Hi I'm Katie

I'm a Scottish girl, in the States. I love colour, play the odd instrument, dance... but not the professional way. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the youngest of 5 girls. I graduated with a BMus-hons degree in musical performance, Summer 2011. I have an 11 year old Harry Potter Geek inside of me who emerges every now and then. I'm now a missionary in the land of Mormons, Utah!! I love being a missionary and know that the decision to serve full-time has been the best decision that I have ever made in my life!

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a good family. I have gone to the LDS church all my life and have always really loved it; the Primary Program, the Youth Program, the YSA program... all of them were great fun throughout my life and they also taught me about the importance of God and Jesus Christ. Following the teachings of the Church has made me happy and when I'm there on a Sunday I know that I'm in the right place. The biggest impact that the Church has made to my life, was my experience of learning 'why?'. Through a number of events I really came to know Jesus Christ and why He is so important. I continuously receive the blessings of His Atonement in my life. Spiritual experiences and answers we receive are so special, and as we open up and share them, they can be a blessing for others and invite them to have those experiences themselves. Then, as we continue to live our lives building upon those experiences we strengthen our faith and our testimony. Jesus Christ is the center of the Plan of Salvation... the plan of happiness for our lives. To be truly happy, we need to know how His life plays a role in ours. I came to know this and that's when I was truly converted.

How I live my faith

I thought that I had put my life on pause for 18 months to serve as a full-time missionary but the experience has made me realise that the Gospel of Jesus Christ IS my life. Just now I am living my life more than I ever have before. Sharing the restored Gospel isn't merely a pause, but has enhanced who I am and my purpose so much. I live my faith by doing my best to follow the example of my Savior Jesus Christ. I have fun, I love all those that are close to me and who make me smile. I try and show people that there is more out there than what the world offers...our Father in Heaven offers us so much more, he offers us everything that is good. I have learned that being an example is great, but something even better is getting out there and doing something about sharing the restored Gospel. Following Jesus Christ and his full teachings makes me happy and I've got to help other people experience that too.
