Hi I'm Katie Thygerson

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a stay at home mom of four; I have a degree in education and taught drama and writing classes in at the junior high level before staying home with my kids. I like theater, music, movies, sewing, quilting, reading, working in the yard, organizing stuff and helping my husband and kids. :)

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church; my parents were both Mormon. I was raised Mormon, and I know that upbringing helped me make better choices through my teenage years than I might have otherwise. Everyone has to find their own testimony sometime, have their own personal conversion, and I experienced that during my college years as I felt the love of God for myself and everyone around me.

How I live my faith

It is always a work in progress to live my faith; I pray, I study scripture, I attend meetings and participate in my ward (congregation) by working in the children's program, helping with cub scouts, planning activities for the families, checking in on other people and their needs, and other ways. I love that the gospel reminds me that we are all one big family, that God loves all of us, and that I should treat everyone with respect and love. I apprecitate that when I fall short, I can keep trying to be a better person. I have a broader perspecitve of what is really important in life that I can remember on days when everything is not perfect, or even close to perfect!!
