Hi I'm Gretchen

I am from upstate New York. I am a student at USU. I'm a hot air balloon pilot. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I'm from upstate New York (No, not the city) and I'm currently attending school in Utah, majoring in Economics. I'm an avid cyclist and I have the best job ever working at the bike shop on campus. I love traveling and languages. I also love to play music. I'm a hot air balloon pilot, which is a lot of fun. I'm a nerd and reading is my biggest past-time.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because it makes so much sense. My ancestors were some of the first members of the church and they made righteous choices that have benefited me down to this very day. I know that their actions rewarded me and put me into better circumstances. Whenever I have a question, I know where to turn and the gospel brings so much joy into my life.

How I live my faith

It's been difficult coming to college early, but the ward I'm in is really great. They've all been very welcoming. I try to live my best everyday, being nice to people and helping people out when I can. I try to study the gospel regularly and I love learning about my Savior and what he's done. I usually play piano or organ in my branch and visit the sisters I'm assigned to teach. I try to show my love for them in whatever way I can.
