Hi I'm Krystal

I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I'm Krystal, and I am so happy to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I was born into the church, and my parents were also. My Grandma on my mom's side was converted and baptized at age 16. I am serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Arizona Tucson Mission. I love being here serving the Lord. This gospel is soo true! I hope each of you will take time to pray and learn of the truthfulness of everything. I love Utah, I have moved 18 times, and always longed to be back in Utah near family. I love to scrapbook, and do crafts. I love hiking, nature, and just being alive!!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Gospel, but as I've gone through life my parents allowed me to choose to accept it or not. I decided to accept it a long time ago. I have many precious experiences for me to know that this is the religion that I want to belong to. I continue because it gives me hope and strength to live this life I have been given at a very high cost. I know that this church is true, and I know that Jesus Christ is the savior of the world. He is our older brother who truly loves us. I know that Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon, and that he honestly saw the Father and the Son who spoke to him to bring forth this gospel in this dispensation for the blessing of those who are willing to accept it. I know that we have a modern day prophet, seer, and revelator, Thomas S. Monson. I know he leads and guides us today with inspiration from our Father in Heaven. I know that the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost are all separate beings but are one together. I know that if anyone wants to know if this gospel is true, all you have to do is read the Book of Mormon and pray to know if it is true and if you sincerely pray to know; you will be answered. I know these things to be true. This is my testimony and it is my life. This religion is so much more than a Sunday thing, it's a lifestyle that I choose to live daily.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by daily scripture study, and sincere prayer. I also love writing in my journal so those who follow me can know my love for my family, and our savior Jesus Christ. I recently got the calling to teach in the hour class for women ages 18+ I know that this will be challenging as I am only 20 and unmarried unlike others in the group. I love my faith and all that this gospel stands for.

Do Mormons practice polygamy?

Krystal
The prophet Joseph Smith wrote 2 Declarations which are located in the Doctrine and Covenants in the first declaration part reads: "I, therefore, as President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, do hereby, in the most solemn manner, declare that these charges are false. We are not teaching polygamy or plural marriage, nor permitting any person to enter into its practice, and I deny that either forty or any other number of plural marriages have during that period been solemnized in our Temples or in any other place in the Territory." We believe this still today, and do not practice polygamy. Show more Show less

What is faith?

Krystal
"And now as I said concerning faith—faith is not to have a perfect knowledge of things; therefore if ye have faith ye hope for things which are not seen, which are true." This scripture is from the Book of Mormon, Alma 32:21. It explains that faith is believing in something that is not physically able to be seen, but you can feel the truth. Just like the wind you can't see it, but you can feel it's truth. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about the Bible? Do they regard it as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Krystal
"We believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly we also believe the Book of Mormon to be the Word of God." This is in our Articles of Faith, this is number 8. Show more Show less
