Hi I'm Katelyn

I am a pre-physical therapy student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Currently I am a college student, working to get my Bachelor's Degree in Exercise Science and then I'm going to Physical Therapy school. I am fascinated by the human body and I'm so excited to learn more about it! Some of my hobbies include singing, dancing, hiking, swimming, baking, and reading. I love to have fun and be loud and crazy with my friends.

Why I am a Mormon

Since I grew up in the church, I don't have one particular life-changing experience that has made me want to be a member. Instead, it's the little things that have added up that have strengthened my testimony in the Gospel. There have been countless times when I've been going through a trial and I've prayed or read something in the Book of Mormon and I've gotten this overwhelming feeling of peace and comfort, making me feel as though Christ was right there next to me with his arm around me. All of the teachings of the Gospel have always just made sense to me. I love that God has a perfect plan for each and that families are central to it. I also love that we are responsible for all of our actions but if we mess up, we have the Atonement so we are able to repent and ultimately live with our Father in Heaven again.

How I live my faith

I participate in my Young Single Adult ward by attending weekly meetings on Sunday. I also go to family home evenings and other various activities throughout the week. I love going because of the friendships I have there. I always feel so comfortable to share my thoughts and feelings and to be myself. I have also recently been called to serve a mission in the Ecuador Guayaquil South Mission. I leave for the Peru MTC on March 12th and I could not be more excited to share the joys and the blessings of the Gospel with the people of Ecuador! I have always wanted to serve a mission but I never knew how it could work into my plans for school so when President Monson announces the mission age change, I had an overwhelming feeling that the change was for me and that I needed to go. I am so grateful for this incredible opportunity to serve as an instrument in the Lord's hands to bring others unto Christ.
