Hi I'm Kate

I grew up in Utah, I love to create art, and I am a Mormon!

About Me

I love to use my hands, be it sculpting, painting, crocheting, cooking, or anything of that sort. I love hiking in southern Utah, traveling in general, singing, playing piano, guitar, and penny whistle, and reading. I also love movies, bonus features, and seeing how anything is made. I would love to live off the grid and be an artist/rock climber/animal trainer/woodcarver. Nature inspires me and if it weren't for mosquitos and spiders, I would always be outside. I have a big family, and they are my favorite people to be with! We love to sing together, and that is when I am at my happiest. Currently, I am at University and am majoring in illustration!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the Gospel of Jesus Christ brings true joy to my life! It answers the questions of existence and purpose, focuses on serving others, and is the only way to be with my family for eternity, which is the most important thing to me. I was raised in this church, and I know, based on personal experience, that when I do not keep the commandments, read my scriptures, pray, or serve, my life feels extremely empty, and I become a very self-centered, unhappy person. The Gospel brings clarity, hope, peace, and love. I know that I am a Daughter of God and that He loves me. I know that I am on the Earth to learn and grow, so that when I die, I might receive all of the blessings that Heavenly Father has in store for me. I am a Mormon because this church has the proper authority to help me make covenants with God so I can live with Him again. There is no greater comfort to me in life than knowing that I am not alone. Heavenly Father is always with me, and cheering for me to improve my character and help Him bring joy to the rest of His children on the earth. I want everyone to be able to experience the same joy that I have had, and I know that it is only through Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ that this is possible! Life on earth is a happy (and short) period of our existence! I plan on making the most of it by participating in Heavenly Father's church!

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith every day, and try to make Heavenly Father the focus of my actions. I sing in my ward choir with my sister, teach the women in my ward once a month, and try to make uplifting art that makes people smile and appreciate the everyday sweet moments in life. I read my scriptures and pray every day, and try to serve the people in my ward and home. I love to go to the Temple and feel the peace that it brings as I serve there. I love to pay tithing, too! I know that when I give back to Heavenly Father, He sends buckets of blessings to me.
