Hi I'm Kirsten

I'm a forever changing daughter of God who loves to laugh and make people smile. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a future college student. I love music, especially when it involves me singing it, my mom calls me the peacemaker of our family, people often say I'm the loudest person in a room, and I love to make people smile. Becoming a Special Needs teacher, a faithful wife, and a loving mother are my biggest desires.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because it saved my life. I was born into a Mormon family, but because of my biological father's substance abuse and the abuse he inflicted on my mom, my older sister, and I my family never went to church... Once my parents finally separated I felt so empty, but somehow knew that my family needed something more than just divorce. I was 11 years old and got down on my knees and prayed for the first time since I was 5. I didn't know what I was doing, but I felt at peace and felt like someone was wrapping their arms around me telling me that they loved me... In that moment I felt an unconditional love that I had never felt before. I started reading the scriptures I took from a box under my parent's bed and then finally convinced my mom to go to church after a few weeks. On our way home my mom started crying, and I knew why... She was feeling the same loving hug from Heavenly Father I felt weeks ago. I grabbed her hand and told her I loved her and forgave her for the many lonely, abusive years I had to endure. I am Mormon because it changed my life, and gave me the loving dad(the man my mom re-married) I thought I would never have. I am Mormon because I love His unconditional love for me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by realizing that I am not perfect. God doesn't need perfect people, he needs unperfect people trying their best to be the best that they can be. I do this by trying to better myself and others every chance that I get... And when I mess up, I know that my Heavenly Father will forgive me. Because of the way I live my faith, I know that my Heavenly Father loves me for me, and he knows me by name.
