Hi I'm Katie

I grew up in Arizona, I can't live without my music and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I always grew up not knowing my real family, I was adopted when I was born and I always had that "what if" question in my life. As i grew up I realized I was one lucky girl because I was a girl with 2 families!!! The one thing that kept me motivated through this stage was my music. I am a piano player, and I LOVE to sing. One day I hope to see myself on that stage performing all over the world. Music Major is my goal :D

Why I am a Mormon

When I was 9 years old I remember opening the door to a few Elders. I asked my Mum why they were here and she explained to me that these were missionaries who were going to teach me about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Being young my mind was open to these two men and I was willing to listen. I look back and realized how important that one decision of me willing to take that first step of independence by saying "Yes, I would love to be baptized." Would impact my whole life forever! Accepting the Gospel in my life was such a blessing and i know this church is true with all my heart! I know when i go through trials Heavenly Father is always there to hold my hand saying "Everything is Okay" I know Joseph Smith is a true prophet and i know he was called to restore the Gospel and he did in fact see the Father and Son. In my heart I know Heavenly Father blessed me with having two families and I wouldn't be here now bearing my testimony. The family i live with now, helped me to live the standards of the church and lead me through this life knowing the Gospel is the one true way to happiness and peace. I learned as I grew up that this church is true the Holy Ghost does speak to you once you live worthily and i know when people put the church down it's a test of faith to stand strong and be of good courage.

How I live my faith

Recently being accepted in Relief Society, I was called as a teacher over the 8 year olds. What a blessing it was. Just coming out of Young women i got to go to a class with little kids and this taught me how precious Heavenly Father's children are. It was scary at first i must admit accepting this calling because i never taught anyone before. But through Heavenly Father's help I was willing and ready to teach these children in hopes to build up the Kingdom of God. As i sit down and prepare the lessons each week I reflect back on my own life and ask "Am I living this?" This has helped me come closer to my Father in Heaven and Jesus Christ because I know if i kneel and ask for guidance they will be there for me.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Katie
This book called The Book of Mormon is in fact another witness of Jesus Christ. This book contains the writings and teachings of the ancient prophets and shows the miracles of Heavenly Father. This book is named after one of the last ancient prophets 'Mormon' This book holds great promises and if you truly believe in this book it will bless your life. "And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost."
