Hi I'm Giselle

I'm a wife, food network fan, designer, party planner, traveller, Hoya, Tarheel, & dentist. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

* I am a lover of uplifting & thoughtful quotes. * I am a student of delicious, healthy, natural cuisines. I prepare Barefoot Contessa fare whenever I'm in the mood for something especially sapid. * I thoroughly enjoy the matchless beauty of nature. * I delight to pour over inspiring books of great minds. * I am particular about what is important to me. * I floss every night. * I dabble in hiking, biking, walking, jogging, pilates, yoga, kickboxing, weights, sailing, dancing. * I have a yellow laborador & have been known to make food especially for him. * I was born & raised on the east coast & have lived in France. * I know who I am. I know my goals. I know my purpose. I know where I want to go. * I multiply my joy in life infinitely as I bask in the vicarious joys of all people around me. * I love creating my life as I live it.

Why I am a Mormon

• I took the promise in the Book of Mormon to heart, and, through sincere prayer, received an answer of its truthfulness. "And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask of God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost." Moroni 9: 4 • I know for myself that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the Savior’s church. I have received a heavenly witness and am determined to live according to the light and knowledge that I have. • Being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is a constantly invigorating challenge to personally become better every day in every way possible. • My faith grows in the gospel and I progress as I live it. Every gospel principle that I apply in my life gives me greater joy, understanding, compassion, appreciation of blessings, optimism, peace, love for others, love for and faith in the Savior and confidence in myself to continue to progress. My membership in the Church and testimony of its truthfulness give me purpose and direction and enable me to become my best possible self. They mean everything to me.
