Hi I'm Gloria Avis

I live in Utah, I have always been an active member of the "Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints" It has blessed my life.

About Me

I married my husband in the Salt Lake Temple and we have 5 wonderful children. My husband/my eternal companion, passed away recently and I felt this would be a good time to serve an LDS mission. I have always been a care giver starting with my husband who had multiply health problems. Then through out my life I worked in many health facilities and home care. Giving compassionate, loving service has brought me joy and happiness through out my life. One of my greatest blessings has been my children, grandchildren, and great grand children.

Why I am a Mormon

I am grateful for my life and the opportunity to live on this earth and learn so many wonderful things. The greatest thing in my life is my faith in Jesus Christ and in the plan our Heavenly Father has for each of us. I know if I live faithful an keep his commandments I will live with my husband and family through out all eternity.

How I live my faith

I lived in a very loving and happy home. However my father was not a member of "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints" so out family was unable to go to the temple and be sealed for eternity. I was determined I would find a LDS man to take me to the temple and be sealed for time and all eternity. I served in my church starting at the age of 11. Teaching the young children for 22 years. Teaching music, leading music and choirs. Taught the young women and women of the church. I served in the LDS temples in many capacities. Due to my faith I have now made the decision to serve a mission, the Missouri, Independence Mission. Because of my numerous choices and numerous positions in the church my faith has grown.
