Hi I'm Katie

I am 17 and just graduated high school. I love playing tennis and softball, and just having fun with my friends, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have always had a love for sports, and I play both tennis and softball competitively, but my friends and I play just about any sport just for fun. I am going to college to major in Journalism, and hopefully one day you can all watch me argue with Skip Bayless and Stephen Smith about the sports world. Besides sports I love to hang out with my brother, he is my one of my best friends and we do just about everything together.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a recent convert, and I can not be happier with my decision to join the church. When I was making this choice I took a leap of faith, and I was greeted with many blessings of happiness. I think the biggest thing for me was that the people that I met were just normal people like you and me. They were not weird or overly preachy, but they knew where they came from, what they needed to do, and where they were going. I find comfort and peace in this, and being around people with the same moral values as me make it so much easier to stay away from things that could potentially hurt me. Don't get me wrong I have had my trials like everyone else, but everything just seems easier with the gospel in my life, and it is hard to explain, but I am just genuinely happy.

How I live my faith

I try to follow the Word of Wisdom to the T, because I can already tell the affects it has had on my family and friends. I have never had problems with drugs or alcohol so following the Word of Wisdom came easy, but once my family and friends realized that I had such a strong stance against the things listed I noticed that they also started to stop partaking of those things around me, and I even notice my brother(who is of legal drinking age) has cut back on his alcohol consumption. Even though I am far from perfect I try to be a strong example of faith to those around me.
