Hi I'm Kristen

I live in Southern Calif. I'm a mom, wife, cook, a writer and music lover. I work in HealthCare. I am a Mormon.

About Me

 I am a mother, wife, writer,and music lover. I love to hear other peoples stories and share my own. I came from a pretty "interesting" family that some may consider dysfuntional, but I learned how to laugh and make the best out of every situation. I have chronic insomnia so I have learned to blog at night when I'm not surfing iTunes for great music. 

Why I am a Mormon

One day, while out walking at the local high school, I was reflecting on something the Prophet Gordon B. Hinckley said. "Remember always, that you are a daughter of your Heavenly Father." It wasn't until this sunny afternoon, that I realized what that statement really meant. I can't explain what it feels like to have something testified to you so strongly that tears flow with joy, but I can tell you I felt it that afternoon. The Lord truly does love each and everyone of us. He knows us all by name. Years ago, two missionaries knocked on my door and offered me the greatest life insurance policy it was a plan for eternal life. If they knock... let them in. Listen to the message they have desire to share. Listen to it with an open heart and then ask the Lord to testify if it is true. I promise you, it will change your life forever for the good. I Am a Daughter of Heavenly Father... Who loves me for who I am Even when I don't live up to my fullest potential He believes in me and my dreams Even when I lose my focus He trust me to raise His children Even though I sometimes loose my patience He has blessed me with a husband who holds the priesthood Though I don't always feel worthy to receive His blessings He understands the needs of my heart Even when I am confused He encourages me to choose the right Even when I am tempted by worldly desires He forgives me for my wrong doings Even before I am ready to forgive myself He pours His blessings upon me Even when I forget to thank Him in prayer He comforts me in my times of need He comforts me before I ask He wraps his loving arms around me Even when I fail to hold him back He lets me feel His love in quiet moments like this The Holy Spirit whispers it gently to my soul I AM a daughter of our Heavenly Father This is my testimony which I leave in the name of Jesus Christ. - Sister Kristen L. Andrews

How I live my faith

 I am a ward missionary which means I have accepted a calling in the church to help our church missionairies teach lessons to those seaking the gospel and fellowship less active members. Being a ward missionary gives me the opportunity to share my testimony with others. I'm not perfect. In fact, I mess up a lot. But I always pick myself up and try to be a better me each time.
