Hi I'm Christy

I'm the average American. Young. Married. College graduate. Former Teacher. Mother of four. Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother of four beautiful children and the lucky wife of a great man. I married my senior year of college and then taught school for a year and a half before becoming a mother. My days are still full of teaching, though a much harder, much nobler kind. I love reading, and though not an experienced traveler, love learning about people and their lives - especially those that differ so greatly from mine.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a Mormon has improved every aspect of my life. Because of truths I know, I am a better teacher, a better wife, a better mother, and a better me. Being a Mormon changes the way I look at things. As I try to follow my Savior, Jesus Christ, my life is enriched and I feel happier. I see the good in others more easily. I feel gratitude for the beauty around me. I feel hope despite frustrating moral and political battles that surround us. I feel there is value in my role as mother despite what the world would tell me about abandoning my career. I know the family is the most important unit of society and am grateful a loving God has allowed me the chance to be a mother. Being a Mormon truly makes me happier, better, and more at peace.

How I live my faith

I work with the children's organization in our church. Each week I help teach a class of eight and nine year olds. I love teaching them to apply scripture in their young lives. I love seeing them understand, or recognize that they are of worth and are loved. Who doesn't need that reminder?! A friend and I also take time each month to visit other women in our Church. We spend time visiting and trying to find out ways to help each others' lives better. We teach of Christ and of the hope and joy His gospel brings if we apply it in our lives. It's truly the "good news" I need in my life.
