Hi I'm Katie

I grew up in Utah. I am an artist. I love helping people. I'm a mormon.

About Me

First of all, I love being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I am currently serving my Mormon mission in Fukuoka Japan and I will be serving from June 2013 - December 2014. I have taken Japanese for 4 years (3 years in High School and 1 year in College) and I love Japanese culture. The #1 thing I love about being a missionary is the fact that I am serving my Heavenly Father and bringing his children back to Christ. My Mom has just finished going through breast cancer. She got diagnosed with it right after I got my misson call, but has recovered very well. Because I have decided to serve God for 18 months, I know that she is being watched over and blessed. I am an artist. I love to draw realism, specifically with graphite (pencil) or colored pencil. I LOVE watching movies and TV shows! My favorite TV show of all time is BBC Sherlock. Why? Because who wouldn't want to be a brilliant detective?! Seriously!...Anyways, I LOVE LOVE LOVE listening to music. I love listening to soundtracks, Josh Groban, Coldplay and Adele. When I am off my mission I want to devlop a talent in music. I want to learn how to play the violin. Lastly, I love helping people and I want to go into psychology and art therapy. I want to be able to help others so that they can come closer to God and Jesus Christ. I want to live the kind of life God wants me to live.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I want to live my life the way God wants me to live. I know that this Gospel brings happiness to others as it has to mine. I know that Jesus Christ is the son of God. I know that we have modern Prophets that guide us today. I know that the power of the priesthood is real. I know that the Book of Mormon is true. I know that through Temples we can be with our families beyond the grave: for time and all eternity. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

How I live my faith

Right now I am living my faith by doing my Heavenly Father's will by being a missionary. Being a missionary means I am a representative of Jesus Christ. I wear a nametag with Jesus Christ's name on it. I am giving God 18 months of my life to serve his children. I have a duty to my Heavenly Father to teach his children the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Why? Because I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true and can bring happiness to individuals and families.
