Hi I'm Krystal Rachelle Ashley Jones

I live in Alaska, I'm headed to serve a mission in Honolulu, Hawaii this fall and I'm a mormon.

About Me

Our family is really close and being the middle kid has helped me learn from their experiences. Growing up in Alaska I've learned to appreciate nature and embrace the awesome activities that are available here, such as hiking up Mount Marathon, running the 10K Homer Spit Race, Snow machining up in the hills with friends, chopping/splitting wood, jumping off docks across the bay, tubing on the cold ocean, camping in literally the middle of nowhere and going to church dances. In addition I love to exercise and dancing with my siblings. On the side I like to do art, get messy in the kitchen, mow our huge lawn, bike and have gospel discussions with my friends, big brother and dad. I've found from my mom that you can apply the gospel teachings to pretty much anything, books, movies, life lessons, etc. I'm proud to have such strong parents in the church and for their example to me. Life isn't always easy but my parents made sure that our unit was a safe place turn to with any problems we face. They are a great support team and I love them dearly.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a mormon because I choose to be, yes I was raised in the church but I rely upon my own testimony. As I become more immersed with the gospel the more I see His plan for us. We are all His children and it's said in 2 Nephi 2:25 "..men are, that they might have joy." It's simple enough, just live His commandments and you will be blessed. I can't think of a more loving being who would sacrifice all and prepare a way for me to return to Him. I love this gospel, I know the power of the priesthood and I believe in His words. I look forward to sharing His message to the world for the rest of my life.

How I live my faith

I have taught in many callings and through gaining a different perspective I learned so much and I am very blessed and grateful to have the privilege to serve a full time mission this fall. I hope that by aligning myself to Christ that I can become the best version I can be, selfless and loving towards all who enter in my life; passing strangers, family or long time friends. Christ set the perfect example and I know that we do have a purpose here, through helping others and seeing the world through His eyes we can achieve true happiness.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

If you want to know your Father in Heaven learn of his teachings by reading The Book of Mormon. When I want to talk to him I pray and when I want him to talk to me I read the scriptures. Show more Show less
