Hi I'm Grace Gardiner

I grew up in Salt Lake City. I love the mountains. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student right now, hoping to study health sciences. I love to run outside, hike and fish in the mountains with my dad, cook, eat, dance, and play music. I am the middle child, with two sisters and two brothers. My family is the most important thing to me. We love to spend time in Bear Lake, waterskiing in the day and playing board games late at night. I studied abroad in Jerusalem, where I studied the different cultures and religions there and the life of Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe in my heart that the restored gospel of Jesus Christ is true. And I know this because of the Holy Ghost. I feel the Holy Ghost when I take the Sacrament and remember Christ's Atonement, when I serve others, when I read in the Bible and the Book of Mormon, and when I pray to my Father in Heaven. The Holy Ghost not only witnesses that Christ lives and loves me, but he also offers comfort and direction. I am a Mormon because I know I am a child of our Father in Heaven, who watches over me and hears my prayers. More than anything, I love my family and want to be with them forever, and the Gospel assures me that I can.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by acting on my beliefs. I believe the Book of Mormon is true, so I try to read and study it daily. I believe in the Atonement of Jesus Christ, so I attend Sacrament Meeting each Sunday and take the Sacrament. I believe in the restored gospel, so I fulfill my church callings, such as playing the piano in church meetings. I believe in serving and uplifting others, so I try to visit and teach women in the ward each month. I believe in sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with others, so I am serving as a missionary in Ecuador for 18 months.
