Hi I'm Kriston

I'm a Chemical Engineer, a dad of 6, an outdoorsman and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am one with a wide range of hobbies and interests. I love the out of doors--climbing mountains, hunting, fishing, water skiing, and backpacking. I love to sing and dance and was recently in community musical theater. When I'm not in the midst of some big event, I enjoy going running with my dog or working in the garden. Most of all, I like to do these things with my family. That's why I got married. That's why I have a bunch of kids.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a lifetime member of this church so I have enjoyed its blessings for my whole life. I especially love the church's teachings about who God is and how my wife, my six children and I can be together forever with Him. This helps me keep my priorities straight on family, service, and clean living rather than getting distracted by a bunch of less important stuff. Sure, we have our struggles, but with the help of these core beliefs, we know that God is on our side, He is going to help us, and we will make it through any challenge. I really believe that as we allow our Heavenly Father into our life, we will have life and have it more abundantly.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying each day to be the best person I can be and to show others by my actions and teachings that being a Mormon will make you happy. Going to church with my family is great. I love having my wife and children surrounding me right close as we sit, listen and learn together. There are eight of us but sitting close together, we only take up four or five seats! My responsibility in the church is to help people that have just recently become members of the church ease their transistion into being a Mormon and feel comfortable with the changes in their lives. It is so neat to see their enthusiasm for the church and making changes to show off their great potential.
