Hi I'm Kiristen Leanne Gonzalez

I'm a Mormon. I'm from Fresno,California and a convert to the church. I'm the only member in my family.

About Me

I'm serving a mission, and love sharing the gospel with others. I love the book of Mormon. I love my family and friends. My favorite activities are soccer, singing, dancing, and going to church. Music always brings me so much joy. I couldn't imagine my life without it. Especially, live music. My uncle is musical and has always been a good example to me. At family get together 's always playing with my cousins in a band. Someday I want to become a nurse practitioner. Always makes me happy to help other people. My parents have always been good examples to me. I love living life, and having the Lord with me every step of the way

Why I am a Mormon

I was searching for the Lord in my life, and I always wanted to go to church when I was younger. I kinda felt broken when I moved back home from southern californina. I was actively seeking to go to church and trying to find my way. I always felt the Lord was with me my whole life. I always prayed and talk to him, but I felt like something was missing. A empty feeling I could not figure out what was wrong. I started going to caltholic church but I felt like it wasn't for me. 2 wks before being baptized I pulled out and started working a new job. My desire to be baptized was still there. I was very sad and I prayed one day and asked the Lord what church he thought was right. 2 days later I made a bestfriend who introduced me to the church, and gave me a book of mormon and I read it. I couldn't put it down and felt the spirit right away. I couldn't wait to jump in. The elders started teaching me, and I was baptized. I will never forget the feeling of going under the water. Then coming out of the water, and it changed my life forever. I found what I was looking for and I feel his love to this day. I want to share the gospel with everyone now, because I want them to feel the same feeling. Also I want them to be able to find the Lord and go back to him. missionary work is the greatest feeling ever. I testify of the church, book of mormon, and missionary work.

How I live my faith

I read my scriptures everyday during the day I read book of mormon, preach my gospel, I than read my holy bible before I go to bed. I look for people to share the gospel with everyday. I try to live the gospel every single day. I sing and listen to gospel music and church music. I always stay open minded and open to learn what the Lord wants to teach me everyday. I pray before meals, morning, night, and sometimes afternoon praying depending on how I feel during that time. I try to look at everyone how Heavenly Father sees his children, and I love other and love talking to everyone. I always try to think as the Jesus would. I try to exceed in my church callings. I believe in glorifying the Lord to the fullest. I believe in being friendly to everyone. Just being a child of God makes me so happy, and showing respect to the Lord and his children is what I believe in. I love to serve others and help friends when I can. II currently am serving as a ward missionary and love it!!!!! Passing pass-a-long cards and sharing the gospel, with strangers I come across, and my testimony is how I try to help and reflect my faith in my Jesus. Also my Heavenly Father. I love them so much.
