Hi I'm Gillian Kucharek

I grew up in an Air Force family. I love traveling and reading. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a missionary for the church and am going to Washington DC ASL. I went to BYU for a year before my mission and my current major is psychology. I used to play soccer for my high school and I love playing sports, animals, and reading. I love to travel and want to travel Europe some day.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe that this is the true gospel of Jesus Christ restored on the earth today. I know that our prophets are called by God to teach us and to help us. I know that the Book of Mormon really is another testament of Jesus Christ and in it are teachings from ancient prophets in the Americas. I know that God is our literal Heavenly Father and He loves His children and that is why He prepared a way so that we could get back to Him. He has given us so much and I am so grateful for Him and all He has done. I follow His commandments because that is the way I can show Him how much I love Him and how grateful I am for Him. This church means so much to me and its teachings and doctrine have helped me so much throughout my life, especially during hard times. I know Jesus Christ is our Savior and He atoned for our sins. I love Jesus Christ and my Father in Heaven.

How I live my faith

I am on a mission for the church and I study the scriptures every day and am preparing to teach the people in DC about our church and God's plan for us. I am constantly striving to come closer to Christ and I want that same opportunity for others. I go to church every Sunday and participate in church activities. I love spending time with the people from my ward. Once a month I taught a Sunday school class for the women's organization in the ward. Sometimes when I went home for the weekends I helped my mom teach the 3-4 year old class.
