Hi I'm Katie.

I am a mommy of two little boys. I love sweet treats! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been married to my best friend for almost five years. We've been on many fun adventures with school, internships, and vacations. Our latest adventure brings us to the South, where I stay at home with our two sons. I'm trying to be a better cook. I'm trying to be like Jesus by serving and treating others kindly. I want my kids to be good people in this world. When I'm not taking care of my boys I like to read, sing, blog, decorate cakes, and sometimes exercise.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a Mormon home. As a child, I always liked going to church on Sundays because we would sing songs and I got to see my friends. In junior high, I started wondering if I really believed everything I was being taught. I am still a Mormon today because I received my own witness that this is Christ's church upon the earth today. I feel peace and joy when I live the principles and commandments Heavenly Father has given us.

How I live my faith

Being a Mormon, I know that people are watching me. I strive to be kind and genuine always, but especially when I am out and about. Whether I'm at the grocery store or the library, I want others to see that I am a happy disciple of Jesus Christ. I am currently a youth leader in my church. I work with the young women who are 14 and 15 years old. I'm striving to be a good example to these girls that I work with. I want them to feel safe, accepted, and loved. I also want them to feel of the love their Heavenly Father has for them.

What is being a Mormon like?

Being a member of the Mormon church unites you with so many other people around the world. Especially with your local church group. Moving around so much, I love having a group of people with my same values and beliefs. As with anyone, sometimes there are disagreements among church members and feelings get hurt. But I have to remind myself that though people aren't perfect, the Church is. Show more Show less

What are some things that tell to you there is a God?

This beautiful Earth is my testimony that there is a God. Whenever I see a river flowing or look at a tall mountain range, I know that this Earth was created for me to enjoy it. I can trace the Earth being created to my Savior Jesus Christ who created it for me. Each region of this world has different things to discover. I am currently discovering the swampy South. Though there are a few bugs that I may not have created, I am grateful to my Savior and my Heavenly Father for creating this beautiful Earth for me. Show more Show less
