Hi I'm Kate

I was born in Arizona. I love books, tacos, sunsets, and my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a full-time college student, part-time student worker, den leader of a Cub Scout Wolf den, and proud aunt. I have recently entered the wonderful stage of adulthood and try to view everyday as an opportunity to learn and grow. I enjoy buying and reading books and spending my free time with my family playing games or just sitting around and talking. Even though I am a busy young adult, I try to slow down to "smell the roses" both literally and physically. Although I can't say that I have saved a life or discovered a cure for a disease, I can say that I am a normal girl that has normal challenges and successes. I am a lover of flowers, sunrises and sunsets, strawberries, and laughing.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family and so I grew up a Mormon. Though it was something that was normal and expected for me to believe, I still hit a point in my life where I needed to find out for myself whether it was true. When I graduated high school and entered college, I struggled with the transition. It is easy to lose yourself during big changes like that, to feel like you don't know who you are or where you're going. I know that I would not be where I am today if it were not for my faith and testimony. I know that because of the things that my parents taught me while I was growing up, things about who I was and what my purpose on Earth was, I was able to make it through that tough transitioning time. I learned for myself, through studying the scriptures and praying, that I have a Father in Heaven who loves me and who has a plan for me, a plan of happiness. It was that knowledge that helped me then and continues to help me now.

How I live my faith

Something that my parents instilled in me while growing up was to always look for and act on opportunities to serve. I currently serve as Wolf Den Leader and a member of the student council at the LDS Institute that I attend. Although my service is primarily done within the church, I try to teach my 8-year-old cub scouts to serve in the community as well. I hope to instill in them, and in my own children someday, the importance of genuine care and concern for others in the community because I believe that that is the sign of a truly good person.
