Hi I'm Kathryn

I attend BYU. I love to swim. I am serving a mission in Kyiv Ukraine. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Kathryn. I am originally from California, but am now attending Brigham Young University in Provo Utah. I have been assigned to labor in the Kyiv, Ukraine mission speaking Russian. My hobbies include swimming, playing water polo, and spending time with friends. I love Mexican food and being outdoors. Nothing is more important to me than my family, friends, and the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I love being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I do not know where my life would be without it. The church is a support system that is like a second family. I know that I can go to any member of my church family and they would be there to love and help me. Not only that, but I also know Heavenly Father is always there for me and that I am never alone. It brings me great joy to know that I can live with my family again one day in the presence of God. This is my ultimate goal and I work hard to try and strive to fulfill it. I feel the best way to thank our Heavenly Father for all that he has done for us is to be our best selves and to live the teachings and commandments that he has given us. This is the least l I can do for him! While some may find the commandments outlined for the members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to be restricting, I find them extremely empowering. They help me become a better person and maintain my agency so that I may be in control of my life. This allows me to be happy and have a bright future. No matter what curve balls life throws, I know that I can always rely on my testimony and faith in Jesus Christ to get me through. Being a Mormon is what makes me truly happy. I wouldn't want it any other way and I want the same for you, which is why I want to share this message with all those I meet!

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by being a support to other women who are my age. Whether another girl needs help with a project or just someone to talk to, I am always there for them! I strive to be happy, helpful, and share the light of christ with all those I come in contact with.
