Hi I'm Krystal Payne

I'm a country girl from Texas serving a mission in Everett Washington. I love music and sign language. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I come from a big family. I have eight brothers and one sister. growing up in a large family was challenging and wonderful. there was never a dull moment. I hope to be a talented musician one day. i sing everyday. i just can't help it. i also have a great love for American Sign Language. i wanted so badly to be called to a signing mission but I know I am where the lord needs me. i would love to further develop my knowledge of music and language skills and some day use them to help, uplift, and inspire others. i love making people happy and making a positive difference in their lives. As far as hobbies and other activities I am interested in, I like to crochet, ride horses, cook, swim, watch movies, fish, and hang out with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of this church for several reasons. Though, it is uneasy at times to follow all the guidance and commandments that this church asks of its members, I have seen the blessings of being obedient. I know the priesthood is real and is the true power of Heavenly Father restored upon the earth. Seeing the power of the priesthood in my own life has been the greatest strength to me. This is the only church on the earth that can trace the complete lineage of the priesthood (proper authority to act in God's name). I know this to be true because the spirit has testified of its truthfulness to me. I also know that through prayer and the true desire to know if the teachings of this church are true anyone can know these things to be true for themselves.

How I live my faith

I am just finishing another semester of college and preparing to go on a full-time church mission for 18 months. i am very excited to share my blessings and happiness with others. one of the reasons I decided to serve a mission is because I shared the gospel with someone that is very dear to me. i noticed a significant difference in my life when I was participating in the missionary lessons. i felt so much strength and happiness during that time in my life because I was able to share something that meant so much to me. i want to feel that strength again. i want to help others feel that happiness and love too.
