Hi I'm Katie

My dream is to write children's books. I am obsessed with peanut butter and goat cheese. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Ever since I was a little girl I have loved to read and write stories. Now I am in college studying English and editing with the hope of becoming a children's book author. Besides reading and writing, I love to run. I also enjoy playing tennis. Or, should I say attempting to play? for I am quite bad at it. :) I am the only human child in my family. I have a handsome brother named Duncan, who is a cat, and a sister named Shadow. She is a beautiful black lab mix. They are more spoiled than I am! I love being with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints my whole life. This gospel has always meant everything to me. I have always known with all my heart of its truthfulness. I know that this is because of my parents and their teachings and examples. It never ceases to amaze me just how much the Lord loves and cares for each one of us. I know that I can go to Him about any trivial concern I have, and He will care because I care. He will comfort and bless me. Every day I see all the little things that manifest of His love. Jesus Christ truly understands us on a very deep personal level because He suffered for each person one by one. The Book of Mormon truly testifies of Him. Because of the power that comes from reading the Book of Mormon, I have felt strength, and my life has seemed easier. Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God inspired as he translated this great work. Today, Thomas S. Monson is our prophet. I know that if we follow him, everything will be ok.

How I live my faith

In my life, the Lord has blessed me with so many amazing people that have uplifted and strenghtened me. Through their examples, I have become a better person. I hope that I can be a strength to someone else as I serve and love. I truly have felt the joy that only comes through forgetting yourself and serving and loving others. As I have been striving to not judge others but remember that they are beautiful and divine children of God, I have been able to truly love others and see their strengths. This has brought such happiness to my life. This wonderful gospel of Jesus Christ has brought such joy to me, and I hope that I can help bring this joy to others as I share my testimony.
