Hi I'm Kate

I'm a wife to an incredable man, a mother of 4 beautiful children, a preschool teacher to 10 adorable girls and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in St. Louis, MO as the youngest of 9 kids. I moved to Arizona at 19 and meet my husband just a couple of months later. We were married in 2000 at the Mt. Timpanogos Temple and now have four gorgeous, healthy children. I started teaching preschool from my home for my oldest son and seven years later I am still teaching and LOVE IT! I also love my book club group and game night group, but my favorite thing to do is relax at the end of the night with my hubby and a good treat.

Why I am a Mormon

As a youth, although I was raised in the church, I was never very committed to living what I was taught. I went through a lot of growth when I moved away on my own. I quickly learned to recognize the blessings of keeping the commandments and my testimony started to grow. Like everyone else, I have challenges that allow me to make choices, good or bad. Sometimes I choose the right and other times I don't. It is never very hard to see how a bad choice gets me nowhere. I never feel good and problems are never solved. These lessons in my life have come from the teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. When I follow the council that I've been given I find peace and happiness in my life even through challenging times. I am so grateful for having that guidance in my life.

How I live my faith

I have found that my most of my time is centered on young children. I have four of my own, teach ten little four year old girls for a preschool class and also teach ten adorable seven year olds for Sunday school. I am often exhausted at the end of a day. But because of my knowledge of these choice spirits, I can recognize how blessed I am for being a part of their growth. I know how important it is to raise good, strong, faithful kids that will someday be great leaders in their community, schools and church.
