Hi I'm Katie Merrill

I'm from Draper, Utah. I'm serving a mission in Virginia, Chesapeake. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I enjoy doing anything that makes me laugh or is exciting and new! Really anything outside is wonderful! I have lived most of my life in Pennsylvania and was adopted at the age of 10. 3 years after being adopted into my family we moved! I now live in Utah. I have 4 biological siblings and 2 siblings from the adoption. 4 sisters and 2 brothers. And of course my dog Ziggy is part of the family too! My plan is to attend Utah Valley University after my mission and be a dental hygienist. My favorite thing in the world though is my family and just to smile. Smiling until my cheeks hurt, kind of smiling!

Why I am a Mormon

I didn't believe in a God most of my life until I was about 17 years old. I was able to find out that this church was true. It has blessed me with the knowledge that I will always be with my family. Being a Mormon makes me truly happy and brings a purpose to my life.

How I live my faith

I will be serving my mission in the Virginia, Chesapeake mission from June 2016 - December 2017.
