Hi I'm Kirsten

I'm a Canadian, Spanish-speaking nurse who loves learning and follows Jesus Christ by being Mormon.

About Me

Hi! I'm a nurse. What's you're superpower? I love being a nurse because I get to make a difference in people's lives every day I go to work. I just got a new job in a cardiovascular ICU and I am very excited to start and learn so much more there. I served a mission in Idaho speaking Spanish and in a visitors' center. It was one of the best experiences of my life. I love the arts in all forms, swimming, hiking, and traveling. I love learning about EVERYTHING! If you will teach me, I would love to learn about it. Last year I completed a triathlon for the first time and right now I am learning how to ballroom dance.

Why I am a Mormon

No matter who you are or how long you've been in the church, you have to do the same things to gain a testimony. You have to read. You have to pray. You have to come to church. You have to obey the commandments. I have done those things and still do and have felt the witness from the Holy Spirit. The Lord knows so much and is able to do so much more than I and so doing things His way, including being LDS, works so much better than anything I could come up with on my own.

How I live my faith

Because of the faith I have in Jesus Christ and His church, I left university with one semester left to serve a full-time mission for eighteen months. I get to study His words everyday and teach them to others. Right now I have the wonderful opportunity to serve in the temple as an ordinance worker. The spirit and strength that are in the temple are so strong and I have felt that support in all aspects of my life. I have also gotten to know my ancestors better as I have searched for them and helped them receive their temple ordinances. Following Jesus Christ is more than just a one-day-a-week or task-like activity. It is a part of who you are. I try serve others in whatever way I can and strive to develop Christ-like attributes through much effort on my part. I try to control my thoughts, words, and deeds so that Christ would be willing and able to support them all.
