Hi I'm Gabrielle

I am from Utah. I play the violin and the piano. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest child in my family and I have five younger brothers. I just recently graduated with a degree in instrumental music education. I love music and I love teaching. I started playing piano at the age of two and the violin at the age of eight. Since the age of twelve, I have been teaching private violin and piano lessons. I really enjoy playing in ensembles and orchestras. Some other things I enjoy doing include spending time with my family and traveling.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family. I was baptized and became a member of the church at the age of eight. I have always attended my church meetings and believed what my parents believed. But at the age of twelve, I decided that I needed to know for myself whether or not what I have believed all of my life was really true. I read the Book of Mormon and prayed to God to help me know the truth and develop my own personal testimony. After praying and studying, I was overcome with this feeling of peace and warmth that covered my entire body. I felt so much love, peace, and joy. I knew that this was my answer and that I could not doubt that was I had learned was true. As I continue to live the gospel and strive to strengthen my testimony, I get that same feeling that reminds me that what I am doing is right and that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true. I am reminded every time I read the Book of Mormon, go to church, or attend the temple. Living this gospel has brought so much peace, hope, and happiness into my life. I know that there is a God, a loving Heavenly Father who knows me and watches over me. I know that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that the Atonement is real. Through His sacrifice, we can be cleansed from all sin and become better each day. Joseph Smith is a prophet of God. And it is through him that God restored the gospel back on the earth in this Latter-Day. The Book of Mormon is Another Testament of Jesus Christ. It is the Word of God. Because of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, I know that I can be with my family forever.

How I live my faith

I attend a Young Single Adult ward in my area for singles who are between the ages of 18 and 30. In this ward, I serve as the music co-chair. I play the organ or lead the music every Sunday for church. I enjoy also attending the temple. I am currently preparing to serve as a full-time missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I have been called to serve in the Uruguay Montevideo mission. I leave May 22nd to report to the Missionary Training Center in Argentina.
