Hi I'm Kristina

I am serving a mission in New Mexico, I love playing basketball and doing pageants, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am almost a graduate of BYU Idaho in Exercise Physiology. When I get back from my mission I will have one semester left there and then on to PA school. I LOVE my family. I grew up being the baby of three girls and then when I was 11, my parents had another child (a boy) and then another (a boy). So right now my parents are 59 and 50 with two sisters 29 and 26, me (22), and two brothers (11 and 7). I love playing basically any sport. My favorites are basketball, lacrosse, ultimate frisbee, and flag football. I played basketball and ran cross country in high school and picked up lacrosse in college, because my best friend is a pro. I am very involved in the Miss America Scholarship Program. This last summer I placed first runner up at the Miss Idaho Pageant. I was planning on trying again this year, but God had other plans for me :) So now I am heading out on a mission in about 5 days. I love having fun. About two years, my two best friends and I won the showcase showdown on The Price is Right. I love animals (if they are outside) and I got the sweetest gift about a week ago (a litter of 4 kittens). It was the perfect way to head out. That is just a little bit about me :)

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, because I can NOT deny the feelings I have felt throughout my life as I have chosen to follow Jesus Christ. He has really changed me and I would be a completely different person if I didn't know Him. The spirit has confirmed to me time and time again that this is His gospel and that we are His children and have the opportunity to return to Him again. I know that Jesus Christ died for my sins, so that I could be cleansed from my own sins as well as that Thomas S. Monson is our living prophet today. I testify that Joseph Smith restored the true gospel to the earth after it had been lost for so many years. Am I truly converted? Every day is hard, but every experience helps me become more and more converted to this gospel.

How I live my faith

I participate in my faith by trying to do all I can as I am given callings. I love teaching others while having fun. It is really important to me that we have fun while we serve.
