Hi I'm Crystal Clark

I'm a single, self-employed gal who loves to work hard, travel, make new friends, have fun, laugh often and..... I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Wow, where to start.... I am a unique individual who has a weird sense of humor. I think I'm funny, even when others do not :) I work as a self-employed hairstylist and love my job as it is my creative outlet. I come from a big family and we are all close. I grew up laughing with my family and we are still crazy when we get together. I am blessed to still have parents who are married and work hard on their relationship through the test of time and trials. I have a spoiled rotten dog, who currently loves my roommate more than me! Its funny how pets loyalties shift. I am single and have learned to love living the single life while still preparing to be a wife and mother someday. I am just me......

Why I am a Mormon

I had the divine privilege to have been raised a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. My family has been members of the church for several generations. This is a great blessing, however it is not the main reason I am a member. From a young age I have had a great love for my Savior Jesus Christ and my eternal Father in Heaven. I have always known that they love me and want what is best for me. Even through trials and what I would call the "refiners fire" I have felt loved and supported. I know there is more to this life than the everyday chaos. I know my Heavenly Father sent me to earth for a reason and distinct purpose. I know he loves me unconditionally. I know my Savior Jesus Christ atoned for my sins and died on the cross for me, his sister. I grew up in a place full of diversity in lifestyles. I have seen what alternative lifestyles can bring and the sadness, loneliness and sometimes despair it can have. I have 4 siblings and most of them are not actively participating in the church. I pray for them daily. I pray for them because I know Heavenly Father listens to my prayers. I know he loves all of us as his sons and daughters of God that we are. I know Joseph Smith was a Prophet of God. I know he saw God the Father and Jesus Christ and that he restored the true Gospel of Jesus Christ to the earth today. I know we have a Prophet on the earth today who guides and leads us in the path of righteousness. I know families can be eternal. I strive to be married in the temple and sealed to my eternal companion for eternity. I know I will see my loved ones, whom I have lost in this life, again after this life. I know they continue to watch over me. I know the Book of Mormon is true scripture and a companion to the Holy Bible. I study it for direction and answers to my lifes' struggles. I know my Savior lives and loves me. I know what true happiness is. I continue to be a mormon because it brings true happiness.

How I live my faith

I live my Faith through serving. I serve as the Relief Society President in my Young Single Adult Branch. I get the privilege of serving the single ladies with whom I attend church. It is a calling in the church, one that tests me and strengthens me beyond my comprehension. I strive to do better today than I have yesterday. I visit with these wonderful ladies, make sure they are being strengthened spiritually and that their physical and emotional needs are being met. I get to know them, befriend them, help them and most importantly I love them. I share my beliefs in actions more than words. People are always watching what others do and how they behave. I've found the people that stood out most to me in my life are the ones that lead by example, especially when they think no one is watching. I enjoy living my faith through service and take every opportunity to help in my community, my home, my work, my singles group or any other place that may have need of me. It can be serving in the soup kitchen, participating in a food drive, making clothes or care packages for natural disaster victims or simply giving someone a ride to church. I most definitely am not perfect but I try to help others and do better today than I did yesterday.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Crystal Clark
Family is everything to Mormons. They are so important to us that we strive to live a righteous life so that we can still be a family unit after this life. We believe families are forever! The family unit is divine gift from God. It is our foundation in this life. Show more Show less
