Hi I'm Kristian Thurber

I enjoy learning and am a history buff. I am an Eagle Scout. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy going camping, as that was something I shared with my Dad since I was young. History is a great passion for me, I love to read about, study/analyze and discuss it with anyone who wants to do so. I have a real interest in engineering, particularly machines and hope to receive a degree in mechanical engineering in the future.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised as a Mormon and because of that I would get told "you are a Mormon only because your family wants it and you are brainwashed/weak/ignorant for doing what your family tells you to do.". Nothing can be farther from the truth.

How I live my faith

I was very involved with the Boy Scout troop that my ward (local Mormon church); to the point that I reached the rank of Eagle scout. I also served on a committee that plans youth activities where youth from different wards would get together and do the activity. I currently am preparing to become a full-time missionary for the church.
