Hi I'm Kierstin

I grew up in West Virginia. Enjoy the sunshine :) and I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, a Mormon.

About Me

I am a single adult but come from a large family. I have 21 nieces and nephews! I love playing tennis, jogging, spending time outside, baking sweets, and spending time with my friends and family. I attended college at BYU and then lived in San Antonio, TX for a few years. I'm working in a dental office back in West Virginia.

Why I am a Mormon

I did grow up in a Mormon family. However, I remember when I prayed to know if Joseph Smith was a prophet. I remember the feeling I felt and I knew that it was all true. The Book of Mormon, the Plan of Salvation, living prophets. It's the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that it is what my Father in Heaven would want me to be doing. Living the gospel and remembering my Savior, Jesus Christ, has brought me happiness. There will always be times of trouble, in our lives (from our own making or just circumstance), but the gospel gives me hope.

How I live my faith

The first thing that comes to mind is probably similar to most others of any faith - Prayer. Praying and keeping communication with my Heavenly Father helps me to remember who I am, His child, and gives me strength to do the things I need to. Also, reading my scriptures, the Bible and the Book of Mormon help me keep my faith strong. I try to do and say things that are uplifting. Careful with the music I listen to and the movies and TV shows I watch. I also try to take care of my body by eating healthy, getting exercise, and abstaining from alcohol, tobacco and other drugs. In the church I go to, I often teach the primary children's class of "Sunbeams" (4 year old children). Last week our lesson was called "I am grateful for my Ears". It was a wonderful experience.
