Hi I'm Christena

I am the wife of a College Student, mother of two precious boys, employee for a University. I'm a Mormon :)

About Me

I am a wife to a very busy College Student who works part time to full time, and is studying Accounting. I have two amazing little boys who wipe the energy out of me each day! I am working to help support my husband getting through school, and I have been going to school on and off with the dream of one day becoming a nurse. I love to be with people, and love spending time with family. I enjoy doing all sorts of activities, as long as they are with friends and family! I love taking walks with my family and enjoying the beautiful things around me. At times I feel like I don't have many hobbies, because at this time in my life... it seems my children are the only hobby I have time for. I am involved in my community, and enjoy getting to know those around me. I love making others happy, because so many people have made me happy!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, because I know God speaks to us today. I know that what the Prophets teach are true. I have felt in my life the power of the Holy Ghost, as I read the Book Of Mormon there is a feeling of peace I feel in my heart. All of my questions about life and what happens after this life are answered. The gospel teaches us to do GOOD, I love the feeling of when I have done something good, and I have helped someone else. I know that we exsisted before this life, and that the Lord has a plan for each one of us. We are not just overlooked, but God knows us individually and he has a plan for us individually. He knows our hearts, and desires, he is the only one who can help us in our times of discouragement when no one else knows what we are going through. I am a Mormon, because of the strength I recieve by having special ordinances in my life, by being baptized and by being worth to go to the temple. I know this is the true church restored to the earth again. Our Savior has come, and he will come again. I know this, because I feel it not in my body, but in my spirit which has exsisted since before this life. I know I chose to follow my Savior before this life and I will continue to follow him now. I love this gospel!

How I live my faith

I have a job where I get to know many people in my community. I try to live so they can see what I believe. I want to show others how happy I am because of the faith/gospel in my life! I want those around me to know I love and care for each of them! In my church/ward, I am a leader to the children and teach them about the gospel. I plan activities to get them participating in the church, and to help them understand the love I have for them and the love our Heavenly Father has for them. I have a few people I try to visit each month as a visiting teacher. I try to show those I visit, that I care for and love them. I get to know many new people from this as well, and get excited each time I can make a new friend. When I am helping someone else, I am so much happier and I feel I am so blessed. I try to live my faith wherever I am, so those who see me know what I stand for and can be uplifted. I hope to always be an example of my Savior, Jesus Christ.
