Hi I'm Catherine
I was born in Logan, Utah. Served an LDS mission in Italy. I love all things Italian...especially the people! I'm a wife to Kris, and we have three great children, one of whom is currently serving a mission. I'm a college graduate with a degree in secondary education with an emphasis on Family and Consumer Sciences, Computer Science and Math. We lived in Texas for 16 wonderful years. I love digital scrapbooking to preserve memories for my family. I enjoy reading, bike riding and spending time with family and friends. I currently teach 7th grade math.
Why I am a Mormon
I was born into an LDS family however, as I grew up in the church, I developed my own faith and testimony in the gospel of Jesus Christ. As I strive to be obedient, my testimony is strengthened. I know that Jesus Christ is our elder brother who atoned for our sins. I know that we are led by a true prophet of God today his name is Thomas S. Monson. I know that the Book of Mormon is true. I've read it many times and have prayed about it's truthfulness. I've received a confirmation of it's truthfulness as I pray and live the teachings in this great book. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet and through him the church was restored. I'm grateful to have the gospel in my life and to know that Heavenly Father has a plan for me and my family. Families are eternal.
Why do Mormons go on missions?
I went on a mission because I wanted to share with others the joy that comes from knowing truth.
How can your talents and gifts bless others?
I'm a friendly and happy person. I think those are gifts with which I've been blessed. I can make sure that I share a friendly smile with everyone. I can offer a listening ear and make efforts to help others have a brighter day after having spent time with me. *Ü*
How I live my faith
I have a leadership position in the women's organization in our church. I have responsibility over teaching and Sunday lessons. I enjoy working with the ladies in our church, serving with them and getting to know them better.
