Hi I'm Destiny Gillies

I grew up mainly in West Valley and Magna. I went to Cyprus high school and after attended Snow College. I am a Mormon.

About Me

In high school i was on the dance company and show choir. I participated in the musicals and in thespian society. I know quite a bit of ASL. I love playing all sports especially basketball and soccer. After high school I attended Snow College for a year and am now about to serve an LDS mission in New Hampshire Manchester. I love people and enjoy company rather than spending my time alone.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church however it wasn't till I was age 14 that I knew that the church was true. My whole life was constantly changing divorce after divorce, moving school to school, meeting new people and losing great ones. Life was hard and I hated all the change i was faced with. However through all this I realized one thing in my life that was constant and never changing. That was the church and the scriptures. Through my crazy life I was always able to feel at home somewhere and that was in the arms of my Heavenly Father. His love for me was always there and there was nothing in the world that could change that. I was able to read the Book of Mormon more often and more carefully and as I did this I came to the knowledge that this church is without a doubt the true church of Jesus Christ. I know what it means to be a Mormon and I know what it means to be a child of God and do his work. I am a Mormon because I want to be and I would not want to be anything else.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church and reading the scriptures. I live up to my callings and fulfill them to the best of my ability. Some of my previous callings were ward chorister, ward missionary, miamaid president, and beehive secretary. My calling now is to be a full time missionary of the Lord for a period of 18 months. I continually build my testimony by learning everything I can and by my own personal witness which also means my own experiences. I pay my tithing and keep the commandments which we have been given. I try to serve those in need that I come across. I do my very best to love my enemies and treat them how Heavenly Father would want me to. And most importantly I absolutely love Jesus Christ and my Heavenly Father.
