Hi I'm Katie

I am a wife to a hard working husband. A Mom to 2 beautiful children. I love to to eat. I love to sew. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was raised in California. My parents divorced in between my freshman and sophomore year of High School. Both of my parents chose to get married with-in the next year. I lived with my grandparents for a while, and then moved in with my mom and step-dad. I got married to a loyal man. I finished college and started teaching at an elementary school. I am now a stay at home mom with 2 young kiddos. My sweet husband works his life away to support our life experiences. I love my kids and family so much! I wish I could live closer to my my brothers and sisters. I love to try new recipes. I like to wear loud, yet subtle tights. I like to sew, but my true obsession is to hand stitch. Together as a family we like to watch movies and eat ice cream.

Why I am a Mormon

Even though I have had a broken family, I have had wonderful additions to my pieced togther family. I love my family so much (immediate and extended) and can't seem to live without them. I am so grateful for the knowledge of eternal families and that my family can be together forever- even after this life. I have felt God's love and his spirit testify to me at different times in my life that He lives. That there is a purpose to this life. That through Him I can experience peace and joy no matter what trial is placed in front of me. Knowing that has encouraged me to keep His commandments and trust in Him. And from keeping His commandments I know that it has made me a happy individual.

How I live my faith

I try to be like my Savior, Jesus Christ. I try and teach my children to trust in Him. We say our prayers in my house. We read the scriptures every night. We talk of Christ. We have Faith. We fast regularly. We pay tithes and offerings. We speak kind words. We hug each other. We go to church weekly. My husband and I encourage our children to know scripture stories. We spend at least one evening together a week together talking about spiritual and temporal matters. In my house we try and serve others; members of our own family, church friends and our neighbors. We visit the elderly. We shovel snow off of people's driveways. We bake treats for others. We try to have the light of Christ be shown in our countenances, because we love Him.
