Hi I'm Christina

I am currently on a volunteer mission for the Church. I love to read. I try to make my friends laugh every day. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I just graduated from BYU-Idaho with a degree in Animal Science. I love to ride horses and read books. I worked on a sheep and cow dairy. I made really expensive cheese. Now I am on a mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I joined the church when I was 18. I joined the church because I could feel the Spirit testifying that it was right. And because I know that the church is of God I am going to serve a mission and give others the same gift I was given.

How I live my faith

I try to listen to the Spirit and then follow what it prompts me to do. I am not perfect but as I do this I come closer to my Heavenly Father. Which in turn brings me closer to the Spirit.

What do Mormons believe concerning the doctrine of grace?

Christina
We are saved by grace, through the Atonement of Jesus Christ, after all that we can do. Because we are not perfect it is only through Jesus Christ that we can return through Heavenly Father. But he asks us to have faith, repent, be baptized, receive the gift of the Holy Ghost, and endure to the end. When we do this, which is all that we can do, then we are forgiven. Then we can return to our Heavenly Father. Show more Show less

Why do Mormons perform baptisms for the dead?

Christina
We want every one who ever lived to have the same opportunities that we have. Think about how many people have died without having the gospel. Without having the opportunity to partake of the saving ordinances. So we perform work for the dead so they can have the opportunity to accept or reject those ordinances; such as baptism and Temple marriage. Show more Show less

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Christina
We really are normal people. We love our families, we work, we have fun. I love to watch movies and read books. We also make mistakes. We try to come closer to the Savior each day. We do this through personal and family prayer, and by reading our scriptures. We also go to church each Sunday. We do things as families and with our neighbors. We try to be good citizens. In short we are normal people trying to be better. Show more Show less
