Hi I'm Catania
Just another happy Mormon.
I am a very fortunate stay-at-home-mom. I love laughing, writing, studying, reading, painting, crocheting, and...you get the idea. I have way too many hobbies and duties without enough time to get it all in! I love being creative.
I was fortunate to be raised a Mormon. My father is not Mormon and my mother is. Unfortunately, they were divorced when I was young, but my siblings and I still experienced a positive situation - as both of my parents were active parts of our lives. Despite the way that my parent's divorce was handled which, I promise, was as positive as possible, there were times that I felt alone and confused. I learned that I could find comfort and peace in my relationship with Heavenly Father - even when my family situation seemed unsure. Throughout my life, the gospel has been a stabilizing factor. I've been guided, directed, comforted, helped, and blessed in more ways than I can even think. I know that my Heavenly Father loves me. I've known this for many years, yet the impact of the fact - that my Heavenly Father loves me - hasn't dampened over time. Knowing that I have a Father in Heaven that loves me brings me so much peace.
I really try to live my faith every minute of every day. As a woman, I'm a member of the Relief Society - which is an organization for women over the age of 18. I visit teach a few women. We call each other sisters, and I am also taught by other women. I love the feeling of sisterhood that exists with the women I meet. I try to live my faith by being true to it daily. I am a mother and a wife. I try to teach my children the principles of the gospel - principles that have influenced the way I live - principles I believe to be good and true. I try to read my scriptures and pray daily. I also try to live my faith by being authentic to myself while still improving. I know that God love me, individually. He wants me to increase my talents. He has blessed each of us with ability and desire. When I do my best to be a better woman, I find that I'm happier. This encourages me to be more faithful and obedient. I'm far from perfect, but that's what's great about the gospel, it helps me with my shortcomings. The Lord doesn't require perfection, he only requires what we can give, and He, through His atoning sacrifice makes up the difference.
