Hi I'm Kate

I'm from Wales. I'm a mother. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi I am mum to 2 teenage boys, I was widowed suddenly 10 years ago so am now a quite independent woman. I like to run - and should do more of it - and love being in the fresh air. Luckily we live beside the sea. I'm doing a part time degree in criminology, and work in a challenging job too.

Why I am a Mormon

I used to think that the Mormons were weird - but we are not weird! I was invited to church by a friend, I did not think I was looking for anything from it, but I got talking to some young missionaries. I felt sorry for them being away from home at Christmas so I invited them for dinner. I listened politely to their lesson after dinner but I was still not interested really. One day I opened the Book of Mormon they'd left for us and all of a sudden I knew that this church was true. The Book of Mormon is true! It all started to make sense and I knew that this was a life I wanted to lead, as did my children. We were baptised together and the church has been an enormous blessing in our lives. I am so happy that we have the Gospel in our lives and I know that Jesus Christ lived, died and rose again for us. Joining this church has been the making of us and I thank the Lord every day that we listened to His message.

How I live my faith

We are new to the church, but have embraced it fully. I help out with our young women in church so I take lessons on Sunday and also do youth night on a Wednesday, and help with Stake youth activities. It is a true honour to be part of those young people's lives. Both my sons participate in the church's youth programme and they enjoy it so much, and have made wonderful friends.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The a Book of Mormon is called Another Testament of Jesus Christ. It talks about Jesus visiting the Americas after His Resurrection. He taught them the Gospel and this Book supports and compliments the Bible. The Book of Mormon is named after Mormon, one of the last ancient prophets. We believe that this Book is true and it is one of our treasured scriptures. Show more Show less
