Hi I'm Sister Christensen

I'm a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints! I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a missionary representing the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am from a small town in Washington, and am the second oldest of five children. I am a student of Brigham Young University- Idaho majoring in Nursing. I love music! It's the way I most connect how I feel to others. It's wonderful that just the positions of two hands on a piano can send an emotion straight from the musician to the listener. That's the wonderful power of music. It is a language that everyone understands. I have been called to serve in the Arkansas, Bentonville mission!!! I love sharing what makes me happy with all of God's children!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, or a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because it makes me happy. When I make mistakes that I feel really guilty about, I am able to repent and be forgiven, and feel clean and peaceful. I hate being guilty, and I love feeling clean and pure. This is what the church offers me-a feeling of peace, happiness, and comfort. I know that this church contains the fulness of the church that Jesus Christ organized when he lived here on Earth. I know that he suffered and paid for our sins, and because of this, I am able to repent and be made clean, free of all my mistakes. I know that by taking advantage of the sacrifice Jesus Christ performed for us, we are able to live with our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ again. This is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I am dedicating a whole eighteen months towards sharing the wonderful message of Christ's restored gospel! It is just that important!(And even more so.)

Does The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints endorse political parties?

Sister Christensen
No. Members of the church come from all different political parties. Political parties are not church-related, so it makes sense that the church (not the people in the church, just the church as a whole) would have no opinion on the different political parties. Show more Show less

What is being a Mormon like?

Sister Christensen
Being a mormon is great! It's so easy to be happy when you go to church, read the Bible and Book of Mormon, communicate to your Heavenly Father through prayer, and keep His commandments! Show more Show less

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Sister Christensen
Everything shows us that there is a God! For one thing, look at the beauty of our Earth. There is no way something like this planet could come out of an explosion like what the Big Bang theory says. Also, we, as humans, have amazing bodies! They are made in the image of God's body. They heal themselves, and fight wars against diseases every moment you're alive. Things like animal bodies, the fact that plants breathe what we exhale and we breathe what they exhale, and and the many relationships that we are able to have with others because of our ability to love just show us that only someone all-knowing could create something as beautiful and complicated as the lives we live on this Earth.
