Hi I'm Kristina

I'm a daughter, a sister, a psychology history student, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am currently a university student enrolled in a double major of Psychology and History. I love to learn and plan on furthering my education in some way once I have completed my undergraduate degree. I am especially interested to discover the many ways my two fields of interest can overlap and compliment eachother. Although I am unsure of what the future holds for me, I am considering getting a master degree, possibly as a counsellor or to carry on in history. I love to travel, and recently studied abroad in London, England. This experienced helped to expand my horizons and gave me a desire to learn more about other cultures, experience more, and a strong desire to see nd appreciate the wonders of this beautiful world. I am blessed to be living at home. I love my family. We enjoy spending time together and I am so lucky to get some free meals. I have two brothers (one who is adopted) and a sister on the Autism Spectrum. Sometimes it is a challenge, but she is such a sweet spirit. I danced and played the piano most of my life. I am especially passionate about ballet and theatre. I want to help people and love event planning, which I do through church and school nearly on a daily basis.

Why I am a Mormon

I love the church and I love the gospel. It is hard to explain in words, but this church and this gospel bring me so much joy! I think the key to that joy is a knowledge of who iam. I know that I am a daughter of God. I know that because of this I have divine potential and that He wants me to succeed in whatever good and virtuous goals I may have. I think that knowldge helps me to live up to all that I can become and strive to be better daily. It also has helped so much in knowing that my self-worth is greater than my appearance or my accomplishments. It comes from within. I know that my Father in Heaven loves me. I also know that he will always love me, regardless of what I have done in my life or mistakes I have made he sent His Son to suffer not only for my sins, but for my sorrows and afflictions. Because of this I know that I always have someone who understands my feelings and pains and loves me anyways. Because I'm worth it. I know this church is true. I feel it in the joy I feel every morning and every night. When I follow the commandments, live the word of wisdom and go to church I feel happy. That's what it all comes down to is joy.

How I live my faith

I live my faith everyday in many aspects of my life. Personally, I rely a lot on my Father in Heaven as throughout my day-to-day life. I pray morning and evening and when I am making major life decisions whether about school or moving I bring my concerns to my Heavenly Father to guide me through. In my education Socially, I use my faith to help myself make wise decisions. I know what I want from my life, in regards to marriage, family and the life I want to lead. Having my faith to back my decision helps to prevent me from being swayed from my goals and plans. I know who I am and what I stand for when I leave my home and this helps me to make choices I am proud of and not what other people expect me to be. It also allows my friends to know what I will do and will not do. I find it helps create a mutual respect and understanding of who I am. At church I work with the young single adults, my peers to organize weekly activities. These activities include a fun, a social and a spiritual aspect every week (like a lesson). I also organize and help organize regional activities and work to include others. I have also enjoyed working with children, singing in the choir and going to many dances and other fun activities. I attend church on Sunday and a class during the week to study my scriptures.
