Hi I'm Katrina Schaelling

I've lived around the world.

About Me

I'm a college student, I'm a craft store employee, and I'm preparing to serve as a missionary in Uruguay. I've lived all over the world and I thoroughly enjoy a good thunderstorm.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because it is the only way to live, if you ask me! I was raised in this Gospel and through being taught its truths my entire life, I've realized that this is the way to find true happiness--through following our Heavenly Father's commandments so that we may return to live with Him and our families again. I know that I have a Father in Heaven who truly and deeply loves me, more than I can even comprehend. Through this love he sent His son, Jesus Christ, to come down to earth and atone for our sins. Because of this Atonement, I know that I can live with my Father in Heaven again someday, if I live as He would have me live. This Gospel is one of hope and happiness, and I cannot express how grateful I am each day to be able to be a part of it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by taking each day and trying to live it as Christ would. This includes focusing outward rather than inward and trying to observe what others need in their lives and doing what I can to fill that need. When we live each day as Christ would, we can find so much more fulfillment than if we lived solely for selfish reasons.
