Hi I'm Kirsten

I'm from Utah. I know God's hand is always guiding me through my life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a freshman in college. I am the third of five daughters in my family and I love my parents and sisters, and my cat, more than anything. I love skiing, golfing, reading, and graphic design. I'm an avid fan of Harry Potter, I never get tired playing the piano, and my dream vacation is an African Safari. Someday I plan to become an Optometrist, but my real dream career is to be a wife and a mother. I'm serving a mission in the Rostov-na-Donu Russia mission Summer 2014-Winter 2015.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has the complete truth. I know that when I pray to Heavenly Father I am being heard and I will always be answered. I'm a Mormon because I love the Book of Mormon, it brings me strength that is hard to describe. It brings me comfort when I'm frustrated, discouraged, or disappointed. It brings me light when I'm confused or doubting. I'm a Mormon because of the living prophet, President Thomas S. Monson. I know that Heavenly Father speaks through His servants on the earth today. I'm a Mormon because of the standards I have. I live my life in a way that some people of the world might find strange, but to me it's the only way to live. I take care of my body, I don't drink alcohol or do drugs. I don't watch, look at, or read naughty media. I don't swear, lie, cheat, or steal, and I stay sexually clean. Basically, I keep the commandments of God because I know that's the only way I can be really happy. I'm a Mormon because it's the only way to have peace. I know that through Jesus Christ, all mistakes can be forgiven and forgotten. I've had personal struggles my whole life, but I've never had to struggle alone because Jesus Christ is right there with me. He's already forgiven me of everything I have done and will do wrong, and I just hold onto Him and am eternally grateful for His mercy.

How I live my faith

Well, I start each day with a prayer to my Heavenly Father. I go through my day hoping to run into someone to serve and I hope that through serving others, they can feel the love that Heavenly Father has for them too. I attend church every week and I love it. I know that I am a daughter of Heavenly Father and that I have a divine purpose in this life. I pray to Heavenly Father countless times a day because I know He is always listening to me and He will always answer me. I love spending time with my family every day and am excited to be with them forever. I also love the scriptures, I feel like they are a personal letter sent from Heavenly Father meant to help us through this life.
