Hi I'm Crystal Rita

I'm married, I'm not pregnant and I'm Mormon.

About Me

I've got a beautiful baby boy and he is just about to be potty trained! I just finished a college degree and am pretty excited about it. I got married in October of 2009 and Life is good! I love soccer, I love swimming, I love to be around people and I love to be outside. I manage the apartment complex that we live in so that we can save a bit of money while my husband goes back to school. It's not the easiest job in the world, but Hey, you gotta do what you gotta do, right?

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are both members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, so I was raised Mormon. Even though this is the case, I wouldn't say that that's WHY I am Mormon. When I was a kid, I was taught to live the gospel of Jesus Christ. That's just how it was. We went to church every Sunday and I was expected to live the Latter-day Saint life. I was mostly a good kid, just the usual types of kid trouble that a little girl could get in, but it wasn't till I was older that I figured out why I am a Mormon. I am a Mormon because God has a plan for you and for me. He gave us the way to return to him and that way is through His Son, Jesus Christ. This is the Church of Jesus Christ and That's why I'm a Mormon. I know that this church is part of the plan for me and for you to get back to live with our Father. I have been figuring this out little by little over my past twenty some years of life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith the best that I can every day of my life. I know it's absolutely not possible for me to be perfect, but what the heck, I can try, can't I? After falling short day after day, you'd think that I would just quit, but something inside me knows that Heavenly Father just asks that we do our best and that when we fail that we just keep on keeping on. Faith is an action principle. You can't just say you have faith, you have to do faith; be faithful. So, how do I live my faith? I live my faith by never giving up.
