Hi I'm Gideon

I grew up with a family of five in Tacoma WA. I graduated from Borah high school in 2006. I am a member.

About Me

I'm the youngest of the five in my family. I really enjoy the book of mormon and the bible. Meeting new people and other branches of family from my brother and sister inlaw is an honor. I was raised in the church and baptized into the church of jesus christ of latter day saints when I turned 8. I really have a big interest in writing music and singing them. As well as playing the piano, which I've done in the past 16 years of my life almost. I like to read all kinds of books, but my favorite kind would have to be the scriptures. I learn so much just by reading them. I served a mission in Mississippi Jackson. I loved the two full years of it and I wouldn't trade it for the world at any given time. At this time of the year where we have the moment to reflect on the savior, we have a deep appreciation for what he did for all of his children. Christmas and Thanksgiving would have to be my two favorite holidays.

Why I am a Mormon

I've sometimes wondered why it was so important to be a member of the church of jesus christ of latter day saints. It never occurred to me to think about that until just recently. I always picture myself doing other things that a normal person would do if i never joined or grew up in the church. Then I receive a confirmation from the Holy Ghost that being a member was the deepest and most important thing I would ever do i my life. People say that there are to many rules and guide lines to follow. I tell them that its your choice to do was right or whats wrong. It's funny to say, but I'm proud of making mistakes in life, because that's what makes us stronger and builds confidence in our ownself. This is why I'm a mormon, to grow and to learn new things as time goes on.

How I live my faith

If you are one of those individuals who show their faith by their actions, then that would be me as well. I keep going no matter what. I love the lord and all he's done for me. I stay strong and always show my faith by my actions.
