Hi I'm KateLyn

I'm a college student. I love to dance. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am originally from Montana, but moved to Utah the summer before my fifth grade year. I have loved living in Utah and being surrounded by those of my same faith. I have attended Brigham Young University in Provo, UT. I am majoring in Elementary Education and love working with children. I also love dancing and music. I feel that through the dancing I am able to express my feelings and enables me to share my talents with others through creating movement. I have been blessed with a wonderful family and four older brothers who keep an eye out for me! I love life and feel so blessed!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know it, I believe it, and I love it!!!!! This is the true and restored gospel on the earth today. Wow! That is a pretty high claim, but what is so wonderful is that you do not have to take my word to believe it. You can ask and receive an answer for yourself!!!! I have been blessed to be raised in the church and have a supportive family, but I know that this church is true because I have asked for myself. There was a time in my life where I questioned what I had always been told and I had to ask the source of all truth and light, God! He showed me through feelings of comfort and peace from the Holy Ghost that this is right! I can tell you without a doubt in my mind or heart that this is God's church! I know that God is our loving Heavenly Father! He is truly our Father and desires us to return to Him. He answers us when we pray to Him! I obey the commandments and do my best to live righteously because I want to live with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ once again. I know why I am here, where I am going, and my purpose in life because I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving and supporting those around me. I have served in many callings in the church, which have included helping with the youth programs and most recently in the organization for women 18 and up. I love to serve because of the joy that others feel when they are given something without being asked for anything in return. I live my faith through how I act. I decided to take a year and a half from my schooling and from my family to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Pennsylvania Pittsburgh area. I loved having time dedicated to solely thinking about how to bring others to Christ. It has been one of the hardest, but most fulfilling things I have ever done! I know that through the gospel we find the most happiness and its the same with sharing it with others. If we love someone, we will desire their salvation and must live our faith by sharing it!
