Hi I'm Christine

I'm a wife. I'm a mother. I'm a staff accountant. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest child in my family. I have 6 siblings, one sister, one half brother and 4 half sisters. I was born and raised in Tacoma, WA. I currently reside in Spanaway, WA. I went first to Tacoma Community College then to Western Washington University in Bellingham majoring in Accounting and minoring in Business Administration and Math. I joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in December 2007. I got married in October 2008 and we welcomed our first child in December 2010. I enjoy spending time with my husband and my almost 10 month old son.

Why I am a Mormon

Before I joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, I had previously looked into other faiths. I was not raised going to church, but I celebrated all the Christian holidays, Christmas and Easter. I was in college when I started to search to find a faith that was the right faith. In 2007, my now husband, a life long member of the church, introduced me to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. While he was gone to Job Corps, I started to take the lessons from the Missionaries. When challenged to read the Book of Mormon and pray to see if this Church was the true church, I did so with a heartfelt prayer in my heart. I knew then and now without a doubt in my heart that this Church is the Lord's one true church. I love being a part of His Church. This Church truly has been a blessing to my life.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith daily by striving to follow Christ's teachings, such as to love thy neighbor and forgive each other. For over 5 years now I have worked for a small business accounting firm. Each day I work, I strive to provide friendly customer service to all customers that either call in for help or come into our office for assistance with their accounting work. I also strive to give thanks to all who either provide service to my family or to those who are just simply friendly to us. My dad and my in-laws I consistently give thanks to for all they do for my husband, myself and our son on a daily basis. Living my faith also requires me to be patient, which is not one of my strongest attributes. I am consistently working to not only be patient with those around me, but even myself. Through my faith in the church, I am slowly becoming a much more patient person.
