Hi I'm Gabby Hanekamp

I love to meet people and to hear the stories that make them who they are. I also love learning about who I am. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born into a big and loving family. I have two brothers and three sisters who are all my best friends. Any of my free time is spent with them and a few close friends. I am also blessed to have been raised by such strong parents who have shown me unconditional love. I am about to graduate high school and I am preparing to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. All of my older siblings have served missions and I love to to see them come back having so much love for the people they serve. I am a shy person but I love meeting people. I really love learning about people. One of the most amazing things is meeting someone and not knowing a thing about them and getting to know why they are the way that they are and how they became who they are. Through each of the struggles I have faced in life I have been strengthened in some way and have learned so much about who I am.

Why I am a Mormon

I feel so blessed to have grown up in this church. At an early age I knew that I had a Father in Heaven who loved me. As I grew up I faced things I never thought I would. As I struggled, I had to remember the things I learned as a child and rely on prayer and faith. The knowledge I have of the gospel and the strength of my family is what helped me learn to love life. I know our Heavenly Father will always be there for us when we turn to Him for help.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to live my life in a way that everyone around me would be able to see my love for Christ and for His gospel. I try to make sure that people know that a relationship with my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ is important to me and that through knowing them I know that I am truly a child of God with a purpose and importance on this earth.
