Hi I'm Kristin

Things I enjoy are, reading, journaling, talking, eating new things or at new places, making crafty things, making bows, taking things that aren't really anything and making them into something, saving money, spending money, traveling, spending time with family, laughing, drinking Diet Coke, eating ice cream or frozen yogart, swimming, listening, and serving...

Why I am a Mormon

I am a memember of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because I KNOW my Savior and KNOW that this is HIS true church. Because of my Savior I have a direction and purpose not only for me but for my family too. I have a testimony of the Book of Mormon and apprecaite the daily guidance it can provide. I believe in Joseph Smith and in the Book of Mormon. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a living prophet. I know that when I keep the commandments and follow the words of the prophet My life goes more smoothly. I know that I receive blessings by being a faithful Mormon. One of the things I love the most about our church is that we are sealed as a family in the Holy Temple and can live with our families for eternity, not just 'til death do us part.' I love my Husband and Children and cannot imagine life without them! I am so thankful that I have the opportunity to further our family in the afterlife. I am not a perfect person. I make mistakes daily and I know that is ok. As long as I try to be the best person I can be, I know that my Savior Jesus Christ will help me with my shortcomings. I know that through the gift of the Holy Ghost, I can be guided to make good decisions. I will strive continually to be like my Savior and emulate his light.

How I live my faith

I have served with the youth (12-18) in our church. I have served with the children (18 mon-12yrs) I have planned activities and events for the Women and for the whole Ward (Men Women and Children.) I have made countless meals for people who need them, I visit two women in their home every month to share a spiritual message and help them if they need it. I babysit others' children time after time. I have attended many meetings and kept track of attendance in the girls youth program and the womens programs. I volunteer when needed, I donate when needed. I try to give as much as I can in time or things. With each act of service or different area I serve in I learn something new. Countless children and adults alike have taught me many things and made me a better person. You never know what you will learn from an experince but I am happy to say, I can always find something good from even rotten experiences.

Does The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints endorse political parties?

The Church has made the following public statement on multiple occasions prior to major elections: “Principles compatible with the gospel are found in the platforms of all major political parties. While the Church does not endorse political candidates, platforms, or parties, members are urged to be full participants in political, governmental, and community affairs.” I love voting and taking an active role in government. I appreciate being able to make my own choices and support those I fill are good candidates. Show more Show less
