Hi I'm Kathryn

I went to college in NYC, dance professionally in the Midwest, and I am definitely Mormon

About Me

I just graduated. Turns out the real world is a great place! I grew up in Utah, left home after high school and spent 4 years in glorious NYC. Got a job with a professional dance co. in Ohio and now get paid to do what I love. I miss being a student, living in dorms, and all my best friends, but thank goodness for my current roommates (wonderful) and facebook (great way to keep in touch). My favorite part of studying dance intensively was figuring out how I could share my joy and happiness in the gospel through this art. Psalms 149:3: "Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp." From plies to Graham repertory, I want to praise the Lord in every hop and skip.

Why I am a Mormon

The Church of Jesus christ of Latter Days Saints is the same gospel that Christ established when He was on the earth. The simplicity gives my life perspective and has helped me in every transition- in every moment when I was lonely or overwhelmed.Whenever I had a decision to make. I know where I'm going, I know where I came from, and I know that the Lord will direct my path because He loves me. I am Mormon because I have felt the influence of the Holy Ghost in my life and it has testified to my heart that this is the restored church on earth today. I believe that this church has the fullness of the gospel and that is why I want to share it with those I love (and those I haven't ever met!)

How I live my faith

I attend church every Sunday for three hours and (no lie!) it's my favorite time of the week! I get to worship my Father in Heaven who gives me everything! I get to lift my voice in hymns with my brothers and sisters, and be taught in spoken word and classroom discussion. I really, really love it. No one at church is paid for the work they do. We all are given callings and an opportunity to serve the congregation ("ward" in Mormon lingo). Sunday services are completely open to the public, come visit us!

Are Mormons Christians?

Kathryn
Absolutely! The full name of our church is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. "Mormons" is a nickname. Christ is at the center of our religion. He is my Savior, King of kings and Lord of lords. Without Him, we cannot be saved in the Kingdom of God. Show more Show less

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Kathryn
Ancient Prophets. It was translated in modern days by the Prophet Joseph Smith. I know this is true because I have read it, and asked the Lord. I felt a warm reassurance and I can feel the spirit every time I read this sacred book. Show more Show less
