching with my companion, I did shut-ins for those who were sick and wanted the sacrament. I played the piano for priesthood and mutual opening exercises. I also participated in ward choir and shared my vocal talent in sacrament meetings, and seminary graduation.
