Hi I'm Katie

I grew up in Minnesota. I am a chocolate lover, a book lover, and a mother of five (the first two being a result of the third!)

About Me

I come from a family of eight kids. I went to cosmetology school about ten years ago where i gave a very handsome man a haircut, and he later became my husband. Since then, my life has been filled with action and adventures. We have five very beautiful and lively kids, and we bought our first house three years ago. Thank goodness for yards! When i have a spare moment to myself, i like to dive into a good book or bake a yummy treat.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are both members of the Mormon church, so i was born knowing what it meant to live in a happy family with Christ at the center. I have continued living the teachings of my childhood because it has brought me much joy and happiness all throughout my life. When challenges and trials have come up, I've been able to access those special tools and knowledge that i have been given being a member of Christ's true church. They have helped me overcome. I believe that love is the healer of all and Jesus Christ taught us to love one another, including ourselves. I believe that Christ gave up his life because he loves me and all of the world. I love my family so very much, and in Heavenly Father's plan, i can be with my family forever.

How I live my faith

In my church, there's just a small group of kids ages 2-11. I help teach them things like songs, important gospel principles, and how to be reverent in church. Its great fun! Kids have such creative and imaginative minds and they are so eager to learn. I love working with them! I also visit a few friends every month or so that can't make it to church because of health, age or personal reason's. It really teaches my children the joy of service.
