Hi I'm Kris

I study Music Education. I LOVE music, watching movies, playing games (including video games) and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a Sophomore in Music Education. I've played the flute for nine years and look forward to learning to play all the instruments in preparation to become a band teacher (probably high school). I love to read and write stories, listen to just about any kind of music (except maybe rap), and play games. That includes video games. I love talking and listening to other people and can do so for hours on end. I love watching movies and TV shows online, especially anime. I could talk forever about my favorite anime and cartoons with fellow anime and cartoon lovers. I enjoy learning new things, especially foreign languages. I have plenty of background in learning Spanish and took a shot at learning Japanese (which went pretty well while I was practicing it).

Why I am a Mormon

Both of my parents were converts to the Church, so I grew up going to church and hearing the principles taught by the gospel. I wasn't actually seriously interested in participating in and learning more about the gospel until I was about sixteen, when I was called to be the president of my age group in one of our classes. Since then, I've been struggling to establish, mostly to myself, that I do have a testimony of this gospel. I attended a stake conference in which one of the speakers said that there are people who have a testimony but just don't know that they do yet. I think I'm one of those people. Even though I'm still learning the principles of the gospel more thoroughly myself, I do know that it makes a great positive difference in my life when I'm doing what I know I should compared to when I let certain small things slip out of my life, like prayer, scripture study, and attending church meetings.

How I live my faith

I love attending ward activities (especially since they usually have free food). Recently our ward held an activity at one of our leaders' cabins and I played a musical number on my flute that I adapted from a number in our hymnbook. I'm not very confident in my ability to share my faith through speaking, so I take opportunities to do so through musical numbers in our church meetings. I've had some great callings, recently as a secretary for one of our classes and a ward missionary in my home ward. Right now I'm part of our missionary and fellowship council, where we find ways to help increase the unity within our ward as well as finding opportunities to serve and uplift others in ways that represent our love for the gospel of Jesus Christ.
