Hi I'm Kristine

I'm a college graduate. I play the viola and I work as a dental assistant. I'm newly married to a wonderful man and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Growing up with four sisters, one brother and loving parents, there was never a dull moment with our family's fun sense of humor. My sisters and I loved to dress up in past princess Halloween costumes and dance to Mom's record of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker. I picked up the viola at age ten and been playing music since. A few years ago I graduated from BYU-Idaho in viola pedagogy and now performing in a community orchestra. I'm currently working as a dental assistant and enjoying every minute. Within the past year I married my sweetheart, whom I met at a church dance for young single adults. Wanting to be with each forever, we prepared for and married in the Washington Seattle temple. I enjoy reading fantasy and science fiction books and I could watch Pride and Prejudice days on end. I think Reese's Peanut Butter cups is the tastiest invention in the world.

Why I am a Mormon

Being raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, I relied on the testimonies of my parents. Around my high school years I wanted to know if this was His true church. I read The Book of Mormon a little more diligently and prayed to Heavenly Father more sincerely. It didn't happen over night, but over several months I came to know that God lives, that He loves me, and that Jesus Christ is His Son and is my Savior. While attending BYU-Idaho, I tried to keep my life in accordance to Christ's teachings. From doing so, I felt closer to my Savior and was able to receive high grades in my classes. Since then I've learned that as I am faithful to the Lord and keep His commandments, I am blessed without measure and am very happy. Even though I do face challenges and have trials, knowing that God is watching over me helps me to believe that everything will be okay.

How I live my faith

I'm currently serving in my ward as a teacher to the young women, ages fourteen through fifteen. On Sundays I teach the young women in my class lessons on gospel principles, such as honesty, tithing, serving and loving others, chastity. On Wednesday evenings, the young women and the other youth teachers and I participate in a variety of fun activities. Some include, playing board games, learning how to make modest clothes, doing yard work, and just having a good time with each other. I've developed a testimony that I am truly a daughter of a loving Heavenly Father. I also know that He loves all of His children and we are precious to Him.
