Hi I'm Katie

I study theatre and dance. I teach high school Italian. I am a lover of New Mexican skies and green chile. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife and soon to be mother. I am a High School Italian teacher. I love to run and do most anything outdoors. I have danced most of my life. I am a graduate student in Theater Education.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints not only because I believe it is the restored church that Jesus Christ himself established on the earth thousands of years ago, but because it brings me so much joy to be a part of an organization where I can serve my fellow man and come to know who Jesus Christ was by becoming like him. I am Mormon because that means I can share what I know with those I love.

How I live my faith

I am a leader of the youth in my congregation. I work with young women ages 12 to 18 and I love it! We organize wholesome recreational weekly activities, dances, sporting events, and worship meetings. It is such an honor to teach these young people about Jesus Christ and who they can turn to in the time of need. It is important to me to share what I have come to know through study and prayer as it strengthens my own belief and lifts them up to an understanding of their Savior as well. I watch the choices they make each day at school as I teach many of them at the local High School and I am honored to be a part of a group who is not afraid to stand up for what is right even when it is not popular.

How can faith in Jesus Christ influence us in our marriages and family relationships? in our friendships?

Understanding that Jesus Christ came to earth because none of us would be perfect and able to enter God's kingdom helps me understand that I am not perfect and neither is my husband, but that it is okay! I am able to be patient and accept that we are all trying our best. I understand God loved me so much that he sent his Son, and I in turn have a greater love for my family. I am happy because I know who I am and where I am going in life and because of that knowledge I enjoy a beautiful marriage that is centered around the goal of doing good to all men.
