Hi I'm Kristian

I'm a Skateboarder. I'm a Photographer. I'm a Missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Well, I'm Kristian. I love my friends and family. I grew up all over the place in Virginia, Malta, Finland, Portugal, and Utah. I love to skateboard and to draw and take pictures. I love finances. I love to travel and to talk to everyone. Currently, I am serving a full-time mission in the Portland area, and i'm having a great time bringing people closer to Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

For a long time I did not have any interest in the Church. Even though i was raised LDS, It was not something I was really into. About a year before my mission I was sitting in the Priesthood session of General Conference, and the Prophet Thomas S. Monson was speaking about missionary work. As I listened, I thought to myself that I should peobably go on a mission. Then, I thought, why would I do that? I dont even like going to church. Why would I want other people to go to church as well? I started having a little argument inside my head, reasons I should go, and reasond why I didn't want to go. I finally decided that I should, because the feeling was so strong. So I prepared, I studied, I prayed, and I strengthened my testimony that I didn't think I even had. So here I am, in Oregon, showing and sharing my testimony of Christ and how He has made me happy.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by loving my God, and loving His children. I wake up, and go out to serve everyone I come in contact with, in any way I can. I keep God's comandments and I show people that they can be happy by doing the same.
