Hi I'm Christina S.

I'm a wife, I'm a mother, I'm a daughter, I'm a friend, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a stay-at-home mom of one adorable daughter! I love being a wife and mother. I love doing anything outdoors and I love spending time with family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in a Mormon family, but when I was a young adult I married someone who was not a member of my faith. After a while, I decided to return to church- and as a result, my marriage ended. Because of the fact that I had to chose between my husband and my religion- I had to make sure that I truly believed the teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I am now married to an amazing man who I was able to marry in the Temple. I know, without a shadow of a doubt that Joseph Smith was called to restore the true gospel to the earth again. I know the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ, in addition to the Bible. I know my Heavenly Father loves and knows me. I am eternally grateful to those who were willing to sacrifice so much to restore the truth to the earth today!

How I live my faith

I attend church every Sunday, I also read scriptures (Book of Mormon & Bible) everyday. I pray. I also participate in visiting teaching- which is where I visit 3 women a month to share a gospel message and just make sure they are doing well. I live the teachings of the gospel daily so that I may be a true example of Christ.

Why is authority to perform a baptism important?

Christina S.
I think about it this way: you can't audit a business' accounts without being an accountant, you can't write someone a speeding ticket unless you are a police officer. Authority is crucial in more areas than just baptism. The difference is, authority to baptize must be eternal. The only one we know of in the scriptures who had that authority was John the Baptist. But, as Mormons, we know that authority was restored to Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdery. Show more Show less
