Hi I'm Katelyn

I am a Senior in high school, I work with the elderly, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a dedicated highschooler who is determined to make it to college. Each day I work in an elderly care home. I spend most of my time working, but with every opportunity I can get, I have fun. This includes spending time with my family, friends, and basically anybody who has a lust for life. I love laughing. I would almost say that it is one of my hobbies thats how much I love doing it.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in this church and I have truley learned to love it and believe in it. Growing up, going to church was just an everyday part of life and these concepts seem to come naturally. But as I grew older I began to yearn for a testimony of the gospel and the truthfullness for it. So I began to pray earnestly and search the scriptures. Through this process I learned of the love of Christ, my savior, has for me and for everyone of us. I learned that this is Christ church and the only way to make it back to my Heavenly Father is through him and this church and everything it stands for and is. I KNOW that being a Mormon and living my life with the pure joy of Christ will help me make it.

How I live my faith

At my church I participate in the youth with girls. I help lead the girls and plan fun activities with them. Frequently I am asked to participate in teaching a lesson to these wonderful girls. Often times these lessons are about our standards and what we stand for. It is through these standards that we find joy. I most often live my faith through each day. Because of what the LDS church has taught me about Christ, each day I strive to be more like him and to share his message with all I come in contact with.

Why is it important for us to take care of our bodies? Why are our bodies called temples of God in the Bible?

God gave us our bodies as a gift. It is our job to keep them clean so our spirits can feel the Holy Ghost when it speaks to us. When we put drugs and alchol in our bodies we are destroying the Holy Ghost's ability to communicate with us. We say that our body is a temple because it is the house of our spirit.
