Hi I'm Katie

I love exercising, laughing and sunshine. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Akron, Ohio and attended BYU-Idaho for a couple years studying English. I am currently serving a mission in the Washington Spokane Mission which has been a super fun adventure. I love trying new things: New interests, new places and especially new flavors of ice cream (which is sort of a problem...). I love being with people - friends and family or people that I get to meet everywhere!

Why I am a Mormon

First off, because the gospel is what makes me happy! Knowing that I can be with my family forever is knowledge that has brought me so much security and has strengthened my family relationships. I love knowing that we have a living prophet that guides us. The council and commandments that he gives have brought me so many blessings and understanding. I love being a Mormon because the gospel gives me a reason and understanding of why I should live a good life, what I am doing here, who I am and what I should do to gain the most happiness. It gives me access to the tools I need to find answers to my questions.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to do the basics every day - studying my scriptures, serving others and praying. I go to church every week to partake of the sacrament and be in a place and with people where the Spirit resides. I try to be obedient to all of God's commandments and in doing so have been richly blessed with peace in my life and a deeper sense of the Savior's love for me and all people. I'm not perfect and so I repent every day. To me being able to repent is the greatest gift because it is the only way that I can become relieved from the burden of sin and become a better person. The gospel of Jesus Christ is the best thing in my life! It has helped me overcome challenges, become a better person and helped me see what matters most in life. I love the gospel and the Savior, Jesus Christ.
