Hi I'm Christina

I grew up in rural East Texas, went to college in England and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm not your typical Mormon who grew up in the faith. I'm divorced and remarried, just like over 2/3 of the adult population of the United States. I have no biological children, but I have two very handsome sons who look like their even more handsome father. I love being a Mom and a wife. I had the opportunity to attend college in England and loved learning the culture and history of that great nation. After obtaining my education, I have put it to good use working in healthcare as a secretary.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family. Active as a teenager and then quit going to church as a young adult. After several years I realized something was missing from my life. I found it again when I began attending church again. Now, I am active and love teaching 10-year-olds in Primary. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is whole and complete here. I have visited many different churches and faiths with many friends, and never found a completeness that I know is here. I have yet to find a place or group where I am accepted no matter what is in my past, present or future. I love my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit has testified to me the truthfulness of the Gospel. Because of that, I can never deny that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world and my personal Savior.

How I live my faith

I am by no means perfect. I make mistakes daily. However, I do my best to be a good example to my sons and my coworkers. I let them see through my actions that I am a Christian and I strive to live my life as Christ would want me to. By calling myself a Christian, I take upon myself His name. Therefore, I must do all that I can to represent Him in every word and action in my life. I read my scriptures daily and try to keep a prayer in my heart continually. I love teaching the Valiant 10 class. These kids know so much and quite often I become the student and they are my teachers. They ask the best questions! Like "How do you know when the Holy Ghost is guiding you and it's not Satan trying to get you to do something wrong?" They make me think. And I believe that's the best way to teach someone.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Christina
I have personally had the opportunity to help those in need. Following Hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Ike, myself and many of my friends traveled to the affected areas to help with the cleanup process and help those in need, and no we didn't ask what church they attended. I've seen truckloads of donations taken to affected areas of food and basic necessity items that were collected by members and even donated by the Church itself. Working in healthcare, I have never seen any organization with the ability to respond as quickly as our Church has to these needs, whether it is a large disaster like a Hurricane or just someone in the neighborhood lost their house to a fire, I've seen my brothers and sisters in the Gospel come together to help those in need, regardless of their religious affiliation.
