Hi I'm Krista

I am strong, I have a purpose, and I am Mormon.

About Me

I am a 24 year old university student from Edmonton, Alberta Canada who absolutely loves her family! I am blessed to have two handsome nephews named Jayden (4) and Ethan (2 months), two boys who are able to make me smile on any given day. I am a dreamer and I believe anything and everything is possible with a little bit of faith! I love to laugh, I love to make people laugh and I always try to love first over everything. Two of the most important truths in life I have learned are, I am a daughter of Heavenly Father who knows me personally and I have a Saviour who has given me full accesses to the Atonement so I can have the strength I need to survive on what I think are my worst days. The atonement IS REAL and it is for everyone!

Why I am a Mormon

This is Christ's true church with the fullness of the gospel and I believe Joseph Smith Jr. is a true prophet of God. My life has changed tremendously after joining The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and I know it's because now more than ever I feel my Saviour's hands in my life. So many questions like; "Where did I come from?... What happens after death?... Will I see my deceased family members again?" all have been answered by The Book of Mormon and the doctrine that is taught by the church. When I read my scriptures and listen to church leaders speak I can feel the spirit talk to me in ways I have never felt before. I know that the Bible and the Book of Mormon go hand in hand and only compliment one another. I receive direct counselling for my own trials because according to God I am not a number and he knows my name specifically and he talks to me through the power of the Holy Ghost. Our church is centred around family and Christ, when I have these two things I know I will be okay no matter what trial I am faced with. I have read, I have prayed and I have gotten an answer from my Heavenly Father. He is telling me that I am exactly where I need to be and that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints will never lead my astray, but will lead me back home to the kingdom where my Heavenly Father and Mother are waiting for me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith day to day. We are all human and we will always make mistakes, but this is how we learn. Being apart of the church does not mean you have to be perfect, it just means that you will try your best. I stumble, I fall and I idle sometimes... but no matter how lost or confused I get the one thing that keeps me going is my Saviour and his love and concern for me. I wake up every morning and I make a promise to myself that today I will be better! I try to live how God would have me live and if I feel like I fall short somedays, I try again the next day and keep on going oppose to giving up. The most important thing is I remember who I am, a precious daughter of God with an importance in this world and in his kingdom that I cannot even come close to understanding fully right now. I say my prayers, try to read my scriptures daily and live a life looking for service so I can be an instrument in the Lord's hands. Keeping it basic is where we need to start and everything else will fall into place. We were sent here so we can experience joy and I'm at my happiest when my heart is aligned with God's.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Krista
We are a church built with love and kindness towards EVERYONE. Just because you're not a member of our church doesn't mean we have no concern for you, in fact it's the opposite! We're all apart of one big heavenly family, we're all brothers and sisters and we're all here to help one another. We don't judge others because their beliefs don't align with ours, but instead we offer them genuine love. When we serve others we're serving God and this never fails to fill us up with joy!
