Hi I'm Crysi

I love my family, the gospel, & serving the Lord. I love music & laughter. I am a daughter, sister, aunt & friend, & I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a 25 year old optimistic and outgoing people person. I love people. I love to meet new people, and I love to be surrounded by my friends and family. From the time I was a little girl I have always sought out people and befriended them. I love to teach...I worked as an instructional assistant with children with severe disabilities, up until I decided to serve a full-time mission, in the Idaho Boise Mission! I love my Idaho family. I love people of all ages and have had many opportunities to teach and learn at the feet of a variety of people. I love to sing, act, and play the flute. I also enjoy hiking, biking, fishing, camping, and just being outdoors with my friends and family. I love life!

Why I am a Mormon

My parents taught me from the time I was very young to love the gospel with all my heart. As I grew up and embarked on my own discovery of what is true, I came to know for myself that what my parents had taught me all along was true. I read the Book of Mormon and prayed about it, I went to church every sunday and pondered the things I was taught and the way it made me feel, and I prayed to my Heavenly Father to KNOW for a surety that these things are true. The gospel of Jesus Christ has changed my life forever and that is Why I am a Mormon. 

How I live my faith

Faith is a principle of power and action. I live my faith by the choices I make each and every day. From reading the scriptures and saying my prayers, to the things I choose to say and do. Faith changes the way I interact with the people around me, and I live my faith as I strive to share it with those around me each and every day. I show my faith by being a friend, a part of a wonderful family, and by sharing the gospel with all I come in contact with.

Do Mormons regard the Bible as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Yes, We Believe that the Bible contains, as does the Book of Mormon, the fulness of the Gospel. Through time there are certain things in the Bible that have been changed, but We believe that the Bible is the Word of God as far as it is translated correctly, and that with the Book of Mormon Another Testament of Jesus Christ they work together as volumes of Holy Scripture.  Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

Our purpose for this life on earth is to prove that we are willing to follow God's plan for us so that we can return to live with him again. That process starts by having faith in him and being willing to learn more about his plan through studying the Book of Mormon and the Plan of Happiness.  Show more Show less

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Faith is like a seed, if planted it will grow. The nourishment for our seed of Faith is obedience and study of the principles of the gospel, and just as we nourish any plant, it will grow. Faith is something you have to practice, it doesn't come with circumstance or situations, and if you ignore it, it will die. We have to constantly nourish our faith, cherish it, treasure it, and live it. Show more Show less
