Hi I'm Christine

I'm a Californian, a nursing student, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a nursing student, a californian and a happy member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints!

Why I am a Mormon

I am and stay a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I find so much happiness and peace in my life as I live in this church. The guidance and strength I get from the Book of Mormon and teachings of this church help me be a happy and optimistic person. There are so many difficult challenges that I face in my life, and being at school makes it harder to go through these difficulties on my own. With this Church, I KNOW that I am never alone, and that I have my Savior, Jesus Christ, who knows what I am going through and is always here for me. Because he died for me and for every sin I would commit, every sickness I would feel and every heartache I would experience, he knows exactly what I go through everyday and loves me. I am able to receive comfort in all times of my life through prayer. I can pray to ask for comfort and strength in everything in my life from asking for help to remember what I studied for a test, to simply ask for courage to get through a hard day. My Savior wants to help me and He does everyday. Also, through this church, I know my purpose in this life. I am able to know that I have a loving Heavenly Father, God, who cares for me and only wants me to succeed. I know that there is a plan for me, and that life doesn't simply end at the grave. I know that I can be with my amazing family forever and continue my relationships with them for eternity.

How I live my faith

I am a sunday school teacher and I teach Old Testament. Many sundays, I have the opportunity to study the Old Testament in depth and teach a class where I share what I learned from the story and my testimony of the principles I learned and believe in.
