Hi I'm Gillian

I'm a California native full of energy, I love traveling, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am the sixth of seven children and grew up 10 minutes away from the sunny beaches of Southern California. I attend Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah where I am studying Neuroscience and Microbiology. I love the sunshine, being outdoors, learning, and eating all sorts of good food!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have taken the time to study and pray about the teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and I have received the same answer countless times - it's true! I love knowing that there is a prophet on the Earth today who can receive revelation for us that will help us become the people God wants us to be. I love being able to learn more about the life of Jesus Christ and ways that I can implement that in my life. I love knowing that even when I make mistakes, that Heavenly Father has provided a way, through His son Jesus Christ, for me to be forgiven and continue on the path. Most importantly, I'm a Mormon because I've received the same answer and feeling that the Church is true too many times to ever deny it. Nothing has brought me more happiness than this gospel and I love the joy that I receive as a result of my membership.

How I live my faith

Living my faith is something that I work on everyday. Whether it's reading my scriptures and saying my prayers or trying develop more Christ-like attributes towards the people around me. I have loved being able to serve as both a teacher for the women in my ward along with teaching some of the adults in my ward. I have also been involved with organizing ward activities and being the pianist for the kids in primary. I love being able to participate in service activities I also have the privilege to serve as a full-time missionary for eighteen months in the Nicaragua Managua North Mission!
