Hi I'm Krystina

I'm funny, out going and love to spend time with my family, doing the fun crazy things of life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love photos, taking and sharing. I love volleyball, well sports in general. I love the beach and riding motorcycles with my little brother, and shopping with my sister. I love plants, how they look and all that they do for us. I’m fun loving and a little silly at times, but hey, who isn’t?

Why I am a Mormon

Well at first I should state that I was born into the Church, but growing up it wasn't a big part of my life just a routine of sorts. We would just go when it was convenient for us. It was more of just a Sunday thing. It wasn’t a big part of my life, but for some reason, which I can see now years down the road, I was always asked to do things for the church. I had almost always had responsibilities that in a way made me feel obligated to come to church. Like most things in life it was a big challenge for me to make that 45-60 minute drive, even thought it was just once a week. But I can say now, having looked back, it changed my life. It wasn't until I went to college that I learned what I really had. My life wasn't a cakewalk but it wasn't the pits either. When I went to college what seemed to be my life came crumbling to the ground and I didn't know where to go. My parents, who had been married for 20 years filed for divorce the same month I left to go to school. They had been separated for about 2 weeks before I had even found out anything was going wrong. My little brother and sister were still living at home, and I being 8 hours away, felt like I had abandoned then. I was hurting for my family, I felt like I had nowhere to go. I had just moved to a place where I only knew a handful of people, none of them understanding what I was going through. I felt so alone, so empty, just so blah. So I turned to one thing that had really remained constant in my life, the Church. No matter what season, year or where I had wandered, the Church was always there for me to come back to. So when life fell apart, it was the one thing that I had that was solid or consistent, the one thing that I had to hold on to. The one thing that didn’t leave me, or change because I moved across the state it was still there, just for me. When I walked into the church building after my life changed, I had this overwhelming feeling of peace and love, like yep, this is what I was looking for. From there I began to become more of a Gospel learner, I started off slow, I have a habit of biting off more than I can chew. I didn't want to do that as I was making the Gospel a real part of my life. It took me a lot of time and a lot of baby steps. But as time progressed I began to make changes in my life, changes that were going to make me better, help me to feel of my Saviors love for me and those I love. I began to see a different person, one who I actually liked, one who was OK, becoming good, and wanted to become better as time progressed. My life was changing for the better. Once I let the Gospel become part of who I am, my life changed and I saw it. I haven’t received any great beams of light from heaven, I haven’t seen angels, but I have felt my Heavenly Father’s hand in my life, I have felt his love. And it has been threw the Savior Jesus Christ that I am able to make it through what I have gone through in my past, and what I face in the future. That's why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Right now I live my faith by serving the Lord, specifically, I'm serving a Mission in the Southern States. Helping those around me learn about the Restored Gospel Of Jesus Christ. When I'm at home I typically help teach in church classes and help the sisters with anything I can do in whatever ward I'm.
