Hi I'm Kristen

I grew up in the Midwest, moved to Utah for school and fell in love with the mountains. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Well howdy. My name is Kristen and I'm not from Texas. I grew up in Ohio surrounded by trees and humid air. Before my mission I went to college in Utah and enjoyed the mountains and dry air. Skiing is awesome and rock climbing/hiking isn't too bad either. I don't brag about most things, but I'm a pretty awesome roller blader. Try not to be jealous. I love all types of curry, and cereal. I don't cook very much, so that's partly why I have such a deep love for cereal. Peanut Butter Crunch is where it's at. Right now I'm serving a mission in the Japan Nagoya mission and it is very different from Ohio and Utah. Japanese is also very different from English and I'm not very good at it. Good thing the Spirit is a better teacher than I am!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a LDS family, but I am a Mormon by choice. Only good things have come from my faith, and I'd be blind if I didn't acknowledge it. Knowing that there will be refreshments after every church gathering isn't too bad, either.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a full time missionary, so I guess that answers that. I get to share my faith with the people of Japan everyday and it's great.
