Hi I'm Kristen

I'm a lawyer. I also love to travel and to be outdoors. I'm a wife and a soon-to-be mother. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I got married almost a year ago and we are expecting our first baby. I recently quit my job as an attorney and am planning to be a stay-at-home mother. Although I loved being a lawyer and plan to return to the workforce someday, I'm excited for this new phase of my life. Being a full-time mom will undoubtedly be tiring, demanding, and overwhelming. But it will be rewarding. What an awesome responsibility it will be to be entrusted with the care and upbringing of one of God's children. I love reading, cooking, and playing the violin and piano. I also love being outdoors. It's one of the places I feel closest to God. Whether I'm hiking, camping, kayaking, or just going on a walk, it's easy to feel God's love for me when I am surrounded by His beautiful creations.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because the gospel just feels right and make sense. I am happiest when I pray daily, read the scriptures, attend Church, keep the commandments, and try to be like Christ. I have a better perspective on life and am better equipped to handle my responsibilities, obligations, and trials. The gospel also has the answers to the big questions in life - Why are we here? Where are we going? Why do bad things happen to good people? The gospel provides direction and meaning to my life. It just makes sense that we are all children of God, that God would have one perfect gospel for all of his children, that God would call prophets in our day just like in Biblical times, and that families can be together forever.

How I live my faith

My husband and I teach Sunday School to the 8-11 year olds in our congregation. I love working with children and hearing their simple testimonies of Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. They know that they are children of God and that their Savior loves them. I also conduct a program call Activity Days once a month with 8-11 year old girls. Together, we participate in activities that involve serving others, developing our talents, or increasing our knowledge of the Gospel.
