Hi I'm Katelyn

I grew up in Tennessee, I am a cancer survivor, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love anything and everything to do with the outdoors, unless it's camping. Big lover of all sports, eating, and naps. Married to the greatest guy on the planet who is my best friend and biggest supporter. Always looking for ways to be involved in planning and organizing events. A big fan of Make-A-Wish and all that they do for so many children and families. Above everything else, the best time spent is the time I spend with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a Mormon, or a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, is something that brings me daily joy and gratitude for my loving Savior and Heavenly Father. I have been blessed to see my Father in Heaven's love for me and His hand in all of the details of my life as I live and obey His commandments daily. I know that He loves me. I know that He is always there for me, reaching out His hand to help me through the daily trials of life. He listens and hears our prayers. He will never leave us. It is through Him that I am able to become better each and every day. I am able to grow and learn from my mistakes. It is through His son, Jesus Christ, and his atoning sacrifice that we are able to fully experience all of the blessings and joy that this life has to give us. I know, and I believe that this life was created for us to have joy. As we repent of our sins and follow on the path that our Father in Heaven has created for us, we will be able to return and live with Him, and experience even more happiness than ever before.

How I live my faith

Through daily service towards others, I am able to learn and see the hands of my loving Heavenly Father in my day to day life. I actively seek out and help the members of the congregation through monthly home visits to check on them and serve in any way possible. Each week (Sunday) I am given the opportunity to prepare and teach a lesson for the youth (ages 12-13). Teaching these lessons allows me to gain a deeper appreciation and knowledge of the work and love that Christ and our Father in Heaven have for us.
