Hi I'm Katie

And I am proud to be a Mormon.

About Me

I love sports, reading, photography, learning and teaching. I've been a member of the LDS religion all my life, but became truly converted during my college experience.

Why I am a Mormon

The gospel helps me to be a better person. It helps me to do my best in life- both temporally and spiritually. The gospel helps me overcome sin and temptation that come before me, I am then able to continue to progress and come closer to Christ.

How I live my faith

I recently had an experience that strengthened my faith in Heavenly Father and His attention to the details of my life. At work, I would give presentations in front of groups, but was always nervous and struggled through them. My boss brought it to my attention one day, and said it was an area I needed to improve on. Shortly thereafter, I was asked to teach a Sunday school class during church. My nerves got the best of me for the first few weeks, but after that I became more comfortable teaching and presenting in front of large groups. I studied the lessons each week and grew my testimony of the Bible, the gospel, of Heavenly Father's love for me. I was also able to translate this experience into my work life and became a more effective presenter. By living the gospel, not only was my faith enhanced, I also grew in my profession.

What is the role of the husband and the wife in the family?

Husband and wife in a marriage are meant to be equal, partners. The husband is the head of the household and is responsible for the temporal welfare of his family. His role is to support his wife. The wife is also to support her husband and to nurture her family both spiritually and emotionally. Husband and wife are meant to work side by side in providing a safe haven from the world for their family. Their roles are different, but equally important and essential to building the family and the community. Show more Show less
