Hi I'm Christina

I'm a Canadian, I'm a music lover, above all I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am your typical canadian who loves stereotypical canadian things, snow, curling, beavers and bacon. I love spending time with my family and friends. I enjoy nature, reading and swimming and am passionate about music and cooking. I gained a great love for Italian food after serving a full time mission in Italy.

Why I am a Mormon

I was active in the United Church when a friend of mine returned from his mission. He invited me to a church dinner and told me about how he had served the Lord. When the missionaries who were present, gave me a copy of The Book of Mormon and asked me to read it, I was immediately struck by the sub-title, "Another Testament of Jesus Christ". I began to read the book and meet with the missionaries, as I did so little by little I gained a witness that The Book of Mormon was the word of God and truely was a testament of Jesus Christ. What they offered me added to what I already believed and helped me know and understand my Saviour better. When they taught me about the plan of Salvation and what happens after this life I felt within me that their message was true, that if I live faithfully I will be reunited with my loved ones after this life. The Gospel of Jesus Christ and the Plan of Salvation that the Sister Missionaries taught me brought greater peace and joy into my life. I am a Mormon because the things I have learned since joining the Church have better helped me know who I am and just how much my Heavenly Father loves me. I am so grateful for modern day revelation, proof that God loves us just as much today as He loved those in the days of Moses and Abraham and has once again called a prophet on the Earth. The Spirit has burned within me to confirm to me that Joseph Smith was called of God to restore His church once again upon the earth with the same organization that Christ himself established. I am a Mormon because as the name of the church implies I know that it is the Church of Jesus Christ, and we are his disciples in these the latter-days. I am a Mormon because I studied and prayed to know of the truthfulness of the Gospel message and I know it is true.

How I live my faith

I recently returned from sharing my love of the Gospel and my testimony with the people of Italy and I now work with the children in the church and it is one of the most fulfilling things I have done in my life. Teaching the children the simple gospel truths taught in the Bible and The Book of Mormon, through song and helping them to learn to pray and develop their relationship with their loving Father in Heaven brings such joy and happiness to my life. Children are so pure and teach me so much as well. I am the only member of the church in my family and the best way for me to live my faith is for me to be an example to those around me. It is not always easy to stand alone in certain choices I make in my family but I know that it is worth it. My family and friends see the positives changes and the happiness and inner peace that I possess because I try my best to live according to the commandments and church standards and they respect and even admittedly admire my desires to be like Jesus, however failing they can be at times.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Matthew 7 teaches us that a good tree can not bring forth evil fruit and neither can a evil tree bring forth good fruit. Taste the fruits of the Gospel and then you can judge and know if they are good or evil. If the fuits and the things produced by the church are good then we can know that the tree or the Church is also good. Like any good scientist looking for an answer the best way to find an answer is to ask questions and conduct experiments. If you want to know if Mormonism is true, talk to missionaries, ask them questions, read The Book of Mormon, talk to other Mormons, and above all pray about it and ask Heavenly Father if it is true.
