Hi I'm Annick Gagnon

I grew up in Ottawa Ontario Canada. I am a mom of 6 and a grandma of 2. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a travel agent but never actually worked in the field! I do love to travel though. We try to take a family trip down South every two years. Canadian winters can get very cold! We've been to Mexico and the Dominican Republic. We hope to visit friends in Colombia some day very soon. I also love to read and spend time with friends and family. My family loves to host international students. In the past, we have hosted boys from Italy, Spain, Mexico, Colombia, Korea, and Saudi Arabia. We are currently hosting a boy from Colombia and look forward to hosting a Japanese student in February. I run a home daycare and love the opportunity it's given me to be a stay at home mom.

Why I am a Mormon

I was converted to the Church of Jesus Christ of LatterDay Saints at the age of 22, when 2 missionaries knocked on my door. Through their discussions, reading the Book of Mormon and lots of prayer, I could not deny the truth of it all. There was such comfort and joy in knowing my family could be together forever. Shortly after joining the church, I met the love of my life. We were married for time and all eternity in the Toronto Ontario Temple. I love serving others and have had many opportunities to do so. I am blessed when I am doing the Lord's work. I love reading the scriptures as they strenghten my testimony. I have a wonderful support group in the church and consider the members my extended family. It is a wonderful place to be!

How I live my faith

As a member of the Chrch Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints, I have a calling to work with the Primary children. These are children aged 18 months to 11 years. As the primary president, my purpose is to help the children feel Heavenly Fathers love for them, learn and understand the gospel of Jesus Christ, feel and recognize the influence of the Holy Ghost and to prepare to make and keep sacred covenants (baptism for example). I really love working with the children!
