Hi I'm Gerald

Born and raised in Maryland. I have a love of food, writing, football, living life and my faith. Oh yeah and I'm a Mormon

About Me

My name is Gerald, I work for Verizon Telecommunications as a Internet Tech Support Agent. I am also a writer of Sci Fi novels, and have a deep passion for the gospel, my family, staying fit, and hanging with my friends. I absolutely love nature as a way to just escape the hustle and bustle of the world. I enjoy football, Rugby, MMA, and hiking for physical activity! Most importantly I'm a MORMON!

Why I am a Mormon

First off I'm a convert, and I discovered this church through a friend about 6 years ago. Back then when I was 19 I wasn't exactly mature enough to grasp the understanding and make that change in my life, and for some reason after about a month of investigating I stopped. Over next last three years, I felt like something was missing. There was darkness all around me, and one day I just fell to my knees and asked for helped. The last three years was the heavenly father's way of breaking me down to build me up again. Since accept the lord and savior I have recieved many blessings, and it's been a complete turn around compared to the last two years before.Sharing this gospel has been a way for me to return my gratitude to my Heavenly Father. I truly love this church and this gospel and it has totally changed my life!

How I live my faith

I currently Serve in my Ward as a counselor in the Elders Quorum Presidency, as well as YSA representative. I love my callings because it allows me to serve as many people as I can. Through the YSA rep calling, I have the ability to create activities which create opportunities for fellowshipping and fun. With the goal of bringing those who may be struggling in faith or not of our faith to the Gospel. As I said I serve in my Elders Quorum Presidency as one of the counselors. I love this calling, it's such an honor to be able to serve the elders in my ward, and help them. Nothing fills me more with confidence than knowing Heavenly Father felt I could perform at a high level in this calling. It's a learning experience as I serve others, and being a convert of 4 years, those experiences are much needed. I enjoy serving with the missionaries when I can, and just bearing my testimony whenever I can. And through following the commandments and counsel of our General Authorities and priesthood leaders being an example to others. I can testify there is no better way to spread the gospel than being a living example of the testimony which we speak!
