Hi I'm Kate

I'm a brand new wife. I'm a 5th grade school teacher. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Having graduated from college recently, it was difficult to find a job teaching. After many hours of searching and prayer, I landed the best job ever-- teaching adorable 5th graders at a local charter school. After I got the job, I met the man of my dreams and we were married after a wonderful courtship. I'm enjoying life with my best friend.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up going to church with my family, but that isn't why I'm a Mormon. I was given a challenge to read the whole Book of Mormon over the summer while I was twelve years old. As I read, I was drawn in by the stories and felt happy. This was just the beginning of my testimony. I have read the Book of Mormon many, many times since, and every time, my testimony grows. It has helped me develop my testimony in many other areas. I believe because I have felt the Holy Ghost bear witness. That is why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

It is the little things that define me. I pray many times a day, most of the time in my heart. I read scriptures daily as well. I strive to be more like my Savior by setting small goals every week. One goal recently was to pray for charity and strive to love my students more. Let me tell you, it worked!

What is the Law of Chastity?

The Law of Chastity requires that we have complete fidelity, both in mind and body, to our spouse.  Having just been married to the most wonderful man ever, I have strong feelings toward the Law of Chastity. My husband and I have kept this law in our single years in hopes of finding each other someday. And now that we have, we delight in having been completely faithful to each other. I know I will never have to worry about fidelity with my husband because we both love our Father in Heaven. That love is stronger than any lust might be. I'm so grateful Heavenly Father has protected me from so much potential heartbreak by giving me this law. If I follow it, as does my husband, we will be eternally happy together. Show more Show less
