Hi I'm Katie

I'm a nurse in training, a music teacher, and a Mormon.

About Me

I am going to college to become a nurse and love science! Being in nursing school is hard work, but it's great because it means that service will be my job in the future. To help me get through school, I teach singing lessons to kids. Music is one of my greatest joys in life and I absolutely love singing and helping others find their voice. I also love the great outdoors of the Rocky Mountains and spend whatever time I can in the mountains!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it brings me joy and makes me a better person. The gospel of Jesus Christ is all about serving others and improving yourself while making the world a better place. I want to help make the world better, as well as serve God. I am also a Mormon because of the importance it places on families. I believe that families are the most important unit of society and the most important unit to God. I want to be with my family forever, just as Heavenly Father intends :)

How I live my faith

I live my faith every day by participating in my church! I go to and sometimes help plan weekly youth activities to better get to know people my age at church. I also have had the opportunity to teach Sunday School to young women, which I love doing. I serve any way I can in my church! I've also decided to serve a mission to try to help others come to Christ! I will serve a mission for 18 months to try to bring others the joy I have found in the gospel of Christ.

Why are only some Mormons allowed into temples? Is there something secret going on in Mormon temples? What goes on in Mormon temples?

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has many temples. Only baptized members of the Church who are qualified and prepared through a lifestyle of service and obedience to commandments. They are used to do sacred ordinances, including marriages to bind husbands and wives together forever with their children. The temples are also used to perform saving ordinances for those who died without ever having the opportunity to learn of Jesus Christ. The things we do in temples are very sacred, which is why we don't talk about them much outside the temple. Show more Show less
