Hi I'm Krista

I'm a wife. I'm a mom. I love ice cream and the outdoors and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a wife of a handsome, blonde computer geek. A Mom to 2 handsome, noisy boys. A wanna-be athlete who is always getting injured. A college graduate and major football fan. A music lover. A big sister/bossy lady. A daughter of awesome parents. A Canadian by birth. A richly blessed and highly favored child of a loving God.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the HOPE that the fullness of the Gospel brings. Hope that I can be the kind of mother my children need me to be in a world full of trials and disappointments and darkness. Hope that I can be the kind of wife my husband needs by his side as he provides for our family and carries the responsibilities that he does. Hope for a better future, hope for eternity with my family, hope for a happier day because I know that I'm doing what I'm doing for a reason in the grand scheme of things.

How I live my faith

I organize opportunities for compassionate acts of service in my community. I believe that there is no better way to show Christ-like love for others than through service. I live honest. I work hard. I strive to care for others. I try to do what the Savior would do and let others see His light in my smile and in my actions.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Krista
For me, it is proof that God is the God of the whole earth. Of all people, regardless of location, race, color, circumstance. The Book of Mormon shows that the Lord was merciful to his prophet Lehi and saved he and his family from Jerusalem before it was destroyed, 600 years before Christ's coming. He sent them to the Promised Land, or the Americas and when Christ did come and was resurrected, he visited his "other sheep" in the Americas. This book, the Book of Mormon contains the account of that visit to the Americas, and of Lehi's people all the way up to the end of that civilization. It shows how the Lord is merciful to his people and blesses them abundantly when they are obedient, and how he leaves them to their own devices when they so choose. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe happens after we die?

Krista
 We believe that our work doesn't end here, and we will be busy doing good on the other side of the veil too! We believe that our souls will live forever in the glory we earned from our actions in this life, and that we can be together with our family. That is, for me, one of the greatest promises of this gospel- eternal families! Show more Show less

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Krista
Try it on for size! Really, you have to be willing to act. When I wanted to know if the church was true or not, I toiled for many weeks before realizing that when I am actively doing the things prescribed by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints-- when I am caring for the sick and the needy, when I am teaching my children the gospel, and reading the scriptures and saying my prayers, etc... that I am the happiest, best version of myself that I possibly can be! That I have more hope and more comfort knowing that I am on the path to eternal life with my family and an eternal state of happiness than can be found doing anything else. So if I want to be truly happy and feel peace and hope in my life, and reach my highest potential-- it's through living the teachings of this church. I've put that to the test many times throughout my life. And when I do, I feel I'm at my best, and that's how I know that this church is true. Show more Show less
