Hi I'm Katheryne
I testify of the love and power of Jesus Christ, having suceeded in life,love,health,politics,even desert survial; I am a Mormon.
I was placed in a good home, abounding with disfunction and mental problems. I went searching for identity and found wonderful mentors. I went on a 30 day survial course and found joy in being a girl and gave up my tomboy ways. I graduated from BYU in Family Studies not understanding how much defending that would later come to preserve good family life. I served a mission for the church in Belgium and Holland and found the power of Faith, Hope and Charity. I worked for 15 years being involved with politics and the professional world of business. I found love late in life, true and lasting love having two wonderful sons. My faith is now equiped to fight against anything that tares against the family, I have conquered insecurities, doubts, debts, health and despair and try to instill in others the will to fight for the happiness that life brings, if we but ask. I never give in to misery, I have learned to pick myself up and move on. There is nothing that cannot be solved with the action of faith in Christ and positive thought. Having the lenses of truth restored through our gospel I cannot despair, I stand on solid ground, that rock of salvation. We are all individuals with intelligence and a mind with choice for good or evil. I have choosen good and it made all the difference and brings much happiness. I acknowledge a loving Heavenly Father and the Lord Jesus Christ who gives us every good thing. Repentance is the key to happiness, because it's available, and it works!
Why I am a Mormon
I am a mormon or what I call a Latter Day Saint, because it is knowledge of absolute truth. Witnessed to me by the power of the Holy Ghost, a feeling like knowing that I love my mother, or husband or children, no matter what. And I have asked for that witness in sincere prayer, and I have received a real answer that I cannot deny. That truth is a solid anchor to my soul when met with choices. I have comfort with all situations of trails, death, sickness, lack of means, anything because these principles give me that confidence. The laws are expressed in the word of God, the principles are explained by all five books, with only the bible scriptures you can't get the whole truth, due to the fact that it was edited quite a bit and important information was left out, but I DO LOVE THE BIBLE. We have a prophet of God living here on the earth with 12 apostles. I've asked for a confirmation on these men and it was given to me beyond any doubt. Religion today is emotional entertainment with no confidence when the rubber hits the road. And if there is a church that gets bad publicity it is the Mormon church. Why?, because we live in an imperfect world, and if you are going to scam people you don't want absolute truth being popular. If I choose to live by the laws and principles that the Holy Scriptures contain, in all five books that we have AND CAN PROVE THAT ARE TRUE, then I have a witness of joy everytime, that they work. When I have a death in my family, I know exactly where they are going and what they are doing,I have no doubt. These laws and principles work and they are the basis for happiness. Good principles and values are not fashionable nowdays, misery is fashionable, but not for me. I feel free from improper, misleading, dishonest conduct, politics, movies, language, values, policies, human behavior and excuses that are mean spirited. and I REALLY mean Free!
How I live my faith
I love my faith, I have worked hard for it. Faith is increased by trials, and my trials have been exactly what I have needed to overcome the weaknesses that I have in relationships, habits, talents, pride, money, health, I could go on. First I have learned that I truely am a child of a loving Heavenly Father. He knows my name and he knows how I will respond to different situations. This life is a test and he constructed a wonderful test designed for me to reach my true potential. I feel he is pleased with my decisions, and because I feel his approval I have an abundance of joy. I have made wrong decisions and He has waited with patience until I wanted change. Then the way was provided for that change through his love. I also know that there is opposition to happiness. Satan is real, his desire is to make me as miserable as he is becomes my need for a Savior. He has tried to sway me into that unhappy road,and I have tasted it for a bit to realize how bitter it is. I didn't want to stay on that path, early on I knew I was worth more in God's eyes. I found out what I needed to do to repent, overcome, change, become confident, and all through His Grace. I ask for very specific assistance, his help for me. My humility has come line upon line as I have transfered my pride for true happiness and reliance upon His Grace. I am still overcoming my weaknesses past, present and future until I have endured to the end. I will call upon my Lord, Redeemer, Savior, Jesus Christ , with confidence and energy for the help I need to be happy. Happiness is knowing for certain that the path you are on is the right path, for he is consistant and constant and unchanging. He will provide for anything that I ask him for, that is GOOD! He respects my freedom to choose. He provides the knowledge that I need for confidence in the next life, a resurrected life, a life full of energy, no death, and power to continue on into eternity. I love my Savior, I know him and I trust in him.
