Hi I'm Christyn

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a stay at home mom of two children three and under. My husband goes to school and works to support us. I was adopted into an LDS family when I was very young, and because my dad was in the military we moved around alot. I ended up in Utah, where I met my husband, and I love it here. I love being a mom and wife, as challenging as it can be sometimes. The challenge comes with many blessings, and many more yet to come, I am sure. I love the outdoors and am always finding ways to improve my life and the lives of my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormon) , originally because I was adopted into it, but I have gained a testimony of my own and cannot deny the personal confirmation I have received that my religion is true and right, and the principles and doctrines taught are completely true and perfect. Being a member of this church, and obeying the principles taught, truly make me happy and give me hope. I would be very depressed without the knowledge I have that I have learned by being a Mormon.

How I live my faith

While I, like everyone in our church, am far from perfect, I take what I learn in my religion and am trying to live my life according to those principles. I am a big believer in service. Helping others makes me happy, as well as those I help. I believe our Heavenly Father often uses us to help others, and if I am living a clean pure life I notice that I can receive impressions much more easily on how to help others and myself. I can't improve in my life if I just sit and do nothing. I realize this, and I know it is a constant struggle to try to improve, but I know it is necessary or I will just regress in my goals. In our church neighborhood organization (or ward), I am the secretary for the Primary, or the organization for children ages 3-12. Our church relies on the testimony and service of its members to thrive, and I believe that is how God wants His children to live.
