Hi I'm Chrystal

I was born and raised in Bakersfield, California. I get to love my kids everyday. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

-I get to be the stay-at-home mom of 3, soon to be 4 young children and I get to mother my niece! I have the best job in the world! -College and Career are on hold until my children need me a little less and they're worth it! -I take pride in giving my children all I can, while I can. All too soon they will be leaving the nest and need to know how to fly in the right direction. -I'm not the best mom in the world, but I give it my best everyday. That's what makes me a good mom. -I have the most amazing husband in the world because he works hard so I can be there for our kids.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member my whole life but there came a time when I had to decide if the gospel was true. The one truth of the gospel that I have always clung to is eternal families. The power that God has given man to seal families together forever, not until "death do you part." So many of my friends hoped for more but were not promised that. Line upon line my testimony was built as I strived to live the teachings of the gospel. The fruits of following what was is taught were always much better than when I didn't, or for those I love when they chose to walk a different path. I now know with everything in me, that the gospel is true, and if I live it, I will always be blessed. Not trial free, but favored of the Lord in all things.

How I live my faith

I love that we are not paid to serve in our callings and have no other reason to fulfill them except to glorify God. I know that every calling, if you do your best, you will be blessed and lives will be touched. I am currently an assistant in the library. The spirit is the best teacher and we carry the materials to help the spirit be born to all those present because we all absorb the spirit in different ways. For instance, one will be touched by a picture, another by the teachers words and someone else by the scriptures read. All that and more can be found in the library and how hard would it be if there was no no one to help you find it! All of the callings that I have served in have blessed me as much, and maybe more, than those I taught or served with.
