Hi I'm Kate Howe

Singing, acting, dancing, church, friends, smiling, missionary! I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am the middle child of three in my family. I just finished my freshman year of college and have been called to serve as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the Belgium/Netherlands Area. I plan on returning to college after I serve. I love everything about music, especially doing musical theatre. I love the beach, watching gymnastics, reading a good book, camping, and traveling. I also really enjoy baking brownies. I personally think life should be full of joy and so I rarely go anywhere without a smile that is quickly followed by a laugh!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know Jesus Christ is my Savior and that God loves me and all of His children. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the only true church that has a fullness, of Christ's gospel, His complete gospel. Through Joseph Smith, God and Jesus Christ restored this complete gospel. Just like in times of old, there is a prophet here on the earth today, Thomas S. Monson. He is a prophet, seer, and revelator who speaks for Christ. The Book of Mormon is a true testament of Jesus Christ, just like the Bible. Jesus Christ is my Savior. He loves me so incredibly much, that he suffered and died so I could experience true, everlasting joy by returning to live with God. I have been the recipient of overwhelming joy and peace as I live by God's commandments. God has and always will hear and answer my prayers. God, my Heavenly Father, truly loves me. I know that this is the Lord's true church. This gospel is the way to return to our loving Father in Heaven. This is why I am a mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church every Sunday where I teach young children about Jesus Christ. I study and read The Book of Mormon and the Bible. I pray often. I do my best to always serve others in my community with a smile. I am preparing to devote 18 months of my life to serving the Lord as a missionary.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Kate Howe
Another testament of our Savior, Jesus Christ! The Book of Mormon teaches that Jesus Christ is our Redeemer and Savior. The Book of Mormon is a record kept by prophets who left Jerusalem and traveled to the Americas. These prophets teach of Christ, Heavenly father's plan for His children, and they recorded Christ's appearance to his other sheep in the Americas. This book supports the teachings in the Bible. At the end of the Book of Mormon is the most wonderful promise, if you truly want to know the truth of the Book of Mormon- read it and pray about it. Then you can know through the Holy Ghost that it is true (Moroni 10:4-5). Show more Show less
