Hi I'm Katrina

I'm going to school to become an Elemenary Teacher, I've travelled the world with my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently attending college and studying to become an elementary teacher! I love kids and I love to teach! I have travelled the world with my family, I love visiting other countries and learning about other cultures. When I'm around home I love to read, cook and bake. I love to play volleyball and to hike and enjoy the outdoors. Nothing means more to me than being able to spend time with those I love whether that is family, friends, or both!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a member of this church, but I still had to discover for myself that The Church of Jesus Christ was true and that it was something that I wanted to be a part of my life. When I was about twelve there was a boy at my school who was a member of the church, but did not go to church. Seeing him made me wonder why he didn't go to church, It made me wonder if the church was true, and made me want to know for myself. As I read my scriptures and prayed to my Heavenly Father to know whether or not this church was true, I received an overwhelming feeling of peace. The answer that I received was not a voice speaking to me or a huge event, it was a feeling of peace that I received as I was in my room alone, kneeling and asking my Heavenly Father to help me to know the truth. The feeling that I received that night was enough to help me to move forward. As I have moved forward striving to follow the commandments given in the scriptures and striving to follow the counsel of our latter day prophet, that feeling of peace has continued and I have had many more experiences that have confirmed to me that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true. I am so grateful to have the gospel in my life, living the gospel brings joy to my life, it gives me purpose and direction. Amidst a changing world, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is something that remains constant, and will always remain constant.

How I live my faith

To me, living my faith means living with integrity, it means doing the things that I know are right and never compromising the standards that I have. Living my faith means that I strive each day, week, month, and year to make myself a better person. Living m faith means reaching outside of myself to serve those around me and to help lift them up as Christ did when He was on earth. In the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints, members are given responsibilities and jobs to do. Living my faith means that I accept and follow through with any responsibilities that I am given. Through doing this I learn and grow as an individual but I am also able to bless the lives of others. Each member is assigned as a Visiting Teacher women or Home Teacher men. You are assigned to two or three individuals to watch out for, you go to their home once a month and teach them a lesson, and you talk with them and see how they are doing. You become their friends and let them know that if they ever need anything they can come to you. Living my faith means fulfilling my responsibility as a visiting teacher to help look after others.
