Hi I'm Kristen

I'm a military wife, a volunteer, a stay at home mom, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a military wife of one of the United States Air Force finest and mother of three preteen boys. When I have time I enjoy reading a good book, visiting the National Parks, and photography. Usually you can find me coordinating homework, sport practices, choir concerts, scout meeting, making dinner, and doing laundry. I try to visit as many as the local sites and have as many local experiences as are available since we never know when we are going to be moving.

Why I am a Mormon

As a young girl I wanted two things, one was to be good and the second was to have a family. As I grew I found that being good was more difficult than I had imagined as a child. I was blessed to have been born into a family that was Mormon and taught the principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I was able to face most challenges with understanding and faith. Although I made mistakes as a young adult I knew that I could make amends for those mistakes and still be good. The knowledge that my family is not only a unit here on earth but forever has brought peace and stability during times of loss or separation. Growing up as a Mormon I was taught to love my fellow man, be respectful, work hard, stand for right, that I was a child of God and to follow Jesus Christ. These are principles that I want to instill in my three boys. I know that if they have this knowledge they can face whatever challenges come their way in life, just as I do.

How I live my faith

For the past year and a half I have been involved with the Key Spouse program for the United States Air Force. I support over two hundred families of our deployed military members in the 59th Medical Wing. I get the opportunity to make a small difference in the lives of these families when they are separated from their loved ones. I am also involved with the Boy Scouts of America as a troop and pack committee member. I enjoy seeing boys grow into young men as they learn skills and values that will help them throughout their lives.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

No, Mormons look for opportunities to help children of God in both big and small ways. We get together to assemble hygiene kits that go all over the world or we watch a neighbors child while they are out. We remove debris after a natural disaster in cities miles away and we sit on our local PTA boards. We don't ask what your beliefs are, we just ask if you need help. Show more Show less
