Hi I'm Katey

I grew up in a small town in rural Arizona. I love sports and want to open my own business. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I recently graduated with a bachelors degree in Business Management Marketing. I currently work as a purchaser and customer relations representative. I love all kinds of sports, but my favorite is Ultimate Frisbee. My husband and I have been married for just over a year and half and our expecting our first child. My life seems crazy busy but it is filled with things I love--family, friends, sports, and the gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it helps me everyday. It started when I read the Book of Mormon completely through and tried out the promise at the end. I knew then and there that the Book of Mormon was true. Once I knew of the Book of Mormon's truth, I tried to walk with faith everyday continuing to build my testimony of the gospel. My testimony is strengthened everyday because as a member of this church I never have to do it alone. Not long ago, I challenged myself to learn more about my Savior. To do that I memorized the church's document, 'The Living Christ.' Through that document I learned who the Savior was and he became someone I trusted and loved. It hasn't always been easy to be a member. I had friends that made fun of me for my beliefs and sometimes I can't play all the sports I would like because it doesn't keep the Sabbath day holy, but I am a Mormon because even when it is hard I am never alone. I know my Savior loves me. I know because he cares about the little things, like keeping me well so that I can work, and giving me friends so that I don't miss family as much. He cares about me and I love him. This gospel is everything to me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith mostly in simple ways. I choose to dress modestly when it is really hard to find modest clothes. I chose not to play sports on Sunday. I also start everyday with personal prayer and scripture study. However, one of my favorite things about the church is that it allows me to be involved. Currently, I get to work with the eight year old boy scouts. We have a blast playing together, and working together. I also get to help the girls in my ward ages 12-18 play volleyball. The church has so many ways to get involved and I love it because I love talking to people, helping out, and playing. Living the gospel is something that is in everything I do. I live it by what I wear, things I choose to watch, and how I spend my time. It helps me make the best decisions for life. With the help of the gospel and the Lord, my life has become better than I have ever imagined. The Lord blesses those who follow him. Living everyday is the biggest way I live my Faith. The gospel isn't something I just live when it is convenient it is part of my life everyday, and every minute. It helps me be who I am.
