Hi I'm Kathryn

About Me

I am currently a Neuropharmacology PhD student at Boston University. I moved to Boston a few years ago with my husband. I saw the Gospel of Jesus Christ change the lives of people I came to know in Argentina on my mission. I LOVE to swim, bike, and run, and love it even more when you combine all three, I also love skiing. I am a daughter amongst 4 other siblings and I love my family very much.

Why I am a Mormon

 I was born into a family that was already members of the church and it has been such a blessing to be taught the truth of the restored gospel since I was born. When I was around 12 or 13 though, I decided that I needed a personal witness that it was the true church instead of living on the testimony of my family and ward members. I did what Moroni counsels, read the Book of Mormon, and prayed to ask God if it was true and if Joseph Smith was the prophet that restored Christ's church again to the earth. The Spirit has answered me many times and continues to do so, testifying that it really is the truth.

Personal Stories

Why do Mormons go on missions?

 I chose to serve a mission becuase the message of the Gospel being restored brings so much joy to my life, and a greater understanding of why I'm here and what I'm doing. As I have come to know Christ's love, I feel it more for others. This motivated me to want to share this important message with others to spread the love. I loved my mission so much and felt God's guidance with every step. I saw so many miracles becuase of my faith and the faith of those I taught.

How I live my faith

Like many other people, members of the church and those who are not, I am not perfect. However, I strive to live what I learn each day by being an example of the believers. I do so by finding opportunities to serve in small acts of kindness those that surround me. I served a year and a half as a missionary preaching the Gospel to those in Argentina, and have been blessed for that service.
