Hi I'm Kristine

My home is in Burley Idaho and I am the mother of 6 children. My passion for travel has led me to visit 42 countries.

About Me

I love teaching children and youth. have a teaching degree for Elementary Education. I run a private dance studio for children. I lead and active life of dancing, skiing, biking, yoga and enjoy exercise. I spend lots of time with my grandchildren and family. My interests include gardening, nutrition, cooking and costume design. I am the perpetual mother of a high school students helping our 6 children and 10 exchange students attend local schools. My son has autism and I have studied every aspect of his condition and integrated many helpful routines in his life.

Why I am a Mormon

I choose to be a member of the church because of the blessing it is in my life. The word of wisdom teaches me how to be healthy, the scriptures including the Book of Mormon give me solid principles of truth by which to live my life. The opportunity to have a living prophet helps me to know Gods will for me and offers inspiration for complex modern day issues. Local church leaders and volunteers help provide a support system to raising a successful family. I appreciate the way members of the church serve and give to others. Being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has given me a true understanding of Christ and how to be the kind of person he would have me be. Life is so good, I treasure each new day.

How I live my faith

I have organized tours for hundreds of local performers to attend international folk festivals. As director I set a standard of excellence in performance and behavior for the young people I work with. I want to represent our country in a positive way. I work with the children in our ward as a teacher in our Sunday meeting. I also visit several women each month to share friendship and a gospel message.

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

I believe that God wants us to be happy. Being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and living its principles has helped me to experience great joy in my life. As I make choices in line with the teachings of the gospel my life is blessed. The church provides many opportunities for leadership, teaching, friendship, activities and personal growth. My children have had wonderful mentors and friends because of their participation in church. Show more Show less
