Hi I'm Kirstin

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

We commonly hear that the three most important things in life are God, Family, and Country. I would add one great love to that list--Baseball. I am an American, and proud of it every day. I am a wife and a mother of 5 beautiful children who fill my life with laughter and excitement every minute. I know who God is and that He loves me, and that fills me with peace and assurance every second. But what on earth would I do without the smell of fresh cut grass and hot dogs, the crack of the bat, and a mitt and ball in my hands? Yep, I'm a wife and a mother, I'm an American, I'm a Mormon, AND I'm a baseball fan.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was in high school, friends and acquaintances would frequently ask me why I was so happy. Why did I smile all the time? I wish I had the courage back then, as I do now, to say, "Because I'm a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints!" I know that Christ's true church is upon the earth once again. I know that I am a daughter of Heavenly Father and that He loves me. I know that life exists beyond our mortal comprehension. This knowledge offers a peace that enables me to have a greater perspective, to laugh and look past small annoyances or offenses, to relax knowing that, if I do my part, the Lord can make up the difference. And that is why I smile all the time.

How I live my faith

There is a song that LDS children sing, entitled, "I'm Trying to Be Like Jesus." I'm trying to be like Jesus, I'm following in his way. I'm trying to love as he did in all that I do and say... Love one another as Jesus loves you. Try to show kindness in all that you do. Be gentle and loving in deed and in thought For these are the things Jesus taught. This is my very favorite song, and my goal as I try to live my faith. I want to do all that the Lord has asked me, or will ask me, because I am eternally indebted to him and am so grateful for the great gift I have been given in the form of a sure knowledge of the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
