Hi I'm Gordon Cowley

I grew up in the Mormon faith but fell away for 20+ years. I have come back. I AM A MORMON and proud of it.

About Me

I am married to my beautiful bride of 42 years. I work as a draftsman by trade.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a mormon and up until my late teens was fairly active. I drifted away from the church in my early 20's and then became active again in my early 30's and was sealed to my wife in the temple. In 1992 I had a major motor vehicle accident that disabled me for 7 years at that time we leaned heavily on the church and I felt that my bishop at the time did not handle things well and I was offended and disappointed. I fell away from the church for over 20 years, I turned missionaries and any one involved in the church away. I attended a christian church for 7 years but something was missing. I prayed to my father in heaven to show me the right christian church to attend to lead me to the one he wanted me to attend. One evening in April of 2015 at 9pm the missionaries came to my door and I welcomed them and talked with them and they asked if they could come back to visit again and I said yes. As I said goodnight to them and walked to my living room, I started crying and my wife asked me what was wrong, I told her that nothing was wrong but that I had just had my prayer answered that I was to come back to the LDS church. I have been going every Sunday since and I am growing stronger and more faithful, and am looking forward to attending the temple once again. One final note I later learned that the missionaries that came to my door that night had been inspired to come and visit with me that night.

What blessings can we receive through the gift of the Holy Ghost?

The Holy Ghost can guide you in your life, by praying and asking God if something is right, the spirit of the Holy Ghost will give you a feeling of confirmation or if it is not right you will feel a confusion of thought. Show more Show less
