Hi I'm Christina

I like to run. I love ice cream. I am a mother of boys. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

While attending college 7 years ago I met and married the man of my dreams. Funny thing is that we are still a poor college family. However, we have never known it any other way so we can't help but being happily poor! In the mix of it all we had two little boys. Boys. I never knew being a mom could be so much work but so rewarding at the same time! One of our sweet and very active little boys has a neurological disorder called Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD). SPD makes seemingly easy every day tasks very difficult for him and our family. On the bright side, our family has pulled together and grown super strong through it all. We have found that humor, books on tractors and trains, and ice cream really helps us through the rough days.

Why I am a Mormon

There are days that I literally think..."How in the world could I have gotten through today without the knowledge of why I am here, what am I doing, and where am I going?!?!" Usually these are the days that I have dealt with multiple tantrums from my children and have not had much sleep. Being a mom is hard. Being a wife is hard. Being a woman in this day and age is hard. There are very real forces out there that are trying to get us women down and make us think that we are not important and that we can do no lasting good. However, through the Gospel of Jesus Christ I know without a doubt that I am trying to do what our Heavenly Father wants me to do. I am trying to follow His plan for me and because of this, He carries me on the days that I feel I cannot carry myself. I know that He knows my name. I know that He knows my specific situation. I know He is there to listen to me cry. He is also there to help me find the good and humor in life. It seems to me that I have two choices: 1) I can go through life without knowing He is there to help me in the good and the bad or 2) I can go through life knowing that I am not alone. I choose #2.

How I live my faith

I serve on a committee that organizes help for those in need in my ward/congregation. We set up things like meals or babysitting for families when a baby is born, someone has a surgery, or they are moving in or out of the area.
