Hi I'm Kierstin

I love to do anything that involves being outside in the sun, especially if friends and family are involved. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Cove, UT. Population: cows. Just kidding, there are a few people too. I have a Mom and a Dad, one sister, three brothers, a brother in law, and one dog. Family has always been the biggest blessing in my life. Growing up I loved to play soccer, dance, and read Harry Potter. In middle school and high school I was involved with student government, drill team, and cheer. My senior year of high school I applied for the Ambassador Scholarship at Utah State University. I was fortunate enough to receive this scholarship/leadership opportunity. As an ambassador I recruit at high schools, make phone calls, scoop ice cream, and give lots of Campus Tours. I am currently studying Dietetics, but I am considering switching to Occupational Therapy. I work at the USU bookstore, so I guess you could say I spend a lot of time promoting Utah State. I am currently preparing to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the Spanish Language in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into an LDS family, and I have practiced this religion my entire life. So originally I was Mormon, because that's how I was raised. But, there have come times, when I wasn't sure if I really believed it, and I needed to know for myself. Through experiences, I have come to know for myself, that this is the only true church. It isn't something you can know without study, faith, and prayer. But if you do these things, you can feel the Holy Ghost and KNOW that it is true.

How I live my faith

In our church we are often given different callings. Some of my callings have involved leadership positions among other girls my age and teaching a family history class. One of the biggest ways I am living my faith lately is preparing to serve a mission. It is not required that girls, or anyone for that matter, has to serve a mission. It is a personal choice. It is encouraged that young men go, but for girls, it is left completely up to them. It took me a while to decide to go, because I wanted to make sure I was going for the right reasons. One of my main reasons for going is that, I want others to have the knowledge that I have so that they can experience the happiness and hope it has brought me.
