Hi I'm Christine

I grew up in Utah. I'm interested in anything related to medicine. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently a college student. I come from a small family and a small city. I like to read, cook, listen to music and spend time with people I love. Medicine and health care are important to me. I'm pursuing a career in health sciences because I love to help people.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was eighteen, my mother told me that I had a choice to make. I could either choose to continue going to church or I could choose for myself to find another path. I went to church that Sunday for the first time as an adult and it was my own choice and I realized then that I had developed a testimony of the gospel and that's why I went to church, not because my parents told me I had to go to church. Sometimes things go wrong. I got really sick, I lost people I love, I went through so many trials but I never got mad at God, or turned away from the church because I knew that if I stayed strong, my trials would be worthwhile. I always knew that Heavenly Father loves me and wants me to be happy and that my trials wouldn't last, I've tried to look at what I can learn from trials and how I can use my trials to help other people. I've always known that Christ's church has been restored to the earth, that the Book of Mormon is the word of God, that the Book of Mormon was meant for our day to help us know how we can follow Christ. I know that Joseph Smith restored the church and translated the Book of Mormon through revelation from God. I know that God has called prophets and apostles to lead the church today. I know He wants His children to be happy and be with Him again.

How I live my faith

I've been part of a committee that prepared food for the ward members at after church social functions once a month, and I've taught children ages two to twelve on Sundays as the need arose. Mostly I just try to do the right thing and lead by example. Nothing I've done seems really significant but I've tried to help where I can. I've tried to live my faith everyday in the little things that I do.
