Hi I'm Kathryn Freeman

I'm a representative of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I love to serve others. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, but I am referred to as a volunteer because I was called to serve in the Russia Novosibirsk mission. I decided to serve a mission because I believe in this Gospel wholeheartedly and I want to share my happiness with others so that they, too, can find happiness and true joy in their lives.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a Mormon. I am not forced to go to church, mutual, or firesides. I'm not dragged into watching General Conference on two Saturdays and Sundays of the year. I choose to sit and listen to my prophet, my leaders, and my parents. I choose to read the Book of Mormon and pray every night. I love being a Mormon because I get to learn more about my faith everyday. My leaders are so sure that this church is the true church of Jesus Christ and I know too because of the wonderful warm feeling that I get of the Holy Ghost reassuring me that it is right.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by living like an ordinary person. I go to school, I work, and hang out with friends. I follow the ten commandments and answer any questions that I can for my friends and family. I set standards based on my faith of modesty, language, and actions.

What is done with the tithing that Mormons pay?

Kathryn Freeman
That ten percent is put into church funds to build temples, churches, and other buildings. This can also provide a missionary the opportunity to go on their mission if they can't afford it. Heavenly Father promised us that if we pay an honest tithe that we will be blessed. Me, personally, I have been blessed by paying my tithing after a babysitting job and receiving another opportunity as soon as the next day. I have also seen the blessings, not only show in my life, but in the lives of those around me. When I decide to obey the law of tithing, I see that it blesses my family. It makes me happy to know that I am assisting in building this church and helping it grow. Show more Show less
