Hi I'm Katie

I was raised in Utah. I want to become a Teacher in the future. I am planning for a mission. I'm a grateful Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently thinking of going on a mission and hoping to go on a mission where I learn a new language and a totally different culture. I love learning new things no matter what subject it is. I love my family a lot, a whole bunch! They're really all I can talk about because I love them so much. I want to become an English Teacher or someone that helps them with their speech. I enjoy teaching people too when I can and hope that what I'm talking about will carry on in their lives even though I am inadequate for the task. I am currently doing Personal Progress even though I'm twenty, it's a lot of hard work and very satisfying when I accomplish a value. It also teaches me more about myself at a spiritual level and make me think of little things and how wondrous this world is when you place God in your life at such a level. I enjoy reading, writing, sewing, painting (Oil and Watercolor), and also singing when I'm alone or in church where my voice is masked. Well somewhat but it's still enjoyable. I also hope to become a writer so that I can show everyone the most magical world that is in my mind and hope they enjoy it as much as I am.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church but I will admit that I went inactive for a very long time and went down a path that made my parents scared in my teenage years from middle school to about the end of high school I was inactive. What made me come back to the church was a group of people that I eventually sat down with at lunch time who kept on talking about seminary and how much fun they were having and what teachers were cool and what teachers were just alright. They all seemed so happy that I came to realize how miserable and lost I was without the spirit to guide me. Also what helped me even more was a Young Woman's leader, Sister Ericksen. She took the time to call me and ask how I was doing and that really touched me and made me think about my decisions so far and so I started going back slowly but surely. Sometimes it just takes a persistent call of concern and interest and it makes all the difference. I feel stronger everyday when I apply God's teachings and commandments into my daily life. I am grateful for all those that smile at me at church now and ask how I'm doing, it makes all the difference in the world and I love each and every one of them.

How I live my faith

I had a calling in the nursery and I loved it so much because you learn a lot as well when you teach those little children. I just got back into that calling so I'm very excited about that. I enjoyed watching as they learned to interact with other children and how they loved to talk and learn about Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I also learned from them as well and felt a pure joy and satisfaction that I was teaching Heavenly Father's little ones.
