Hi I'm Katie Thornhill

I am a full-time missionary in Sao Paulo, Brazil. I am a BYU graduate. I am a dancer. I love life. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving as a full-time missionary in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Before my mission, I graduated from BYU where I studied Family Life and Dance. I was a member of the Ballroom Dance Company there and toured throughout England, Germany and Switzerland this summer. I have a wonderful family who have shown me love and taught me correct principles in my life. I am a daughter of a Heavenly Father who loves me, and I love Him.

Why I am a Mormon

I have a testimony of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. The same gospel that He taught during his mortal ministry is the same gospel that is being taught throughout the world today. What a privilege it is for me as a full-time missionary to help others come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel. I know that we are children of a loving Heavenly Father and that we are each on this earth for a purpose. He has a plan for each of us. I know that Jesus Christ is the Savior and Redeemer of the world. I know that He came to do the will of His Father, our Father in Heaven. He has set a perfect example for us to follow. I know that as we come unto Christ, we can experience the greatest joys and satisfactions possible in this life, and in the life to come.

How I live my faith

I am serving a mission because I have a desire to "lose my life" in serving our Heavenly Father's precious children. Before my mission, I had the opportunity to be a teacher to both youth and young adults. I love the youth of the church and know that the potential they have in these, the last days, is tremendous.
