Hi I'm Katelyn

I am going to college to become a nurse. I love to cook, play sports, laugh, and spend time with my family.

About Me

I love to work and play hard, especially with my family. I absolutely love going to family reunions or even going out to grandma and grandpa’s house to play with all of my cousins. There is always a party at my grandparent’s whether we are playing games, helping to build their barn, or floating the river. I work as a CNA at a nursing home and I love it so much! I am going to college to become a nurse, but am currently putting it on hold for 18 months to serve as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Denver Colorado Mission. I am so honored to serve the Lord as a missionary.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in the church my whole life, but the reason I am Mormon is because I have read The Book of Mormon and prayed about it, and I know that this is the true church. I have seen miracles and so many tender mercies in my life that I simply could not deny the truth of what I have felt. I know our Lord lives and loves us. He is a great and merciful God and I will do everything I can to serve Him.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by always doing my best to follow in my Savior's footsteps. He is the perfect example. I do this by fulfilling the callings that I am given in church and attending all of my meetings, including the ones during the week, even if sometimes they are hard to get to. I am also living my faith by going on a a mission. I know that that this church is true. I have been so blessed and just want to share that happiness and share the knowledge I have been so blessed to have with others.

What is being a Mormon like?

I love being a Mormon. I live my life a lot like other people. I am going to college. I love to play all sports and to go running. I like to listen to all types of music, especially coutnry. I love to laugh and play with my friends and family. What gives me the most joy in my life is my family and the gospel. I do my best to choose the right and follow the example of our Savior. I am not perfect, but when I do make mistakes, which is very often, I know that I can repent and be forgiven. I know there is a huge difference between the times when I am always trying to do better and the times when I am not. I am 100% happier when I am doing what Heavenly Father would want me to be doing.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

We do not worship Joseph Smith, but we do respect and acknowledge him as a prophet of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I know that he was directed by our Father in Heaven to restore the gospel to its fullest and translated the Book of Mormon under that same direction and authority. We worship Jesus Christ our Savior and our Father in Heaven. The Prophet and Apostles are the Lord's servants who have been called in the day and age to guide and lead the church today.
