Hi I'm Katie

From New Mexico I love hiking, laughing, traveling. Studying to be a teacher! I am serving a mission in France and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of three. I have two younger brothers. My family is very important to me. I love going to new places, meeting new people and making friends. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ and want to share the joy that I have in my life because of that knowledge.

Why I am a Mormon

I have chosen to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because everything about it brings me joy and makes me happier. I am always learning new principles and I am always growing. There is never a point where you stop growing in this gospel. It is the growth that I have seen in myself since I became converted that has led me to continue to follow the teachings of the gospel. I have also witnessed certain blessings in my life through keeping the commandments which we have been given. My family isn't perfect, but I have seen how trying to live the gospel of Jesus Christ has blessed us and helped us to grow closer to eachother and to grow closer to Jesus Christ and to Heavenly Father. I know the gospel of Jesus Christ is true and that The Book of Mormon and the Bible are a testament of Him and that He lived, He died for us and suffered for our sins and that He has risen and lives today. I know the power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ and how it can heal our hearts and make us whole again. I know that through the power of the priesthood and the sealing power and because of the wonderful temples, our families can be together for eternity and that we will see our loved ones again. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet and that he translated the Book of Mormon through the power of God. I also know we have a living prophet today, President Thomas S Monson. I feel so much gratitude and love for Him and all the rest of the General authorities and what they do for us. I can testify of the power of prayer and that anyone can pray at anytime and Heavenly Father will answer them in the time that is right. He is always there and He loves each of His children infinitly.

How I live my faith

I try my best to always act like Christ would in everything I do and say. I study my scriptures and pray each day. I try to always Choose the Right based on what our Savior Jesus Christ has taught us.
