Hi I'm Christine

I'm a wife. I'm a graduate student. I am pretty dang silly sometimes and I'm a Mormon:)

About Me

I grew up in Southern California and spent a lot of my childhood outside. Being outside is still one of my favorite things to do. I love traveling to visit family and friends. I love people so much and was once told that when I do something I do it with all of my heart. I think that is pretty true, though sometimes I do pretty silly things with all my heart too (that can backfire:)). I also really really love karaoke. I am not the best singer but man do I love trying!! I absolutely love kids and am studying play therapy in graduate school. I hope to help children and adolescents who have experienced trauma. I am also studying couples and family therapy. Working to strengthen and heal families is my ultimate goal.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I feel with all of my heart that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints brings me closer to Jesus Christ and offers me understanding about what this life is for and how to find the greatest joy possible. Being a Mormon is not always the easiest thing to be, especially when critics seem to misunderstand doctrine and people have false ideas of what I believe. Even when it is hard to stand up for what I know is right, I do it because I know that the church I belong to is Christ's church and the doctrines taught in it are true. When I stand for what I believe I stand for Christ. After all He has done for me, it is the least I can do.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by being nonjudgmental and loving and serving people wherever they are and wherever they come from. I try to live so that when people find out I am a Mormon, they can easily see that Mormons are Christian. I also live my faith by working to improve myself everyday so that I can become the best me I can be and the most help to those around me.
