Hi I'm Katie

I am a wife to my wonderful husband, a mother to two sweet little boys, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

There are many things I love to do. I ran cross-country and track in high school and college. Running helps me to push myself to new levels and to know that I can accomplish great things. I also love singing, playing the piano, and listening to music. In my spare time, I can be found with my nose in a good book. I have my teaching credential and taught elementary school until I became pregnant with my second child. Right now, I am loving being a stay at home, but I also look forward to going back to teaching when my kids start school.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up with the gospel in my life, but I also have my own personal testimony. When I was twelve years old I decided that I needed to find out for myself if the Book of Mormon was true. I put aside time every day to read and ponder the Book of Mormon. As I was finishing reading, the Spirit filled my heart with warmth and I knew that the words were true. Since that time, there have been many other instances where the Holy Ghost has born witness to me that the Gospel is true. I know that I am a daughter of my Heavenly Father. I know that He knows who I am and loves me. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and that he came to Earth and suffered for my sins so that I could return to live with Him someday. I know that families can be eternal. Living the gospel has brought me happiness and joy.

How I live my faith

I sometimes help with the music in my ward by playing the organ in sacrament meeting or playing the piano for the children. I also help with the women's organization by visiting the sisters in the ward and helping them with their needs. I also have the opportunity to pay a monthly fast offering to help those who are in need of financial help.
