Hi I'm Christa Smoot

C-ville Utah born and raised. Missionary in the IDMM.& I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm serving a mission in the Iowa Des Moines Mission-Spanish Speaking (June 2014-December 2015) Listening to musiccc is my 24/7 and Adrenaline rushes are what I live for. I was a cheerleader and gymnast all growing up; my favorite past time hobbies include anything outside. (Snowboarding, longboarding, fishing, four-wheeling ect.) Before my mission I worked as a CNA and LOVED it and hope to be a nurse or physical therapist someday. I grew up in a family of 8 and they are everything to me. Growing up my parents were a great example of love, they taught my siblings and I that through all our ups and downs we always have each other, our savior, and the knowledge of this gospel to strengthen us. And not a day goes by that I don't thank my Heavenly Father for it.

Why I am a Mormon

I know the truthfulness of this gospel through striving to live it everyday, and the happiness and joy that comes from it is unreal. Everything that means the most to me... is and ever will be because of this gospel. I KNOW that Jesus Christ is there for us. He loves us with a perfect love, and because of his Atonement he knows our pains and weaknesses and knows how to help us overcome them. So when you are tempted to: Don’t quit. Don’t look for escapes and excuses. Look for the Lord and His perfect strength& stay in the yoke and keep pulling. Venga lo que venga, disfrútalo (Come what may and love it.) I am so grateful for hard times& for every time my faith was tried growing up. I am a HUGE believer that gratitude can fix anything and give us an essential perspective on things. It makes our days happier and it builds our faith even stronger. This gospel brings true and lasting happiness. And for that, I am eternally grateful.

How I live my faith

I only serve in the RADDEST mission there is... The Iowa, Des Moines mission. I am a Spanish speaking sister. I love every minute of serving others& have never been happier. Love the people. Love Iowa. & Love this work I get the opportunity to be part of.
