Hi I'm Kristi Moon

I work. I play. I'm loving life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am in the middle of my Master's degree in Communicative Disorders and I'm working towards becoming a Speech Pathologist. I work in the field currently as a researcher and love almost every minute of it. I am busy with work, church, family and friends. When I find extra time I love hiking and golfing or watching movies. I also enjoy volunteering and I've spent many hours teaching English to refugees and even had the opportunity to go to Africa and teach English there at an orphanage and teach English in Hungary while I was a missionary there!

Why I am a Mormon

My family has been Mormon for many generations now and I've discovered for myself why they chose to be Mormon. I've lived a charmed life one might say and that is because of obedience to God's commandment's and have had Him continually guiding me. Life hasn't always been perfectly peachy and through those tougher times I have used what my parents taught me about prayer and searching the scriptures to find peace, direction and most importantly a true testimony of Jesus Christ. I know that He knows me personally and is my Savior. I know that this is Christ's church and following His commandment's and leader's is they only way I can reach my goal of living with Him again.

How I live my faith

I go about life in a pretty normal way at first glance. I go to school and work, I help around the house. As I go about my days though I try to look for opportunities to serve and try to be kind and understanding with those around me, like I imagine Christ would do. Daily I read the scriptures and pray several times, this is how I find peace and hope in my life. Every Monday night I join in "family home evening" as a child this meant a lesson from the scriptures and games with my family but now that I'm older I meet with other singles and we do the same thing. I attend other church activities and service opportunities whenever I can. Most people at church have some sort of responsibility. I have responsibilities over a number of women in my area. I visit a few every month to make sure they are spiritually fed and physically and emotionally doing well. I also check in with a number of sisters to see how things went when they visited other sisters. I try to help people see what a happy person I am and give credit to God for all the good in my life.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Kristi Moon
I can tell you what I did while I was serving as a missionary in Hungary. Before we visited someone's home we prayed about what we should teach the family and followed the impressions we received so it was a unique message to every family. Most commonly we shared about how Christ's church as He organized it on the Earth has been restored again. Christ has once again organized His church with a prophet, apostles, priesthood, and revelation. We addressed how the Book of Mormon was translated by the first prophet in our day, this book is how we gained our nickname. It is a collection of scriptures written by various prophets as they taught about Christ. Mormon was a prophet who compiled it anciently. We would talk about Christ's gospel and what He expects us to do in this life and why. Another topic we addressed commonly was God's plan of salvation. This is the plan that he has for each of us and teaches that we lived with Him before, our purpose on Earth, and our potential in the life to come and how Christ is the central enabler of that plan. We then tied our message into how it helps us in our lives and how it helps our families. There are so many important but unfamiliar things to share with people its hard to know exactly what the missionaries will say but it will be a message God, your Heavenly Father, wants you to hear. I'd encourage you to listen to what they say and please ask questions and clarify anything you don't understand. This is something you need to hear! Show more Show less
