Hi I'm Katie

I grew up in California, and am about to leave to serve a mission in Russia. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I just finished a year at BYU. I haven't chosen a major yet, but will probably do something with languages and diplomacy like Russian Language, International Relations, or Linguistics. I'm fluent in Spanish, speak passable French, and am learning Russian.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this is the true gospel. It's not about statistics, perks, or what you heard on social media. It's not about who cries the most when they talk about Christ or some part of the belief that lines up with the world's limited scientific view. It's not because I was raised in the church and just want to "follow the crowd." It's not because of a weird coincidence that I mislabeled as a miracle. It's not about something some human figured out by over-analyzing that one passage in the Bible. It's not because of anything from this world. I'm a Mormon because God IS real, because He IS our Heavenly Father, because he DOES have a son named Jesus Christ who died for us, and because this IS His true church restored in the latter days. The Spirit has testified this to me. It's a powerful witness that does not leave room for doubt, and anyone who sincerely prays about the truth of this Church and of the Book of Mormon can receive the same witness.

How I live my faith

I'm about to leave for a year and a half mission in Russia! I'll be spreading word of the good news of the gospel and teaching about Christ.
