Hi I'm Katie

I am a wife and mother of 4. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a busy mother of 4 busy children. There is never a dull moment in our home and plenty of personality to pass around. When I get a few minutes to myself, I love to use that time creating. I like to sew, quilt, bake and read. I love astronomy and am learning to play the guitar.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the right church. I have read the Book of Mormon and prayed to know of its truth. The Holy Spirit has whispered to my mind and heart that it is true and filled my soul with warmth and peace. Likewise, I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. He had questions just like we do and his faithful prayer was answered by seeing the Father and the Son. I am so grateful that the Lord restored His church to the earth, the same church that He established during His own lifetime. It’s true. I know it. And since I know, I strive to be obedient to the truths that He has given me.

How I live my faith

The world around us can be such a scary and crazy place. As a mother I see dangers to my children lurking everywhere. Not only physical dangers but spiritual dangers too. There are many things to protect my children from but no matter how much I want to, I know I can’t hover over them, shielding them for their whole lives. I have to teach them what is right and what is wrong so that they can know and judge for themselves. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints teaches all things true and good and that they come from God. It gives me a solid foundation, built upon our Savior, Jesus Christ, to build my life on. When my life is anchored on Him, I can withstand any temptation, any danger and can teach my children to do the same. As I make the effort to read the scriptures and pray to my loving Heavenly Father, I am spiritually strengthened. When I am strong, then I can serve and lift those around me so that we can all draw closer to God together.
