Hi I'm Gayla

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother of three beautiful children. I love road biking, mountain biking, running, and hiking in the great outdoors. I graduated from the University of Utah and have a great love for learning.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have come to know for myself that the teachings of this wonderful church are true, and that the gospel has indeed been restored to the earth. I don't say "I know" lightly, as I have worked and studied a great deal to come to know for myself that this is the Lord's church on the earth, and that this church provides answers to common struggles and questions that we each experience as part of being a living and breathing human being. As I strive to make the teachings of this church the center point in my life, I feel the Lord's love, and I feel comfort, peace, and guidance throughout my days. I passionate about this church because I have felt the effects of its teachings in my life - they are real, and they are powerful. I know the Lord loves us and that He is very much aware of us! My husband died of brain cancer five years ago, leaving me with 2 small children. As I turned to the gospel for answers and help I was able to feel strength, peace, and comfort through a very difficult time. Something inside of us resonates when we hear truth. I am thankful for the teachings of this church that resonate inside of me and and fill me with hope and happiness. The gospel is true!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to be mindful of my beliefs, and striving to make my actions match my beliefs each and every day.
