Hi I'm Christine

I love to exercise, read, and spend time with my family. I spent a semester in Thailand teaching children English. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the middle of 5 children. I grew up in Utah and have lived there for most of my life other than when I am living in Idaho going to school. I am currently a senior at BYU-Idaho, and I am studying Elementary Education. This past fall I went to Thailand four 4 months and taught little kids English. I recently received my call to the Arizona Tempe Mission and am thrilled!

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member my entire life. But the reason I choose to remain a member of God's church is because of the witness I have received from the Spirit of God. It is hard to explain, but deep inside me there is such a strong conviction that what I am doing with my life is right, because I am following the Gospel. I particularly have a very strong testimony of the Book of Mormon. I know it was written for our day and it is true. I know ancient prophets wrote the messages of God for us to read and help us in our daily lives years later. There is a power that comes into my life by reading from it daily. I cannot explain how I know, but there is a deep Spiritual conviction within me of the truthfulness of this Gospel. And I look at the fruits and blessings and protection that come from living this Gospel and I cannot help but see how much God loves us. I know we are His children and He wants the best for us. I know that by following His commandments we will be happy in this life and live with God again. Just try living the Gospel. See how it makes you feel and observe the blessings that come into your life. I have seen them, and I am happy because I live the Gospel. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Every week I go to the temple to participate in doing ordinance work for the dead. I am trying to be better at being more consistent at doing my family history. I study my scriptures each day and pray for guidance from the Lord. I am preparing to serve a mission this coming Summer.
