Hi I'm Kate

I'm an adament reader. I'm striving to achieve things to the best of my abilities. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Kate and I am currently a college student at my local university. I love writing and I read a lot of books since I have always found that so fascinating. I hope to earn a career as some sort of writer whether I will become a novelist, screenwriter, or a journalist. I also enjoy music and I am trying to learn the guitar and the piano since I have always been interested in those instruments. Ever since I was a kid I've always had this silly dream of wanting to become famous, but now I realize that it's what you do and not where you come from that results in a good life. It's about making the most in any situation that you live in so in reality you don't need to be famous to have a great life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because God has given me a purpose in this life. For the longest time I used to to struggle with what the meaning of life was and my purpose on this Earth. I now understand thanks to this church that the meaning of life is to have joy and to spread the word of happiness across the world so that everyone can have a happy life as well as a happy afterlife when we return to the presence of Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. This is reassuring to me because it means that there is so much in store for us that we don't even realize. While we should make the most of our life here on Earth, it's also nice to remember that this life is not the end and that we will continue to live until the end of time. That alone is enough to help me believe, it gives me hope to know these things and to know that they are true. So I invite you to learn more so that you can have a good understanding and experience this hope and peace as well.

How I live my faith

Right now I am currently attending a Single Adult Ward for many college students that are single like myself. We are not the biggest ward, but there are lots of very nice people and they are very fun to hang out with. Everyone has their own interests and goals and it's very interesting to see all of these different people come together to worship the Lord despite how different we all are. I like that we all have our faith in common since it's reassuring to know that there are others like you that believe in the same things.

To what do you attribute the growth of the Church?

I think that the growth of the church is due to the fact that we help bring families together and help people feel comfort and joy for this life as well as the next. Show more Show less

How can I find someone to talk with, in person, about the Mormon religion?

You can always go the the missionaries. They will help answer any questions you may have. You can also find a nearby church and attend the meetings to learn more, the members will also be able to help you answer any questions that you may have as well. Show more Show less

What is being a Mormon like?

Being a Mormon is not that different since we are still normal people that make mistakes and are like everyone else in that sense. Although we have many blessings and are very happy with the church, not all of our lives are perfect. But if you live the commandments and strive hard to make God a top priority in your life then you will have many blessings. So our lives are a bit different because of the standards that we have, but not that different since we are still people too. Show more Show less

What is the Book of Mormon?

The book of Mormon is another testament of Christ and it goes along with the Bible. Both of these books are very important and we consider them both to be important scriptures to us. Show more Show less

Why don’t Mormons drink coffee, tea, or alcohol? What is the Mormon Church’s law of health and proper diet?

At first I didn't understand why we couldn't have coffee either. But as you learn more about the things that we don't believe in taking into our bodies, you will find that they are all addictive substances. Because addictions are harmful we don't believe in taking those things into our bodies so that we do not have to worry about addiction problems. However, there are also programs to help people with addictions as well. Also having clean bodies can welcome the spirit into our lives and we were to take harmful substances in, then we push out the spirit because he cannot dwell in an unclean thing. Show more Show less
