Hi I'm Kirstin Mickelson

I grew up in California. I like to run. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student studying computer engineering. I'm thinking about becoming a teacher after I graduate. I love to run, read, sing, and spend time with my family. I'm currently taking a year and a half break from school in order to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Japan.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I am happier when I follow the counsels of the gospel. I know that this church is true and it is the reason that I am the person I am today. The gospel makes me a better person and brings me so much joy. I know that Jesus Christ gave up his life so that I can repent of my sins and return to live with my Heavenly Father and my family once more. I am so grateful that I have been able to find the truth and have the gospel in my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church, reading my scriptures, and serving my community. I will be serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Japan for 18 months. I'm so excited to be given this opportunity and to be able to serve the people of Japan.
