Hi I'm Chrissy

Student. Social Butterfly. Lover and a Fighter. Mormon.

About Me

Hey there!!! My name is Chrissy and I grew up in California. I love the sun, sand on the other hand.... not so much. I've lived there with my amazing family that consists of My beautiful mom, my hilarious dad, my brother who is my best friend, and my massive moose of a dog. I grew up trying every sport in the book and ended up with a major love for Dirt-biking and Chinese Kickboxing. You can say I'm somewhat of a spit fire... and I would say I'm my fathers daughter. Im a student at college studying elementary education. I found out how much I love teaching kids when I was a martial arts instructor for children. I love to have fun and you can bet you will always see my with a smile.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a family that were already members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day saints but it wasn't until my senior year of high school that I started to live like a mormon. It was pretty easy for a girl to get wrapped up in the world and be distracted by the things around me rather than my faith but when I started to look towards the REAL source of happiness, my Heavenly Father, that was when I truely began to live. I was always aware that God was watching over me and that Jesus Christ paved the pathway back to Heavenly father but there is a big difference between knowing the Gospel and living it. I began to live it. I've always had a strong love of my savior but I was lazy in just living it. Actions speak louder than words and it finally clicked for me, I was going to live in a way that God would know I love him. By the way I cherished his guidance through the scriptures, by the way I served his children, by the way I followed his commandments. This seems the testimony of any Christian right? Then why be mormon you might ask. Well I can honestly tell you in my quest to live right and come closer to Christ, I've found all that I know to be right in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. As I've read from the Book of Mormon and Bible together I've come to such a clarity and spiritual awareness that I know came only from God. He would never lead me astray or make me feel SO right about anything wrong and as I've lived a mormon life I can feel the truth of it. Just like in John 7:17 "If any man will do his will, he shall know of the docrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself." I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day saints is true because I put it to the test and lived it and I know of the doctrine. I know Joseph Smith was the Prophet who restored the Chuch Jesus Christ himself lead while on the earth because I've lived the Gospel that was given him by God. I know that there is a living Prophet, Thomas S. Monson, because I've followed his counsel. I know that Jesus is the Christ because I've lived abiding by his word and not abiding by his word and I can tell you its night and Day. I know of His doctrine and I cannot deny the truth of it. Try for yourself; read the Book of Mormon, live the Doctrine and ask God if its true. You'll get your answer by the way the spirit makes you feel. Just like I did.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following Christ's example. I try to give of myself as he did. Whether its by helping an older woman in wal-mart trying to figure out her digital camera. Or by voulenteering to clean up a childrens park. I pray for opportunities to serve Gods children and get up and go to work.  Im currently serving a full time mission In the Georgia Atlanta Mission and I'm lovin' every minute of it! 

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Chrissy
Of course! Think about it. Im sure it was hard for people back then to believe Moses was called of God. So its understandable to be sceptical but I promise you that if you listen to the Prophet, Thomas S. Monson, and follow his direction you WILL live a happier life. We need God's direction now more than ever before. Show more Show less

What is the priesthood?

Chrissy
Power Given to man to act in God's name. The same power that was given to prophets of Old such as Moses or Noah. Show more Show less
