Hi I'm Kristen

I grew up in Ohio. I love cereal. I'm a soon-to-be missionary. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am twenty years old. I grew up in Vincent, Ohio and have been a member of the church my entire life. I have two wonderful parents, one beautiful sister, and one crazy brother. I attended Southern Virginia University for a year, but I am putting my education (and my life) on hold to serve the Lord in a full time mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I love being apart of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I was blessed to be born into an amazing family and grew up in a Christ centered home. My parents have taught me the gospel of Jesus Christ ever since I can remember, but there had to come a time where I had to make the decision for myself. I am Mormon because I know with everything in me that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true. I know that I have a loving Heavenly Father who knows me perfectly and hears and answers my prayers. I know that I have a Savior, Jesus Christ, who atoned for the sins of all mankind so that we might be able to become clean and live with God again. I know that the Book of Mormon is true. I have read it time and time again and have prayed to know of its truthfulness. Each time I feel the gentle influence of the Spirit confirming to me that it is indeed God's word. I know that Joseph Smith saw God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ and restored the Savior's church back to the earth. I know that we have modern day prophets and apostles that communicate with God to give us counsel and direction. And I know that through Him, families can be together forever.

How I live my faith

I love this gospel so very much, and it is because of the love and happiness it gives me that I am preparing to serve in the Rio de Janeiro Brazil Mission. I will be dedicating eighteen months of my life to diligently serve the Lord and share the gospel with his children.
