Hi I'm Kathy

I grew up in Utah, attend and play lacrosse for UVU, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I play lacrosse with my University and am majoring in psychology. I love playing sports, playing the guitar, and listening to music. I am a Harry Potter nerd and love hanging out with friends. Summer is my favorite season because of the warmth and the vacations that come with it!

Why I am a Mormon

I am was born in the church but quickly realized that I needed my own testimony and could not simply base my faith on what my parents say. In high school I began to have trials with family and friends, it was not easy. It was at this time that I realized that I felt very alone, I didn't feel like I had anyone to turn to. As I continued to attend Seminary I decided to focus more on learning about Christ's life and his teachings. I learned to love Him and see my part in the plan. As I grew closer to Him I no longer felt alone--I had a friend. I am a Mormon because I believe in the teachings and practices of the church. I love the idea that I can have a family forever, that death will never keep us apart. I love reaching out and helping others, not just physically and emotionally ,but spiritually as well.

How I live my faith

I attend my home ward and have been called in the past to teach both Sunday School for the youth and have been in the Young Women's presidency. I loved my callings to work with the youth more than any other calling.

What is being a Mormon like?

Being a Mormon requires a desire for change, a desire to be happier, healthier, and more virtuous individual. The purpose of the gospel is not to change who you are, but to bring to light and happiness to your life. Life causes us to doubt and to wonder... The church provides us with answers to these questions and help us find our place in life. Show more Show less
