Hi I'm Kathryn

I grew up in a family of seven children. I am the middle child, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a recent high school graduate, graduating with a 4.0 GPA. I was involved with National Honor Society, Track and Field (I was a hurdle runner), Cross Country, Drama Club, and I played the euphonium in Marching Band. To my surprise, I was elected Home Coming Queen my Senior year. I am planning on attending college to study Architecture, but before I do I will serve the Lord on a full time mission for a year and a half.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true church on the earth today. I know it has the fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. How do I know it? Because I have asked. I have knocked and I have received an answer through the power of the Holy Ghost. I know the Book of Mormon is true, that it is scripture and that Joseph Smith was called of God to be a prophet in these the latter days. I know this because I have read the book and prayed and asked if it was true, and I received and answer and I know that it is true. I know we have a living prophet today. I know it because I live it.

How I live my faith

I attend church for three hours every Sunday, but I do not live my faith just on Sundays. Everyday of the week I devout some time to studying the scriptures. When I do I feel like my mind is more awake and receptive to learning things that day, and my eyes are more open to ways I can serve my fellow neighbor. My last year of High School I really enjoyed spending time with the youth in my Stake. This last summer we went on a Trek, which is a reenactment of our pioneer ancestors that crossed the plains. I had the opportunity to be a youth leader in this event and was able to help youth with their family history as they learned more about their ancestors in which they would spend a week walking in their shoes. I was able to speak in front of 300 youth and testify of the important rule the pioneers played in our church history. I was also able to bare witness of the wonderful experiences you can have while finding your ancestors and doing your genealogy work. That week we pulled handcarts throw the plains and rocky ridges of of Wyoming thinking of the sacrifice our ancestors made for us. We ended our Trek by attending the the temple. I love going to the temple.
