Hi I'm Kristopher

I'm currently a Missionary. I plan on going to Utah State University. I like Star Wars, love my family, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love my family. They're the most important people in my life. I like to play music. I think that Star Wars is awesome, (especially the original trilogy). Right now I'm serving a mission in the Reno Nevada Mission. As a missionary, I share what I know about Christ's Gospel. It has blessed my life by helping me focus on my family, and shown me how to be truly happy. The reason that I'm a missionary is that I want to share what I've been able to experience with others.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? I was very blessed to be born into the church. I think that gave me a bit of a jump start. I have an incredible mother and father who take every opportunity they can to teach me. I think that I piggybacked on their testimony until I was twelve or thirteen. I began to be cognizant of the importance of knowing about the truth of my belief for myself. So I read the Book of Mormon and prayed about it. I can testify as well as I know how that it is truly the word of God. That no book has ever created such a change in my attitude, in my thoughts, actions, or life. Jesus Christ truly is the son of God. I can testify of his atonement, and my gratitude for repentance in this life. I am very much human, and make many mistakes. However, through Christ I know that I can become clean again. I have a testimony of modern-day revelation, and the importance of our Prophet Thomas S. Monson. I know that he speaks the word of God. I know that Joseph Smith restored the gospel of Christ to this earth. I know that God has a purpose for me. He instituted his plan of happiness to help me fulfill my immeasurable potential. I love my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ with all my heart and soul, and want to follow in his example. When I am obedient to his laws and commandments, I am happy. I'm so grateful for the blessings in my life, the greatest being the Church.

How I live my faith

Right now the way that I am living my faith is through doing Missionary Work. The reason that I do missionary work is that the Gospel brings me joy. It makes things simply work out, and I want to share that with people.

What do Mormons believe about family?

The family is the most important institution that exists in this life. Mormons believe that families aren't formed just until you die, but that you continue to be connected with your loved ones for eternity. Show more Show less
