Hi I'm Gina

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother of two daughters and a baby boy on the way. I obtained a degree in Professional Child Development a year and a half ago. My husband is in dental school and the girls and I keep busy in the little community we live in. I love sports especially volleyball. I played for a junior college for 2 years before deciding to start our family. Even though we live far away from our families, we love our simple life and the blessings we have been given.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in an LDS family, my parents were both strong members even though they grew up in homes with only one parent a member of the church. I always had a desire to be a member of the church growing up but through seminary and personal experiences I felt the truth of the gospel. I know that prayer works and have felt the power of prayer in my life. I also know that priesthood blessings hold power that can heal us not only physically but emotionally as well. I know my Savior lives and that he died for ME. As unworthy as I may be I can be saved through his mercy and love. He suffered for me that I may live again. I cannot think of a greater blessing than knowing I can live with my family forever. As I see my children grow I am so thankful for the knowledge of eternal families. I am not perfect at reading my scriptures every day but I know when I do read them I can feel a difference in my daily life. The gospel helps me feel peace and comfort in times of need as well as through the good times. I know the gospel makes me a happier person and helps me strive to be better each and every day.

How I live my faith

The Gospel of Jesus Christ teaches us to be more Christlike. It helps us stretch ourselves further than we think is possible. I try to live my faith by reaching out to others, whether it be bringing dinner to someone, watching neighborhood children for them, or any kind of service people stand in need of. This is not always easy for me because I am quite shy but I know how important it is for me as well as the people I serve. The church also stretches me by giving me callings within the ward. We have been in our ward for a year and I have been in the nursery for the majority of the time. Although at times it was hard, I know I did a service for other mother's so they could feel of the spirit during the church hours while I watched their children. Now I have been called to teach a class which is also hard for me because I am horrible and being in front of people. But I know it helps me grow as I prepare the lessons and helps me work on a fear of mine as well. Living my faith helps me to become the person I want to be.
