Hi I'm Kristina

I'm a wife and a busy stay at home mother of 3. I love to read, travel and spend time with family and friends. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love my job of being a wife and mother. I have been married for 6 1/2 years to my high school sweetheart and best friend. Staying home and raising my children is busy and challenging, but I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. I graduated from BYU with a degree in elementary education and taught 6th grade for one year before my oldest daughter was born. I really loved being in the classroom and am grateful for the skills I learned as I try to put them to use with my own children. I love music, reading, eating and exploring new places. More than anything I love spending time with my family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am so grateful for the values and principles that I learned growing up. I've had a wonderful life and have had experiences where I've been able to learn for myself that this is the true Gospel of Jesus Christ. I am far from perfect but through my Savior I can learn how to overcome my weaknesses and strive to be better each and every day. I love having the Gospel in my life because it puts everything into perspective for me and helps me make each decision. The strength that I gain from daily prayer and scripture study keeps me going and helps me do my best as wife and mother. I'm so grateful for the knowledge of Eternal Families and the emphasis that our faith puts on the family. I know that my family can be together forever.

How I live my faith

I am striving to do the best I can each day. More than anything I'm striving to teach my children to love and follow our Savior and gain strength from reading the scriptures and daily prayer. We attend church each week as a family and during that time my husband and I are able to spend time teaching the 16 and 17 year old youth Sunday School class where we are studying the Bible with them. I'm grateful for that opportunity to learn, teach and associate with those kids. I try to take any opportunity that I have to serve and hope that my children will learn to love helping others. I try to live what I believe each day through my words, actions, dress and associations with others.
