Hi I'm Kiersten

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My family has a great love of music. We sing, we dance, we play different intruments. I play the piano and my daughter is a talented dancer. I am a single mom and I work in an office. I love photography and scrapbooking.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church by loving parents but in my 20's I decided to go my own way. Life was fine for a while but then things spiraled out of control. I was married to a man who got involved in drugs and became abusive. I turned to the God of my youth and turned my life over to Him. Through a series of miraculous events the Lord showed me that He was always mindful of me and helped me get into a better situation in life. Since that day I have lived my life in accordance with the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know through personal experience that Jesus is my Savior. He does truly look for the one lost sheep. He found me and brought me back to the fold. My life has been hard but rewarding. I have seen so many miracles in my life. I know the my Savior suffered for me that I might be able to forgive my ex and move on. Forgiveness is truly a divine blessing.

How I live my faith

I am the choir director of my congregation and the local Spanish congregation. I love being able to use my talents to sing praise to the Lord. I choose the music and I teach the people in my choirs how to sing their parts to the best of their ability. It is such a joy to see people grow and expand their talents. I also sing at community events. Another way that I live my faith is that I talk about the events of my past and how the Lord saved my life. I have found that sharing my experiences gives other people hope about their lives.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

I love math. Equations and logic and the patterns involved in math are very interesting to me. For me it is logical that there is a God. The way the earth moves, the way the moon helps life on earth, it is not logical to me that it could happen by chance. Just like complex buildings are designed and built by intelligent people, this world was designed and built by an intelligent Being. Another thing that tells me there is a God, is the feelings I get when I am calm and quiet. I have felt an enveloping sense of love and care. I get that feeling when I watch a sunset or sit at the beach, as if that moment was created just for me. Show more Show less
