Hi I'm Gary

I am a Mormon convert because I was searching for the Lord's church vs. man-kinds' invention of what God is. God answers prayer!

About Me

My parents were divorced because of very difficult times for them and having little or no parenting themselves. I moved a couple times a year growing up changing parents to live with. This gave me opportunity to meet many people and many religions...I respected each.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have come to know who the Lord is and how He will help and guide us in our lives if we will turn to him regarding everything we do. I now understand that Jesus Christ is our Savior and a literal son of Heavenly Father who is also our father. The priesthood is restored to the earth and so we again have a prophet and twelve apostles plus all the other offices of the original church established by Jesus Christ himself. I prayed to know if the Book of Mormon is true and I honestly received an answer that it is true. I am a very happy man with my family and the true gospel.

How I live my faith

The church offers opportunities for everyone to participate in functions that help others. I love visiting families as a home teacher...looking out for other's interest is so satisfying. Once I was a scout master and served with several young boys--hard work but the benefit of being with these great kids was really special. Later I was called to be a bishop and loved the sweet associations with individuals and families. I learned again service to others is a way to thank and love our Heavenly Father.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Families provide us with the basic needs of life...protection, fundamental teachings, love, acceptance unconditionally, proper mindsets, values, disciplines, ie the foundations of life. Joy. We came from a family in the pre-earth existence, we need a family here on earth, and we will belong to a family in the eternities. The plan of happiness and family life is the same.
