Hi I'm Christina

I live in Arizona. I live with my twin sister and we were both were baptized on the same day. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

i currently am in college and will be graduating in just a couple weeks. there were times i thought maybe i had gotten in over my head but my twin sister reminds me that i can do it and to keep pushing forward. Since I joined the church i have felt such a difference having God back in my life. I know that when i need someone to lean on i can lean on Him. We are all children of God and i know He loves us!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a christian family. We went to church and to sunday school.. However when i got older i felt like God had forgotten us. Maybe he didnt care anymore. after all the church we went to said there were no prophets, no one left to guide us on earth. I would think about it and my heart would sink. I began checking out the churches of other faiths and it just felt like they all were missing something important. None of them felt right to me. Then one day the missionaries came by and invited us to join them at church. I didnt know much about the LDS church but i wanted to find out more. i started attending church and classes on a regular basis and so did my twin sister. We both joined the church. My sister and I were actually baptized on the same day. Now i know God hasnt forgotten us after all.. He still cares about his children! He cares so much for us that he has sent us prophets to guide us.. to reach out to us. and when i think of this it makes me cry because I finally found what i had been searching after for so long!!!! I know the bible is the word of God and so is the book of Mormon. I am so greatful to have the opportunity to be able to learn more and grow spiritually and i thank the Lord every day for it!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being obedient to what God wants from us, by being a good example to others and helping people whenever i can. i cant count the amount of times people have asked me about my beliefs and what the church is about. i love it when this happens!! i love talking to others about Jesus Christ. I invite so many people to attend church with me and even my little 6 year nephew has already started bringing his friends too. ive had the pleasure of teaching a gospel principles class and look forward to doing it again. Mostly i live my faith by sharing it with others.

What is faith?

Christina
For me faith is believing and knowing something is true even though there isnt physical evidence of it. I have faith in God, his son Jesus Christ and in the holy ghost because i can feel it in my heart that they are true. That they love us and want us to be able to live with Him again someday. Having faith makes me want to learn more and helps me walk the path in life i know the Lord wants me to take. Ive asked my little nephew who is only 6 years old, "how do you know your redeemer loves you?" and he told me he can feel it inside. I asked him how does it feel? He told me it feels warm and happy... When he told me that i wanted to cry because i know he has faith! Show more Show less
