Hi I'm Gary Lindley

I was born and raised in Utah, I have 6 brothers and 3 sisters. I am a life time Mormon, and was a college wrestler.

About Me

I am a dad and a grandpa and working on 47 years as a husband. I have four children 2 sons and 2 daughters. 13 grandchildren with only 2 granddaughters. I have many things that keep me busy besides grand kids, I like to snow and water ski, hunt and fish, golf and watch football and baseball. I own my own business and also worked in the private sector for many years. I love to build roads and bridges and make things better for people to use and enjoy. I was a referee in college and high school wrestling for 25 years and was an official in the NCAA wrestling championships. My wife and I enjoy traveling and I try to just keep up with the grand kids.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon my whole life. I have never wanted to be anything but a Mormon, I guess that is just the way it has always been. I have strong believe in the teachings and the principles that are part of being a Mormon. I have a great faith and testimony that the gospel was restored, and that the power to act in the name of our Savior was brought back to the earth. My faith is rooted in the believe that God loves us and for sure he loves us today as much as he loved the people in the bible. They were lead by prophets and great leaders, and we have a prophet and a great leader here on this earth today. I have a testimony that as a Mormon I have the inspiration and guidance of a modern day prophet that leads and guides me in the things that are right for me.

How I live my faith

I live the Mormon religion by serving others and trying to do good. I have been a Bishop, and a Stake young men's leader, along with many calling in the ward. Serving as a youth leader and helping young men work through their challenges helps me live gospel principals. Boy Scouting and young men outings along with teaching and spiritual moments are part of how the teachings of the Savior are best taught. Taking part in major youth activities such as pioneer treks, culture events for temple dedications, and multi-stake activities also have help me to live the gospel. As a Mormon I have the opportunity to work on our welfare farms doing things like, hauling hay, gathering eggs, picking tomatoes and grapes, and our latest project is working in a peach orchard. Much good comes from helping in these projects. I believe working as a leader and as a follower is the best way to live a life that Christ would want me to do.
