Hi I'm Christina

I love traveling to new places, I love my family, I like to have fun, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm attending BYU- Idaho. I'm 22 years old and I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints my whole life. I love my family so so so much, they are the most important relationships. I have lived in Oregon my whole life, it is beautiful with all the tall tall trees. When I was in high school I was a cheerleader which faced me with challenges but I learned a lot about myself. I know that the lord has blessed my life and continues to bless it every day. There are many things to come in this journey and often the unknown is scary but I can't wait for what is in store for me.

Why I am a Mormon

Although it is not always easy to follow all of the things that the Lord asks. I do know that he wants me to be happy. To be happy I need to follow the things that he asks of me because these things will bring to happiness for then I can be with my Heavenly Father again. When I lead a life the Lord wants for me I feel his love and his joy. I know that the Lord gives us all challenges and trials in our lives, it's not because he does not love us it is because he DOES love us. We are to learn and grow from the challenges that we are given. The Lord is there to lead and guide us in this life when we face hard times. The Lord does not necessarily need me but I NEED him.

How I live my faith

I go to BYU- Idaho, a place that Lord is present. there is a spirit here that is strong, everyone has the light of Christ. The place is surrounded with love and centered on the Savior. I have chosen to attend this college because of these reasons. I know I am not perfect but I strive to feel the spirit and draw closer to him. I try to be an example and serve others. As I read the scriptures, pray, and attend church the closer I feel to my Savior. I have faith that the Lord loves all of his children and has a plan for all of us.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

As we read the scriptures, pray, and attend church it nourishes our testimony in the gospel and our savior Jesus Christ. When I do these things I can feel the love of my Heavenly Father and feel closer to him. I am the most happy when I have a good relationship with my father in heaven. We must work in order for our testimony to grow stronger. Show more Show less
