Hi I'm Katie

I enjoy baking, cooking, reading, having fun and being happy! And I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love life! My first year of college took place at Utah State University where I majored in life (Undeclared major). I am now preparing to serve a full-time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Baton Rouge Louisiana Mission! I have recently begun to teach myself how to play the Ukulele and how to bake and cook. I also enjoy being with my wonderful family and learning new things and being happy!

Why I am a Mormon

I have come to know that I am a beloved daughter of Heavenly Father who loves me. I know that He loves all of His children, and that we are put on this earth with a plan that we can return to Him again. Through His son, Jesus Christ, we are able to repent of our sins and return to virtue over and over again. I am a member of the church because I know that the Lord has a plan and I have a work to do for Him.

How I live my faith

I was baptized a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints when I was thirteen years old. My parents have been inactive in the church since they were young, but through loving friends and leaders I have been brought to the truth. I have served in the youth program's like Young Women's and Seminary Council. I have found strength in daily study of the scriptures and prayer. I plan to serve a full-time mission for the church in Baton Rouge Louisiana very soon! My personal relationship with God is my first priority. Because of this choice, everything seems to work out, and I have found true happiness.

What do Mormons believe concerning the doctrine of grace?

Christ asks us to show faith in Him, repent, make and keep covenants, receive the Holy Ghost, and endure to the end. By complying, we are not paying the demands of justice—not even the smallest part. Instead, we are showing appreciation for what Jesus Christ did by using it to live a life like His. Justice requires immediate perfection or a punishment when we fall short. Because Jesus took that punishment, He can offer us the chance for ultimate perfection...Christ is not waiting at the finish line once we have done “all we can do” (2 Nephi 25:23). He is with us every step of the way. Grace is not a booster engine that kicks in once our fuel supply is exhausted. Rather, it is our constant energy source. It is not the light at the end of the tunnel but the light that moves us through the tunnel. Grace is not achieved somewhere down the road. It is received right here and right now. It is not a finishing touch; it is the Finisher’s touch (see Hebrews 12:2). - Brad Wilcox Grace is Christ's enabling power to save us, to get us through the storm when our strength is not enough to do so.
