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