Hi I'm Alathea Christensen

I am an average woman with a wonderful husband. We someday desire the blessing of Children. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am newly married and attending college to get a language certificate in Mandarin Chinese. I'm also looking into being a wedding planner. I have a wonderful family, and I try hard to be intelligent and to do what's right. I enjoy cooking and cleaning, weird I know, and not being rushed. I'm a hard worker, I love movies and I try to help all those around me to be happy. I enjoy joy and being with loved ones. It helps me to feel my best.  

Why I am a Mormon

I know that this is the true church with the authority to act in the name of God. Through John the Baptist, and Peter, James, and John, apostles of the Savior in Jerusalem, holders of the Priesthood in Biblical times, the Priesthood was restored and given to Joseph Smith in our day. With this Priesthood, we have the right to preform baptism and other such vital ordinances in the name and through the power of Jesus Christ himself. I can assuredly state that this is the true church of God on the earth, and that the Holy Ghost has witnessed this unto me. any and all who want to know if this is true, I admonish you with all of my being to learn what we teach, and ask our Heavenly Father, that all perfect being who cannot lie, if these things are true. He loves you. He will answer you. and you will come to know if what I say is true or not. I know this Church is true and that by following it's precepts one can become perfect and clean from the blood and sins of the world. I find confidence and comfort in knowing I am sealed to my family forever and that if I do my part, I can come to live with my family and my Heavenly Father and My Savior again someday. I relish in the thought that as long as I'm trying to do my best with a true and honest heart, I can be saved. I know that no matter what trials or illnesses or persecutions happen to me on this earth I will have a good place with my family in the eternities because of the authority and truth found in this Church. I admonish you all to learn as much as you can, because what you learn here in this life will be what you save with you in the next life ... and what saves you. "And now, if there are faults they are the mistakes of men wherefore, condemn not the things of God, that ye may be found spotless at the judgement-seat of Christ." -Quote from the Introduction to the Book of Mormon. http//lds.org/scriptures/bofm?lang=eng 

How I live my faith

Daily I read my scriptures and/or the words of the prophet. I pray, and try to bring my life more in line with God's teachings. I try to keep my covenants and promises to the best of my ability. I try to repent daily and over come my short comings and my pride. I try to not take lightly the things of serious importance. I try to find joy in every part of my life. I try to be humble and teachable and grateful. I try to have fun. I try to bless those close to me with joy and always treat them as the Savior would treat them. I try to not take what I have for granted. I try to remember others first. I try to remember the Savior in all I do. I try to be virtuous. I try to be wholesome. I try to live simply. I'm trying to be like Jesus. I love my life and the gospel. Please go to this link and select "words and music" in the left column.
