Hi I'm Katie

I'm a convert, I'm a runner, and I am currently serving in the England Manchester Mission

About Me

I'm currently serving the Lord in the England Manchester Mission! I've been a member for a little over a year and a half, and it's been the best decision I've ever made. Before I came on my mission I ran cross country and track for University, and when I return home I will study to become a nurse. I am the only Latter-Day Saint in my family, but I have much support from them regardless.

Why I am a Mormon

I've never been a huge religious person, even as growing up in a Baptist church it didn't feel like it was doing much for me and I felt as though something was missing. I have a good friend who I've known since 5th grade and she is a Mormon. I didn't know she was Mormon until my senior year in high school because that is when she invited me to go to church with her and then stay over for dinner. Of course I was not all in for going to a Mormon church, but why not? So I gave it a try and it felt different. Like the best kind of different there had ever been. I then went once or twice more over the next few months but never really thought about joining. Then my friend invited my once more and asked me if it'd be okay if the Sister Missionaries ate with us and taught a lesson afterwards. I said yes, and then this became the routine for the next month until I said I wanted to be baptised as a member of the church. I had never been more excited and nervous at the same time! And now I have been learning and progressing for over a year now, and I cannot wait to keep growing in this church! I know that through that experience the Holy Ghost was testifying to me that this was the right path, that this church is Christ's church. I know that the Book of Mormon is the most true book on Earth. I know that Joseph Smith was a true Prophet of the Lord and he restored His church on the Earth today. I also know that we have a true Prophet on the earth today. I'm so very grateful for the knowledge that I've gained and how I've grown since becoming a member of this church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by remembering to do the little things; like read and study my scriptures, and pray every single day. I try really hard each day to just remember that everything is in the Lords hands, and I try to trust Him.
