Hi I'm Kristina
I grew up in Oklahoma and moved to Salt Lake City when I was in High School. I was part of the Mormon Youth Orchestra and taught elementary school orchestra while still in high school. I went to Brigham Young University and got a degree in teaching English as a second language. I have traveled around the world helping people learn how to use technology to teach English.
Why I am a Mormon
I was born a member of this church but had to gain my own belief that it is true. Through reading the Book of Mormon and praying to know if it is true, and as I have tried to live more of the teachings of Jesus Christ each day, I have come to know for myself that the Book of Mormon is true, that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, the Church of Jesus Christ has been restored today to the earth just as was when Christ was on the earth, and that there is a prophet of God on the earth today. I am grateful for the comfort and strength I have found in my challenges as I have prayed and searched for answers in the scriptures. I know the Lord answers our prayers and guides our steps. I know that he speaks to living apostles and prophets today. I know He lives and love us and has prepared a way for us to come back to Him and live with Him and our families forever. This testimony of the reality of the Savior gives me peace and guidance and strength. This is the very core of who I am. To me it is truth.
How I live my faith
I play the organ in church Sunday as well as accompany our ward choir. I am also assigned to visit a number of women in our congregation each month to make sure they are taken care of and to help support them in any way I can. My testimony of Jesus Christ influences everything I do. I try each day to be more like Him and am so grateful for the knowledge that I am a daughter of God. Knowing that I can be with my family forever helps me try and find ways to a blessing to them each day. I attend the temple and enjoy researching my family history.
