Hi I'm Katelyn

I grew up in Utah. I'm a ballroom dancer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I currently attend Brigham Young University. I love to learn and I love meeting new people. I also love to dance. I took ballet lessons while I was growing up and then in High School I started to ballroom dance. I love to express myself through dance and uplift others through wholesome entertainment. Singing and playing the piano are some of my interests as well. I am the youngest of three children. My family is so important to me and I love to be with them.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because it makes me happy. Being a Mormon also makes me a better person. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints teaches me how to treat others and myself. The Church teaches me morals and values that make me into the happy, helpful, and kind person I want to be. I'm a Mormon because I think that being a part of this church is the best way to learn about God. I believe in Jesus Christ and I want to dedicate my life to serving Him. This Church is centered on Jesus Christ so I know that by being a part of it I will learn truth about Him and what He wants me to do with my life. I'm a Mormon because obeying God's commandments brings me joy and success in life. It makes me a better friend, daughter, sister, and neighbor. I'm a Mormon because I know that by following the teachings of this Church I will be able to be with God and my family after I die. I'm a Mormon because I love being one.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing my best to help others and be kind. When I see that someone needs help I offer encouraging words and do what I can to help. I try to be a good listener when others tell me about their problems and ask for advice. I also live my faith by putting my best effort into learning all I can because I know that God wants me to improve myself and get an education so that I can support myself. I live my faith by studying the scriptures and learning about God's plan for me. I live my faith by improving my talents so that I can share them with others. I also try to strengthen my family and show them that I love them.

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

There are so many blessings that come from reading the scriptures. One of them is that it allows you to feel the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost will testify to you that what you are reading is good and true. The Holy Ghost will give you peace and comfort when you read the scriptures and you will also be able to feel God's love for you. Reading the scriptures makes me happy because I learn about God's plan and about Jesus Christ. The scriptures teach us how we should live and what our blessings will be if we follow God's commandments. The scriptures also provide answers to our questions and prayers. We can read about people who, like us, faced challenges and temptations and overcame them. I love the scriptures because I know that they are true. They teach me about Jesus Christ and why His Atonement is so important for all of us. Show more Show less
