Hi I'm Christina
I'm not your typical Mormon who grew up in the faith. I'm divorced and remarried, just like over 2/3 of the adult population of the United States. I have no biological children, but I have two very handsome sons who look like their even more handsome father. I love being a Mom and a wife. I had the opportunity to attend college in England and loved learning the culture and history of that great nation. After obtaining my education, I have put it to good use working in healthcare as a secretary.
Why I am a Mormon
I was born into a Mormon family. Active as a teenager and then quit going to church as a young adult. After several years I realized something was missing from my life. I found it again when I began attending church again. Now, I am active and love teaching 10-year-olds in Primary. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is whole and complete here. I have visited many different churches and faiths with many friends, and never found a completeness that I know is here. I have yet to find a place or group where I am accepted no matter what is in my past, present or future. I love my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit has testified to me the truthfulness of the Gospel. Because of that, I can never deny that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world and my personal Savior.
Could you talk about your baptism?
I was 8 years old when I was baptized. My Mom had made me a pretty new white dress for the occasion. My family was all there. I remember being scared. I couldn't swim yet, and the baptismal font seemed so deep. But my Dad held my hand as I walked down the steps into the water and promised that he wouldn't let go. My fear vanished. (I, of course, found that I could stand up in the water.) After I was baptized and I had changed into dry clothes in the dressing room, I came out and sat in a chair surrounded by my dad and others (I don't remember anyone but him being there even though I know there were more) with their hands on my head and gave me the Gift of the Holy Ghost. It was the best birthday EVER!
How I live my faith
I am by no means perfect. I make mistakes daily. However, I do my best to be a good example to my sons and my coworkers. I let them see through my actions that I am a Christian and I strive to live my life as Christ would want me to. By calling myself a Christian, I take upon myself His name. Therefore, I must do all that I can to represent Him in every word and action in my life. I read my scriptures daily and try to keep a prayer in my heart continually. I love teaching the Valiant 10 class. These kids know so much and quite often I become the student and they are my teachers. They ask the best questions! Like "How do you know when the Holy Ghost is guiding you and it's not Satan trying to get you to do something wrong?" They make me think. And I believe that's the best way to teach someone.
