Hi I'm Christyl

I grew up in a small town in Arizona. I'm a dancer and a gymnast. I love music, art, and origami I Am A Mormon

About Me

I am a dancer and gymnast. I have been dancing and doing gymnastics since I was 3 years old. I have been blessed with a spectacular family. I strive to be the best that I can be. I am the last of a family of 6. My family is very close to my heart. I love doing things with my hands like origami. Soon I will be serving a mission in Baltimore, Maryland for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I am excited to be serving the Lord by serving others and bringing them closer to their Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. Sharing with them the blessings that come from the gospel of Jesus Christ and returning one day to live with our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is Christ's true church upon the earth. I know the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ and it was given unto us by Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ through Joseph Smith. I know Joseph Smith was a true prophet. I know the Lord gives us continued revelation through Thomas S. Monson a modern day prophet. I know Jesus Christ lives and blesses us in our daily lives. I know Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love each and everyone of us and want us all to return and live with them again. I know God is as the scriptures tell us "the same yesterday, today and forever." I know Jesus Christ atoned for the sins of all mankind. I know I will be with my family for all eternity as we live lives worthy of his blessings. I know we all will go through trails which will help us to grow. These trials will help us to know Joy, for it is from sorrow that we will we know Joy. I know Jesus knows each of us individually by name and knows the struggles we are going through. By overcoming these struggles we will know happiness. I know he is and will always be by our side helping us along the way. I know through the gospel of Jesus Christ we will have a fulness of happiness which cannot be bought through material things. I know I am a child of God and I know you are also. I know we are spiritual brothers and sisters, children of a divine parent who wants us to become like him. I know these things to be true and witness them to you in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen. This is Why I Am A Mormon.

How I live my faith

I have served in many callings in my ward. I have been in involved in putting activities together and serving in the presidency in my youth classes and singing in my ward's choir. I am now preparing to go on a mission to serve full time in bringing the gospel of Christ to others so they may feel joy that comes from it. I strive to keep the commandments of the Lord and the covenants I have made with him. I know he has blessed me when I have gotten nervous before a performance, at school or when I have felt hurt mentally. I would pray to him for comfort and I would be given it. He has blessed me to become healthy at times when I was sick. He has touch my life many times through the Holy Spirit providing me guidance and safety. He has blessed me with his love and I know you can receive these blessing too.
