Hi I'm Ginanne

I'm a mother. I have gastroparesis. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a small town in a very wooded area that I loved to explore. I was homeschooled through most of high school and married quickly after. I now have one daughter who is 4 and a newborn son. I suffer from a chronic invisible illness called gastroparesis, but I don't let that get me down. Some favorite hobbies of mine are geocaching, hiking, camping, board games, video games, and just spending time with family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, but never really converted till I was a teenager. I started to rebel, and realized I wasn't happy. I started to ask for myself if the church was true, and followed the standards given, and my life became so much better. It was confirmed to me the church is true. I made better choices, made better friends, and my life has been blessed greatly from it. I find so much support and love and acceptance from the church. Not only does the teachings help guide me in my choices with raising my children and other important decisions, but other members in the church are great friends that keep me going in times of need.

How I live my faith

I attend church every week as much as health will allow. I make and print the bulletin every week given to everyone that comes to the Sunday meetings. It lists the speakers of the day and any announcements for activities coming up. I also like to add a quote to it for everyone to read. I choose that quote from talks the leaders of the church have given. I enjoy reading old talks and finding something that I can apply to my own life and hopefully others can too.

What is the priesthood?

The priesthood is the power of Christ given to worthy male members of His church to use to do many different things, like sacred ordinances, healing the sick, blessing children, etc. Show more Show less
