Hi I'm Gilbert

I bet she was. And this is me. Now you see me, now...

About Me

Share things that can help others relate to who you are and what you do. What are your hobbies and interests? Are you a mom/dad? Are you going to college? Share what you've done that other people might identify with. It doesn't need to be too long. Avoid sharing personal information such as your last name, your family members' names, your school, your city, or any other contact information of either you or someone else.

Why I am a Mormon

This section is meant to help visitors understand why you've chosen to be a member of His church. You can talk about your conversion story or perhaps why you continue to follow His gospel. Share your testimony and what it means to you. Past transgressions given in detail should be avoided.

How I live my faith

Tell others how you participate in your community or your ward/branch. It's appropriate to talk about your callings or hometeaching and visiting teaching. Do you teach the youth? Do you organize events for your church? Try to avoid phrases like "elders quorum" or "Relief Society" as these may be unfamiliar to our visitors.

How does the Church finance its operations?

Gordon B. Hinckley, prior President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, said: “Our major source of revenue is the ancient law of the tithe. Our people are expected to pay 10 percent of their income to move forward the work of the Church. The remarkable and wonderful thing is that they do it. Tithing is not so much a matter of dollars as it is a matter of faith. It becomes a privilege and an opportunity, not a burden. Our people believe in the word of God as set forth in the book of Malachi, that the Lord will open the windows of heaven and pour down blessings that there will not be room enough to receive them (Malachi 3:8-10). Moving and touching is the testimony of Latter-day Saints throughout the world concerning this, the Lord’s law for the financing of His work.” Show more Show less
