Hi I'm Kiersten.

I'm a missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm Kiersten! I'm a daughter, a big sister, and a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I love the outdoors, reading, anything active, and my family. I am currently serving in the Hungary Budapest mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe in Jesus Christ. I believe He came to this earth, a humble example of righteousness and charity, to show and teach men how to return to our Father in Heaven. I know that as we pattern our lives after His, we will find happiness and we can be worthy of divine guidance and direction. I also know that our Savior performed the most selfless and transcendent act of all time, The Atonement, in which he took upon the sins and afflictions of all men for us. Through the gift of the Atonement we can all obtain refuge from adversity, liberation from anguish and addiction, and through our Savior's mercy receive forgiveness for our sins. Through and with Christ we can exercise weakness into strength. Christ can be our comforter and companion, can heal broken hearts, and can be our greatest source of strength. I know Joseph Smith restored Christ's gospel to the earth, and that its organization is known as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I know the Book of Mormon is true, and is not supplementary, but rather complementary to the Bible. I know we have a modern-day prophet, President Thomas Monson, that leads and guides our church today. I know that through the Gospel I can be with my family for eternity. The blessings of living the true and restored gospel are beautiful and innumerable. I know Christ's gospel is on the earth today. I have received personal and irrefutable witness of this, and I know this gospel is true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by always striving to draw nearer to my Savior, Jesus Christ. I try to do as He would by treating others kindly, studying the scriptures daily, and by trying to be a good example every day. My love for the gospel and the positive impact it has had on my life has compelled me to serve a mission, so that others may experience the same happiness and purpose I have found.
