Hi I'm Katie

I'm an adventurer. I'm a lover of all things art. I'm currently a servant of the Lord. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Katie. I was a student studying interior design. I am a lover of all things art which includes literature, poetry, fineart, music, dance, and movies. I especially love the last one. I would love to use my interior design degree to do something in movies, like set design. Besides all that I thoroughly enjoy being outdoors reading, hiking, camping, rock climbing, or snowboarding. I can somewhat play the piano. I wish I were better but I hated it when I was a kid and quit. That's life. I'm in love with Les Miserables, it's beyond words. My most favorite moments in life are family get-togethers with my extended family, it's like a little piece of heaven. Most recently in my life I have decided to put all of this aside for 18 months and serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am currently serving in Anaheim, California and am finding true joy in sharing with these beautiful Californians the happiness I have felt as I've come closer to Jesus Christ through faith, repentance, baptism, recieving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe in Jesus Christ. He is my Savior. I have learned this and come to know this truth through studying both the Bible and the Book of Mormon. Together they are two witnesses that He is the Son of God. I read the Book of Mormon, then I asked God if it was true. I received and answer through the power of the Holy Spirit that it was. Because I knew this I also knew that He came and did atone for me. That knowledge changes everything. As I study the bible and learn about the church Jesus Christ established while He was on the earth, I learn that it is this same church that I am now a part of. It is built on the same organization of apostles, prophets, and Jesus Christ himself as the chief cornerstone. It was prophesied many times of a time when His church and authority to administer the church would be lost but that it would be brought back or restored. I know that it has been! I know that this authority was restored to the earth and is guiding this church today through a living prophet! His gospel teaches me to be happy. Obedience to the laws of God and the teachings of Jesus Christ have led me to true joy and happiness. I believe that the principles and doctrines taught in this, the Mormon church, teach a person how to be a good, and loving disciple of Jesus Christ. I'm a member of this church because of the teaching of the eternal nature of family. Families can and will be together forever!

How I live my faith

I am a missionary in the Anaheim California Mission. It has been the hardest, best, most wonderful, experience of my life. I have grown so much. Every trial has been a part of this growth. Helping people come closer to their Savior has brought me such joy I can't even describe. I love my Father in heaven and He loves me. I live my faith by serving Him with everything that I've got. He deserves nothing less. As missionaries we have dedicated this time to bringing His children nearer to Him. I pray and hope that I can be an effective tool in the hands of the Lord.

Are Mormons Christians?

I am a Mormon and I am a Christian. I believe in Jesus Christ with all my heart and He is my Savior. The knowledge of His Atonement has literally changed my life. Through it I can be forgiven and made clean again when I mess up. I can feel His love as I pray in His name for the power of His sacrifice to enter my life. I strive to follow Him everyday.
