Hi I'm Katie

I have been called to serve a mission in the Scotland/Ireland mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 19 and am currently serving in the Scotland/Ireland mission. I grew up the youngest of 5, my oldest sister being 16 years older than me and now have 3 neices and 3 nephews. My youngest nephew was brn only 2 weeks before I left! I studied Holistic Therapy (massage therapy) in college and worked as a personal assistant, which I found I really enjoyed. I have lived on a narrow boat with my parents for 6 years now and it's been quite the experience! I'm a Young Single Adult and I love my friends there and we can be crazy and mess around and nobody really judges you but joins in instead.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this gospel and when I was 15 and 16 I was talking to some friends outside of the church that questioned why I was a Mormon, it made me stop and wonder why I was, my parent's encoraged me to figure out for myself how I felt and what I belived. I went to find out for myself if this church was true if Jesus Christ and Heavely Father where there for me by praying and studying the scriptures, I felt quite discouraged because of a busy life and I didn't feel I was getting my answer's. On a couple of weeks later I was traveling to my sister's who lives a good 8 hours away to spend the weekend and I had the time alone to quietly think and I felt an overwelming sence of peace, I knew that it was my answer and I felt the love of my Heavely Father, I know he loves me and I love him. I stay in his Gospel because I know it is true in my heart and I love all it offers me, the friends it has presented me with and the moral standards that keep me healthy and happy!! I belive that this church is true, I know that I am a daughter of my loving Heavely Father and he knows me personaly and want's what is best for me, he guides me to be the best I can be and watches over me. Being a member has protected me and brought an amazing knowlege of self worth.

How I live my faith

At the moment I am serving a mission and bringing the gosple of Jesus Christ to all who will listen to me, I'm so glad for the chance I have to serve others and I know that through obedience I can be blessed. I also like to invole myself with service projests and helping out when I can.
