Hi I'm Kristen

I'm a daughter. I'm a sister. I'm a friend. I'm an ER nurse. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up traveling the world. I lived in Zimbabwe, Morocco, and Hungary because my mom worked for the US State Department. I truly enjoyed traveling and experiencing different cultures. I love participating in anything outdoors such as hiking, sailing, wakeboarding, swimming, etc. I played the violin in school and want to start playing again. I recently graduated from college with a degree in nursing. Currently, I work in a busy ER and love my job! I have 2 younger brothers, one serves in the US Army and the other is starting high school this fall! I love my family, friends, and life!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a Protestant household but didn't attend church regularly. I always prayed every night and wanted to go to church but never found one that truly fit. When I was 18, I was introduced to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I immediately knew there was something different about this church. I started meeting with the missionaries and felt such peace and love from them. I didn't actually convert until three years later when I began a serious study of the Book of Mormon. About ten pages into the book, I knew I wanted to be a Mormon! I love knowing that we have a Heavenly Father that knows each of us by name. I love knowing that families are eternal. I love knowing that we have a prophet on the Earth today who can guide us. I love knowing that we have the Bible and Book of Mormon for peace, comfort, and guidance. I love knowing about the Atonement and Jesus' sacrifice so that we all can return to our Heavenly Father. I love the kind and wonderful members of the church. Basically, I love being Mormon!

How I live my faith

I'm a member of the Compassionate Service Committee. We are in charge of spreading love throughout the sisters of our church. We have "love notes" where sisters can write kind, uplifting words to each other. We send birthday cards to sisters. We also have a "Good News" discussion on the 4th Sunday of the month where we acknowledge sister's accomplishments. We have service projects such as organizing blood drives, cleaning homes for families who are having a hard time, and participating in Habitat for Humanity.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Pray and read the Book of Mormon. No one can tell you if this church is true other than our Heavenly Father. Show more Show less
