Hi I'm Christine

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a 26-year-old wife, mother, and college graduate. My favorites smells are desert rain and skunk. My idea of a perfect day is staying home organizing, blogging, eating ice cream, playing with my daughter, and beating my husband in Monopoly Deal or Mario Kart. I enjoy sewing, reading children's literature, and am an avid journal writer. My favorite quote that I try to live my life by is, 'Whatever you are, be a good one.' --Abraham Lincoln. Life is good and I have been so blessed!

Why I am a Mormon

I had the privilege of growing up in a Mormon family. I was taught principles and values that have shaped who I am today. There was a time when I was a Mormon just because that's all I'd ever known. It's how I was raised. And although I'm grateful I never had to search for the truth there came a time in my life when I needed to know for myself if it was true and if I believed it. In a way, I needed to be converted. For me it wasn't one big amazing moment or story with a beginning, middle, and end. It was several small things over time that built my testimony so strong I can never deny that I know this is God's church, the only true church on earth today. Today I'm still strengthening that testimony. I know that God lives and that He loves and knows each and every one of us. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and I believe anyone can know for themselves if they will read it truly seeking to know. I know that the church was restored through Joseph Smith as was the priesthood, which is the power of God. And because of that priesthood power we are able to know that this is literally God's church and is the only true church today. I know that families and marriages are forever and last beyond this mortal world.

How I live my faith

I have the opportunity to serve the women in my ward. I, along with another girl, visit two girls every month just to see how they are doing and see if they have any needs that we can help them with. We share an uplifting message as well to help encourage and support them. Throughout the month we also look for ways to help and serve these girls and at least once a month I usually babysit so one of the girls can go out on dates with her husband. Having a daughter of my own and being 'poor college students' I realize how nice it is to have someone willing to babysit for free when you already have so little to spend on a date night. Sometimes it's the little things that make the biggest difference. I love the visiting teaching program and have a very strong testimony of its purpose.
