Hi I'm Paige Katene

I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am the second eldest of 6 children. Born in New Zealand, raised in Australia. I am an Australian with a Maori and Samoan Background. Have a pretty easy going personality. 20 years young still have a lot to learn, discover and find in this mortal life.

Why I am a Mormon

I wouldn't be the person I am today it wasn't for Mormon Missionaries. Our journey as investigators was probably the best time of my life. My little 6 year old brother had lured the missionaries to our front gate. When I arrived home from work saw my 18 year old brother with the missionaries. I thought sucked in your stuck and have fun getting away from them. My brother started to actually get involved with them. I was like thinking " what in the world is my brother doing? " I had asked him a few times what they discussed. His reply was " join us and find out for yourself. I decided to test it out, I had nothing to lose or had nothing going for myself at that time. From than on 8 weeks later My brother, his girlfriend and myself got baptised 19.04.2014. Before becoming a member the desire to serve had kicked in...I will be serving in New Zealand Hamilton Mission leaving July 16 2015. I am a Mormon because I know The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints is the true church on this earth. I know that it has been restored through our prophet Joseph Smith. The gospel has taught me to know and love our father in heaven. I now have love and understanding for our saviour Jesus Christ and his purpose. I really do see everyone, everything and the world differently. I have finally received the happiness I always desired. I can promise you the gospel will bless you, say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

Everyday I remind myself the baptism covenants I promised to keep. Daily Prayers always help me draw closer to our Heavenly father. Attending church events and activities strengthens my testimony in service. There is days where I try my hardest and other days I don't. But that's when I learn from my mistakes and depend on Jesus Christ Atonement to receive forgiveness and peace. I repeatedly try to apply the gospel in my everyday life. Also its the small things that truly converts me in the gospel over again and again. My calling is one of the things that really keeps on focused on what's important and needs to be done.
