Hi I'm Kathryn

I'm grew up in Portland Oregon.I survived a stroke at 19. I'm currently serving a mission in California and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

There isn't much to tell, I'm average and I like it. I love hanging out with my four younger sisters. I like playing video games and think that action movies are the best! I enjoy, well really love reading Sherlock Holms. I recently spent a semester abroad in London England, it was a blast and helped me get closer to graduating from the university. I love studying art, especially sculpture, and history. I want to be a school principal, after a lot more school. I am a missionary at the moment and will go back to college to study humanities and buisness.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the Church of Jesus Christ is the best way I have found to live my life. If it were not for the guidence that I have found through the teachings in the Book of Mormon and those of living prophets I would be an entirely different person. More importantly if it weren't for the preisthood power that this church has I would not be alive. Litterally this power of God has saved my life. At 19 yrs old doctors discovered two massive blood clots in my brain. It was in this time of distress and fear in my life that I turned to God and the plan he has for us. It is a miracle that I am able to live the normal and fast paced life I have today and I know that it was a result of the priesthood. There is healing, physical and emotional, in the teachings of the son Jesus Christ and power of God the father. I have seen this healing take place not only in my life but also in the life of others. For me there is no other way, I have been too blessed to turn back form the joy that I have here!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being the odd one out. I choose not to drink. I choose not to swear. I choose to spend time reading my scriptures and studying. I choose not to wear the latest trends. I chose to give up a year and a half of my life to serve a mission. I am so blessed to go from house to house and tell people about how they can have help making there own life choices. My life is made of my choices and I see blessings from choosing to follow the standards of this church everyday.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

When you invite them in the missionaries are going to talk about Jesus Christ and how his teachings will help YOU in your life. They will show you how to know that God is once again speaking to the world through a prophet. You will improve and bless your life through obedience to God's commandments which we recieve through these prophets. It is all based on you and your needs, wants, and understanding. The missionaries are just there to help guide you. If you are lucky they wont just talk. They also love to cook and clean, do home repare, any type of service, and most of them can sing. The songs are the best! Show more Show less
