Hi I'm Katrina

I sing in the shower and dance in the kitchen. I love life, laughing and relaxing with my husband and baby. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I believe that every day is a good day for laughter, fun and learning. I grew up in Brisbane, Australia and am one of seven children. My four sisters and two brothers and I spent lots of time at the beach, playing 'schools' in the backyard, swimming in the pool, and having mini discos in the living room. It was at home that I developed a great love for music, playing piano and various other instruments, and singing. I love to sing more than anything else! I aspired to travel and spent a year in Denver, Colorado working and meeting people. This was a great experience! I have since returned to America a number of times, visited New Zealand, Fiji, Canada and have plans for many other countries. I studied at university in International Business and later received a Teaching degree as well. I am married to a wonderful man and we welcomed our first baby at the start of this year. We love spending time as a family especially camping, fishing and exploring this beautiful country as much as we can.

Why I am a Mormon

I love that as a member of the church, I have the chance to be with my family forever. I am grateful to know that when I make mistakes (and I make a lot!) that I can make course corrections and get back on track. I love that there are so many opportunities for me to serve others and to be a better person. I am still so far from perfect that I appreciate every chance to grow in some way. I have been able to develop my talents in many ways, but a favourite has been the many times I've been able to sing, conduct choirs, and teach music to others. I have loved meeting other members of the church as I've travelled. I made some wonderful, lifelong friends during my time in America and met some sweet special people in Fiji. Having the church as a base means that I always have a 'family' and people to care about me. It doesn't matter where you live, what language you speak, or who you are. I know that the strength, positivity and happiness I feel every day comes in large from the knowledge that I have a loving Heavenly Father who wants what is best for me. Being a mormon has made my life better in every single way.

How I live my faith

Being a mormon isn't just something I do on Sunday. It's a way of life. I try to do what's right every day and to become a better person. At church, I have a wonderful role. I am a leader working with the children from ages 3-12 at church. This allows me to use my skills as a teacher in a different and special way. When talking to children, you can really see the sweetness that comes as they learn about Jesus. In teaching them about him, they also learn to be kind to each other and learn life skills that make them better people. We learn songs together, learn from the bible and Book of Mormon, and play games. It is so wonderful seeing their smiling faces as they play and learn together. I really enjoy serving with the children! One of the things I've enjoyed the most has been conducting choirs and teaching others to sing and develop musical talents. I really feel the spirit through music and am grateful for the chance to serve in this way.
