Hi I'm Katie

I'm a reader. I'm a mom. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a stay-at-home mom to my 1-year-old daughter. Before she joined our family, I taught fifth grade after graduating from college with a degree in elementary education. In my spare time, I like to read children and young adult fiction and do genealogy.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to parents who were actively involved in the Mormon religion, so from my childhood, I have been a Mormon. Now that I have a family of my own, I continue in the faith because I know this is Jesus Christ's church. I find perspective and peace from the knowledge this gospel gives me about the purpose of my life. I find happiness from living the way the church teaches me to live.

How I live my faith

I read the scriptures (Bible and/or Book of Mormon) every day to become closer to God and to better understand His will for my life. I pray every day to express gratitude for my blessings and to ask for the guidance or help I need in my life. I try to follow Jesus Christ's example in how I treat others.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Yes! It makes so much sense to me that God would still call prophets in modern days. God still wants to communicate with His people; He has not left us alone. We have a living prophet today--Thomas S. Monson--who speaks to us and tells us God's will and how we can find happiness in our lives. Show more Show less

Can husband and wife be together forever? Do you believe that families will live together in heaven?

Families can be together forever. I know that I will be with my husband and family after this life, and that truth is a great comfort to me. I love my family and don't want our time together to end once we die. I know that there is life after death and that God has made it possible for us to live with our families again. He loves us and wants us to be happy, and this truth is evidence of that to me. Show more Show less
