Hi I'm Gemma

I live in London. I'm a red head. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I live in London with my husband and 18 month old son with our daughter due in a few months time. Before I had my family I trained as a Dental Hygienist/ Therapist and worked in and around London. These days I spend less time on teeth and more time on entertaining my beautiful boy. We love going to Londons many parks and exploring new places. I enjoy weekend trips to the countryside as well as tourist attractions in this great city we live in.

Why I am a Mormon

I wasn't born into the church. In fact, I grew up in a very anti religious home. My father died suddenly when I was six years old which of course was devistating for me and my family. As I got older I had more and more questions about where my father was and whether or not I would see him again. When I was sixteen years old I became friends with a mormon girl and she explained to me that one day I would see my father again. This made me want to learn more about the church so I started attending and learning all about the faith. As I began learning I felt something that I had never felt before. I felt such peace and happiness, I knew it was right. I knew that for me this would be a life long commitment and I wanted to be ready. I got baptised when I was eighteen years old and it was the best decision I have ever made. I am thirty one years old now and I'm married to a mormon and we are bringing up our children in the gospel. It gives me such comfort to know that God loves me and that I am never alone. I know that The Book of Mormon is the word of God and that Joseph Smith was a true Prophet called by God. I know that Jesus Christ is the Saviour and that he died for each one of us and suffered so that we can be forgiven of our sins. I feel so blessed to know these things and want to share with everyone how happy it makes me.

How I live my faith

I love going to church and feel like I learn new things all the time that help me in my life. To me, being a Mormon means giving service and taking on responsibilities. Right now I am responsible for the youth in our congregation and I love it. We organise weekly activities as well as Sunday lessons. We have our annual summer camp coming up which we all look forward to every year. The young people often teach me more than I teach them, they are such great examples and its a real privilege to work closely with them.
