Hi I'm Krista

I am a research worker in a plant laboratory. I love to play sports and spend time with my family. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Des Monies, Iowa. I am the youngest of five children. I am currently preparing to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Santiago, Chile. Previously, I attended BYU for two semesters. I love to play sports! My favorite sport is racquetball. I also love to spend time with my family!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the Church of Jesus Christ brings true joy and happiness into my life! I live my faith because I know that it is true. I am willing to make sacrifices of being a Mormon because I know that it is worth it. The commandments of God are there to keep us on the right path and to help us grow. I am willing to keep His commandments because they help me become a better person. I can not imagine living my life without the knowledge and comforting peace of the Gospel of Christ. I have found out for myself, and I know with surety that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the Lord's church upon the earth today. No other knowledge or gospel will bring such joy into your life.

How I live my faith

In everything I do, I try to live my faith. I strive for Jesus Christ to be at the center of my life. I have found that when I allow Christ to be the main focus throughout my day, that I am filled with a greater sense of worth and happiness. How do I focus on Christ besides just thinking of Him? Service! When I serve others, I am filled with the pure love of Christ and I begin to become more like Him. I also live my faith by continually doing the small and simple things. I strive to study from the scriptures and turn to my Heavenly Father in prayer each day. Those are small things, but when added together, they help define me and what I believe and know to be true!
