Hi I'm Crystal

I'm a missionary, I'm a college student, basketball player, jersey girl and beach bum and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I got called to serve in the Idaho Nampa Mission I've attended Southern Virginia University. I am a jersey girl living in a small town in Virginia now. I have spent most of my time playing basketball and with people who matter.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon. I have come to know who i am as a person, a daughter, a potential mother, and wife. I have come to know that we have a father in heaven who loves us, he truly loves us. He has not left us alone, he would not send us to this earth without support and love. And The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints provides that. We can come to know our father in heaven on a personal level, and we can begin to understand his love for all of us. I have been a member my whole life, but we can become converted through our trials, and exercising our faith in Jesus Christ. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior, and he has felt every pain and emotion that i feel over time and a daily basis. Knowing him and his sacrifice has brought me so much faith and that is why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

The biggest part of living our faith is seeing others as god sees them. So when i come in contact with strangers or friends i remember that they are my brothers and sisters. The love i feel from my heavenly father is the same love he extends to them. I try to share my love by serving others. As an athlete I have played on so many basketball teams, with people who are not of my faith I've been able to show them who i am, through playing with integrity, and keeping the Sabbath and letting them know me as a person.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Just becoming friends with someone, you begin to learn more about them. Heavenly Father loves us, he is our friens and the best way for us to know him is to pray. We should not feel pressure, or that we can't talk to him. He wants to hear from YOU and me. Just talk to him, I promise he will listen and as you strive to become closer with him you begin to learn how he answers prayers, and how he teaches you. You can also come to know him and how he teaches and blesses his children through his written word The Bible and The Book of Mormon. These provide perfect examples of who our father in heaven is.
