Hi I'm Kristen

I am a wife. We have 5 beautiful kiddos. I love sunshine and spending time with my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love being a wife and mother and spending time with family. We like to go camping, hiking, skiing and snowboarding, watching movies, playing board games and pretty much anything we can do to spend time together. I feel like 4-H and scouting are a few wonderful opportunities for teaching my children how to be responsible and love learning new things. I love teaching my children and watching them learn and discover new things for themselves. I feel it is important to teach them to serve others. Life seems to go best when we are helping each other.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a home where we were taught the Mormon beliefs. Learning about Jesus Christ and making choices that were a reflection of His teachings, were something that I experienced every day. We are a close family because of this. As I grew older I knew that the influence of Jesus Christ blesses people and I felt that I should share this with others and serve a mission. As I taught people about Jesus Christ, His restored gospel, and I watched their lives change as they read the Book of Mormon, I was reminded again and again how very real what I was teaching was true. The church is a blessing that only good comes from it. There is a spiritual peace and calmness that comes from following the example of Jesus Christ. The Mormon church teaches that He is our Savior and as we follow His example and apply it to what we do throughout our day we will feel happiness. He is always there for us.

How I live my faith

I served a mission in Maryland/Washington DC for 18 months teaching about Jesus Christ. As I was there I learned we are all so very different and it is so important to love everyone, no matter what. I teach my children about Him as well. We read scriptures and pray together. We attend church on Sundays, I teach the 12 and 13 year old girls at church. I try to volunteer to help wherever I can.
