Hi I'm Kristina

I've lived in 8 states, but now live in California. I'm a new mom. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been married for 9 years. We moved around a lot for my husband's work so it was difficult for me to finish my degree. It took 7 years, but I finally finished with a Bachelor's in Liberal Arts. We recently welcomed our first child,a boy, into our lives. He has been such a joy,and makes all the trials to get him here worth it.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family who actively lived the gospel. As a child I trusted in my parent's testimony that the gospel was true. It wasn't until my teenage years that I began to search out if the gospel was true. I had read from the scriptures with my family before, but never prayed to know if it was true. After finishing reading the Book of Mormon I prayed to know for myself if it was true. I felt that it was true, but that I had always known that it was. It was all the little spiritual moments throughout my life that continually strengthened my testimony, whither it was the calm peace I felt after my baptism or the way the spirit would burn when singing about the Savior. I know that this church is true, and that us why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

For the past two years I have taught the 16-17 year old girls. It has been a wonderful experience to see their testimonies build and strengthen. Girl's Camp is a camp that the 12-17 year old girls attend each year. It is a little less than a week of fun, camping, and building friendships and testimonies. I attended as a girl, but it was a wonderful experiences as a leader. I could only attend for a few days, but was able to be a part of their testimony meeting. This was a chance for all the girls and leaders to share with each other what they believed to be true and what they had loved most about being together at Girl's Camp. These sweet girls shared such wonderful testimonies and desires to continue to be better people. That is what I love most about the gospel. It teaches us to continue to strive to be better. It doesn't mean you have to perfect because everyone makes mistakes, but you build each other up and try to live the best life you can.
