Hi I'm Christie

I have lived in five of the United States - Ohio, California, Florida, Washington and Utah. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife and mother. I have a bachelor's degree in elementary education. I love to read and write and hope to be a published children's book author someday. I also like to travel, but more than anything I love to be at home with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and have gradually developed my own personal faith throughout my life. I continue to increase that faith through daily trying to live according to the principles and doctrine of the Church. I know that I am a daughter of my Heavenly Father, who loves me and has a plan for me. I know that Jesus Christ's atonement and resurrection have made it possible for me to return to live with my family and Father in Heaven forever. I know that Joseph Smith restored the gospel of Jesus Christ to the earth. I have read the Book of Mormon many times and I believe it to be the word of God. I know that we have a living prophet and apostles on the earth today, to guide us in these latter days. My testimony is so important to me because it gives me purpose and direction in a confusing world.

How I live my faith

I am currently teaching the five and six year old children in our ward. Each week I prepare a lesson based on the teachings of our Church, and present it to them in a way that they might understand and apply it to their own lives. We sing songs and play games, but above all we try to invite the Spirit to be with us and help us come closer to Christ.
