Hi I'm Nashleigh Jo Gittins

I grew up in Utah. I have 6 people in my family. I was called to serve a mission in Barcelona Spain. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Nashleigh! I have two brothers, one sister-in-law, and my parents. I am the youngest and only girl. I was called to serve a mission in Spain. I danced all through high school. I enjoy singing but my favorite hobby is playing sports. I grew up playing soccer and softball then I tried cheerleading and dance. You will always see me smiling!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love everything about the church. It always brings me peace when I am having a hard time. I can always turn to the people in my ward to comfort me and support me. I grew up in the church my whole life and I wouldn't want it any other way. I love the Book of Mormon and the lessons it teaches me and the history it has. I couldn't live without the communication I get to have with our Heavenly Father the the guidance he gives me. It gives me comfort to know I can be with my family forever and return to my Father in Heaven and His Son. I can't wait to serve my mission and help those that want to know about the gospel and I am very blessed I can do that by being a member. Being a Mormon honestly makes me so happy and I would never change anything about me because by being a Mormon I am who I am today!

How I live my faith

I have been called to help the youth in past and I always taught the children. I am going to serve a mission for the Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints. I will give 18 months of my life to teach people of the wonder gospel and the church. I help others with community service. I visit families just to see how they are doing and if they need anything.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Nashleigh Jo Gittins
Mormons are not required to serve a mission. Young men are suggested to go on missions and it serve for 2 years. They used to be called at age 19 but do to changes they can now leave at age 18. Young women are now aloud to go at age 19 where they used to have to wait till they were 21. Many more women are going on missions now that the age has been lowered. Just because it was lowered does not mean you have to go on a mission or have to go at that age. It is just giving those individuals that want to go at a younger age the chance to before starting a family. Missionaries are called all over the world to teach those who want to know the gospel and desire to have it in their lives. Missionaries are completely voluntary. Show more Show less
