Hi I'm Gina

I'm a full time mom, assistant bank manager and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a mother of a 16 year old daughter and an 11 year old son. I love spending time with my kids, helping them with homework and spending weekends with the rest of my family. My mother lives far from us and my dad lives far away as well.

Why I am a Mormon

As a young kid, I was separated from my other 5 siblings. This was a very tough time for all of us, in and out of different foster homes. A few months before we were separated by human services, there was a religious convention at the local coliseum. This was something that will remain with me the rest of my life, I participated in this convention as I was passing by and was invited to go inside of the coliseum. As I was wandering in there a person approached me and asked if I had accepted Jesus Christ in my life. During that moment, I wasn't really sure what that entailed. The person must have seen the look on my face and simply said "repeat after me". A couple of months later I was glad that I said that prayer. Needless to say, these experiences shaped me to be who I am. As I reflect, I know that God and Jesus Christ had watched over me during those tough times. Now as an adult, I'm still learning on what it means to accept Jesus Christ in my life. I'm learning that in life not only do I need to accept but to follow Jesus Christ as well. I'm glad to have love, peace, happiness and strength to carry on with the rest of my life, with Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost to always be with me.

How I live my faith

A few ways that I live my faith are; I have served as a youth teacher and I'm currently the women's group assistant. We coordinate various events for the women in our church building and cooperate with other locations of our faith for larger scale events. Another way that I live my faith is that I try to go to church every Sunday. And finally,in general, I just try to improve the way I live my life.
