Hi I'm Kjeisten

I grew up in Utah. I'm Native-American, runner, and am serving in the Tallahassee, Florida mission! I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Growing up I did all kinds of sports. Like basketball, baseball, and soccer. What I really developed a passion for is running. When I was in high school I competed for their track and cross country teams. I am also a Native-American. I love my heritage and I do a traditional Native-American hoop dance, and enjoy performing for people. I was also diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when I was 16. Although it's hard to deal with at times I rely on the Lord to help me. I love my family and am really close to them. I like hanging with my friends, and I also like making videos and love to make people laugh or smile.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family with strong beliefs. I was taught about those beliefs all growing up, but I also got to know for myself that this church is true. By praying to my Heavenly Father, reading the Book of Mormon and other scriptures, and by following the example of Jesus Christ, I came to know that this Church is the only true church on this Earth. Living this faith has brought me so much happiness it's hard to describe. I can't imagine not being in this church and I don't want to imagine where I would be without it. I know that we have a Heavenly Father and that His love for us is without measure. I know my Savior and Redeemer, Jesus Christ lives and He is at the head of this Church. I know we have a modern-day Prophet and I know that Heavenly Father has a plan for us to be happy on this Earth and in the life after.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in trying to follow my Savior, Jesus Christ's example everyday. I attend church every week and serve and volunteer for what needs to be done. Growing up in the church I had the opportunity to serve in many leadership callings among youth my age, where I would help to include others and strengthen their faith. I home teach families in my neighborhood and serve them however they need. I live my faith by also serving in Tallahassee, Florida for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I leave my home and family for two years and serve and share the gospel of Jesus Christ to all people. And I am so excited to share this wonderful gospel to others! Living my faith brings me the most joy in life.
