Hi I'm Kristi

I grew up in Utah. I love to ballroom dance. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I really enjoy ballroom and social dancing, and I first got involved with dance in Highschool. Speaking of Highschool, I really love Biology, and I plan to study it in college. Spending time with my family and friends however is one of my greatest passions. I just love being around people! Just as an bonus afterthought, I was an ice cream server for a while growing up. It can't get much better than that, right? 😄

Why I am a Mormon

At first, I was only Mormon because my parents were. They had brought me up in the ways of the church, and I didn't think much of it to begin with. As I began to grow, I inwardly questioned the truthfulness of what I'd been taught. Was I being fooled? Are all of the incredible teachings reality, or just bedtime stories? Over the last several years, I have struggled with the weight of these thoughts. I realized through my consistent praying, personal scripture study, fasting, church attendance, and so on, that it's okay not to know everything. My testimony has grown slowly over time, and while I still don't know everything for sure, I do know that this is Christ's church, and that he loves us very much. He wants us to live with Him again, and he has provided a way for all of us to do just that. I love this gospel. But even more so, I love whose gospel this is. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

In my ward, I help with activities for girls between the ages 8-11. I have also served young women of my same age group through giving love and care to them in ways that are meaningful as well as helpful for their particular needs. I do my best to serve others when, and where I can.

Do Mormons regard the Bible as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

"We believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly; we also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God." (Article of Faith #8) Show more Show less
