Hi I'm Kiersten

I'm a wife, I'm a mother, I'm a student, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi! I grew up in Eastern Washington on a farm with my parents and five brothers and sisters. I attended BYU and got my bachelors in Human Development. I am a returned missionary that served in the Bulgaria Sofia Mission from 2013-2015. Upon returning from my mission I married my sweetheart in the Portland LDS temple a year after coming home. We currently live in Reno, Nevada and are expecting our first child in June of 2017. We love wood-working projects, hiking, camping and spending time with one another. Our dream is to live abroad and have a big family! I love my role as a wife and can't wait to be a mother.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have repeatedly received confirmations in my heart that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true. I know that through baptism we are able to continue our progression to be with our Savior Jesus Christ and with our Heavenly Father again. I know God lives. I know that Christ lives. I know that He Atoned for my sins, weaknesses and pains. This gospel teaches this, and encourages us to live to a higher standard in accordance with His gospel. This is why I am a Mormon. I am a Mormon, and I know it, I live it, and most of all, I love it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing little things by myself and with my husband. We read from the scriptures every day and have frequent prayers together as a couple and personally. We attend church, are very active in volunteering to help in our ward and in our stake and we love to attend the temple. We have enjoyed helping the missionaries with their work and we always find opportunities to invite our friends to church activities and to sacrament meeting! One thing we are passionate about is family history and learning more about our ancestors and taking names to the temple. It's been so cool to learn from the examples of our forefathers!
