Hi I'm Crystal

I grew up all over the US, mostly Missouri and Georgia. I'm mother of two and wife to my wonderful husband. I'm Mormon!

About Me

I'm a stay at home mom to two beautiful girls. I'm wife to my awesome hubby. My husband and I love to play video games together. We have three dogs. I enjoy reading and writing, mostly fantasy. I enjoy anime, manga, Korean drama and wondering about the mysteries of the universe on a daily basis. I love making people smile, laugh or just helping if I'm able to.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because it has healed my heart, mind, and helped me find hope-when I had less than none.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by teaching my children to respect all people and loving everyone including those that are different. I try really hard to teach my children through example what being a good person is. This is an everyday process of taking stock of myself and discovering what I can work on.

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Mormon women are. . .well just like any other women on the planet! Women are givers, nurturers, loving, talented (in various ways!) and so many other things. As a Mormon we do our best to augment the wonderful qualities our Heavenly Father has already given us. We spend time learning new arts, caring for young ones and old ones, building each other up and learning to become better people daily. One of the things that I love about being Mormon is its important to be a woman (don't want to leave the men out-being a man is important too!). Fathers, brothers, sisters, mothers, aunts, uncles all of these people are important instead of becoming insignificant. We all bring something to the table! Equality is important! Men and women are equally important to Heavenly Father and civilization. However equal doesn't mean the same. I've learned as I've become a mother and a wife that women and men are naturally gifted in different things to compliment and help each other as a team. For example a group of friends might have one person who is gifted with art, while another is gifted with intelligence, yet another friend might be socially gifted. Does that mean any one is greater than the other? No way! It means they all bring different abilities, points of views and ways to help, to one group of friends. I've found the differences that my husband and I have are able to make us an even better team to help our children grow and become the awesome people that we hope for them to be! Show more Show less
