Hi I'm Katie Mullins

I love date night, party planning, and babies. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in California in what I consider an ideal situation. My family were my friends and my friends were like family. While in college studying Commercial Recreation, I met a cute boy and after a long and very sweet story, I married him. We are now living in a charming city on the east coast while my husband works on his PhD. We just welcomed our first baby. I love being her mom. My days consist of mostly motherly duties and I love it. In my free time I am working on making our student apartment a home, and feeding my family healthy, palatable meals on a budget. I live for date nights, dessert, and traveling. I look forward to experiencing all those things often during my life (maybe every once in a while, all at the same time).

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church and for as long as my memory will allow me to recall, I knew I was child of God. As I grew older I came to understand more and more what that meant. I learned that my Heavenly Father gave his Only Begotten Son so that I could return and live with him again. I learned that His Son is Jesus Christ, and that I can have a very personal relationship with Him. I learned that if I lived the way He did, I could always have His spirit to be with me. I know now that I need that spirit with me. I know now that life comes with many challenges and trials and I choose to have the help of my Savior to face these times. I choose to seek His guidance and do His will. I learned that because I am a child of God there is so much more than just this life. I learned that what I do here matters and that all I learn and the relationships I make can be mine forever. Throughout my life I have gained a testimony of different principles and steadily built a strong foundation in my faith. I know that Jesus is the Christ and that He has a church on the earth that He leads today. He does so to bring mankind closer to Him and ultimately show them the way to return to Him. I know from reading the Book of Mormon and praying about its teachings that it is a true book. Like the Bible, it testifies of Christ. I am a Mormon because living the principles the church teaches makes me happy.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following the example of my Savior and being an active member of His church. I love that I was taught from a very young age to serve my neighbors as Jesus did. I have found that serving others has made me a more substantial person. Because of my service to others, my capacity to love has increased. I feel my Savior's love stronger and understand more fully the love He has for all of us. Other ways I follow my Savior are by being kind, loving others, and treating everyone with respect. I enjoy learning of Him by studying my scriptures daily. I say my prayers in His name and feel the love and guidance of my Father in Heaven. I take an active role at church working with the children. Teaching children about Jesus is such a sweet experience. They are so willing to show their love for others and do good things.
