Hi I'm Katie

I'm from a small town in Wyoming. I love to teach. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a young single adult who loves all sports from college to national level. My favorite sport would be softball but basketball would be a close second. I grew up in a small town my entire life and enjoy the friendships and community that is built through small town communities. I am very artistic and musically talented but if I had to choose, one of my biggest strengths would be my love for mathematics. I am a junior in college and every minute of learning is a blessing to me. I enjoy education and aspire to be a teacher.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this is the only true gospel and only way to true happiness. I am a Mormon because I feel complete everyday I am a part of a loving community that supports me and strengthens my testimony. I originally was a Mormon because that's what my parents were but as I have grown, I am a Mormon because I know that Christ established this church and it is true.

How I live my faith

I have several callings in the church but never high leadership callings. My callings have been to council and to help those around me. I was recently released from a calling called "Ward Prayer Committee Member". Most would see this calling as insignificant but I took this calling as my duty to serve those in my ward. Every Sunday I would hand out nice notes to show members they were loved and appreciated for their talents. I would knock on every door and visit with all the members. I may not have been the relief society president but my calling was important and helped so many members continue in faith. I have also been a relief society teacher where I was able to use my talent of teaching to strength the sisters in my ward. I love every calling in the church and I know that they have been called of God. No matter how small you think your calling is, you can make it great and help so many continue in faith.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

I am a firm believer in mathematics and its many wonders. In Math there is always an answer, always a solution, always two pieces that fit together. When doing a math problem you never think there is no solution, you think why can't I understand this. This is the way I see God all around us. The flowers, the people, the sky all have symmetry and solutions. God did not make an unanswerable product on this world. He made two halves, he made the water to drink, animals to eat, the chain of life so all inhabitants could live. He made humans after his own image so we could feel, think, and communicate. The world does not work in such harmony without its soul creator. He lives! I know because I know two halves make a whole. Show more Show less
