Hi I'm Christina

I am a daughter, mother, and a Cosmetologist. Spring is my favorite season. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

One of my favorite hobbies is Genealogy and helping others discover their ancestors .I joined the church in October of 2010 and it was the best decision I have ever made. The Book of Mormon has brought blessings into my life and I love to share The Gospel of Jesus Christ with my family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I ask God to help me to know which church my children and I should join. A couple of weeks later, a co-worker invited me to have dinner with her and the missionaries from their church. My co-worker had no idea that I was looking for a church to join. I took the missionary discussions and agreed to be baptized 3 weeks later. It is the best decision I have ever made!

How I live my faith

I am the second counselor in the Young Women's organization. I teach the young women of our church The Gospel of Jesus Christ. I strive to live the Gospel, which means I do my best to keep the commandments, attend my church meetings, and try to be a good citizen.

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

Christina
God has called prophets to lead His Church in our day, just as He did anciently. The current prophet and President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is Thomas S. Monson. He is assisted by two counselors—Henry B. Eyring and Dieter F. Uctdorf. Together, they make up the First Presidency of the Church (much like Peter, James, and John after Christ’s death). All members of the First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve Apostles are apostles and prophets. The current Apostles are: Boyd K. Packer L. Tom Perry Russell M. Nelson Dallin H. Oaks M. Russell Ballard Richard G. Scott Robert D. Hales Jeffrey R. Holland David A. Bednar Quentin L. Cook D. Todd Christofferson Neil L. Andersen Show more Show less

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

Christina
Family relationships can last forever—not just for this life. Just as some of life’s sweetest joys can come through family associations, the loss of a beloved family member can be a source of our deepest sorrows. Jesus Christ gave power to His disciples to seal families together forever when He said, “And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven” (Matthew 16:19). Death does not need to be the end of our relationships with cherished loved ones. The Lord revealed to Joseph Smith that the “same sociality which exists among us here will exist among us there [in eternity], only it will be coupled with eternal glory" (Doctrine and Covenants 130:2). Family members who accept the Atonement of Jesus Christ and follow His example can be together forever through sacred ordinances performed in God’s holy temples. These ordinances seal a husband and wife together for all eternity and children to their parents as an eternal family. Show more Show less
