Hi I'm Whitney Christensen

I grew up in good ole' Utah, have an AMAZING family, I'm currently serving a mission in Cancun Mission and I am a Mormon

About Me

I'm just a normal crazy 20 year old girl who loves to dance and sing at the top of her lungs when no one is around. I love reading, writing, long boarding, doing crazy things and just chillin' out, playing games and talking. I love working with people who have special needs and children. There is something so special about them I truly believe that they are the closest thing we have to heaven here on earth.Their innocence radiants and touches lives. Some of the most spiritual experiences I´ve had, havve been in their presence. There will always be a special place in my heart for them. I love talking and getting to know people. I love the fact that you can have a different relationship with every person. I especially love the fact that we can each have a special relationship with our Father in Heaven and our Savior Jesus Christ. I'm the oldest of 5 kids. I have the best family in the world, hands down. I have been blessed in so many ways but my family is easily the biggest blessing and the fact that I know that I get to be with them forever makes me so excited for what the future holds for us and for my future family. I was raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and like everyone else, I had to find my own conversion to this gospel and I try to work on converting more every day. I have a deep love for the Gospel of Jesus Christ and know that as soon as someone comes to know it and is converted they will too and their life will never be the same.

Why I am a Mormon

Why I'm a Mormon? I know because I've lived it two ways. Trying and not trying. I was once really lazy in the Gospel and didn't know why I couldn't find happiness. I tried to find happiness in clothes and materialistic things and nothing was working. One day I sincerly prayed probably the most sincere prayer I'd ever given and found the peace and happiness I was looking for. I changed my life that night and started my mission papers the next day. I'm still working on becoming who I want to be and wish that I had figured it out sooner but the wonderful thing is that I know now and I wouldn't change my experiences for anything and I get to help people find this joy I have found. Like Alma the younger I want all to feel the love, peace and joy I feel. I want them to know how much their Savior Jesus Christ and their Father in Heaven loves them. I want them to find the real and different eternal happiness that only this Gospel brings. I know this is the only true gospel . I feel the spirit so strongly through fully living it. I've watched this gospel change peoples lives for the better and watched the light of Christ appear in people who have accepted it and the endless joy it brings. I couldn't imagine not having the relationship that I have with God and the comfort it brings me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by praying and gaining a personal relationship with my Savior and my Father in Heaven, reading the Book of Mormon and trying to improve myself daily. Like I said before once you truly convert it effects every aspect of your life and I truly believe that it makes everything better when you come to know and love this gospel. I am currently serving a mission, and it has been so great! I love it so much! nothing is better than being able to talk about my Savior on the daily and serving his children.
