Christy grew up around her grandmother who loved to read her stories. From an early age she would become engaged and captivated when listening to the tales spin out before her. Later in life, when reading to children of her own, she continued to keep the magic alive. Christy continues to this day writing stories for young children. Her writings feature stories about the pioneer prophets with insights into their lives, cooking, as well as children’s books about how to cope with the tragedies and challenges that happen in life.
Christy has published articles in The Ensign, Friend, and other children’s periodicals. Christy Monson received a master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from UNLV and established a successful counseling practice. She and her husband are now retired and living in Ogden, UT.
