Hi I'm Crystal

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in Arizona. I come from a family of 10 children. I'm married and have two great children of my own.

About Me

I am married to a wonderful man and we together have been able to adopt two fabulous children. We have also been fostering children for the last several years. I was diagnosed with cancer almost three years ago but am doing great right now. I love to sew and to read.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the things that it teaches just makes sense to me. I feel of the love of my Savior and my Heavenly Father. I know that the family unit is important to me and that it would be important to them also. I love to hear the Prophet speak and am always amazed that his words always seem to be meant just for me. I am glad that my children can be brought up in a faith that so much supports and helps the teenagers. There is so much negative out there it is wonderful to feel the love and support from the other members around me that feel as I do. I have experienced some very difficult challenges including infertility and also cancer. I know that through these challenges I have gained a stronger conviction that the church is directed by our Savior and that he loves us and is aware of us individually. I am a Mormon because I have felt the spirit in my heart telling me that these principles are true. My prayers have been answered by a loving Father in Heaven, not always the way I hoped, but I have felt his blessings.

How I live my faith

I serve my family everyday in the best way that I can. I also am a foster mom and try to help these children that are experiencing difficult times. I teach the New Testament to the 14 year old class. I help organize and record for the visiting teaching program as well as visit specific ladies each month to help them with whatever they may need.
