Hi I'm Katelin

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to run with friends and to get to know new people and I love to sing random Disney songs at the top of my lungs dispite my lack of singing ability. I love reading books and hiking and camping and doing pretty much anything that would have me out of doors. This is one of the major reasons I decided to study Geology. I have a hard time making decisions but I usually love the ones I make. I don't like chocolate and I'm not a big fan of drinking water but I do love all sorts of candy and eating food, especially baked goods.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. I'm not even a second or third generation memeber. My family has been Mormons eversince Joseph Smith restored the gospel. But I do know that this is the true church. I know that there is a God out there that created the earth. I know that He is my Father. I know that He is always aware of my situation and that He wants to help me. There are many times in my life that I have seen the hand of God either protecting my life or simply giving me comfort. I know that Jesus Christ is the begotton Son of God. I know that Christ suffered tremendous pain in the Garden of Gethsemane for my sins and my sorrows. I know that because I have felt the power of the Atonement. I have felt the comfort that is given from the only One that knows exactly how I'm feeling. I know that Joseph Smith restored the gospel to its fullness. I know that through the power of God, Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon. When I read the Book of Mormon, for real and not just looking at it, I can feel the spirit of this wonderful book and I know the teachings contained within are from God. I know that the Plan of Salvation is real. I know that if I keep the commandments I can one day live with my family forever. What a joy it is to know this because I love my family and I can't imagine where I would be without them. I know that prayer is real and that it works. I know that you can pray at anytime of the day about anything and Heavenly Father will always hear me. He even helped me run faster druing a race once because I prayed. I know that Heavenly Father loves all of His children and He will do anything to help us return to Him. I say these things in the holy name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

The best way to show what you believe is by the way you act. I know for sure that I am in no way, shape, or form perfect at this, however, I try to have my actions show my belief in Jesus Christ. I try to pray sincerely every day and really talk to my Heavenly Father. I strive to keep living my faith by doing the little things everyday that will help me remember who I am and what relationship I have with my Father in Heaven. If you have questions about the Church, the best way to find out the answers is by asking someone who is a member and who knows what they are talking about.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Katelin
Mormon missionaries proselyte because we love the gospel and we realize the effect it has on not only our lives but the effect it can have on the lives of others. We proselyte because we know that this church is true. We proselyte because we know that God is our Father in Heaven and Jesus Christ is our Savior and that we can live eternally with our families and we want everyone to be able to feel the same happiness and have the same blessings that we have. We want to help better people's lives by helping them come closer to Christ. Show more Show less
