Hi I'm Kristina

I'm a Mormon and I love it!

About Me

I am married to a wonderful husband. We recently were sealed in the Twin Falls Idaho Temple on March 17, 2012. I love to be creative and I enjoy the beauty of the outdoors. I am a volunteer at a local hospital. I like to sing and care for infants.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up going to church since I was a baby. I would have to say that my parents are a big reason why I am a Mormon. Even though my parents raised me in the church, I am a Mormon because I choose to be. I continue to be a Mormon because it brings me happiness. Life is not always easy but I guess it's not meant to be. Having the church in my life makes it easier.

How I live my faith

I try to do the best I can. There are things I do everyday that help me live my faith. I kneel down in prayer and talk to God. He knows me better than anyone else. He does hear and answer prayers. I also read the scriptures and attend church as often as I can to learn more. There is always more to learn. I live my faith more fully by applying what I learn into my life.

Why do Mormons perform baptisms for the dead?

Kristina
This question may not make since and may be hard to understand. I will try to explain it the best I can. We do baptisms for the dead because there is life after death. People who lived on earth may not have had the chance to be baptized under the right priesthood authority the Lord's way. Doing baptisms in the temple for them allows them the oppourtunity to accept or reject it for themselves. Baptism is something that is needed and it is a saving ordinance. The Lord has provided a way for His children to have this saving ordinance done for them. It is possible for His children who died to accept the baptism done in their behalf, but it is ultimately up to them if they choose to accept it or not. Show more Show less
