Hi I'm Kjersti

I grew up in California. I love the sunshine. I'm a full time learner. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love being with and talking to people and learning about their lives. I am attending college at Brigham Young University, and will soon start the graduate program studying media and its effects on relationships. I love France. I love the language, the people, and the food. I love playing soccer and tennis and being in the sun or on the beach. I love watermelon and my favorite color is purple. My husband and I were married in the San Diego Temple and my biggest and greatest goal is to have a family and be a mom. I love writing letters to people and I love saving letters people write me. I hope I can advocate for the preciousness of the importance of family in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I choose to be. I choose to be a Mormon because I know that the teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints are the most true on all the earth today. I have felt the Holy Ghost testify to me of its truth. After praying and fasting and reading the Book of Mormon, I was able to understand more about the Gospel and why it is true.I want everyone to be able to feel the joy and happiness I receive by being a member. I know that Joseph Smith is the Prophet that restored the Gospel to its fullness. I know that he translated the Book of Mormon and that what is written in that book is true. I know that prophets are still on the earth today and that Thomas S. Monson is a direct mouthpiece from God. I know that Christ lives. I know that He atoned for my sins and sorrows and every single person's sins and sorrows as well. I know that He loves me. I know that Heavenly Father is real and loves each of us. I know that He has a plan for us all and that He wants us to return to live with Him again. I know that if I do what is right, then I will be happy. I know families can be sealed for time and all eternity in the Temple. I love my Heavenly Father and I love Jesus Christ. He is my Rock and my Redeemer.

How I live my faith

I try my best to follow the teachings of the prophets and the scriptures. I ask questions and pray to Heavenly Father to help me know what to do. I try to love all people so that they can feel the love of Christ. I try to visit those who need a little more love in their life. I get to teach young children about how much Jesus loves them.
