Hi I'm Kati Anne

I love adventures! I love to play! I love being a missionary! I love being a Mormon!

About Me

I am a 21 year old that just loves life! I attended BYU university before I left on my mission to Mississippi! Serving a mission is the best decision I have ever made! I want to continue my schooling when I get home and become a physical therapist. I am forever grateful for the opportunities that I have had in my life that has come through the gospel of Jesus Christ. I come from a family of eight and I am the second youngest. I love my family and I love having the eternal perspective that we will always be together. I love playing sports and being outside! I just love to play!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because it makes me happy. I love being in this church. Living with the gospel in my life has made me such a better person. I am so much stronger than I ever would of been. I have been able to keep myself clean and worthy so that I can prepare myself to be a good wife and mother. My faith is who I am. I want to serve Christ with my whole heart. The church also brings such comfort. Whenever I am sad I know that I can turn to the Lord and he will give me peace. The church is like a family. Everybody supports each other and loves each other. I love the simple peace that I feel when I read the scriptures. I love the laughter that comes from living in a happy home. I love the way my family has a deeper connection because we know that we will live together for eternity. I am a mormon because I want to live with my future husband someday forever. I know it is true with my whole heart. I am a mormon because I know that this is the Lords true church. I am a mormon because I love Christ and want to serve him.

How I live my faith

I grew up being a mormon so I have always been very involved. When I was a little girl I remember being so excited to go to the church and all the activities. They always have such fun games and lessons for the children. As a teenager, the church was what kept me going through hard times. Most of my friends were mormon too and we would always be at the church for dances or just to hang out. It kept us out of a lot of trouble growing up. I have such fun memories about going to early morning seminary. It is a class held before school that teaches us about Christ and his gospel-It gave me the strength I needed to handle my day. When I graduated I decided that I wanted to go to BYU. This is a university run by the mormon church. Everyone there has the same standards and so there is no drinking, smoking or bad parties. I have had an amazing experience there. There is always such fun things to do and all of it is done without the aid of alcohol. Now as I am serving a mission and I am trying my hardest to serve my Lord. I know he is with me and he is guiding me everyday. I have my weaknesses but now I know that he is always there for me. He is lifting me up and guiding me everyday.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Kati Anne
I have had a lot of friends ask me if I worship Joseph Smith and the answer is that I do not. I worship Christ and my Heavenly father. I was in a play during high school that showed the life of Joseph smith so I have learned a lot about him and I have respect for everything that he has been through. I know that he was a prophet and that He saw God the Father and His son Jesus Christ. So yes, we admire him for what he gave up for the church but we do not worship him. I know that Christ lives and that He is my saviour. I give my life unto Jesus and not to Joseph Smith. Show more Show less
