Hi I'm Kristy

I'm a married mother of 3, living in California. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I come from a large tight-knit family of 3 boys and 3 girls. My parents are converts to the Church, and they are the most amazing people. We moved a lot when I was young, so I was "raised all over the United States." I currently live in California with my husband of 9 years and our three children. We have another child on the way. I love to sew, build things, read, all things water i.e., swimming, water skiing, etc. and outdoors, and most of all to be with my husband.

Why I am a Mormon

We moved all over the US growing up. Because of this I have become acquainted with all kinds of people and religions. In middle school and high school I was known for being Mormon. I believe my life's standards were well respected my those around me. I remember feeling that one of the biggest differences between me and many of my peers was my sense of direction and purpose. I was happy and very confident in knowing that I am a daughter of God, and that he knows me, and is mindful of me. I never went through a "finding myself" lost stage. I attribute this to knowing that God loves me and that the teachings of my Church are true. To put it simply, I know the Church is true. That is why I am Mormon.

How I live my faith

 I try to start and end each day with prayer. I usually pray that I can go about my day with his spirit, and that I can be mindful of what he would have me do and, how he would have to act. I try each day to follow my Saviors example.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Kristy
 No, but we do respect him as the first prophet of this dispensation. Show more Show less
