Hi I'm Ginny Stewart

I'm a missionary in Baltimore Maryland! I am a flutist and a pianist. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in California, with an amazing family and hilarious friends. Growing up, I tried my hand in a lot of sports, like basketball, gymnastics, horseback-rding, water polo, soccer, and a couple attempts at a dancing class. However, I loved swimming and stuck with it most of my life, swimming on both a recreational team and my high school team. I've played the piano and flute since a young age, and I absolutely love music. It's a big part of who I am. I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at 14 years old. It was a life-changing event and a very large part of who I am and what defines me. Not because I feel that people are defined by their diseases and weaknesses in life, but because I've learned a lot about myself through my disease. I attend Brigham Young University, but I am taking off 18 months to serve an LDS mission in the Maryland Baltimore mission!

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was raised in the LDS church, my own true conversion has been an on-going process. As I learn more about the gospel, my love for my savior and Heavenly Father grows. I am a Mormon because it brings a joy and peace that I cannot find anywhere else. I know that my Heavenly Father is a loving God, who knows me and the desires of my heart. I know that He has a plan for all of His children. I know He sent His son Jesus Christ to the earth, as well as sacred scriptures, so we can have the knowledge to live worthily enough to return to His presence. I know that everything is in God's hands, so no matter what difficult trials we face, everything will be okay. This knowledge is the most important thing I have, and the greatest gift I could ever share is this happiness that I have in the gospel.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by sharing it! I'm blessed to serve as a missionary in the Baltimore Maryland area. I invite others to hear the message of peace that I have learned through my membership in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I know that obedience to the gospel brings us closer to the Savior than anything else. I am so grateful for the opportunity to share that hope with everyone else!
