Hi I'm Kaitlin

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I work in an elementary school and absolutely love working with kids. I hope someday soon to be able to begin to raise a family of my own in the gospel. For now I enjoy reading great books, watching old movies and traveling to new places. One of my favorite things is to be able to meet and share experiences with others from different cultures.

Why I am a Mormon

I was blessed to be born into a family that already were members of the church. One of the greatest things about this church though is that membership isn't just a tradition it is something that each individual person has to find out for themselves that this is the true church. I knew for myself that the church was true because of the way it made me feel when I prayed to know and was reading my scriptures. One night while reading the account of Joseph Smith's vision when he saw and heard God and Jesus Christ I knew without doubt that it was true. I knew Joseph saw what he said he saw and I knew that he was called as a true prophet of God. The gospel makes me happy and makes it easy to love those around me. It makes sense in both my heart and my mind.

How I live my faith

Living your faith is not a show. It is in the simple things like being kind to those around you and offering a helping hand. Doing what you know to be right. I try to do these things every day because I know that Heavenly Father has blessed me and hope to share his love with those around me. I know that a good example is more powerful than words. In church I have had the opportunity to work with the children and have seen how much they love and embrace the gospel even at their young age.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Even though I don't have a husband yet it is important for me to know that when I do marry it will be for all of eternity not just "till death do us part". Because I know this it changes who I date and it changes the kind of person I want to be. An eternity is a long time to be with one person so I want to be with someone that shares the same values as I do. If we have the same commitment to each other and to the promises we have made with our Heavenly Father we will receive added strength in our family and blessings to protect us. It's gives us hope in this life to know that no matter what happens we will be together again. It doesn't end at death for husband and wife or parent and child. It is through the temple that we are able to receive this blessing. Show more Show less
