Hi I'm Gillen Johnson

I grew up in Brigham City, Utah. I have a wonderful family. Jesus Christ is my Savior and Redeemer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a student at Utah State University and I am preparing to serve a mission to El Salvador for the next two years. I am from a family of 8 and I love to hang out with my brothers and sisters. I love sports and outdoors activities like hiking and camping. I love doing things with my friends, especially pulling pranks on my other friends!

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon my entire life. Through my own personal trials and hardships I have realized that there is must more to life then just what is here on earth. Through the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints I know that I have a loving Father in Heaven who knows who I am as a person. He looks out for me and gives me opportunities to learn and become better through trials or obstacles that are put in my life. He gave me a Savior, Jesus Christ, to help make up for my imperfections and to help guide through out my daily life. Because of all that I have been given I strive to live my life like Christ and keep it in accordance with the way my Heavenly Father would want me. I know the Book of Mormon is scripture and is a testament of Jesus Christ that was translated by Joseph Smith through the power of God. By studying the Book of Mormon and the Holy Bible I know that I will be able to live they way I am supposed to.

How I live my faith

I am currently preparing to be a missionary to the El Salvador, San Salvador West/ Belize Mission. I am leaving June 26th. I always try to be an influence in my ward whenever I can and however I can. I love trying to help others understand the gospel of Jesus Christ and help them to know that Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father both love us very much.
