Hi I'm Kirsten

I'm a college student who loves laughing, traveling, spending time with family, planning, hiking, and reading. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a college student studying Event Management. I enjoy being with my amazing family and friends, hiking, traveling, singing in the car, four-wheeling, reading, watching cheesy movies with my sister, writing, and laughing at nearly every situation. My dreams are to be a great mom and travel the world.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was raised to live the teachings of this church, it was always my decision whether or not I would do the things I had been counseled to do. When I was growing up, I saw how much happier this gospel made me. I knew that no greater joy could come from doing as I had always been taught. I saw this even more so when I moved away from my parents and had to make these choices without any guidance from them. I saw the difference it made when I didn't take advantage of simple things like praying daily or reading my scriptures. Although I do experience hard times, I know that God is there to help me through. He knows me, as well as the rest of His children, very personally. He cares about even the smallest details of our lives. There is no greater truth than this gospel.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by teaching others about what I have come to know for myself. I served as a full-time missionary for the church to invite others to come unto Christ, and I was blessed with the opportunity to teach the wonderful people in Russia. I have learned that I can also live my faith by doing things on a daily basis to please my Heavenly Father. I know that He wants me to be happy, and I have seen how doing what He asks can help me along the path to reaching my potential. When I pray, He hears me very clearly and assists me through specific thoughts, promptings, or sending people just when I need them. I can also find answers and learn attributes through reading the Book of Mormon. One of my favorite things to do is visit the temple as often as I can.
