Hi I'm Katie

A Sister Missionary going from Utah to Ukraine

About Me

I am about to embark on an LDS mission to Kyiv, Ukraine. I love everything outdoors. Except bathrooms. They stink. Literally. I am pretty average other than the fact that I love my religion so much that I am sacrificing my immediate time, so others can be with their families for eternity. I love the LDS church and I am proud to be a part of it. My quotable quote is, “Give someone the gift of your full attention.” I know it can be hard to look up from Pokemon-Go and talk about real things, but its worth it. GOTTA CATCH ‘EM ALL! (“‘EM” being investigators of course.)

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the LDS church. Even though I didn't exactly "choose" in the first place to be in this gospel, I am fully committed to it now. I know Heavenly Father loves me and wants me to be successful in this earthly life. My family has been through some rough times but EVERY SINGLE TIME, (I can't emphasize that enough) He has shown his mercy and helped us through it. Whether it be financial struggles, relationship struggles, you name it and we've probably overcome it with His help. I am a Mormon because there is nothing on this planet that makes me happier than this gospel. Other churches have great, wonderful doctrine but the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has the fullness of the gospel. I know these things are true and I say them in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I live my faith with love. I am not saying I'm perfect yet because believe me, I still have to get in my car and blast the music to calm down sometimes. But it does help if you try to imagine the people who frustrate you, as our Father in Heaven thinks of them. With an understanding heart and with love and concern for them. I am called to be a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am where He wants me to be. :)
