Hi I'm Christina

I'm an avid reader and movie watcher. I will be serving a proselyting mission in the Tokyo, Japan area. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the daughter and sister of passionate readers. I love to learn, to seek, and to find! I have come to realize that research is one of my greatest passions. I apply this both through my personal study of the scriptures and other church works as well as through my schooling. I was a junior in college pursuing my psychology major before I decided to take a break. I am also a fan of classic art and creative photography. I am the type of person that can sit in one beautiful spot and soak in the details of my surroundings.

Why I am a Mormon

In a nutshell, because the gospel is true. The Church, the prophet (President Thomas S. Monson), the standard works (Holy Bible, Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants, and Pearl of Great Price), etc. are all true. I cannot deny the peace I feel through the gospel and living its teachings. No earthly trial is too big under the reassurance and guidance provided through this gospel. Death holds no sting. I can testify of this because my own beloved father passed away about a year ago. There is always a right choice that our conscience will guide us towards. There can always be love. I adore the hope and clarity the gospel brings. I have faith in it and I strive to follow it, and thereby, I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I grew up in the church. The wonderful aspects being a member of the church (like personal and family scripture study or weekly church attendance) have always been a part of my life. As I entered my late teenage years, it became more meaningful than a habit or something I felt good doing. It became something I knew I wanted to do for the rest of my life and what I wanted to improve. I have been involved with other youth my age through the programs offered at church. I have been involved through counseling with the leaders of the congregation, keeping track of events, and more! Outside of having a designated role, I contribute in class discussions and support my fellow brothers and sisters in the gospel. I also plan on living my faith by helping share my faith. I am currently on an eighteen month mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
