Hi I'm Crystal Mortensen

I am an aunt, a baker, a teacher, a missionary and I am a Mormon!

About Me

I was born in Michigan but have lived in Utah for most of my life. I graduated from Utah Valley University with my Elementary Education degree. I love teaching Elementary school! I taught one year of 2nd grade before serving my mission. I am currently a missionary in the Georgia Atlanta Mission and am loving it! I got to Georgia in August 2012. I was originally called to the Atlanta North Mission but in July 2013 I was moved to the Atlanta Mission I have met so many sweet people and love being able to share the gospel!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because it helps be to be a better person and increases my Faith in my Savior Jesus Christ. I can't imagine where I would be in life if i didn't have the knowledge and hope that has come from living His gospel. I grew up in the church and never really knew any different. But being active because that was the 'norm' only lasted so long. I needed to gain my own testimony and know for myself that this is the true church of Jesus Christ and that He restored it through the Prophet Joseph Smith. As I studied the Book of Mormon and prayed to know, I received an answer. I have had many experiences that have strengthened my testimony. Most of those have been small miracles and simple answers to prayers, but I know that "by small and simple means are great things brought to pass."

How I live my faith

I have always tried to live my Faith through my interactions with others and follow the example of Jesus Christ. As a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I share the gospel with people that I meet.
