Hi I'm Gwen

I am a missionary, an artist, a student, and a lover of languages.

About Me

I am an artist and a university student, and I really like school! I watch a lot of movies and have a growing interest in science fiction. I am the second of five children in my family and all of my siblings are learning various languages, which is very cool. I am very happy and excited for the opportunity that I currently have to serve as a missionary.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this church gives me clarity and peace. When I feel distraught about things--be they large-scale crises in the world or small, personal questions--I feel comfort in knowing that Jesus Christ has lived and died to make all things come out right. The gospel of Jesus Christ helps me feel hope for the present and the future. The church provides a place where I can always refocus on goodness and calm and where I am able to put my experience into a perspective that gives me greater love for the Earth and for her people.

How I live my faith

As a missionary, my goal is to get to know people and teach them how the things that I love and that make me happy (namely the church and the friendship that I am developing with the Savior) can make them happy as well. I will be doing this for the next year and half, and then I will return to my family and school.
