Hi I'm Kristi

I am a missionary in the Adriatic South Mission, a BYU nursing student, I love adventure and to laugh, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the 9th of 11 children in my family. I absolutely love every single one of them and couldn't be more blessed to have grown up in such a great family and such a wonderful home. I am studying to be a nurse at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. I love the knowledge I have gained so far and the great opportunity to be able to work in a field that I am constantly able to love and give of myself to others. I am currently serving a full time mission in the Adriatic South Mission (Albania, Macedonia, Montenegro, and Kosovo). I love being outdoors and being very active. I am so blessed to have a big family that also loves these activities, such as: mountain biking, skiing/snowboarding, boating, swimming, hiking, backpacking, rock climbing, soccer, and pretty much I'm always up for any kind of adventure! I love music. I am empowered when I listen to and play beautiful music.... and I LOVE to laugh!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a mormon because I love the peace that comes through the Holy Ghost when I strive to always do my best. I love feeling my Father in Heaven's love for me, and I know this gospel is true because I have asked Him of its truth and He has answered me. He has given me so much love and happiness in my life... so much purpose and hope. I know that we can find so much happiness in this life, and that true happiness only can come through striving to increase our knowledge of this gospel, and LIVING its doctrines/principles everyday. Through continually learning more of our Savior, Jesus Christ, and His great love and sacrifice for each and every one of us, we can live with our Father in Heaven again and with our Families forever!! It's amazing.

How I live my faith

I KNOW that life is full of adventures! Each one is different and sometimes definitly not easy, but they each allow an oppertunity to grow. Each new challenge allows us to become more like the Savior and to understand and feel more of our Father in Heaven's love for us. I know that I have a loving Father in Heaven that knows who I am and listens to my prayers. He blesses me everyday! I live my faith by ALWAYS trying to remember my purpose in life, my potential as a daughter of God, and work my very hardest to recieve all the blessings he has in store for me. I do this through serving and loving all of His children, my brothers and sisters. I am always praying for strength and guidence, and I really work hard to continually read the scriptures always in order to learn more of and come closer to my savior and recieve answers to my questions. I love being a leader and helping others learn and recognize their personal greatness and potential.
