Hi I'm Kristen Drahos

I am born and raised in California. I'm a Mother. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am a Mother. I am a Registered Dental Assistant. I enjoy reading, crafting, watching movies, and spending time with family. I enjoying being a Stay at home Mother. I enjoy learning to cook and bake new things.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a recent convert to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I was raised a Christian but was never strong in my faith. When I met my husband he was less active, and 3 year later we got married and had our first daughter. We started looking for a church to raise our daughter with a foundation of Christ, but never looked to this church. Through the encouragement of our Bishop the missionaries started coming over and teaching us the lessons. My ultimate decision to be baptized came when I found out the truth of Eternal Families. Being a new mom this was everything I needed to hear. We started attending church and I was so overwhelmed with how open and friendly everyone was to me. I knew I was home and was meant to be here. By seeing the way people in our ward carried themselves it was a great example to me. I strive everyday to be an example to all my family and live the best I can so that I may enter the temple and be sealed as an Eternal Family. Following Christ and his example has made me a happier person with a new found light in life.

How I live my faith

I participate and enjoy Visit Teaching, where I can make new friends and get to know people better. I enjoying leading Activity Days and participating on the Enrichment Committee.

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Kristen Drahos
Like any other normal people. However there are certain things we refrain from doing and make more of an effort to do. We refrain from drinking alcohol and partaking in any illegal drugs. In my family we make an effort to participate in Family Home Evening where we can learn more about the gospel and spend quality family time together. We make an effort to be an example by the way we live and lead our lives. We refrain from watching, listening, or speaking/acting in any way that may be displeasing to Heavenly Father; however, were not perfect and make mistakes daily. Show more Show less
