Hi I'm Claire Gardner

I'm a musician. I'm passionate about families. I'm going to Tucson, Arizona, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been playing the harp for almost seven years. I'm a student at BYU, and I'm majoring in Family Studies. I have been called to serve in the Arizona Tucson mission, and I'm absolutely thrilled to go! I love to sing, and I love to express what most people can't say with words alone through music.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon, and not just because I was born into the faith. I know this gospel is true because I've seen miracles happen in my own life. I feel the Spirit everyday, and I can see the hand of the Lord helping me along the way. God has never let me down. Even when things didn't make sense, or when I was scared, He helped me through it. Because of the knowledge of the Gospel, I konw that I can be with my family forever. I know that the Savior suffered the Atonement for us so we can repent of our sins and be made clean again. It is wonderful.

How I live my faith

I am going to be serving a mission for the Church in a few months, and I couldn't be more excited! I love to do family history and help others find their ancestors and learn about their past. I love to serve those around me, and I try to make someone smile every day.

What is being a Mormon like?

Claire Gardner
Being a Mormon is amazing- you have the peace of the Gospel leading your life everyday. Being a Mormon helps me know that there is a bigger picture. Because I am a Mormon, I know that my family can be together forever. I know that Jesus Christ suffered and died for me. I know that I am a daughter of a loving Heavenly Father and that He loves me. With this knowledge guiding my life, I can be consistently joyful. Show more Show less
