Hi I'm Kristen

I'm an interior decorator. I love dolphins, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love summertime more than anything. Going out to the lake with my family and friends, tubing, boating and see-dooing. My family likes to go camping in the mountains where we can tube down the creek, quad and play lots of games. I love baking new things and love them even more when they turn out, friends, watching movies, hula hooping. And I've been on a hot air balloon.

Why I am a Mormon

The gospel brings so much joy into my life. The central focus is families and I love mine so much. They are so wonderful and do so much continually for me. They're wonderful examples of hard work, kindness, forgiveness and love. The church allows me to be selfless and give more to others, with consistently looking for ways to serve those around me and brighten their day, which it in return does the same for me. I also love the Book of Mormon and its stories and teachings. The gospel is what brings me peace and comfort when something goes wrong in my life, no matter how big or small it may seem. I live for the moment trying to make the best decisions I can for my future.

How I live my faith

I get to start off each day reading my scriptures and having the teachings help and guide me with the daily decisions that I have to make. I attend church weekly and try to live as an example to those around me. I love it when my friends and associates ask me about the church, what we believe and why we do the things we do. I love talking about the gospel to anyone who will sit and listen.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Families are the central focus of the church and usually the people we spend the most time with. Our relationships with each member of our family are so important because we have the opportunity to be with them for time and all eternity. They are the ones who are there for us the most and love us more than we could ever know. They give so much of their time and put so much effort into making us happy and giving us every opportunity imaginable. They know so much about us, have helped shaped who we are and usually have to forgive us the most. Especially with having younger siblings it means so much to me to be an example of good to them, someone they can look up to, talk to and love. Families are so important because they will always be there. Show more Show less
