Hi I'm Kate

I was raised near Ocean City, NJ. I absolutely love sports! I'm serving in the Idaho Twin Falls Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Well I am always excited to experience new things! Especially if it involves sports! I grew up playing pretty much every sport possible, however, in high school I played Field Hockey, Basketball, and Softball. I also love surfing with my brothers when I get the chance. I attend college at BYU-I and I'm currently serving a mission for the LDS church! I hope to open my own pre-school or become an Event Planner for a major company both of those paths would be so much fun! I come from a family of 5, I have an older brother and a younger brother and of course my amazing and wonderful Mom and Dad!

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, by amazing parents who had a strong faith and determination to follow Christ and His teachings. Through the example of my parents I too, felt the peace and happiness that comes from living our lives the way Jesus Christ has taught us. As I was taught the teachings and principles that Jesus Christ taught, and as I strived to live those teachings I felt in my heart through the Holy Ghost, the Truth of those principles I was taught. Through my life I have made mistakes and I have faced challenges where I wasn't exactly following Christ, in those times I felt the sorrow and pain that comes as a consequence from my actions. I know that by following Christ and making that decision to obey His commandments I can have peace and happiness. The best choice I have made in my life was to be baptized by immersion by the right power and authority of God. Through making that promise and commitment to follow God I have been able to continue on and learn more of my Savior and Redeemer, I have been able to make more sacred promises with my Heavenly Father that will lead me to be happy after this life. I know that as I continue to try my best to follow my Savior, Jesus Christ I will one day return to live in happiness with my Heavenly Father. I also know that my happiness after this life will be determined on the effort I put into having that faith in Christ and following His teaching here in this life on earth. I know that everyone can have that same happiness and peace of living with their Heavenly Father! It is possible as we truly live His principles, have that Faith in Jesus Christ and make the sacred promise of Baptism, receiving the Gift of the Holy Ghost and striving to always follow Christ throughout our life here on earth. I love my Savior Jesus Christ, I'm grateful that My Heavenly Father sent His Son for us, I'm grateful that he has provided a way for us to be happy!

How I live my faith

Right now I am serving a mission for the LDS Church, what that means is that I leave my home and family for 18 months and I serve my Heavenly Father! I do this by helping others learn of the love that God has for them! For 18 months I completely focus on bringing others to Jesus Christ, including myself! This experience of coming to know people on a spiritual level and helping them to know of their Heavenly Father is so amazing and I wouldn't trade it for anything! I know that Heavenly Father loves and knows each and every single person on this earth. God, is the Father of our spirits, He is aware of the Challenges and trials that you and I face every day. He loves you so much and He wants to help you, He wants you to be happy! As you follow the teachings of Jesus Christ and as you build that personal relationship with Heavenly Father through Prayer and Scripture Study you will experience joy and peace in this life and the life to come.
