Hi I'm Kristin
I love to learn. I especially enjoy learning from the world around me. I have a wonderful husband and recently celebrated 5 years of marriage! We have two darling little boys. I received a massage therapy license right after high school and later an associates in spa management and leadership. I love vacations. I have a habit of bringing home strays. I trained my first service dog for 2.5 years and am so happy to have her placed and serving in such a helpful capacity.
Why I am a Mormon
I was baptized at age 8 and I also attended a Catholic School as a youth. I was always visiting different churches and very interested in religion. I was also very confused by the time I was an early teen. We moved to a new area and I met some other "Mormon girls". While I had not been very involved in any specific church for several years I felt it was very important that I decide what MY beliefs were. I wanted to KNOW what I knew. There was never anything fantastic or awesome no one moment where it all fell into place. As I watched these young girls live with such virtue such kindness, I noticed a peace that came to me as I tried to be like them. It became stronger as I learned more and took the challenge to pray about what I had been learning. I felt God's love. I still do, daily even! Often I am overwhelmed by such force of gratitude at the love I have for a Heavenly Father that lets me know in the smallest of ways how important I am to Him. I know that I am a daughter of God. I know that He loves each of us.
How I live my faith
Currently I am serving as a secretary in our women's organization. It is wonderful to become familiar with the names of the other women as I help keep the role and attendance. I help the president and counselors schedule time to visit with the women and stay in touch. We put together a monthly newsletter that includes a short message, the months birthdays, a calendar of events, the months scheduled Sunday lessons and a message from the current Ensign that the women can study and share with the women they do monthly visits with. I love being a part of this organization I enjoy hearing the prayers of the president and counselors on behalf of the women in our boundaries. There is such a love for the women we call sisters. I have only been with them for a few months but I am so grateful for what I have learned about service, compassion, friendship, and good wholesome fun.
