Hi I'm Katie Miller

I grew up in Layton, Utah. I love traveling, sports, reading, movies, and meeting new people. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

One of my all time favorite things to do is travel. I love meeting new people and learning about other cultures. I also love sports and exercising. I've played soccer my entire life, and also played other sports such as softball, basketball, volleyball, skiing, snowboarding, and wakeboarding. I love being in the outdoors, especially when an amazing view is involved. I love stories whether they're shown on a TV screen, written in a book, or shared from the mouth. I am an only daughter with 4 brothers - my brothers are my heroes. I'm currently serving a mission for the LDS Church in Texas. I attended my freshmen year of college at Brigham Young University and plan to do so after my mission. I plan to study Graphic Design or Advertising, although I'm pretty indecisive and it will probably change! (:

Why I am a Mormon

The reason I am a Mormon is simple - because this gospel makes me happy. I know that by living the teachings and standards of the Church, I am doing what God would have me do. I am choosing to be who I know God would want me to be and that is what brings joy. I know that this Church was organized by Jesus Christ and that he has called a prophet upon the Earth today - our loving prophet Thomas S. Monson. President Monson helps us know God's will and leads us to become more Christlike. I know that the Church was organized by Joseph Smith and that he did see God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. I know that or Heavenly Father called Joseph to restore his true Church and also commanded Joseph to translate an ancient record called the Book of Mormon. I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God, as is the Bible. I know as we come to read both of these books, that the will of God will become more clear to us and that we will better understand our purpose and who we are - Children of God. I know that temples are the house of God and that visiting the temple and making covenants in the temple will bless us and help us overcome our trials in life. Lastly, I know that I am a daughter of the Almighty God, and that each of us are His children. I know that he knows us personally - knows how we're feeling, our strengths, our weaknesses, our thoughts, our needs, and our desires. I know that we can pray to Him and further develop our relationship with Him and that He will answer our prayers. I know that Jesus Christ atoned for the sins of the world. I know that He bled and died for us so that we may return to Him and our Father in Heaven. He suffered every pain, felt every weakness, and knew every guilt that we have felt. He has gone through everything we have and more. I know that through the Atonement of Christ, we have the ability to repent so that we may be saved. I know this gospel is true with all my heart. Its the gospel of happiness & invite all to be a part of it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending my church meetings each week and staying involved. I served in the presidencies of my youth groups and later as a teaching coordinator in the women's organization, called the Relief Society.
