Hi I'm Ingrid Gubler

I grew up in Las Vegas. I am currently a BYU student studying elementary education. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I love to run! I run almost every day and train for half marathons. I did cross country and track in high school. I am currently a student studying elementary education. I love kids and I would love to be a fourth grade teacher. I volunteer at an elementary school every week and help out the teacher. I will be leaving for an LDS mission for a year and a half in Portugal. I am very excited to serve the Lord and his children.

Why I am a Mormon

I love being a member of Christ's church! I love it because I have come to know my Father in Heaven and Savior, Jesus Christ through daily prayer, scripture study, and journal writing. I have come to know that they love me and that we are all his children. I love the church because I can go each Sunday and feel their presence, I can feel at peace and be reminded of the strength that they give me to go throughout my daily life with peace and joy. I love being reminded of my Savior's sacrifice for me each Sunday and knowing that I can improve and leave church a better person. I get to be surrounded by other members of the church and leaders that care about and love you. We look out for each other. I get to be a part of something bigger than myself. The church gives many opportunities for you to serve and for others to serve you. The love of Christ is prominent in all that happens in the church and it teaches me how to become more like my Savior and it brings me closer to my Savior and Father in Heaven, and that is the main reason that I love this gospel. I am so thankful I have a church that brings me closer to my Father and Savior and allows me to love others better because I feel my Father's love for them.

How I live my faith

I spend time with my younger siblings. I volunteer at an elementary school once a week and help out the teacher there. I love helping them learn and hearing their funny stories they have to tell me. I plan, prepare, and teach lessons about how to be a more faithful woman today to the women at church once a month on Sunday.
