Hi I'm Kirsten

I'm a student, a wannabe crafter, a book lover, an art history enthusiast, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I work and go to school. I am currently going to school to become a health information technician. In between school and work, I try to find time to be creative! I love to read (out of the good books obviously) and to collect books (that I will someday eventually read). I love art history, especially the Italian Renaissance, and would one day love to go on and get my Masters in Art History and Museum Studies.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and as I have grown so has my testimony. I was about twelve or thirteen when I really started to gain a true and strong testimony. It began with a desire to know Joseph Smith, Jr and what he did for the church. I began to study his life and the different events that occurred to him and the early people of this church. I learned about the trials and persecutions they suffered. I wanted to know why, after so much had happened to them, they would continue to be true to the faith. I took it upon myself to find out. I prayed and studied the scriptures; I went to my church meetings and asked questions. Today and forever, I know that this church is true; that this gospel was restored to the earth through Joseph Smith, Jr. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and in it can be found all the goodness of the gospel and examples of Christ's love and mercy. I know that Jesus Christ lives, loves me, and died for me; so that I can return to live with Him and my Heavenly Father if I but endure to the end. I know that through Christ, I can gain eternal life. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a modern prophet of God who leads and directs this church today. I have a firm testimony of the Plan of Salvation and that we, as families, can be together forever, throughout all eternity.

How I live my faith

Through every event and experience my faith grows. I live my faith everyday of the week, not just Sundays. I try to remember to pray and read my scriptures each day so that I can feel closer to my Heavenly Father. I strive to be an example and to have the image of Christ in my countenance. I was just recently called to be one of the counselors over the women of our church in my area.
