Hi I'm Christi Clark

I love to learn. Right now, I am loving 4H with the kids. I also want to learn more about gardening and canning the produce.

About Me

I was born here in Yuma and have lived all of my life in various small towns and also large cities across Arizona.. In some areas I have lived around many Latter-Day Saints and in other areas not so many but I have always found the fellowship of good Christian people whether they be LDS or not. As a Latter-Day Saint, I am "in deed" a Christian or at least I have made great efforts to follow the example of Jesus Christ. I am the mother of five, beautiful children. I have worked as a registered nurse during the past 10 years and enjoyed ministering to the needs and comfort of God's children. As a mother, it has been my focus to create a loving home environment where my husband and kids feel safe and at peace when they're home. We hold a weekly family night which we call "Family Home Evening". We each take turns directing the evening which includes in this order: a silly song, a reverent song, a prayer, announcements for the week, a short lesson on good character or life skills (often selected according to what's needed), a closing prayer, and of course dessert! We enjoy our family time together. We also participate in 4H, Scouts, and soccer. I, personally enjoy history, family history and genealogy, gardening, reading good books, cooking for my family, and attending chorale events. If you ever bump into me on the street, introduce yourself to me! I love meeting new people and I've never met somebody that I couldn't love.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised from birth in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints by wonderful, faithful parents who taught me correct principles. They taught me early in life about Jesus Christ, the scriptures, how to pray and how to serve. I was baptized when I was 8 years old and had obtained the practical knowledge of knowing the difference between right and wrong. All the years prior to my baptism, I was instructed about the atonement in relation to my sins and shown how to repent and encouraged to seek always to do what is right and have the Holy Ghost with me. For the next decade in my spiritual development, I did try to stay on that straight and narrow path. I, of course, made some mistakes. I had some spiritual experiences and all of these experiences, spiritual and otherwise, led up to that wonderful moment when I was reading in the Book of Mormon one evening, wanting to know for myself if I belonged to the true church of Jesus Christ and erase any doubts. I was 19 years old and a college student. I was reading in Alma 10:5 of the Book of Mormon about the conversion experience of a man named Amulek. Amulek says: "Nevertheless, after all this, I never have known much of the ways of the Lord, and his mysteries and marvelous power. I said I never had known much of these things; but behold, I mistake, for I have seen much of his mysteries and his marvelous power; yea, even in the preservation of the lives of this people." At that moment, I had the burning of the spirit in my heart confirming all that I had been taught. So many of my "marvelous" life experiences flashed through my mind and I knew that I could not "mistake" the Lord's loving care for me in those experiences. He KNOWS me. I feel like the woman at the well when she said, "Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ?" With that same excitement, I invite you to read the Book of Mormon and pray to know for yourself if it is true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving at home, at church, and in the community. I am a mother. I am a good neighbor. I serve in the Primary Presidency at church overseeing the teaching of the gospel of Jesus Christ to children younger than 12 years of age who attend. In that same capacity, I oversee the Cub Scout program hoping to influence young boys ages 8-11 to grow to be men of faith and good character. I am also a member of the LDS Relief Society which seeks to serve and improve the community where we live. I enlist the help of my children often to participate in Eagle scout projects or other benevolent causes within our community. If you recognize my picture, I hope it is because I have performed some service or small kindness for you.
