Hi I'm Katherine

I'm a runner, I'm a wannabe yo-yoer and most importantly, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in the midwest. I went to college and studied microbiology... I'm a convert to the Church of about 5 years and it is the best decision I have ever made. I mostly like watching movies, eating food consistent with what most 12 year olds eat and going exploring with friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because it's true! It's all true! I grew up Catholic, but not very strongly. When I was almost 16 some circumstances in my life caused me to reflect on whether there was actually a God or not. All my friends had a belief in God, why didn't I have one? My best friend invited me to go to a church camp with her and I accepted. At some point during the week I decided to read from the Book of Mormon, I mean... why not? While reading it I just felt the greatest sense of peace. Later in the week my best friend got up and shared her knowledge about how much The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints meant to her, how she knew it was God's Church on the earth and how much happiness it brought her... she just wished that I could have that happiness for myself. The Holy Ghost flooded my body and from that moment on I knew not only that there was a God, but that His Church was restored to the earth. Everyday this truth is confirmed to me again by the Holy Ghost. It's true, it's all true.

How I live my faith

 I live my faith by trying to do as Christ would do. He is the ultimate example, He is our Lord and Savior. I live my faith by actually living it, not just claiming it. 

What is the Book of Mormon?

Katherine
The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. We know that God loves all of His children equally, and every person on this earth is a child of God. If you had children in both Asia and America, would you only speak to one of them and not the other? God has children all over the world and He doesn't forget any of them. The Book of Mormon is a record of God's dealings with His children on the ancient american continent. It was written by prophets and is the word of God, as is the Bible.  Show more Show less

Are Mormons Christians?

Katherine
Mormons are definitely, definitely Christians. Jesus Christ is at the head of this Church. He is our Lord and Savior and "there shall be no other name given nor any other way nor means whereby salvation can come unto the children of men, only in and through the name of Christ, the Lord Omnipotent."
