Hi I'm Katarina

My life is a delicious blend of music, sports and cheesecake. I served in the Adriatic North Mission. Bok. Minnesota forever.

About Me

I was chosen to serve God's children in the Balkans (aka the former Yugoslavia) for 18 months as a proselyting missionary. My experience was indescribably good. I fell so in love with the people and the nature there. I also love to run and play basketball, volleyball, frisbee, and also do everything else, as long as it's fun. If you can't get a hold of me I am probably reading a really legit book. I can't wait to finish my degree in French education, have a family, and travel the world. Life is meant to be enjoyed and I plan to do as much of that as possible.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a Mormon is the coolest thing you could be doing right now. We millennials and post-millennials would say that it is "lit". This world is crazy, and it's hard to know what to believe and which paths to take. It doesn't help that I have the tendency to choose the easy and fun as opposed to the difficult and right. That's essentially why I need to rely on Jesus Christ and His true teachings; without them, I'd be a total mess.

How I live my faith

As a member of this church , I try to live my faith every minute of every day. I chose to dedicate a year and a half of my life to full-time missionary service so that I can help other people come to know the beautiful truths that I have been taught in this church. This gospel is so filled with hope and love that it's impossible for me to not want other people to be aware of it. It has a part in every aspect of my life.

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

The other Mormon women I know are strong, hardworking, and self-reliant. We pursue higher education or training, serve in the community, and, if we're married, we work together with our husbands to raise a family and support it. There is no part of our doctrine that teaches that females are subservient to males, and if anyone thinks such, I encourage them to dig deeper and learn more. Go to the source. Of course, women and men possess different God-given responsibilities, and those serve to help us to achieve our highest potential. Each of us plays a unique role during this life. Yes, we believe in equality of men and women, but we do not believe that they should be the exact same and fill the same roles. That would be boring and pointless. Show more Show less
