Hi I'm Kaitlin
I love food, my family, the sunshine, and Harry Potter :) I am a Mormon.
Hi there! I am currently serving a mission for the Lord in Cleveland, Ohio. It is the best thing in the entire world! I was born and raised in the beautiful state of Oregon, and went on to college in Utah after high school. I like to run, and I ran cross country and track in high school, and was on the cross country ski team one year. My brothers are my heroes, and I spent my childhood playing baseball with them in the backyard, pretending to be as cool as they were. My mom is my best friend, and my dad gives the best advice ever. Basically, my family means the world to me.
Because it's true. Really, it is! When I say true, I mean entirely right, complete, whole. I understand that is a bold statement, but the reason I am able to say that with complete confidence is because I've asked the ultimate source of truth -- God, our Heavenly Father. He has answered my sincere prayers over and over again that this is His church here on the earth. I also know that because I've read the Book of Mormon, and as I've done so I've been able to feel peace, joy and love. Sometimes we call that feeling the Holy Ghost, or the Spirit. It is through the Spirit that we can know the truth of all things, and through the Spirit you can know the truth of this message, too!
I live my faith by doing my best every day to be like Christ. At our church meetings, we have something called the Sacrament. It is when bread and water are passed to the congregation in remembrance of the Lord, Jesus Christ. When we partake of that sacrament we covenant -- or promise -- to take the name of Christ upon us. That means we promise to treat people like Christ would if He were here. It makes me think of this scripture, written by a prophet at the end of the Book of Mormon: "Yea, come unto Christ, and be perfected in him, and deny yourselves of all ungodliness; and if ye shall deny yourselves of all ungodliness, and love God with all your might, mind and strength, then is his grace sufficient for you, that by his grace ye may be perfect in Christ..."
