Hi I'm Sister Christa Hathaway

I love music and art. Winter sports are the best. I'm missionary in the Michigan Detroit Mission!!! And I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints! I am currently serving in the Michigan Detroit Mission (best place ever!) while I wait for a visa to go to Goiania, Brasil. I grew up in a small town called Star Valley, Wyoming. I have a big family, and I love every bit of it! We spent our time camping, fishing, and enjoying our time outside. I attended college at the University of Wyoming for a year before the mission, and my plan is to go back there. My plan is to be a teacher, but we'll see :)

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have come to know for myself, through prayer, study, and experience, that this church is everything it claims to be. I have read the Book of Mormon- It is another testament of Jesus Christ. It is true, and I feel peace and strength when I read it and live by it. I know that God is my Heavenly Father. He loves me and has a plan for me, and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is His organization. Being a member of this church gives me direction and happiness that I know cannot be found anywhere else.

How I live my faith

I have found that the best way to live my faith is by being a happy person, and by serving other people. This is often as simple as smiling at someone or sincerely listening to them. When I'm serving others, my own problems seem to shrink. (I realize that the world doesn't actually revolve around me :) By following the example of Jesus Christ, I show what is really important to me. He is my best friend, my Savior, and my King. I want everyone to know Him the way that I know Him, and that is why I am serving as a missionary.
