Hi I'm Kirsten
I love life! I have been blessed with the ability to see the silver lining in situations, people and every moment. I am a creator. I love seeing the possibilities in spaces. I am an Interior Designer and because of that I am constantly seeking out and noticing beauty in the world. Last year I started my own design business from home. I feel blessed to be able to be a stay-at-home-mom but still follow and peruse my talents and passions.
Why I am a Mormon
I am a Mormon because I believe it to be true. With all of my heart I know that being a Mormon is who I'm supposed to be. I can't imagine my life any other way. My faith makes me a better person. I am a Mormon because I feel happy when I am following God's commandments and doing what is right.
How can your talents and gifts bless others?
I used to feel like I was one of those people who didn't really have any talents. I was good at lots of things but not really great at anything. In college I picked a major that I never really enjoyed. After I got married my husband and I moved around a lot and I was forced to work at jobs that were "less-than-ideal" making minimum wage. I started to wonder what it was that I was supposed to be doing. What was I good at? I had always loved art, crafts and being creative and so I decided to pursue Interior Design. This meant starting completely over again in college. It was hard work. There were many times I thought I was going to quit. But I believe strongly that Heavenly Father was guiding me along and supporting me and when it was tough the Holy Ghost would whisper and remind me that this is what I was supposed to be doing and I couldn't quit. I graduated and started my own small business out of my home. I love the feeling of doing something that I truly love. It's an incredible gift. I believe that our Homes can be Heaven on earth if we let them be. I strive to bring a sense of order, peace and beauty to spaces and rooms. I love creating spaces that families can gather in and be surrounded by beauty. I'm not saving lives or changing the world with my talents but I do feel that I am uplifting and beautifying the world. I am using the talents that God has blessed me with in the best way I know how.
How I live my faith
I live my faith by example. I try to show people how happy my faith has made me. I am at peace when I am doing what is right and trying to be a good person. I live my faith by having a smile on my face and expressing kindness to others.
