Hi I'm Kathryn

I was born and raised in sunny California. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a daughter of God, a wife, a mother, and grandmother -- and I'm a good friend. I love Jesus Christ and find joy sharing my testimony of His Atonement. I'm a member of His Church and enjoy sharing our beliefs with others, online.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I have come to know for myself - through much study and prayer, that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the Lord's true Church here upon the earth, today.

How I live my faith

I live my faith each day by doing my best to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ and keeping the covenants that I made at baptism and in the temple. I have a testimony of the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ and delight in teaching my own children, grandchildren, and others the principles of the Gospel and encouraging them to live these teachings that they, too, may find joy and happiness in this life and in the next...

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Kathryn
Mormons believe that the family relationships we create here in this life, according to God's plan, can and will endure into the life hereafter. We believe that loving marriages here in this life will continue throughout eternity, if they are in keeping with how God has ordained marriage and are sealed in holy temples of God by those with priesthood authority.

What is being a Mormon like?

Kathryn
It's wonderful! There are so many confusing and conflicting messages in the world today, and knowing that the counsel I receive through living prophets is exactly what my Heavenly Father would have me know in order to navigate this life successfully, is such a comfort. I've been an active member of the Church for over 36 years. I've been married for 35 of those years and my husband and I, have raised our five children with the teachings of the Church. I can honestly say that the joy and blessings that these years have brought are a direct result of making the choice to follow the Savior and live His teachings. Today, I love being a "Nana" and watching my own children share the gospel with their growing families. It is a joy knowing that true happiness in this life is found in our families, as we strive to teach them and be an example of righteous living. Being a Mormon is more than just having membership in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints... It is living those teachings each day of our lives and coming to know for ourselves the joy and happiness of making righteous choices. Show more Show less
