Hi I'm Kristen.

I grew up in California. I love laughing and making other people smile. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college graduate and I work with college freshmen. I enjoy reading, music, theater, movies, and being with my friends. I love the color yellow because it is a happy color! Traveling makes my heart happy; I love to learn about different people and cultures. My family is important to me, and I love being an aunt. Life is meant to be lived, and lived well.

Why I am a Mormon

Knowing that I have a loving Heavenly Father, who sent his Son, Jesus Christ, as my Savior has given me purpose and direction in my life. Because of this knowledge, I am able to try to live my life in a way that I can live with Them again some day. They want each of us to be happy, and that happiness and joy comes as I live according to the teachings and gospel of Jesus Christ. Because Heavenly Father loves us, he has provided the way to become like he is, just as a father wants his children to become like he is. I want to be able to live with my family forever, and through the gospel, this is possible. I know that I am a daughter of God, that I can live with Him and my Savior Jesus Christ forever in joy. I know that this is possible by following the teachings of Christ, by following His example. I know that there is a prophet on the earth today, that he is the mouthpiece of God for the world. I know the Book of Mormon guides and teaches as we read it and apply its teachings. I know that we can have joy in life now, and in the eternities with our families.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith every day. I try to be an example to those I come in contact with on a daily basis. I strive to develop my relationship with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, so that others can come to know Them through knowing me. Studying the scriptures and praying help give me strength and direction as to what to do in my life to more fully live my faith. I have the opportunity to work with others to help strengthen other people in the church, to uplift them, and help them in any way I can. I feel that serving others is a way to show my love for them, to show my love for my Savior, and to become more as He is.

What blessings can we receive through the gift of the Holy Ghost?

We can receive comfort, direction, guidance, inspiration, and answers to prayers through the gift of the Holy Ghost. In times of concern, there is great peace and hope that can also be ours through the precious gift of the Holy Ghost. If worthy, we can have the presence of the Holy Ghost with us at all times to guide us every day. The Holy Ghost helps with spiritual matters, as well as other aspects of life. Show more Show less
