Hi I'm Katelyn

I grew up on a potato farm. I love the opera and the ocean. I want to make a difference in the world. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Katelyn. I am in college studying to be a speech therapist. I love being creative. I love to design, to experiment with color and to see the finished results of something I dreamed up. I love kids. They always make me happy. I think I am 8 on the inside. I love art and music and the ocean. I love to bake, to dance with my dad, to go thrift shopping- anything that involves people, creativity and play.

Why I am a Mormon

I was taught from a young age to love and follow the Savior. The reason I choose to be a Mormon... everything I have ever learned makes sense. It makes my heart sing. It shows me how to become more like our Savior Jesus Christ. It is by living the principles of the gospel such as faith, repentance, compassion, love- that I grow and truly become more like our Savior. I have a personal relationship with God. When I am in my darkest days I know He is listening and gives me comfort and guidance through the Holy Spirit. There is an answer to every question I've ever had. I know who I am as a daughter of God and that gives me the confidence to move forward and the compassion to help the others of God's children that are lost or maybe just need a hand.

How I live my faith

I live my faith each day by waking up and asking, "Who would you have me help today? Who would you have me find? Where should I go and what should I say?" I try to serve the way the Savior would serve. I try to see the one who He has sent me there to help. Currently I am serving as a missionary! It is the funnest thing I have ever done in my entire life. Do you see the missionaries where you are? They are probably the happiest people you will ever meet. At this phase in my life I have the opportunity to put all of my other concerns on hold and to truly look for those who are searching to know more about the Savior. I get to meet the most incredible people. I teach them truths from Heaven and invite them to know for themselves. I see every day that with the Lord on my side I can do anything He wants me to do. I am really, seriously happy.
