Hi I'm Kirsten

I'm a wife and mother who enjoys meeting new people, crafting, fixing things around the house, and service. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Snowflake, AZ-a small Mormon town. It was a wonderful opportunity to make great friends with the same beliefs I have. Since I've been married have two boys of my own, we have moved around quite a bit which has enriched my life with opportunities to meet new people. I love to learn how others strive to and overcome adversity in their lives. It confirms to me the need for a Savior who understands and loves each one of us.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have come to know for myself that Joseph Smith's simple, faith-filled prayer was answered by Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ when he was just fourteen years old. Reading the Book of Mormon and the Bible confirm this truth. Growing up in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was a blessing in my life, but I don't think I appreciated it then as much as I do now. I have been able to build upon a gospel-centered home and apply it to my own family as I have married and have children of my own. Living a life worthy to enter the Temple is the most important blessing in my life. I will always be grateful to my parents for guiding me to live my life worthy to someday enter the Temple and make covenants with my Heavenly Father that has brought so much peace and joy into my life. As I return to the Temple, my testimony of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints deepens. Reading my scriptures and serving my family and others helps me recognize my weaknesses. I am so blessed to know that my Savior has atoned for my sins and that I can repent daily and be made clean through His grace.

How I live my faith

One day at a time. My faith in Jesus Christ keeps me centered on a well-balanced and fulfilling life. The gospel is all about family so I try to view my actions or inactions in terms of how it will affect my family. I have come to realize I have to start with me-take care of my spirituality first, then I can see more clearly to help fulfill my family's needs and serve others. Reading my scriptures daily and taking time during the day to approach my Heavenly Father in prayer invites the Spirit to guide my actions throughout the day. I feel more productive, confident and calm as I put the Lord first each day.
