Hi I'm Kirstin

I grew up in Canada. I've played basketball and soccer for most of my life. I am a convert of 2.5 years. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently living in Western Canada but am about to go serve as a missionary of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I love playing basketball (and pretty much any other sport), in fact, I played on a college team in my first year. I love teaching, whether it is basketball or doctrine; I love seeing people's faces when they finally start getting the hang of things. I love to laugh the longest at a joke that people have long since forgotten. And if what they say is true about laughter being the best medicine, then you can consider me one of the healthiest humans.

Why I am a Mormon

As mentioned previously, I have a passion for basketball and I love that many members of this church also love this sport as well and it has really solidified some of my friendships within the church. To be unified is something that I strive for and I am glad to have found it here in the church with not just sports but spiritual growth as well. In the scriptures it is taught that we must love one another as we love our God; and I could not be more thankful that I found somewhere to feel that love.

How I live my faith

Serving others is something that is near and dear to my heart. From some of my earliest memories, I can remember asking everyone and anyone if they needed help with stuff around the house or with a project they were working on. Even though I wasn't a member of this church at the time, I know it was preparing me to learn of the teachings of Jesus Christ and how to become more like Him. I choose to find someone to serve each day so that someone may feel of God's love for them. Each day is a chance to be better than the last and opportunity to show your faith are always available as long as you are open to them.
