Hi I'm Christinna

I'm a wife and stay-at-home mom. I served a mission in England. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a stay-at-home mother and I love my family! It took us over 6 years to have our son so he is our miracle. I enjoy singing in our church choir, reading, photography, cross-stitching and crafting in my spare time. I enjoy baking and cooking, trying new recipes and feeding people. I love animals and our dogs are an extension of our family. As a family we enjoy spending time on our UTV in the mountains or wherever we can get away from the hustle and bustle of life. I love to travel and see new places!

Why I am a Mormon

I'd always heard growing up that I should pray for myself to know if the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was our Saviors church upon the earth. It wasn't until I was 21 and I had a desire to serve a mission that I realized that in order for me to share my testimony of the church, the Book of Mormon and a modern prophet, I needed to know for myself that they were true. So I began praying and studying and asking Heavenly Father to let me know if these things were true. One day I was reading in the Book of Mormon in 2 Nephi 33:3, and this is what I read, "But I, Nephi, have written what I have written, and I esteem it as of great worth, and especially unto my people. For I pray continually for them by day, and mine eyes water my pillow by night, because of them; and I cry unto my God in faith, and I know that he will hear my cry." As soon as I read this passage I knew that Nephi really did live and walk upon this earth. That he loved, prayed and wept for his people. I knew the Book of Mormon was true! And because I know the Book of Mormon is true, I know that God speaks to a prophet upon the earth today and that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was restored through the prophet Joseph Smith.

How I live my faith

We live in an area where many people move in and out and we have many retirees. We participate in helping many people load and unload moving trucks, providing meals after surgeries or during times of illness. As the president of our womens' organization at church in our area, I donate much time to looking after the women, helping see that their needs are met. I occasionally teach on Sunday, help to organize family luncheons to follow funerals, and oversee service projects and activities for the women. But, I think the best way I live my faith is in my every day actions. I always strive to look for the silver lining in difficult situations. I look for my Heavenly Father's hand in my life and others, especially when facing trying times. I try to be uplifting and encouraging to others and I love to smile!
