Hi I'm Kristin

I'm a mother to 2 children with special needs. I Love my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 I've been married to my eternal companion for 8 years. We have 2 beautiful children with special needs. Our little girl is 4 and has rett syndrome. Our little boy is 1 and has a ventilator and g-tube. We LOVE spending time together as a family. Our struggles have brought us closer together and strengthened our testimonies.

Why I am a Mormon

 I am MORMON because I know The Church of Jesus Christ is the true church upon the face of this earth. It brings me joy to know that after this life, I can return to live with our Father in Heaven. It brings me greater joy to know that I can be with my family for time and all eternity. I have a testimony that continues to grow each and every day. I know that there are many blessings that come with fasting. Fasting is so important to our family every month and has strengthened not only my family, but me personally. I know that President Thomas S. Monson is a true prophet of God. We are blessed to have a temple close to us to do thy work. We count our blessings each and every day and are Thankful for them. I am also thankful for the trials that we have endured. Without the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, I don't think I would be as strong as I am today.

How I live my faith

 I am so blessed to have a calling in the church. I have the privilege to serve as the primary secretary. The children of the church will definately brighten your day and there is no better way to start your week with lots of smiles. I LOVE coming to church every sunday to partake of the sacrament and renew my covenants with Heavenly Father. I feel cleansed and pure. I also LOVE being a visiting teacher! There is no greater joy than serving and helping others and making new friends.

What do Mormons believe about family?

 The family is the most important social unit on earth. It is also the basic and most important unit in heaven. God's purpose for the family is to provide a place where children can be raised by parents in an environment of love and acceptance, where they can be best guided to adulthood. I love this part of the The Family A Proclamation to the World. The family is ordained of God. Marriage between man and woman is essential to His eternal plan. Children are entitled to birth within the bonds of matrimony, and to be reared by a father and a mother who honor marital vows with complete fidelity. Happiness in family life is most likely to be achieved when founded upon the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ. Successful marriages and families are established and maintained on principles of faith, prayer, repentance, forgiveness, respect, love, compassion, work, and wholesome recreational activities. By divine design, fathers are to preside over their families in love and righteousness and are responsible to provide the necessities of life and protection for their families. Mothers are primarily responsible for the nurture of their children. In these sacred responsibilities, fathers and mothers are obligated to help one another as equal partners. Disability, death, or other circumstances may necessitate individual adaptation. Extended families should lend support when needed.”  Show more Show less
