Hi I'm Kate

I am a 21 year old girl. I like baking, blogging and babies. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a college student learning to survive the challenges of young adulthood. I love being outdoors and spending time with family and friends. I love being an aunt and look forward to the day when I will have a family of my own. Basketball is a passion of mine, and I love doing things that are fun and active. I enjoy baking and cooking and see both as ways to take a break from stresses of life. School is a challenge for me, but I am learning so many things that are helping to prepare me for my future life. I have my personal struggles, but I am learning to overcome them and am working hard to establish peace in my life. I love life and am working to be the happiest I can be.

Why I am a Mormon

The gospel has been my source of strength through my hardest trials in life. Knowing that I have a loving Heavenly Father and a Savior who love and care for my well being helps me to carry on through my struggles. The gospel offers me hope. I can't say that I have always known without a doubt that the church is true. I had to discover this for myself, and it took some time for me to have my own personal testimony of the gospel. Through studying, prayer and spiritual experiences in my life I have come to understand the importance of the gospel and how blessed I am to have it in my life. I have learned of my Savior and by leaning upon Him in my hardest times I have grown closer to Him. There have been times when I have felt that the Savior was the only person who could understand me and help me. I love Him for his atoning sacrifice and His willingness to lay down His life for me.

How I live my faith

My calling in the church is compassionate service assistant. In this calling I am able to serve the women in the church. I have the opportunity to find ways to include them at church and to make them feel important and wanted. I am asked to write them notes of appreciation for their service and thank them for their willingness to accept their callings and to perform them well. When someone is sick we take her soup or other necessities to let her know that we care about her. We recognize women on their birthdays and let others know when birthdays are so that they can celebrate with the women in the ward. It is such a blessing to be in a calling that allows me to get to know girls and help them feel loved and appreciated in relief society.
