Hi I'm Kristi A.

I am a Junior High math teacher turned stay-at-home-mom, loving every moment with my angel children. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love learning and loving. I am an educator by profession, and will return to teaching again at a later date. I enjoy running, reading, and quilting. I have been blessed to serve in many positions in the church, each teaching me valuable lessons about love, life, and Jesus Christ. I pray that every day my Savior is proud of me for what I have done with the hours afforded me. After all, time is not ours to take. It is ours to give back to Him who gave it to us.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a good and hard-working family who gave their all to family, taught me to work, save, and serve. The Gospel of Jesus Christ aligns with common goodness and provides me answers to questions about where I came from, why I am here on Earth, and where I am going after I die. The scriptures (specifically the Book of Mormon) reveals the crucial answers to these questions. The temples of the Lord allow us to be sealed to our precious families for all eternity. My knowledge of the eternities and the goal of living with my Heavenly Father in His kingdom with my family beside me to rule and reign is precisely why I love and choose to live the Gospel by being a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I believe in service in all aspects of life. I have chosen to stay home with my children, and put my career on hold for now. I participate in the local Parent Teacher Association as a volunteer board member at my kids' school. I get to teach the 15-18 year-olds in their Sunday School class, and I love listening to their testimonies grow each week. I also enjoy visiting with the ladies in our congregation about life, improvement, rearing our children, and best practices.

Why is it important for us to take care of our bodies? Why are our bodies called temples of God in the Bible?

Kristi A.
Just as the Temple is the house of the Lord, we are literal spirit children of Heavenly Father, and our spirit is housed by our bodies on Earth. Hence, our bodies house Godly spirits. Our bodies and spirits need both parts to maintain and perform a healthy life. If we choose to house our spirits in a worthy, healthy, and strong temple (body), we will be blessed with the outpouring of His spirit, allowing us to use our bodies, minds, and spirits for His work on the Earth.
