Hi I'm Katie

I am serving in the Iowa Des Moines Mission. I love the mountains, sour patch watermelons and I am a Mormon.

About Me

Before my mission, I attended college at Southern Utah University. I was studying Elementary Education. I plan on going to Utah Valley University after my mission. I have the best family in the world and absolutely love spending time with them! Some of my favorite things to do are baking, being outside, country swing dancing and wake boarding.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I would be completely lost without the Savior in my life. He is my anchor. I know that He lives to bless us, to teach us, to heal us, and most importantly that He loves us! I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and through Him, all things can be perfected. I know that by living a virtuous and righteous life, I can live with my family for all eternity. This gospel gives me hope in time of struggles and it brings me pure happiness. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that it is another testament of Jesus Christ. This gospel is such a blessing in my life and I don't know where I would be today without it!

How I live my faith

I try my very best every day to live worthy to receive the blessings that are promised to us when we keep the commandments and follow the prophet. I love being a missionary and being able to share the love and life of our Savior Jesus Christ. I help people learn for themselves how much the gospel can change their own lives and how powerful the Atonement of Jesus Christ can be. I constantly try to live righteously and be a good example to friends and family. I live my faith day by day because I love Jesus Christ and want to follow the example He has set.
