Hi I'm Kristin

I like to run - I just finished my first half marathon! I am going to school for a PhD in Math Education. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have recently begun running. I try to run at least 5 days a week and am generally preparing for a race anywhere between a 5K and a half marathon. I like running because I feel good when I run and it gives me time to think and enjoy the sceneray. I am also a student working on my PhD in math education. I teach math and actively participate in several research projects. I study teaching statistics, multiplicative reasoning, and formative assessment. I enjoy learning about the way we learn. I love spending time with my family and friends. My siblings are some of my best friends. My school friends were the ones who introduced me to running, and my siblings have helped me continue running.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I Mormon? I was born to parents who were members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and I was raised as such. However, an important part of our religion is to find out for ourselves. My parents taught me to pray and to read the scriptures (i.e. the Bible and Book of Mormon), so I dutifully have do so. With time and experience, I have learned for myself of truths that have changed my life. The principles and doctrine found in my faith have shaped me.

How I live my faith

Living my faith involves the following: 1. Sunday worship services 2. Service and fellowshipping 3. Daily for personal worship (study, reading, prayer, reflection) 4. Family time I am the president our women's organization. There are 60 women in my congregation. Some of my responsibilities include holding and attending various weekly meetings. Fellowshipping, working with counselors to coordinate weekly Sunday lessons and activities. The activities and are intended to build a sisterhood, strengthen faith, increase friendships and provide a drug- and alcohol free environment for single, college age women.
