Hi I'm Kathryn

I am an artist and writer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Right now I am writing a book about the life of the Joseph from Genesis in the Bilble. When I'm not writing or drawing, I'm reading a novel or on Facebook keeping up with my friends.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was a child, I was Mormon because my parents were. As I grew up and went to college I saw a lot of alternative lifestyles. Some of them could be quite appealing, but I noticed that none of those people seemed happy. After college, I served a mission and was able to see first hand the changes that occurred in peoples lives as they accepted and lived what I taught them.

How I live my faith

I am the chorister for the local branch of the Church's woman's organization known as Relief Society. I choose what hymns we sing at our weekly meetings and direct the music.

Why is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints called Mormons or Mormonism?

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is called the Mormon church because of the Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon is a collection of ancient American writings from various prophets written over a 1000 year span and abridged by a man named Mormon before the civilization fell apart somewhere around 400 AD. Members of the Church use the Book of Mormon for its simplicity, the way it clarifies many biblical teachings, and because it testifies of the divinity of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
