Hi I'm Christi

I love being outdoors, spending time with loved ones, and learning new things. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a nursing student and I recently deferred from college and will be serving a mission for 18 months. I'm so excited to share the gospel with the people around me. I was a swimmer in high school and my favorite events were breaststroke and IM. I love scrapbooking, cooking, learning, playing sports and being active, and just being with the people I love. I love the water and being outdoors.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because this gospel has brought me true happiness in my life. I have been able to find peace and comfort when times become extremely difficult. My family has become stronger and grown together through the gospel. This gospel gives my life a purpose and it strengthens my hope and faith to continue forward when difficult times arise. I have come to know my Savior Jesus Christ and He has brought me so much strength and comfort in times that I couldn't have made it through alone. I was born a member of this Church but I still had to find out for myself if the church is true and to turn my heart completely to the Lord. My conversion occurred gradually over my life and has been so precious to me and I am so grateful for my Savior Jesus Christ and that he atoned for my sins so that I can find happiness in my life. I have millions of reasons to smile and laugh every single day of my life, and I do.

How I live my faith

I enjoy serving others and I strive daily to improve myself and become more Christ-like in my actions and attributes. I enjoy taking opportunities to serve those in my community as well as neighbors and friends. I've been in leadership positions in my ward and on committees where I help plan activities and find ways to help those in our community who are struggling. I've also been able to do volunteer work with hospice and nursing care and I really enjoy that. I'm currently preparing to serve a full-time mission to help others find the happiness I have found in my own life through the gospel of Jesus Christ.
