Hi I'm Katrina

I am a sister, friend, daughter, wife, mother. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a family of 10 children. Needless to say, family is very important to me. For seven years I worked as an elementary school teacher and a school librarian. I am currently involved full-time in the profession I always wanted: motherhood. In the moments my children allow me to have on my own, I enjoy reading, sewing, baking, and couponing.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a Mormon family, but that is not the only reason why I am a Mormon. I was lucky enough to be raised by parents who are fully committed to living a Christ centered life. Because of their influence and example, I had spiritual experiences during my childhood and teenage years that set a firm foundation for my testimony. When I have had low moments and felt like I was disappointing my Heavenly Father, I have thought that maybe it would just be easier to leave the Church. But upon deeper reflection, I have realized that being a Mormon is not just about belonging to a certain religion; for me, it is my life. Being a Mormon is the lifestyle I have chosen and every aspect of my life is centered around it.

How I live my faith

I attend my weekly Sunday meetings regularly and actively participate in my calling to teach 4 year olds. While it sounds simple, praying daily to my Heavenly Father and reading scriptures regularly helps me focus on what is most important and to plan my life accordingly. Having two young children has made me realize that how I live my faith impacts not just me, but my family as well. By trying to be a good example to them, it helps me focus on what is most important.
