Hi I'm Christine

I love sports. I love to travel. I am a student at BYU. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a student at BYU and I absolutely love it. I’m still trying to figure out what I want to study, but I’ve enjoyed exploring different fields so far. In February of 2015 I returned home from an 18 month mission to Piracicaba, Brazil. It was the best experience of my life thus far. I learned and grew so much, and now have an immense love for Brazilians, Portuguese, and of course rice and beans. I was born on the East Coast, but I grew up in Northern California. I was a Girl Scout from kindergarten through my senior year of high school. During high school I also threw the shot put and discus all four years. I am the second of four kids and love spending time with my family. I love to watch baseball and to play soccer. My dad and I recently made a goal to visit all 30 Major League Baseball ballparks! When I have time I enjoy a good book, especially Harry Potter, and watching great movies and TV shows. I love to travel, and hope to be able to travel the world during my lifetime. I spent a semester in London during my first year at BYU and I learned so much and had fun meeting amazing people and seeing incredible things! I am so grateful for my Savior, and His Gospel. It influences everything I do and I can’t imagine my life without it. It is incredible to know that the Savior is always there for us. He loves us more than we can understand, and He will help us if we just ask.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the Church. Both of my parents grew up LDS as well. Growing up I attended church regularly and as I became older I was able to gain a testimony for myself. I have come to truly love this gospel and my Savior. I know this gospel has made me so happy, and I am so grateful to be a part of it!

How I live my faith

I have been blessed to work with other young women in my home ward. I have been able to be a counselor for younger girls at a church camp. It was such a great experience to be able to see these girls love and serve one another. I also recently returned home from a mission in Brazil, and I am so grateful for the opportunity I had to be a representative of my Savior and teach people more about His Gospel!

What do Mormons believe about family?

We believe that the family is extremely important. The family is the central unit of the plan Heavenly Father has created for us. We believe that we can live with our families for eternity if we are sealed together in the temple and live righteously. Show more Show less
