Hi I'm Kirsten

I am studying Biology. I love long walks on the beach, in the mountains, and Momma's cooking. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently attending college and I plan to major in Biology and become a High School teacher in that subject. I love spending my time outside. I have a gorgeous view of my town all the way to the snow covered mountains out of my bedroom window. I love capturing this beauty I see through film photography. I love music and often play it. If I could play myself to sleep every night, I would. I absolutely love my family and I cannot imaging a life without them. I thank the Lord everyday for being blessed with such great people in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I see God's hand in my life everyday. I have, quite literally, felt the spirit manifest the truth of what I am studying in the scriptures and what I hear when the leaders of the church speak. I cannot picture where I would be in my life without knowing the truth of this gospel.

How I live my faith

I live my faith my attending my church meetings and actively participating in them. I live a happy life and try to uplift others on my way. I work on reading my scriptures daily. I pray often and thank my Heavenly Father for everything he has given me and I always try to keep a prayer in my heart. I have participated in church Christmas choirs and was a part of OCMCO Orange County Mormon Choral Organization where we performed Christ centered oratorios. I was a part of the Newport Beach Temple jubilee where we celebrated the completion of Newport Beach, California Temple.

Mormons believe Jesus Christ is their Savior. Why do we need a Savior?

Without a Savior, this life on earth would be pointless. We come to earth in a fallen state as the natural man. It is the role our Savior plays that saves us. He suffered in Gethsemane and died on the cross for each one of us. He died for you and He died for me. This act made it possible for us to repent of our sins and ask for forgiveness to be saved and return to live with our Father in Heaven again. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about family?

Growing up in this church, my family had a weekly "meeting" we liked to call "Family Home Evening". We gathered each Monday night in hopes to spend some quality time with each other. Mormons believe that families are very important. We believe that we can live with our families for all of eternity by being sealed to them in the temple and living righteously. I love my family.  Show more Show less
