Hi I'm Gabriella

I am a single mom. I'm Hungarian. And I love being a Mormon.

About Me

I love to create, make new things, should it be a drawing on a wall, a knitted pullover, a leather cover for my scriptures or a new hair-do. I love nature for its perfection. I love music. When words are not enough music can still express feelings.

Why I am a Mormon

When my daughter was born I wanted to make sure she'd get everything she needs in her life. No fancy clothes or expensive toys but something that will always be with her to help through the ups and downs of life. Something she can always turn to under any circumstances. When I was a child I did not believe in God. Both my parents were baptized to the Catholic church after being born. My maternal grandfather was said to be a Jew but never practiced any religion. In our family we never talked about faith, religion was considered something to blindfold unsatisfied people. Through the years I developed my own faith, first it did not have much to do with God. The birth of my child made me realize I needed to make a commitment to God and that we both need to be baptized. Don't misunderstand me: I was looking for an easy way. I never had any intentions to take an active role in any church. And when I started seeking was the exact time that I met the missionaries. The same Elder baptized me after a 4 month investigation that was teaching me the Gospel for 8 1/2 months altogether. Everything the Gospel said, everything the Elders taught matched my opinion of the world. My testimony came line by line very clearly and undoubtedly. I obeyed a commandment and I received the blessing accordingly. I like being a convert. I was never expected to believe the teachings blindly but was asked to find out myself. I was offered to pray about it to ask God himself for the answers. My testimony is strong because of my own personal experiences. Never doubted the Gospel was true, only had doubts in myself if I can endure. The greatest blessing of the Gospel is learning my potentials, being able to do things I would never have thought of because of fear or lack of experience. I am learning how to overcome my greatest opponent, myself. I have experienced that as long as I am faithful to my covenants I can count on the Lord's help no matter how hard the situation seems to be.

How I live my faith

Most important in my life is to be an example to my little daughter to follow. Being a role model to her makes me be more responsible and moderate. The Gospel of Jesus Christ helps me overcome difficulties and hard times and most of all my own weaknesses. Through His teachings I can be a better person, a better mother, daughter, sister, friend.
