Hi I'm Kristin.

I'm a businesswoman, a philanthropist and a lover of all things crafty. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a full time IT Consultant currently living in Michigan with my husband. I spend trying new and yummy recipes, reading, and exploring all things crafty. I love exploring the outdoors, travelling around the world and learning/using new technologies. We don't have any kids quite yet, but we do have one cute fluffy kitty named Myao Ming who we love.

Why I am a Mormon

I joined the Church in 2007 just as I was entering my sophmore year of college. I had always felt like spirituality should be a big part of my life, but I never had quite found a place that felt right. One day I had a moment where I thought -- What if Mormon's knew something I didn't? The LDS friends I had seemed to really practice what they preach and live their values, which I admired a lot. After that, I began talking with a friend and meeting with missionaries. Ultimately, it was my decision and I had to sincerely ask Heavenly Father if the Book of Mormon was true. When I at last asked with a strong sense of purpose, willing to receive the will of my Heavenly Father, the spirit of God bore a strong witness into my heart that it was indeed true. I reflect now on how my decision to be baptized has changed my life. The Gospel of Jesus Christ has helped me be the person I wanted to be all along-- and the person Heavenly Father knows that I can be. I know that I am a daughter of God, that families are eternal and that Jesus Christ is my Savior. These simple truths define who I am and what I stand for each day. I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and am glad to proclaim, "I'm a Mormon".

How I live my faith

I live my faith through acts of charity and serving the Lord and his children. In my 4 years in the Church, I have lived my faith by: - Teaching Sunday School each week - Planning events for the women in the ward - Singing in the Choir - Teaching 3 years olds about how God created the earth - bringing meals to families with new babies - Organizing youth camps and conferences - and many more activities

What is faith?

Kristin.
Faith is believing in someting that is not seen, but is hoped for. It takes faith to believe that God exists, and that he would send his son Jesus Christ to pay the price for our inadequacies. But Heavenly Father has not left us alone -- he has provided the Holy Ghost (or Holy Spirit) to guide us and to help us to know what is true. It took faith for me to become a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The Holy Ghost confirmed the truthfullnes of the Gospel to me, and I acted in faith when I was baptized. Heavenly Father blesses us when we act in faith, just as I have been blessed tremendously as a result of my willingess to be baptized. Show more Show less

What are Mormon Temples used for?

Kristin.
Temples are houses of the Lord, where we worship Heavenly Father just as was done anciently. In temples, Church members participate in ordinances to seal familities together for eternity, and help prepare them to be with God again one day. Show more Show less
