Hi I'm Kirstie Walker

19 years old, from England. Currently serving as a missionary in the Utah Ogden Mission.

About Me

I was born in Birmingham and lived there until we moved to Huddersfield when I was 11. I was born into the church along with my brother and sisters. Unfortunately i am the only active child in my family. I finished college with a qualification in childcare learning and development. I then worked in a nursery for a year and am now currently serving as a missionary for the church, in the Utah Ogden Mission. I love being able to teach people about the gospel which I know to be true and know brings great joy to all those who accept it.

Why I am a Mormon

When I reached the age of about 15-16 I realised that attending church meetings wasn't enough, i realised the importance of actually living the gospel - in all aspects of my life. I had experiences both emotionally, physically and spiritually which helped me realise that there were specific changes and improvements that I needed to make in order to live as a better follower of Christ. Making these step by step improvements and changes to my life have helped my testimony to grow, and I have learnt for a surety that this is the true church of Jesus Christ. Living the gospel and being an active member of this church does bring much joy and happiness. Having a strong relationship with our Heavenly Father has provided me with a lot of comfort because he understands how we feel, he knows us so well and he is always there to listen to us and he does answer our prays. We are taught that we will experience ALOT of trails and adversity during our mortal life, and I know that being a Mormon will mean that I will have the strength and ability to endure these trails and come out of them stronger than I was before.

How I live my faith

As a member of the church of Jesus Christ we strive to live our lives righteously and follow the example that Christ set. The church teaches us ways that we should live and it helps us members to structure our life's so that we can be develop and grow physically and spiritually - bringing us closer to our Saviour and to become more like him. I love the quote "Live everyday of your life so that your example may be worthy of imitation" from Brigham Young ( A latter-day prophet). I know that following Jesus Christs example and teachings is the single most important thing we can do in our lives.
