Hi I'm Kettie

I love to be outside - hiking, biking, running. I love music and my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a rural Utah town with five sisters and two brothers. It was a great place to be a kid! I went on to study music and engineering and now work as an irrigation engineer. I moved to Colorado for work and since I love to be outside, this is a great place to be. I love to bike, hike, and run outdoors. I also enjoy playing the piano and trombone, reading, and time with friends and family.

Why I am a Mormon

We live in a world that can be very discouraging. Evil abounds and sometimes it seems like the bad guys win a lot more than the good guys do. Because of my membership in the church, I understand the plan of salvation and that God has a plan for all of us. He loves all his children and didn't make a plan that would only cover 90% or even 99% of them. He is a finisher and he has a perfect plan for all of us. His son, Jesus Christ, came to earth to fulfill the requirements of that plan. They both love us and want us to be successful in life and return to live with them again. Because of that knowledge, I can move forward with faith in God's plan and hope in the future instead of letting bad things discourage me. I would love for everyone to understand their relationship with God and feel his love for them. It brings me peace, hope, and joy.

How I live my faith

Becoming a member of Christ's church means becoming a disciple of Christ. Although I am definitely not a perfect disciple, I do try to remember that is what I am committed to becoming. Whatever situation I am in, I try to remember that and act accordingly. It means treating myself and others with respect, kindness, and love. It means being welcoming and encouraging or maybe being the peace maker in tense situations. It's a challenge but I think I'm getting better! I also have the opportunity to work with the youth in our area in the seminary program. This involves high school students meeting at a church building to study the scriptures at 6:00 am every morning before school. It's not easy for the teachers or the students but it yields great benefits and I love hearing the insights that the youth have to offer.
