Hi I'm Krista

I have a loving husband & a sweet new baby. I love spending time with my family. I am the happiest I have ever been. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a full time mom to a beautiful new baby boy. I go to school part time hoping to someday get my cpa. My husband goes to school full time in an accelerated program. Even though school is very time consuming and difficult for him, he always finds time to spend with me and our little boy. He also helps out so much even though he is tired and stressed out. He is such a sweetheart. My love for him has grown so much over the past few years that we have dated and been married. It was a twisty, bumpy road to get to where I am at. I lost my way once in a while, but I found that if I just put my trust in the Lord Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father I would be lead to a better place. I am the happiest I have ever been and I know that if I continue to follow the commandments that it will only get better.

Why I am a Mormon

Like I stated earlier I have not always known who I was or where I was going. I grew up LDS and I always knew the chruch was true, but I never practiced or knew what it really meant to be "Mormon". I didn't pray from the age of 10 to the age of 21. I went to church until I moved out of my parents house, but afer that I stoped. I won't go into details but I was no longer following the clear, smooth path, as I like to call it. I went off a side path that was bumpy, uphill, and full of obsticles that had me stepping on thorns or scraping my knees. I am LDS (AKA Mormom) because I knew that what I was doing would never bring me happiness and that I needed to repent and go back to church. The reason I stoped praying was because I didn't believe that Heavenly Father would answer my prayers and that it was pointless to waste my time. When I started to pray again, more than a decade later, I found that what I thought for so many years was completely wrong. When I prayed again, I felt in my heart the Holy Ghost testify to me how much Heavenly Father loves me and that He wants to help me with my concerns and my sorrows and He wants me to tell him about what is going on in my life, what I am thankful for, what I need, and what I am sorry about. Through everything I have gained a testimony that no matter what has happened in my life, He wants to hear me talk to Him about it because He loves me, and He wants to hear from me always. It's like having a very loving Father, that we cannot see, who loves us perfectly, more than our Father on this earth could ever love us. He always knows what is going on, but He still wants us to talk to Him about it. I am LDS becasuse I know that it's the only true Religion. I am LDS because being so makes me happy.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by showing others I love them . I try to serve Heavenly Father by helping others. I love to do charitable work because it makes me feel closer to Heavenly Fahter and Jesus Christ. When I do things for other people I feel undescribably happy. I know that I am doing my brother or sister a service that need and they will be very thankful for. I feel like I am fulfilling my purpose in life. I wish for the opportunity to be a big contributor in a charity some day. I want to help abused women and children to be able to get away from their situation by giving them means to live with out the opression they face where they live. I feel like that, other than being a wife and mother, helping these women and children have a better and happy life is another calling in my life that I want to desparately fulfill. On Sundays I taught 4 and 5 year olds during Sunday School. I liked to teach the children who Heavenly Father is and that he loves them.
