Hi I'm Kristen Jensen

I am a music lover. I am a future sister missionary. I am a mormon.

About Me

I am a student studying psychology with the hope of working with addiction recovery. I love music, I have played piano all of my life.I love to dance including ballroom, country and latin dancing. I am the only girl in my family. I like to run and hike. I love spending time with my friends. I love learning and living life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe in Jesus Christ. I believe in the gospel because I have gained my own testimony over the years. My parents have helped me develop it, but I have had to go out and find out for myself what I believe. The gospel makes me happy, and the principles found in the gospel bring peace into my life. I look at the world and see confusion and misery, but I know I can look to God and the gospel to find peace. It gives me a purpose and direction to my life. Oftentimes, I can get discouraged but then I think about the plan of salvation, and the purpose of coming to Earth to learn and grow, and everything makes sense. As I have grown older, my testimony has continued to grow, and it is still growing.I can look back at my life, and the see how living the gospel has brought blessings to my life. I have seen miracles in my life, and although they haven't been big, tiny miracles happen in my life because I know that God lives. Essentially, I am a Mormon because I believe in God.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by serving others through words and actions. I try to live a Christ centered life and invite others to Christ through my example. I know that living by faith requires action and belief. I live my faith by trying to have the Holy Ghost with me at all times and by following the promptings I receive.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Kristen Jensen
Yes, We can get married in the temple, where we can be together forever. This union is very special to me, and I am so happy I can have this in my future. This if my favorite part of the gospel, that families can be together forever. I love my family, and the fact that I can spend eternity with them brings joy in my life. Families are central to our church. Show more Show less

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

Kristen Jensen
I have experienced blessings from reading the Book of Mormon, and our other scriptures. Most often the spirit that comes from it, can change my day from having a negative attitude to a positive outlook. I can learn from other's mistakes, and see how other's people faith changed their life. My favorite part is when i apply the scriptures to myself, they mean so much more to me. I can see more miracles happen in my life when I read the scriptures, because my eyes are opened to the truth. Show more Show less
