Hi I'm Kate Bawden

I am a dental assistant, a runner, a wife, a twin, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 24 years old, been married for 6 happy years to my wonderful husband. We do not have kids...yet. I currently work two jobs: I am a full-time dental assistant, and work part time at a running store. I love to run! I just got back into it ( I ran in high school on the cross country team). My husband and I ran our first 1/2 marathon ( 13.1 mile race) in October. I just ran my first full marathon (26.2 mile race) yesterday! I love to sew and bake. I experiment on my husband with my baking.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Latter-Day-Saint because this is where I believe I should be. I am a convert to the church and during my conversion prayed to know that I was choosing the correct path. I am here today to say I am a Mormon because I do believe! I Believe in Jesus Christ, I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter- Day- Saints is the only true church on the earth today. I know that Jesus loves me, just like he love everyone of you! I know that He has sent me to live my life the way that I am and put me where I am for a reason. I know that he has a plan for all of us, that if we live by we will return to live with Him again in heaven. I know that He has a plan for each of us, special and sometimes simple things that we are brought here to do on this earth. I know that as we ask in prayer for things we feel are needed we WILL receive them! I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ , Amen.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through service and example. I am a convert and as many people, including my family, don't know much about my religion I try to be an example to them so they can learn. I show them our beliefs by standing for what I believe in.
