Hi I'm Chris

I'm a Mormon. I have been a member my whole life. I am a mother of 7 and grandmother of 8.

About Me

I love to read books. I've read over 1,000 books. I get to tend my granddaughter 2 days a week! I like doing family history research. I love little children and love serving in the nursery in my ward.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the LDS church. I read the Book of Mormon the first time when I was 8 years old. It is a powerful book. I have read it 100s of times and every time I learn something new. I feel the love that My Heavenly Father has for me when I read it. My testimony that He lives and that His Son, Jesus Christ lives and loves me grows as I read it and try to live the way it teaches me to live. I know that this special book is here for me to read, because of the boy, Joseph Smith. I know he was called of God to translate the Book of Mormon and to re-establish the church of Jesus Christ on the earth.

How I live my faith

I try to love and serve my family, neighbors and others I see in need. I love serving in the Nursery. This is the class for the 18 months to 3 year olds in our ward. I teach them simple truths about God. I teach them to sing songs and do finger plays. I help them to feel safe and loved while their parents attend their adult classes. I love each of them. When they are sitting in a half circle singing and playing with me I feel so close to My Heavenly Father. I know that He loves each of them just like I do.

How does the Church finance its operations?

Chris
All faithful member of the church pay tithing or 10% of our income to the church. This not only takes care of the physical facilities, but helps with the many programs in the church. The blessing is that by showing our faith by paying an honest tithing we are blessed spiritually and financially. That doesn't mean that we are rich, but we always have what we need to get by1 Show more Show less

What is the Book of Mormon?

Chris
An ancient record of people who left Jerusalem during the time of the prophet Jerimiah and came to the American continent. This record was found and translated by Joseph Smith with God's help and direction. It is a strong second witness to the Bible of Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
