Hi I'm Katie
And I am proud to be a Mormon.
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.
