And welcome to my little neck of the virtual neighborhood, my name is Kristin Schouten and it is so nice to virtually meet you! I am so glad that you found me and my blog in this huge virtual world.
The reason why I wanted to start this blog is something that is hard for me to admit to. I have wanted to start a blog for this specific cause that I will get to later, but it is such a hard topic to talk about now a days that I was feeling extremely vulnerable and very uncomfortable sharing. But I know that will vulnerability comes growth and without vulnerability we wouldn’t be able to experience growth.
I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, also known as Mormons. Last weekend we had our annual General Conference weekend were all of the members of the Church around the world gather together with family and friends to watch our Prophet, and Apostles share messages of hope for our days. While watching these amazing talks that were given I had this overwhelming feeling inside of me that I needed to start a blog so that I can share our gospel and teachings with you as well as for me to learn and grow as well. So this is the reason I am so vulnerable and so scared to start this blog, but I am so extremely excited for this new adventure.
My hope for this blog is to share with you gospel teachings that I have learned for my own life, I promise to not make it “preachy” I just want to share with you thoughts, feelings, and experiences that I have gone through in my life and hope that what I have learned and experienced can help you in your lives. But for those of you that don’t want to hear the gospel side of things, I will also be sharing some graphic designs that I have been working on as I start my freelance company, as well as some brush lettering and other crafty things that I am working on.
I hope that I haven’t scared you away and that you will join me on my journey as I create myself through life experiences.
