Hi I'm Katie

I'm studying to be a teacher. I love to spend time with my family and my friends. I love to shop. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a student in college studying elementary education. I have grown up babysitting kids all the time with my mom and that is where my love for teaching and helping kids grow. I love to play the piano. I love to spend time with my family and my friends. They are so important to me. I love to go shopping. It helps my mind to be clear and I'm able to talk with my friends about those things that are most important. I love going to throwing get togethers with all of my friends around the bon fire. My family and my friends are so important to me and they have helped me become who I am toay.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and have been a member all of my life. I was baptized when I was eight years old and even though I don't remember it, I know that it was an important time in my life. I grew up relying on my parent's testimonies about the gospel, and I've seen the blessings in their lives. I went through a period of time when I didn't really know if the church is true. I knew that I needed to find out for myself. I talked to many of my friends about the gospel and my bishop as well. They all testified about our Savior, Jesus Christ, and His love for us. I knew that the only way that I would know is to pray and askmy father in Heaven. Through this experience, I knew that the church is true, and that it is Christ's true church on the earth today.

How I live my faith

In my student ward I was in charge of a thing called "Munch and Mingle" where every month after church we would all get together and have a meal. It was so fun. I got to meet so many great people, and my testimony grew as well. It was so fun planning and preparing the meals, and tyring new recipes to see what the people liked. It was quite the experience. My friend and I would always try making something before we actually made it for the dinner to see if it was good. We would test it out on my brother a lot too! If he ate it, then we knew other people would too! I love playing the piano during church. My favorite time is to play for one of my friends that sings really well. He would pick the song and then I would play the piano and then we would perform it in church. It was a really great experience. In church, my mom is over the children's program. I loved going in to help with the lessons and making sure the kids are well behaved and reverent as well. It is always fun to see the kids sing and learn about God. Their little testimonies grow right before our eyes! My favorite place to be is in the classes with all the kids. I learn so much from them.
