Hi I'm Katherine!

I enjoy learning new things and being creative. I also find joy in helping and serving. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love learning new hobbies and interests. I am very excited because I know that even though its hard I know that some day I can. I am temple sealed to my husband. We love each other very deeply. I just finished a four-year degree from a local college. My major was Sociology. From this I studied many different social problems in the world today, such as racism, poverty, and global health. I also learned demography meaning that I can appropriately measure population attitudes. I am very excited with where my life my or may not lead me. I have had the blessing of being growing closer to my family because of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saint is true. I have sealed this testimony in the silence of my heart. I knew that I had to join the true The Church of Jesus Christ on The Earth Today because I went to my friend's house who is Mormon. Within their home resides the most joyful, peaceful feeling. I try to do my best at everything, and sometimes life gets hard, but I know that the Lord is there for me. Jesus Christ loves me.

How I live my faith

I am a nursery leader along with my husband. We are learning together the importance of families, especially how important it is to teach from a very young the importance of having Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and The Spirit in their lives.

The Book of Mormon teaches the same Gospel as the Bible, but tells another testimony of Jesus Christ through through the history of the Nephites. The Book of Mormon is a companion to the Bible. Joseph Smith obtained the Book of Mormon through a revelation from God. Show more Show less
