Hi I'm Katie Hoggan

I'm a nursing major, softball player, photographer, big sister, missionary, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a student at SUU studying nursing. I am a big sister with three awesome younger siblings. I love my family, and doing anything/everything with them. I'm a photographer, former high school softball player, and a WSI instructor. I love this gospel and I can't wait to serve as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true church on this earth and holds all the keys to help me return to my father in heaven someday. I know the The Book Of Mormon is true and that it can aid us on our journey back home. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet, he translated The Book Of Mormon, and this gospel was restored on the earth again. I know that we have a prophet here on this earth today (President Thomas S Monson) who holds all the priesthood keys and voices the word of God to us. I know that Heavenly Father knows me personally, he loves me, and he is with me each day. I can pray to him and he will help me. I know that Jesus Christ lives! He gave us the greatest gift, the Atonement, to use so we can be made clean again and return back home. I am a Mormon because this gospel is true and it brings me the greatest joy.

How I live my faith

Each morning I think of the serenity prayer "God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference." I try to be a light to others, a tool for the spirit to teach others through. This Gospel has blessed my life so much I want to share that happiness to everyone!

Why is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints called Mormons or Mormonism?

"Mormons" that's our nick name. It comes from The Book Of Mormon. The Book Of Mormon goes hand in hand with the Bible. I believe that The Book Of Mormon is true. It is another testament of Jesus Christ. Our church's name is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Jesus Christ is our Savior and we follow him. Show more Show less
