Hi I'm Krista

I grew up in Sandy, Utah. I am living in China teaching 7-9 year olds to speak English. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

When I was growing up, I was a competitive athlete. I participated in swimming and soccer. When I reached high school, I didn't want to miss out on anything. I joined the health occupations club, Woman's Association, 2 elite choirs and I had 3 jobs. I went to college for a year then decided it wasn't for me, I found a service program that I could get involved in. That's why I now live in China.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I know that this gospel is true. I had a friend in high school that would tear me and my faith down every chance he got. Because of his actions, it made my faith so much stronger. I would go home at night and pray for comfort and knowledge to help him understand. In those times when I was downtrodden, the spirit never left my side. I could pray about the things that I worried about and find answers in the scriptures. As I read the scriptures now, my testimony grows. Everyday, I can count on the Lord to be there for me and I love that. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Because I currently live in China, I can't talk to native people about my faith. I can however. still practice my faith by attending church and participating in church activities. All the members in China a very spread out so it is a great opportunity to get together with others who understand my standards and way of life. I can't share my faith but I can share my love for these people by being kind and smiling at them with every opportunity I get.
