Hi I'm Jacob Gunner Gilland

I grew up in Virginia. I am currently serving a mission Utah. I love this church so much!I am a Mormon just like you!

About Me

My name is Gunner and I know that being Mormon is the greatest thing on earth. I am currently serving a mission in Ogden, Utah! When I am not serving The Lord I am always out playing soccer! I plan on continuing my career in college and hopefully play professionally one day. My family is currently living in Washington state. I come from a family of six including me! I was born into the church. Both sets of my grandparents are converts to the church and are still active in the church. I love my family so much and try mean the world to me. I am always striving to be a good example to others. Most importantly, I love my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and this church more than anything.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a member of this church is the greatest thing that has ever happened to me in my life. It blesses my life each and every single day. I've seen this gospel change lives many times. I know that there is no other church out there that is as special as this one. The members are amazing people are care so much about you just as Jesus Christ would. Growing up in this church has helped me learn from right from wrong. It is the reason why I am so happy all the time! I know that this is the only true church on the earth today and if you pray to Heavenly Father and ask him he will testify this to you as well. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and was translated by Joseph Smith who restored His gospel back on the earth for the latter days. I believe that we have a living prophet here on the earth to this day, Thomas S. Monson who seeks revelation from God. I know that Heavenly Father loves each and every single one of us and knows us individually and I know that as we pray to him he will answer our prayers and help us out as we live in this wicked world. Being a member of this church is the greatest thing and I wouldn't change it for the world. Amen.

How I live my faith

Being a member of this church is the greatest thing. It can also be difficult at times when living around people with other faiths and desires. But as you seek good he will bless you. Faith starts out as a small mustard seed. As you water it, it will grow immensely! Therefore, as you go out and bare your testimony, your faith will grow larger and larger. Faith is believing without seeing but as you pray and seek good things in life, you will come closer to the Lord and he will bless your life! Being a member of the church, it is always important to be a good example. No matter where you go, people are watching you and that´s something I´ve always kept in mind. As I live my life and teach others, I teach them the importance of Faith.
