Hi I'm Kristi

I'm a wife, mother , and daughter. I love the gospel with all I've got.

About Me

I am a stay-at-home mom to 2 active little boys. I am also a wife of 5 years to wonderful guy who supports me in my decision to be a member of this wonderful church. My husband is a non- member, but is investigating he church, and loves everything he hears, and the people. I am happiest when I am with my family. I love to be with friends, go on date nights, craft, and shop!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of this church because I know it is true. I was inactive for over 5 years and looking back was not happy. After I had my first son, and was diagnosed with epileptic seizures, I felt something inside that really hit me. I needed some direction,for me and my family. My husband and I started to look into some local christian churches, and tried them a few times. I never felt the spirit, and I knew what the spirit felt like. My last thought was to go back to the " mormon" church and give that a try. I asked my husband if he would be ok with that, he said yes, but that he would not be going. I went, and as I walked in those doors, I immediately felt the spirit I had been waiting so long for. I havent looked back a day since. It hasnt always been easy, but my life has been blessed beyond measure. Last July I went through the temple and received my endowments for the first time. I didnt have my husband with me, and still dont when I attend the temple but I truly know I am doing the right thing. His time will come. I love this gospel.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by beinga good example. I have learned over the years that that is the best thing you can do. Someone is always watching, and you never know when " that person" will ask you about what you believe. Since I have been back to church, I have had several people ask me what it is that makes me so happy- or why I am so different. I love that question because it gives me a perfect opportunity to share my testimony. The church is why I am so happy. It has given me perspective on who I am, where I came from and where I am going, and I love that. I enjoy serving others in and out of the church. I truly belive that service is one of the most important things we do on this earth. I have worked with 8 and 9 year old girls, doing activities each month. As well as working on goals with them to progress as young ladies. I loved that calling. I learned patience, love, service, and humility. Those girls were all so willing to do what they needed, to be better and try harder, and that inspired me. Again.... I love this gospel.
