Hi I'm Katie Smedley

I am a surgical technologist, I served a mission in Jacksonville, Florida.I am obsessed with Disney. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am Katie. I love Disneyland and anything Disney. I like coloring books, bubbles, bright colors, running, soccer, traveling, meeting people, and laughing. I was valedictorian of my high school and received my certification of surgical technology at age 19. I have helped surgeons with approximately 200 surgeries at Salt Lake Regional and Utah Valley Regional Medical Centers. I received my associates degree from Salt Lake Community College. I served a full time mission in Jacksonville Florida and I loved every part of being a missionary and I love the people of Georgia and Florida. I am currently studying Health Science at Brigham Young University-Idaho.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was born in the church I decided for myself to stick to the church because I love it's ideals on family, education, and loving one another. I have also study, read, and prayed and I know that this is the true church and that my Heavenly Father loves me and loves you too.

How I live my faith

One way I lived my faith and showed my love for my savior was by by serving a mission in Jacksonville Florida. I loved being Jesus Christ's representative and that I got to spend a short 18 months living like the savior did and loving the people of Georgia and Florida. I know that the message of the gospel is the best way to help. I am excited to go forth and teach those who don't know about our church or what we believe and to help them find happiness. I also serve now by helping other members in what we call a ward or a congregation.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

As members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints we believe that we need to develop Christ like attributes and that we are all sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father. We can become like our savior, Jesus Chris, by serving and loving everyone. Show more Show less
