Hi I'm Katie

I will soon serve in the SAN JOSE CALIFORNIA mission and I am proud to be a Mormon!

About Me

Life is GOOD! I am currently studying at BYU-Idaho and I have just been called to serve in the SAN JOSE CALIFORNIA, SPANISH SPEAKING MISSION!! I grew up in Alpine, Utah (my favorite place in the world) and I attended Lone Peak High School and was a high school cheerleader. I play the piano and a little bit of the guitar. I love skiing and doing anything with my family! I LOVE good music and concerts are my absolute favorite! I love traveling the world and hope to continue my adventures forever! I love being a mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon and I wouldn't give my faith up for anything! Being a Mormon encourages me to be the best person that I can be, to be grateful for all that I have been blessed with, and helps me fulfill my desire to be happy in life. Through this gospel, I know that I have a purpose in life, and that there is a plan for me. I love the comforting feeling knowing that I have a Savior who has suffered for my sins, pain and afflictions, temptations and sorrows. Jesus Christ knows me better than I know myself, and because of this, I know I am never alone. Heavenly Father has created a way for each of His children to make it back to Him and obtain eternal life. He knows each of our needs, desires and the trials we are facing and can and WILL comfort us through these times. It is comforting knowing whatever I am going through, the Lord will be there to carry me, one step at a time. I know that Jesus Christ lives, and loves me, and loves each of us. I am a Mormon because I know that this gospel makes me HAPPY!!! :)

How I live my faith

There are many ways that I live my faith, from going to church every Sunday, to praying to my Father in Heaven, and soon I will be sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with the people in San Jose, California! While growing up I enjoyed attending church on Sunday, fun group activities on Wednesday, and participating in a LDS seminary class three times a week. I would look forward to meeting new friends, learning more about the gospel and growing a stronger relationship with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. Simply, I live my faith by trying to be an example to those around me. I have tried to live by one of my favorite quotes: "Live in such a way that those who know you but don't know God will come to know God because they know you." By living my faith and following the simple commandments, I have seen my testimony of the Savior, Jesus Christ grow.
