Hi I'm Kirstie

Im an outdoors adventurer, a globe trotter, a food enthusiast- fun loving Aussie girl and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in England to South African parents, we then moved to Australia when I was a child so I have travelled a lot, which i am so grateful for! My parents, myself and my brother are all very close and we love the outdoors! We have always spent our spare time on some adventure doing fun crazy things in the outdoors, we also love to stay active and healthy and so have been involved in lots of trail runs and triathlons over the years. I love kids and so I have been blessed in the past to travel around the world nannying for family friends, probably the most mysterious place I've ever been to would have to be the Middle East! At the moment I am preparing to serve a full- time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, after that I plan on going to university. Im so blessed to have an amazing brother serving his Mission at the moment in Tokyo Japan. I love music, singing, the ocean, mountains, my family and beautiful friends!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon simply because I have come to a knowledge for myself that this church is true, that it is the Church of Jesus Christ himself. I know that only through living the teachings of His gospel will we find true, peace, joy and happiness in this life. There is no other place on earth where we can find these things to be true and eternal, I have found this out for myself. I am a Mormon beacause through this gospel, I know that I am a divine daughter of a literal Heavenly Father who loves me and wants me to become the best woman I can be and so he sent his Son Jesus Christ to atone for the sins of all the world so that we can be cleansed from all our wrong doings. Through him we can reach greater heights and achieve greatness because of HIS everlasting love, which love is only the purest of pure and I have felt it so sweetly in my life, he answers my prayers and carries me when I can no longer carry myself, he magnifies my efforts and enables me to flourish in everything I do. I know that as I follow Christ's restored gospel upon the earth that I will be lead to peace in this life and eternal life in the world to come which knowledge is so comforting and so motivating for righteousness in my life and also to be steadfast and immovable in what I know to be true. I am a Mormon because I know with all that I am, that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ, it was indeed written by prophets called of God and it testifies of Jesus Christ. It works hand in hand with the Bible and adds more truths and insights to our knowledge of the Saviour and of how to live in this life so that we can be blessed and become like God. I know also that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and that He restored Jesus Christ's true church back onto the earth by the guidance and instruction of God the Father himself. Being a Mormon and having this knowledge, this joy in my life, means absolutely EVERYTHING to me and I hold it all so closely to my heart.

How I live my faith

I am a ward missionary in my home ward and so I am always out helping others learn of the gospel, I often teach the gospel principles class on sundays at church. I love to serve others and help out with anything where I can so often I am busy with that. Every fortnight I go with another woman from church to go visit people that may need to be uplifted or to share with them a spiritual message or even to just be a listening ear.
