Hi I'm Kryssie

I'm a wife, mom, sister, friend, business owner, cake addict and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My glass is always half full. Motherhood challenges and rewards me and I know that it is one of my greatest joys. I attempt to artfully balance being a woman, wife, mama, and business owner. I'm trustworthy and cherish loyalty. I'm a devoted friend and will be there when you need me. I would do anything for my family. I love being a sister and having sisters. Often I've found pretty things a result of the messes I've made. I love how my camera feels in my hands. I'm horrible at keeping journals and updating blogs but I'm trying to get better, really. I write like I talk... in rambles. I wish I used bigger words on a regular basis, if only just to seem clever. Our family is the best thing we've ever done. I make my sisters laugh, my two kids giggle and my husband swoon, well, sort of. Hubs is my best and eternal friend and companion. We own a small production company and it's a good thing we like each other because we are together 3 days a week all day and all night. We work hard to live the life we want. Yay!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I love my family so much, there is no possible way I could imagine eternity without them. I don't have to anymore. I'm a Mormon because Heavenly Father loved me so much he wanted to give me the opportunity to come to this world, make my difference and return to his presence a loving daughter of God. I spent a dozen years thinking I didn't need the gospel in my life, that my relationship with God was enough. I'm a Mormon because with this gospel and this truth, that relationship with my father in heaven is tried, tested, and ultimately strengthened every single day. I have a testimony of our Savior Jesus Christ and know that through his planned sacrifice, the atonement, I am able to return to live with my eternal family in heaven. I know that existence does not end with this life, I believe that there are many wonderful things I am meant to do and tucking my kids in each night is the Lords way of saying, I TRUST YOU. I'm a Mormon cuz it's awesome.

How I live my faith

We strive to live by example and teach our children to do the same. In trying to be like Jesus, I am open minded and non judgmental. My time with my church is freely and gladly given as is the time of so many other good examples in our life. 

Can husband and wife be together forever? Do you believe that families will live together in heaven?

My husband is my best friend... we lucked out that way. We were married for 7 years before he was baptized a member of the church. One year and one week after his baptism, we reaped the benefit of a years worth of spiritual and emotional preparation as we took our children, then 1 and 5 to the Holy House of God where we were sealed together as a family for time and all eternity. God weaves us together perfectly and wants us to live in the love of our family forever. By living worthily and keeping covenants made to God and each other, we will be together forever. One day, our children will grow up and be sealed to their eternal companion. That does not remove them from my family's bond, it only grows our family. We will all be together in this life and the next and I know that when we are separated here, it is but for a short time. Through the plan of happiness, God has made it possible for us to be together forever. Show more Show less
