Hi I'm Christa.

I am a married stay at home mom to three young boys. We have a toddler and twin infants and they are a joy to raise. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was raised in Ellicott City, Maryland by loving parents who are strong in the LDS church. I am the oldest of four children. I graduated high school in 2005 and was accepted into Utah Valley University. While studying Elementary Education there I met my husband. We were married in the Washington D.C. temple July 2007. I graduated college May 2009 and two months later delivered a healthy baby boy we named Parker. Just 19 months later we had our second and third children, twin boys named Beckett and Aiden, born March 2011. I am a stay at home mom to these three wonderful boys while my husband works as an engineer in a plant. We just recently bought our first home in Delaware and are working together to raise our three children and any more to come in the gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of this church my whole life. My parents are strong in the church and raised me to be a good person with strong values. I am Mormon because I know these teachings and values are the truth. My religion is the core reason for my happiness. I know that my Heavenly Father lives, loves me, and knows who I am. I pray to him several times a day and try to maintain a strong relationship with Him. I know that He blesses us when we make righteous decisions. I know that my Savior lives. I know that this church is true with my whole heart. I have worked hard to live the standards of the gospel and while I am never perfect I try hard to be a good example to my family. I'm a Mormon because I know that the Plan of Happiness is the true plan our Heavenly Father created for us as a way to make it back to Him. The family unit is so important in the LDS church and I love that our religion is centered around the people we love the most.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church almost every Sunday and listening to the talks and lessons given by fellow ward members (between making trips to and from the Mothers room to feed and change my babies!) I live my faith by living the word of wisdom and abstaining from alcohol and other addictive substances. I live my faith by trying my best to read my scriptures daily and by praying to our Heavenly Father. I live my faith by taking care of my children and showing them unconditional love.
