Hi I'm Kaity

I'm a fitness fanatic. I've lost a child, and I know there is nothing more important in life than being a mother. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a tiny town the youngest sister of four older brothers. I went to state college and met the love of my life and found my passion for fitness. I have run several races and enjoy training and helping others to reach their goals. My husband and I are now fighting the fight of finishing professional school together. We've been married 2 1/2 years and have a dog and cat. We also have a daughter, who's not with us on this earth. She waits to be rejoined with us in that eternal kingdom on high. She was gone before she took her first breath. I don't have all the answers as to why I needed to have this experience in my life, and my heart constantly aches at her loss, but I do know that God has a plan for me and for her, and this is part of it.

Why I am a Mormon

Some might say that I am a Mormon based on my parents beliefs. I was raised in the church, but have had times that I have strayed. Eventually we all are on our own without our parents to rely on anymore, and in those times, we have no one to rely on but the Lord. There is one concrete truth that solidified my testimony of this gospel, we can always repent of our sin and be forgiven. The Savior knows our each and every struggle and has felt every moment of pain that we have ever felt, in a way that no one else ever could. His sacrifice is the reason. But let me tell you something else. Non-Christians may wonder how it is possible to believe in any God that could allow such horrible things to happen. Let me assure you, I am familiar with the horrors that the world has to offer, and know that nothing happens without a plan and a purpose. Even if this gospel were not true, I would rather live my life in the blissful knowledge that I will see my daughter again than be in constant anguish and despair, finding no solace. The Savior offers comfort and solice that can come from no other source. This church is true, there is no option but for it to be true, and if you do not know of a surety, I challenge you to seek it out. "Ask and ye shall receive, knock and it shall be opened unto you."

How I live my faith

I live my faith in surviving through each day. There isn't a part of my life that it doesn't touch. It is in my prayer, my scripture study, and always in my thoughts. I work from home, and don't get out of the house much, but when I do it is usually church related. I serve with the youth, as first counselor in the Young Women presidency, which means that I am primarily over the 14-15 year old girls. We meet each Tuesday night for an activity, and spend part of our meetings on Sunday together. I couldn't love the youth of our congregation more. It is such a blessing to prepare the future leaders of the world. We moved away from family to be here, and would have struggled if not for our church family. We were welcomed with open arms and fell into a group of close friends, an act which does not go unnoticed. I can't tell you the fun I have with my friends from the ward having girls nights, throwing baby showers for each other, crafting, cooking, exercising, and just talking. Love of our brothers and sisters is how we live.
