Hi I'm Katie Julie

I grew up in Alaska, but now live in New York. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like to spend time with my family. I am a recent graduate and received my degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in Financial Analysis. I love to experiment in the kitchen. I play the trumpet, and I enjoy tennis and soccer. My favorite candies are Butterfingers.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I have a testimony that Heavenly Father has a plan for me. By learning gospel principles though His true Church, I have been able to know how I can continually grow and understand what I am needed to do here on this earth. I need the help of our Savior, and by being Mormon, I know how to ask forgiveness and be a better person. I also find the Plan of Happiness and Salvation a beautiful message which gives me hope and comfort for my own life and the lives of those I love.

How I live my faith

I love to sit in on discussions with the missionaries. I learn something new every time. I have held several callings in the Church which have included presiding over sisters in the ward, serving members and teaching the youth. They have all opened by eyes to learn how I can help others more.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Katie Julie
Members of the Church are grateful for the life of Joseph Smith and recognize him as our first prophet in these latter-days, but we do not worship him. We worship our Father in heaven and his son Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
