Hi I'm Gavin Coburn

I'm a student, married, in love, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am currently attending Utah State University, where I hope to be getting a degree in Math Education. I am happily married to my wonderful wife and we have been married since August 2nd. We enjoy the blessings that the gospel brings in life. We are truly blessed by the sealing power that binds our marriage for time and all eternity. With this blessing, we are assured that we can be together after we pass and that our love will never end. I love sports, being with my wife, the gospel, and being able to learn.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church because of the blessings and truthfulness that it has brought my life. I know the 3 big questions of life and I have just seen so much joy in my life and in the life of others. I have found the hope and joy that I have noticed all people want in life. I can truly say that I am happy everyday, even when life is tough. I have come to learn that the hard times in life are learning periods for each of us and we can find joy in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by constantly striving to be better. I know that I am not perfect, nor will I ever be while I live on this earth, but I can be assured that each day I can be better. I live my faith by reading the scriptures to deepen my understanding of the Savior, striving to serve those around me, and by attending the temple to learn more about the blessings that are in store for me and all of God's children in this life.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Gavin Coburn
Families to me are so important because that is the place where I learn, grow, and love the most. It is with my family that I find the most peace and joy. It is with my family that I truly feel God's love. I have come to love those around me and they have taught me how to find true happiness in life. The families are central to life now, and families can also go beyond the grave. That is key to know that I can feel this way about my family FOREVER!!! Show more Show less
