Hi I'm Christie

I'm a Mormon. I love quilting & sewing with Red, White & Blue fabric! My favorite thing is giving quilts away to wounded soldiers!

About Me

My favorite family activity is boating. We have had a boat since 1983. It was great when our children were growing up, to bring their friends out on the water with us. That is a wonderful way to get to stay close as a family and to get to know our children's friends!! Now all four of our children are married and I have 9 grandchildren. We look forward to spending the summer boating with the whole family. The grand kids love being on Grandpas boat!! Another fun activity we do each summer is "Grandma Camp" ! It is great to have all the grand kids together. Playing games, making cookies, painting rocks! They love being with their cousins! Then one big slumber party and it's over! Being a Mother, and a Grandmother are the "BEST JOBS" I have ever had! I do work professionally as a receptionist/office manager for a successful Podiatry Clinic! Every day I enjoy greeting each patient as they come to see our Doctors. I try to make our office a pleasant place to be, and my motto has always been; "Happy Feet, Happy Day"! I must be doing a good job, as I have worked with these Doctors for 15 years!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family. With the example of my parents and grandparents, I have always known the Church to be true. My great-great Grandfather met Mormon missionaries in Denmark, was baptized and came to America with his brother and sister. They settled in southern Utah. Another one of my great-great grandfathers joined the Church in Wales, also coming to America to be close to the Saints in Utah. Because of my Mormon heritage, I was taught as a youth the gospel of Jesus Christ. I love my Savior and the sacrifice He has made for me. I love the stories of my ancestors and I try to keep their memories alive, by celebrating their birthdays with my children and grandchildren, and also with my extended relatives. I feel it is important for the next generation to know their roots! As a young Mother, I wondered if I truly believed all I had been taught. It was a great concern of mine, to know for myself if The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was the true church. I did not want to rely on the testimony of my husband. After pondering and praying about what I knew, I had an experience that helped me get an answer. I was singing in our church choir for a Thanksgiving program and the closing number was a special song to me, "I Know That My Redeemer Lives"...as I sang the words of that song, tears streamed down my face, and I had such a warm feeling inside. It was then that I heard these words come into my mind, "You have always known." I no longer need to doubt. That evening I got a special witness that will last my entire life.

How I live my faith

I try to be a good neighbor and visit the older people on my street to make sure they are doing well. I have 3 ladies I visit every month, and report back to my Church leader with any concerns they may have. At work I try to be an example for good to my coworkers. I am a happy and positive person and they know I would be willing to help them with any problem or concern, personal or work related. They know I do not swear, and help each other to not use bad language around me.
