Hi I'm Katie

I grew up in Springville, Utah. I work at a movie theater. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I went to high school in Utah. In the three years of high school I was able to participate on the track and cross country team, the dance company, played the violin for the Chamber orchestra, was a member on the varsity cheer leading squad. I love ice skating, dancing, and gymnastics. I love the fine arts. Dancing is one of my favorite things to do in life, where I get to express myself and my emotion in an entertaining way. I've done gymnastics ever since I was seven years old and still love to do it today. I love long boarding in the summer when it's warm outside. I work as a manager for a movie theater and I have loved this job for the few years I've been working there. I love to read when I can find the time. My favorite book is The Goose Girl. I am attending college as of now and can't quite decide what I would like to major in. I'm not married yet and don't plan on marrying for a few years from now.

Why I am a Mormon

All my life I've been trying to figure out why I am here. I've always been taught that I am a child of God and that he loves me like he loves all his children on earth. As I've lived my life I wanted to know for sure not only why I am here but why is everyone here on this earth. I thought there has to be a purpose for all this. As my thoughts became deeper I began to feel God's love for me as I tried to seek out his truths. I have come to believe in Christ. People talk about Jesus all the time but I really believe in him and I know that he truly made a sacrifice for every single person created. I know that I am one of God's children and he loves me and guides me when I am a little or very lost. God wants all his children to be happy and successful in their lives. I believe that when we pass away from this earth life, that it's not the end. How could we all the sudden be non-existent? To me that doesn't make sense and life wouldn't make sense. Everything has a purpose and I know that the righteous things we do on earth will show God that we are grateful for the blessings he gives us and that we love him. God wants us to be able to live with him forever. We can live for eternity with God and our families here on earth even after we die here if we follow the way that Christ has made for us.

How I live my faith

My mother teaches some of the young women in my ward and I often attend her class and offer my assistance when she needs it. I like to chat with some of my friends in my ward a lot and get to know them better. I like to make cookies for good family friends that I have.
