Hi I'm Katy

I'm a Mormon - and I love it!

About Me

I'm a full time student at BYU. I'm studying Recreation Management. My hobbies are pretty normal. I love to be outdoors..sports (even though I'm not very good at them), camping, or just a nice sit outside. Who doesn't like a good sit? I like to read, bake, eat, and travel. I enjoy spending time with my closest friends and family. I have 3 brothers and they are my best friends and great examples to me. My parents were sealed in the Oakland California temple and I am forever grateful that my family can be eternal. I served as a full-time missionary in the Chile Santiago East mission - where I left a piece of my heart. I find so much joy in living and sharing the gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

The gospel of Jesus Christ means everything to me. It gives meaning to my life. I know there is a reason I am here and a reason to hold myself to a higher standard. I love the Book of Mormon and know it's true, it has helped me through countless trials and I can feel of its power every time I search its pages. I know Joseph Smith was called of God and is the prophet of the Restoration, and that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true! Our Heavenly Father loves us so much and shows us His love in so many ways. I know that Jesus Christ is our Savior, that He lives, and that He died for each and every one of us and that thanks to His sacrifice we can repent and be cleansed from our sins and return to the presence of our Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. I am a Mormon and will always be a Mormon because I know these things are true, because it is a better life, and because it's the only way to return to God. And I love it!

How I live my faith

I help the women in my ward visit other women and help each other out! I take advantage of every opportunity to volunteer and get involved in my community. I have found that the greatest way to live my faith is to be a genuinely kind person and reach out to those around me. Everybody has their trials, and we all need lifting! Even a smile can make all the difference in someone's day. Being a true disciple of Christ requires a constant effort to love one another in the best way we know how.

Are Mormons Christians?

Yes! Everything we do in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints points us to Christ. We strive to follow His perfect example in all we do. We testify of Jesus Christ as our Savior. We know that it is only through Christ and His atoning sacrifice that we can return to live with Him and our Heavenly Father. This is Christ's church restored to the earth through the prophet Joseph Smith. Christ stands at the head of this church and leads and guides it today through living prophets and apostles.
