Hi I'm Christie Paisley

I grew up in beautiful British Columbia Canada, but I will be serving a mission in Huancayo Perú soon! and.. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am an avid ocean-lover, sushi-eater, and future missionary! I love my family, friends, and Savior! I lived near the ocean growing up and just could not get enough of it. I moved to Nevada last year to go to College. I really don't know what I want my major to be yet but I do know my Father in Heaven and Jesus Christ know and love me perfectly. I am kind to other because I know that this is true for them too! I know that only through Christ's atonement can we be with our family forever and live with God again. I am grateful to know this and I want to share it with everyone!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this Gospel is true. I learned the Gospel from two missionaries when I was seventeen years old. They taught me that I did not have to live the unhappy life I had and that I could improve every aspect through the Gospel. They taught me to be faithful, obedient, and brave with all things to do with the Gospel. There is no denying the fact that I have been extremely blessed since joining the Church and living faithful to my Father in Heavens commandments. I am grateful for the opportunity to be blessed so fully by him, and I know this Gospel is the only way to do that! I have learned that everything is done through Jesus Christ and his atonement. That is why I choose to be a Mormon and live a Christ centered life. This means that everything I do is to strive to be like our Savior, Jesus Christ. To sum up the reason why I am Mormon in one sentence; I love this Gospel and I couldn't imagine my life without it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by constantly seeking opportunities to share it. The best way for me to learn, is to teach! Which is why I am so grateful for my calling as a missionary within my ward, it has given me the opportunity to show people what I believe and teach them why it makes me so happy. I am always preparing myself for teaching opportunities by studying the scriptures daily, and praying always. My relationship with Heavenly Father is strong because of this. My Testimony of the Gospel is also strong and that's why I love to live it everyday. Obedience to the commandments is imperative and has become a joy as I have learned that they are made to make me happy!
