Hi I'm Katia

I love music. I love my mom. I love missionaries. I love being a Mormon!

About Me

I am from Ukraine. I speak Russian and Ukrainian but I LOVE to speak English. Starting this fall I will use my English every day as I study at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. I love my family. I will miss my brother and more importantly my adorable cat Ася (ah-see-uh). My parents are amazing. (I will probably miss them a little bit, too.) They bought me a piano, which I have played off and on for 9 years. I like to learn the songs that are sung by my favorite bands. I listen to Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance, All Time Low, and Memphis May Fire. In my free time I like to hang out with my friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have received a testimony that this is the true church. There was a time in my life that for four years I did not attend church. After a while, I realized that I wanted something better in my life. I watched my friends that were members of the church and I missed being that happy. With time, I started to come back to church. I realized the love that Jesus Christ has for each of us. Now, I know that that this is the Church of Jesus Christ on the earth today. There is a prophet to help lead us back to live with Heavenly Father again. The Book of Mormon is the words of prophets to help us in our lives. We can find answers to all of our questions when we read it with a desire to know. This is a church that is different than any others. There is a special feeling when you walk into our church buildings. It is a spirit of peace that you will not find anywhere else. If you want to know this feeling for yourself, talk to our missionaries! They want to help everyone come to find this peace.

How I live my faith

I used to think that living the right way was SO HARD. But now, I love to do as much as I can to help people. I especially like to help the missionaries in my area. They helped me come back to church, so I help them teach other people the things that I know. I also attend all of my church meetings to learn even more. I love going to seminary to learn about the Book of Mormon. I help my family every week have family home evening. That is just a time when we can be together to do something fun as a family and learn more about the gospel. I work hard to be the best I can be. I know that God knows me, He sees all that I do, therefore I strive to act in accordance with His will to make my Father in Heaven proud of me.
