Hi I'm Garrett

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have lived in the Salt Lake area of Utah my whole life. Right now, I am serving as a full-time missionary in the Ohio Cleveland mission. I have five other siblings. I love my family soo much and I love spending time with them and playing games with them. I also enjoy four wheeling in the mountains. I'm not very good at any sports besides swimming, but I like to play basketball and soccer with friends just for fun. I love all kinds of music, from alternative to hip-hop and from country to classical. Even though I'm not the best piano player by any means, I love to sit down and play the piano in my free time, and I hope to get better at it.

Why I am a Mormon

 I've been raised in the church my whole life. I feel that I've been abundantly blessed by God since my childhood. Compared to many other people, I've lived a very uncomplicated and happy life, and never questioned why I went to church every sunday, or why I prayed every day, or why I lived any of the others of God's commandments. I just followed the good example of my wonderful parents. All I knew is that doing those things made me happy and helped me to feel secure. As I grew older, my love for the gospel increased as I began to understand why I did them. I learned that I did them because I love my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I continue to do them because we are blessed when we keep the commandments and live lives that God wnats us to live. It's not always easy, but I know that it is worth it.

How I live my faith

 I read and study the Book of Mormon and the Bible as much as possible, and I pray every day. Prayer has been a HUGE help in my life, and I know that God, our Heavenly Father, listens to us and watches over us. I am thankful for the knowledge that I have that I can pray to him any time I need to. I go to church every sunday, and keep the other commandments of God, such as paying tithing, living the word of wisdom, and following the counsel of God's living prophets on the earth today.
