Hi I'm Kristen!

I'm a Mormon. I know it, I live it, and I love it!

About Me

I am currently going to college and majoring in Elementary Education. I love to do anything active and getting to know people. I love to dance and sing. Music is one of my passions. I love to play sports and to have some good, honest, pure fun. Laughing is one of my favorite things in life. My family is my top priority and I love spending time with my younger siblings. I am currently preparing to serve a full time mission for 18 months in the South Carolina Columbia Mission. I am more excited than I have ever been!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this Church. And have always been a member. I always loved to hear the stories of Jesus and to learn about our beliefs while growing up. We believe that every girl and boy are sons and daughters of a Heavenly King. That makes everyone a Prince and Princess. I remember as a little girl I always wished that all the little girls could know that they are Princesses. As I have gotten older I have read the Book of Mormon and found out for myself the truthfulness of this gospel. I know with all my heart that it is true and I strive to teach others about it so that they can have the peace and joy that I have everyday from the Love of my Heavenly Father and Savior, Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I teach the children in my ward who are at the ages of 4 and 5 about our gospel and the teachings of Jesus Christ. I am an example of Jesus Christ by following his teachings in my everyday life. I keep my standards high and don't lower them or let them falter at all. I love to answer questions that my friends may have about the Church and encourage them to look into it more and to try to read the Book of Mormon. I know who I am and am proud to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

The best way to get to know our Father in Heaven is through prayer. Prayer is a way that we can talk to him and let him know about our struggles, our fears, and our joys. He wants to hear from you. Another way is to read and study the scriptures. They contain stories from others who have witnessed, and know that Heavenly Father is true and loves us. I know He loves me and I pray morning and night so that I can talk to Him and gain a greater relationship with Him. He loves us more than we know and he wants us to know Him. Show more Show less
