Hi I'm Garrett

I'm a husband, father, educator, outdoorsman, techie geek, and a Mormon!

About Me

First and foremost I am a husband and father. I am the dad to two great boys. My other passion happens to be my profession, teaching. I am a middle school assistant principal. This is my first experience as an administrator and I am finding it very rewarding. I get the normal reactions when people find out I am Mormon like, "You can't drink coffee or Coke." "How many wives do you have?" I put all those to rest by answering them quickly and concisely so they can get to know me. I am a dedicated individual. Get to know me and you will find a friend. Feel free to send me a message or ask any questions.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a Mormon has brought me tremendous joy. I have met my wife to whom I am married to for eternity. I also know that my sons will be with us forever. Much of what I do is based on the family and the fact that I will be with them after this life and throughout eternity. All of this is possible through Jesus Christ and all that he has done for me, and the rest of the world.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by being an example. I try to do what is right. I help where I can and volunteer when I can. I am starting to do work in the church with others who use HAM radios. This is something new for me. I have come to learn that this is a very valuable tool in emergency situations.

How can we stop the spread and influence of pornography?

The church has released a great website call www.combatingpornograpy.com which has great resources for anyone needing help dealing with this problem. Another thing that a person can do is to not keep a problem like this a secret. It is crucial that they share their struggles with a trusted friend or leader. Making connections is important. Surround yourself with good people that want to help you succeed. Show more Show less

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

I have had the great blessing of being married to my wonderful wife in the temple, which means we have been sealed. The means that we are bound on earth until we die and after we die. We will be together for eternity. This is made possible through the priesthood. This is the power and authority to act in the name of God. Now my family and I can be together forever. What a great blessing! Show more Show less

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

Knowledge is one of the most powerful tools Heavenly Father has given us. He has given us the ability to acquire knowledge of this world and of spiritual things. By reading the scriptures I have come to a knowledge of who my Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and Holy Ghost are. The connection that I have to my Father has also been strengthened by reading. One of the other great blessings we can receive by reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible and other scriptures are answers to life's problems. I find answers to problems big and small when I prayerfully read and ponder the scriptures. Show more Show less
