Hi I'm Katherine

I have been married for 18 years. I am a mom of four children. Reading, quilting and hiking are some of my hobbies. I am a mormon.

About Me

I'm a stay-at-home mom with four great kids ages 17, 15, 12 and 8. Their lives are busy, so mine is too! I love to quilt and spend a great deal of time with that hobby. I'm learning to garden...through trial and error! I also love to read. Some of my favorites are Fablehaven, Harry Potter and anything by Shannon Hale. Hiking in Colorado is great. I was able to hike Mount Quandry recently.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church and it's just always made sense to me. I am happy when I'm obedient to the commandments and teachings of the gospel. When I have not been obedient, there is no happiness. That is a testimony to me that what our church teaches is true and designed for our benefit. I am grateful for the principle of eternal families and that our relationships don't have to end with death. I feel that I am a better person for trying to live this way than I would be if I didn't have the gospel. It is a great university for life!

How I live my faith

I try to be a good example in all I do. Each day is a challenge to be the best I can be and do the best I can do. I also work with the 12 and 13 year old girls in our ward. It is fun to teach them on Sunday because, at this age, they are excited and ready to learn. They also know a lot, so they teach me as well. We hold activities during each week to give them opportunities to learn new skills and associate with others their age. They have a chance to learn a little leadership in the process. Each month, I visit 3-4 women in our ward along with another lady. We are able to assess needs, teach a lesson and get to know women we might not normally associate with. I have gained some cherished friendships through these visits.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

I love Joseph Smith for all he did in his short life. He provided a great service to us by being an instrument in the restoration of the gospel. He sacrificed a lot to lead the early church. But, I worship my Heavenly Father and Savior, Jesus Christ. They provided us this earth and our lives and everything we have. Our Savior gave His life that we might live again and be forgiven of our mistakes. I depend on them to make it through this life. Show more Show less
