We are happy to answer any questions you may have.

Hi I'm Cristina

I love playing the piano and organ. I enjoy traveling and going on adventures to new places. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Spain, but my family moved to Utah when I was young and I've grown up speaking Spanish at home. I'm a college student studying Spanish Translation, and I hope to learn a few other languages as well. I love playing the piano, organ, singing, and pretty much anything to do with music! I also enjoy traveling and going on adventures to new places. From beautiful scenery like Yellowstone National Park to cities filled with amazing history like Rome, anywhere where I can learn new things and see the world is great! :)

Why I am a Mormon

Even though I grew up as a member of the church, I still know for myself of the truthfulness of the gospel. I have read the Book of Mormon many times and I know that it is the word of God because I have prayed asking to know if it is true. I never received a miraculous vision or anything of the sort, but when I asked Heavenly Father if the Book of Mormon was true, if this really was the restored church of Jesus Christ, I felt a feeling of peace and knew that I had received my answer. I know that we are children of Heavenly Father and that He loves each and every single one of us. He knows us by name and sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to atone for our sins so that we can go live with Him again. I am so thankful that I have the knowledge of this gospel in my life!

How I live my faith

I love to share my testimony through music, whether it be playing the organ or piano while the congregation sings or singing in my ward choir, I love any time where I can share my talents and testimony simultaneously. I enjoy talking to others about the gospel because it is something so dear to me. I am currently serving as a full-time missionary in the Brazil Teresina Mission! I am so excited to be able to share the wonderful message of the restored gospel with my brothers and sisters in Brazil. I am serving a mission because of my gratitude for the many blessings my faith brings into my life, and I want to share this good news with everyone that I can!

Do Mormons regard the Bible as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Cristina
Yes! We believe the Bible is indeed the word of God and that its teachings will help those who read it and live it come to Christ. We believe that the Book of Mormon is another testimony of Jesus Christ and that it supports and adds to the doctrine in the Bible. Show more Show less
