Hi I'm Kris L.

I grew up in Colorado but now live in Hayden Idaho. I drive a truck for a living. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am forty eight years old and remarried. Between me and my wife we have nine children. I moved to the Pacific Northwest to be closer to my children and this is where I met my current wife. We love boating, camping, motorcycling, and many other outdoor activities. We keep busy canning food, and skiing in the winter.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I can not deny what I know. I know without a doubt that I am a member of the only true Church on this Earth today. I was born into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and had many spiritual experiences at a young age. I felt the power of the Holy Ghost and knew to obey that guidance. Unfortunately during my teenage years I fell away from the Church and it took several years that were filled with loneliness and bad choices before I would come back. I lost my parents and starting thinking about the reason why we are here on this earth. I knew the answer and with the help of my older brother started to live life again. Family is all important to me and the Church. I repented and turned my bad choices into good ones. I am now active in my kids' lives and I am happy to be alive. Life is very short and it is the little choices that can make all the difference in the world. I know that when we help others that are in need that we are only helping God. Being a member takes a lot of work and every minute is worth it.

How I live my faith

When people want to see the Bishop I set up those appointments. I home teach with my step son. We visit one family and call another on the phone because he works out of town. When we go see these members we check to make sure that all their temporal needs are met and we also bring a spiritual message to share with them. It is nice to know that we are all there for each other.

What do Mormons believe about “eternal life?”

Kris L.
Mormons like me believe that as long as we obey the commandments that our Savior Jesus Christ has given us we too can go back and live in the presence of him and our Heavenly Father. Show more Show less
