Hi I'm Kattie

I grew up in Washington State. I am a Mechanic. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am a very independent person. I enjoy doing things for myself and working with my hands. I graduated from high school last year and graduated this year from college with my Associates in Applied Science in Automotive Technology. I have worked as a housekeeper, nanny, and of course automotive technician and have learned very different things with each opportunity. One of my favorites was being a nanny. That is probably why the Lord called me as a nursery leader. I hope for children one day (though not as many as my mom wants me to have) and look forward to motherhood. Children are sometimes the best way to connect with the Lord. They say things that are sometimes so obvious that you haven't thought about it, or really appreciated it. And they make you laugh. It is an amazing feeling working with children. I also enjoy things like music, dancing, cooking, gardening, and of course working on cars. As I said I like doing things myself, I find it very for-filling to create a cake, or musical piece, or plant, ext. However, at the moment, I am preparing to serve in the New Mexico Farmington, Mission. I am very excited and have looked forward to this opportunity for many years. I hope to meet many great people and have amazing experiences.

Why I am a Mormon

Why I am a Mormon is a hard question. It might have to do with the fact that it is the only church that really makes me feel the spirit. It is a church where someone can ask questions. It is a church that is lived, not a Sunday only church. I put it into action, in my everyday life. It is a church that is a family, we take care of each other from all around the world. We don't just call each other Brother and Sister, we really mean it. It is a church where it is ok to make mistakes. However it is also a church that teaches it is important to change and learn from what mistakes we make. We celebrate and we laugh but we also have time for contemplation and learning. All of these things are very important to me. But I also have prayed and felt the spirit and had it testify that it is the true church, which is the most important and real reason I was a Mormon. You can live Mormon standards and not have a testimony. Many do, and have never heard of the church. But when you pray it opens up more doors that you could imagine for blessings you wouldn't even know to ask for. The joy I have felt serving the Lord in his church is indescribable, and I invite join me, because it is really awesome.

How I live my faith

Everyone is different in living the faith, but nobody is perfect, especially me. I am not the best at regular prayer or scripture study, everyone has their weaknesses. However I think it is most important to keep on trying because it does make all the difference. Nothing is accomplished in a day, it just doesn't happen very often. Faith is something to be built, and when you give your everything, he will make up the difference. I enjoy working with the little ones in church because they are the best example of that, and in the end we are all children in the gospel learning and growing. Be curious, ask questions. Just like little children do. Be active, go to things and activities. Create friendships that will build you up. This is what will make the difference. That is how I live my faith, by living, and learning, and trying again and again. It is a daily battle of catching myself, and changing my every day behaviors and actions until I emulate the light of Christ in everything I do.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Kattie
Serving a mission is a very personal thing. It is encouraged to serve one, especially if you are a young man. However it is beneficial and an amazing experience for anyone willing. Show more Show less
