Hi I'm katie mckinnon

born and raised in california. byu-idaho. i just want to travel and explore the world. and i'm a mormon.

About Me

i was born and raised in sunny southern california and attend at brigham young university-idaho where i will be studying elementary education. i am the youngest of two and love spending time with my family. i love traveling when i have the opportunity and dream of traveling around the world. i love this life that i have been given and i can't picture myself living anywhere else but in a world this beautiful.

Why I am a Mormon

i am a mormon because i have felt the Spirit confirm to me that this church is true. being a member of the church has brought so many blessings into my life. i am mormon because this church answers so many questions (ex: where did i come from? where will i go when i die? will i be able to be with my family forever?). i came from a loving Heavenly Father who sent me here to earth so i can become like Him. He loved us so much that He sent His son, Jesus Christ, to teach and sacrifice His life for us so we can be forgiven for our sins and return to live with Him. His sacrifice can bring us the greatest joy.

How I live my faith

i was privileged to have been born in the church and to be raised by a wonderful and supportive family. every sunday i go to church for 3 hours and there i learn about Christ's teachings and to feel the spirit. i also have the privilege of attending brigham young university - idaho, where i'm able to be surrounded by people with the same standards as me as well as professors who tie the gospel into the lessons. the many testimonies at this school has strengthened mine. my family regularly has family home evenings and scripture study which brings the spirit into our home.
