Hi I'm Kristen

Born and raised Californian. I love the outdoors. I am an 80's pop rock fan. I'm a missionary and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Life is for living and thats what I'm about. Every day is a new adventure. I love trying new things and learning each moment. I am working on a degree in Elementary Education. I love children. They are so adventurous and curious. I want to be able to teach them the wonderful things about our world and give them a drive to never stop learning. I have been on a mission in Florida since February of 2011. It is the most rewarding thing I could choose to do right now and there is never a boring day.

Why I am a Mormon

I am grateful to say that my parents introduced me to the gospel. But we all know that we as people come upon a vital point in our lives where we choose what we believe. I have come upon that moment and have faced it head on. I know that this is the true church of Christ on the earth. I know that because every moment I choose to follow it's teachings I come closer to God. I can feel him strengthen me as I read the Book of Mormon and so many other wonderful books of scripture. I have felt the Holy Ghost tesitfy to me everyday that this is the true church. It is sometimes very simple as I pray and other times it is as I listen to the prophets of today speak to us and can not doubt that what they are sayin is true. Heavenly Father never lets us go without that knowledge of truth; if we are willing to test it out and ask him (Alma 32). No trial I have ever had in this life has been impossible as long as I have trusted in the truths I know. Being a member of this church has taught me that every question has a answer and I never need to feel lost and alone.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a full-time missionary. I will do this for a total of 18 months. Every day I get up, put on a name tag and travel around the city. We talk to everyone we see, praying that they will feel the spirit as we talk to them and desire to know why in the world we smile so much. We come out to teach people of what has defined our entire lives and made us want to be better everyday. I love this time I have to help others. Doing service is what gives us the best feeling of accomplishment and the greatest service we can do for others is testify of Christ and help them to be closer to him in all that they do. My favorite things about missionary work is watching people grow in their desire to change, and watch as their confidence in God and themselves grows to give them strength to do miracles.
