Hi I'm Kristen

I grew up in Kansas. I want to be a pharmacist. I am about to serve a mission in New Mexico. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Kristen. I live in Idaho, and just finished my junior year of college. I hope to complete pharmacy school someday. I recently received my mission call, and will be preaching the Gospel in the Spanish language to the people of New Mexico. I could not be more excited! I love music, and playing the piano. I love playing games with my family, and chasing my nieces and nephews.

Why I am a Mormon

The number one reason why I am a Mormon is because of what is taught about the family. We know that families can be together forever. This knowledge brings a great comfort. I know that no matter what this life may bring, they are mine for eternity, as long as I do what is right. I have a two-year-old baby sister that is my favorite human. I know that heaven would not be heaven without her, or any of my siblings, parents, or family members. My family is something that is priceless to me, and the teaching of eternal families is something that makes so much sense to me. Also, I can testify that as I have lived the values and truths taught by the Church, I have found an intense amount of peace and happiness, that I have not been able to find anywhere else. I know that what this church teaches is true, because I have felt it. I have seen miracles in my life. I know that there is a higher power leading and guiding my life to happiness. Sometimes I think I know what will bring me happiness, but I am always led to something else that brings me happiness that I never thought possible. This Gospel makes me happy. This Gospel gives me purpose. This Gospel allows me to be with my loved ones, forever. This is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I believe that every decision I make shows how I live my faith. I know that serving others will bring happiness, so I do it. Especially in my job, I am able to interact with numerous people. I have made an honest effort everyday to be as kind as possible to them, because I know they are going through trials just like me. I also love to play the piano, and share the sweet spirit of music. Music brings people together like nothing else. I love serving on counsels with my fellow saints, and working towards common goals, and service projects for those who are in need.
