Hi I'm Katie

I joined the church when I was 19. I am now a mom of 4 and love being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

About Me

I am currently a mother of 4 young children, which is exhausting and rewarding at the same time! Families are so important. My husband is my best friend! I enjoy learning. Currently I love learning about nutrition and personal growth and feel the importance of sharing knowledge with others. I love reading- I have a hard time putting down a good book! I enjoy being around others. I also like to be outdoors and being active, especially with family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

The first time I read The Book of Mormon, I didn't thoroughly understand what it was about, but I would feel so happy after reading. I loved the spirit of the homes of the LDS families I knew. I wanted to find out more. I started attending church and learning from the missionaries. I could feel the Spirit at church and during my discussions. I met such wonderful caring people. When I prayed about the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon and joining the church I knew it was right. I have been a member for over 10 years now. I love being able to learn of Jesus Christ and his teachings as I read the Bible and the Book of Mormon. I love being spiritually fed at Church. The temple is house of God and such an amazing peaceful place to visit, learn, and make covenants with our Heavenly Father. I am so grateful I was able to go the temple and be sealed to my husband for eternity and that children are also sealed to us forever. Following the gospel of Jesus Christ sets me free. I know I am a child of God and Jesus Christ is my Savior!

How I live my faith

The main way I live my faith is by raising and teaching my children in the gospel. In a family we learn, teach, and strive to be like Christ. We learn about sacrifice, unconditional love, service, and charity each day. I go to church each week to partake of the sacrament and and be spiritual strengthened. I continue my learning and do my best so I can grow and so I can help others come unto Christ.
