Hi I'm Crystal

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized when I was 8-years-old. However, I never had a strong testimony in the church growing up. I had no desire to live by any of the commandments. After I graduated from high school I went to college, and then to a different college. I couldn't figure out what I wanted to do. Then I decided to join the military. I had a contract to be a CTT, part of the intelligence program, with the Navy and had my ship off date for boot camp. But I still didn't feel confident in the choices I was making for my life. I knew I had to be 100% sure of my decision while in the Delayed Entrance Program because Basic Training was approaching closer and closer. I had an interest to go back to church and started to become more active. My testimony was still weak but I wanted to keep building it stronger. I knew that if I decided to continue with the military at that time my spiritual progression would suspend and most likely even regress. I would go back to my old ways, I would face many of the same personal challenges and struggles. That was the absolute last thing I wanted for myself. So in hopes to grow and learn more of who I wanted to be, I took a leap of faith and told the Navy I would no longer enlist. It was a heart breaking decision for me because it truly was something I had been looking forward to and not many other choices I had made in my life had I ever been so genuinely excited about. But I knew I had to work on my faith first and build a stronger testimony. And that's how I've come to where I am now. I acted on the trust I have for my Heavenly Father and have been blessed to feel closer to Him than ever before. I am so grateful for the life I have been given and know that whatever happens does really happen for a reason. The Lord has a plan for me, for everybody, and we will be filled with the greatest joy when we carry out His plan for us!

How I live my faith

Well I'm serving a mission so there's that!
