Hi I'm Ayan Giddins

I am Ayan Giddins, from Orem, Utah. I am the youngest girl in a family of seven, yet I am the middle child. And I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am Ayan Giddins, from Orem, Utah. I am the youngest girl in a family of seven, yet I am the middle child. Despite the stereotypes, I enjoy being an in-the-middle kid. With my sisters being examples to me, it gives me the opportunity to follow in their footsteps, as well as leading the way for my younger brothers. I am a dreamer. I am constantly thinking, longing, and hoping for the future. There’s just something about life and the mystery of my purpose, that gets me excited.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have been raised in a loving home with parents who have a strong testimony of this gospel. They are the foundation of my testimony. I am a Mormon because I have felt God's love and hand in my life countless times, that I can't deny it. I am a Mormon because there are true prophets on this earth. The counsel and guidance they give has blessed my life. I am a Mormon because family is the most important thing in my life, and family is central to God's plan. I am a Mormon because I know Jesus is the Christ. I know that he died and atoned for our sins. I am a Mormon because I LOVE the Book of Mormon. Every time I pick it up, the power of the stories within it bare witness to me of it's truth. I am a Mormon this gospel brings me pure joy, everlasting hope, and endless happiness. “I glory in my Jesus” (2 Nephi 33:6)

How I live my faith

I have been fortunate enough to fulfill many callings in the church. Namely: I've served in leadership callings within the Young Women's program, a member on the Stake Youth Committee, and I am currently serving as the FHE Coordinator for my YSA Ward! I love my callings; past, present, AND future. I find so much joy in them :)
