Hi I'm Kaitlyn

I love reading, ice cream, and spending time with my family; and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Mesa, Arizona. I am the 2nd of seven children and I love my family! I love to read and I love anything Disney!! I am going to college, majoring in Elementary Education. I am taking a break from school for 18 months because I have been called to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Pocatello, Idaho.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, I know it, I live it, I love it! I have attended church my whole life and it is such an important part of who I am. As I have gone to church, participated in activities, and tried to keep the commandments and do what was asked of me, I have come to know for myself that this is the restored gospel of Jesus Christ through reading the scriptures and praying to ask Heavenly Father if it is true. He has answered me and He will answer anyone who prays, with real intent, to know the truth. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and that he atoned for me and for each of us. Through His Atonement we not only can be forgiven of our sins, but we can feel His comfort and His love, because He is the only person who knows personally who we are, what we are going through, and who we can become. I am so grateful for His atoning sacrifice, for He truly has "borne our griefs and carried our sorrows". Because I love Him and I know of His love for me, I choose to follow His teachings and keep His commandments so I can return to live with Him someday!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to keep the commandments of the Lord. I enjoy going to church each Sunday and learning more and being able to come closer to my Savior Jesus Christ. I go out to serve with the sister missionaries to teach, to serve, and to prepare myself to be a full-time missionary. I love attending the temple and the peace that comes just from being on temple grounds. I love reading the scriptures each day and learning about the wonderful stories and learning about our loving Heavenly Father's plan for us.
