Okay so..... it has been a very long kind of hard couple of weeks. I have been thinking a lot lately about my life and what I should be doing. For some reason school, has just not been my thing lately. I don't know why. I just don't have that much of an interest. So after a lot of pondering and thinking, I think I have come to a conclusion. A MISSION. Thats right. I am now about 99% sure that I am going to serve a mission. This is crazy.... typing this I am terrified. But I feel that it is the right thing for me to do. I keep re thinking everything, and saying oh I can't go because of this and this, but my Mom just keeps saying have faith and it will work out. Plus the lesson in Young Womens today was about being STRONG AND OF GOOD COURAGE. I think it was at that moment that i decided for sure. I am still scared out of my mind. But hopefully it will work out. I know it will. I am such a home body, and so it is really going to be a challenge for me, but I know that this is what is planned for me. I know that it is what I need to be doing. Preparing for a mission. I can't wait. Yes, I know I am not 21 until December but it is going to come faster than ya think. So there it is. I am just glad that I can have one more girls camp with my mom, and a family vacation planned as well. Colton and I will both be gone at the same time, so double blessings for my parents I guess. It will be good. Well only a few people know, so if you read this congrats that you are one of the few. Thanks for reading. I promise I will try and be better at updating this. And I really need to get some pictures up. I will work on that.


  1. WAHOO!!!! There are so many things I could say here and I'm just so excited for you and this decision you're making. I remember being TERRIFIED about serving and thinking, "Where the heck is the Lord going to send me and am I going to be able to handle it?" But you know what? The Lord really does give those He calls the ability to do their calling. I was such a homebody too - I never went out with friends and would much rather spend time with family. But that too will help you serve in ways you've never imagined. I am SO excited for you! I just get jumping for joy when I think about all the hard times but most especially all the AMAZING times you are going to have while you serve. I love you Katee and you will be one awesome missionary. You are unique and the Lord needs that uniqueness to help others out there that are searching. You are smart and talented and energetic and SO full of love and the Lord knows it. He knows exactly where you need to be to help others as well as yourself. Can you tell I'm super excited for you?!?

  2. Haha thanks Laura, you are the best. I feel bad that you had to read it here first. I was going to call you first. And then I called and you didn't answer lol. But i am pretty excited. Thanks for your support. Love ya.

  3. Katee...that is awesome!!! All that Laura said "ditto" you will be amazing! You have many great things in store for your life. Go after them! One at a time...

  4. Yeah for going for it, Katee! Like Laura said, it's tough at first, but you will also be AMAZING!!!! You have such a loving, sincere, down-to-earth way with people. So many hearts will be touched, and your love of the gospel will radiate to others!! I didn't realize you weren't 21 yet-- crazy me thought you turned 21 in December! See how mature you are? That will be doubly awesome to have both you and Colton out at the same time. I want to talk to you more about it!! Love you to pieces!
