Hi I'm Ginny

I am an only child, a mother of two, a wife of 20 years, a survivor, a convert, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a fourth generation Arizona native and an only child. I grew up in Mesa and was introduced to the church through friends at a fairly young age. I was baptized just before my 12th birthday, so I never attended primary. Both of my parents passed at a young age, but thankfully I married into a large family (my husband is one of nine) so I am still surrounded by many loved ones. I have two children and a wonderful husband. We work hard and play hard. My husband is an Associate Engineer and I am a Purchasing Manager. Our hobbies include water skiing, riding dirt bikes and quads, riding road bikes, riding horses, and rough housing with our 3 dogs. Three years ago we found out that I had a brain tumor. After a successful surgery to remove the tumor and better than expected recovery, I am thankful everyday for the life my Heavenly Father has given me. I am an only child, a mother of two, a wife of 20 years, a survivor, a convert, and I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I was not brought up with a religious background; my family did not attend a church. My parents always taught me to seek out my own religion and beliefs. When I was younger I attended many different denominations, but I never felt a sense of belonging or surety until I started attending the LDS church. I started receiving the missionary lessons and immediately knew that this is where I belonged. I believe that Christ lived upon the earth, that he was crucified and died for our sins, that he was resurrected, and that we will all have the chance to be together again after this life.

How I live my faith

Each Sunday I take the sacrament and renew my baptismal covenants with my Heavenly Father. I am not perfect and I am grateful for the opportunity to repent and keep trying. I currently serve as a Ward Missionary. Serving others has always been important to me, but seeing others receive the knowledge of our Heavenly Father’s plan and the light it gives them is more than words can describe.
