Hi I'm Kathryn

I grew up in Alaska. I'm a Mother and Wife. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

*I am a Daughter of God! *I am the Mother of two beautiful children! I LOVE being a Mom! *I am the Wife of a loving, supportive husband! He's hot too! :) *I'm an unrecoverable family history addict. *I stay up way too late reading. *Being outdoors breathes life into my spirit. *So does traveling.

Why I am a Mormon

I was blessed to be born to parents who are active members of the Church. I can't imagine life without the gospel. I don't have a "conversion story" and I don't remember when I first gained a testimony of the truthfulness of the gospel. However, I do have a testimony! I love the Plan of Salvation. It brings so much peace and comfort to every aspect of my life. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior. I am eternally grateful to Him for the Atonement. My ultimate goal in life is to become more like Him.

How I live my faith

I have just been asked to serve as the Compassionate Service Leader. I am excited because it will help me become more focused on serving others. One of my goals in life is to have so much love for other people that they can feel that love when they are near me. I believe that service is an vital step toward this goal.

Can husband and wife be together forever? Do you believe that families will live together in heaven?

I believe that a husband and wife can be together forever. There is an ordinance (or ceremony) performed in the Temple called Sealing. Being "sealed" means that we will be married not only in this life (as in "till death do we part") but also that we will remain married after we die. It is a wonderful blessing that is available to those who are willing to follow the commandments that the Lord has given us. This Sealing ordinance is not just for the husband and wives but for the whole family. In the same way Mormons believe that marriages can last for Eternity we also believe that families can be together after this life. It makes sense that when we spend so much of this mortal life in family relationships that we would be able to continue those relationships after this life. This doctrine brings great comfort to those who have lost loved ones. Show more Show less
