Hi I'm Katie

I'm a Mormon. And I love it. I try to see the positive everyday as I raise my 4 kids with my handsome husband.

About Me

I feel like I've lost a bit of my identity while raising a family, but I'm developing new skills everyday in ways only parenting can provide. I love dancing, most music, scrapbooking, reading and playing basketball. I like to create adventures for my family by traveling and playing in our hometown. I love what other people teach me and find it awesome to make connections with others.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised to be a Mormon because my family lived their faith. I'm still a Mormon because I questioned God and received answers to my prayers that this is His true church. I think that the better I live the gospel of Jesus Christ, the more I can become like Him and become a better friend and family member. Plus, this faith makes me soooo happy.

How I live my faith

I pray and read scriptures each day so that I can feel peace. I also receive ideas of what good I can do for others. Then I try to live my best day each day. I participate in the school's PTSA and organizations that my children are involved in like Girl Scouts and team sports. I try to make friends with other parents so that we can support each other in parenting and finding joy in life. I also see how I can help people in my community who need food or emotional support. My faith in God is the most important thing to me so if my friends or family are looking for happiness, I share with them what I've learned and experienced. It's not much, but I know consistently trying help a little each day is enough.

What is the Relief Society?

It's a group of women that meet together often to serve others, learn new things and strengthen each other. Because it's impossible to have all the Relief Society sisters from around the world meet often so we meet according to the direction from the priesthood leaders, which is in smaller groups, called wards and stakes. We serve people without homes, people that can't do things for themselves and in many other ways. We learn skills to improve relationships, to develop talents or fortify ourselves. We strengthen each other by knowing who each other is, how each woman is doing and looking for ways to support each woman's pursuit of a Christian life. Show more Show less
