Hi I'm Krista Twitchell

I'm a wife and mother of 2 with a college degree. My job is the busiest, yet most rewarding ever. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a wife and mother. I have two beautiful children and a wonderful husband. I have a degree in Math and Earth Science Education, and want to teach in a middle school. I want to make a difference in the lives of youth before they develop a distaste for learning and especially for math. I love to be crafty; sewing, cooking, scrapbooking, organizing, and just making stuff. I love to read, especially religious adventure and fantasy books, realistic fiction, non-fiction, and self-help books. I am very athletic; I workout at Curves, I like playing tennis and soccer, and of course playing (and chasing) my children.

Why I am a Mormon

Sometimes I wonder this myself... I grew up in the church. But I know just as strongly as any convert that this church is true; I love it with all my heart. I had my doubts when I was a young teenager and didn't really want to follow all the guidelines that were set. I was a little rebellious in junior high, and didn't really realize the trials and struggles that I had in gaining my testimony until I was engaged and packing my bedroom. I pulled out my old journals and started to read through them. I realized what a sour personality I had back then, and I got to read through my growth and see the change that had taken place as I began to find myself and discover that the guidelines and commandments were really given to me to help me be the best person I could possibly be. Then again in high school there was a time when I was really depressed. Another non-member friend of mine was also experiencing some depression. I used past quotes and stories from young womens in Church to help me count my blessings and relieve my depression. I gave some of these to my friend. Within a couple of months this friend started taking the missionary discussions and was baptized. That was the point in my life where I knew without a doubt that the Church was true and my desire to be a member, a righteous member, grew more than ever.

How I live my faith

I do my best to let my faith and testimony strengthen the lives of others. I sing in the church choir and aid in blessing all with the joys and praises of Church Hymns. I love to help out with the children and the youth in Primary. I teach my children to sing hymns and to read their scriptures and say prayers. (That is the most rewarding part, watching and listening to my children sing, read, and pray.)
