Hi I'm Caitlin

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student studying Spanish. I love travelling, playing sports, reading and spending time with family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I come from a Mormon family and grew up going to church each week. However, as I grew older, I realized that I needed to decide for myself if I really believed that the things I learned in church were true. I have found that when I keep the commandments and try to treat others as Christ would, I am much happier. That doesn't mean that I don't have really hard days or challenges to overcome, because I do, but as I strive to live the standards of the gospel of Jesus Christ, I am so much happier. I know my life has purpose and it is still possible to find joy and peace despite the challenges of today's world.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to treat others like Jesus Christ would. In the church we often accept assignments to give of our time and help others who may be struggling.

What are Mormon church services like? Are visitors allowed at church meetings? Can I attend church?

Mormon Church services are three hours long and are held each Sunday. Each hour is divided into a separate meeting. The most important is called sacrament meeting, where we partake of the sacrament drink the water and eat the bread as we remember the atonement of Jesus Christ. We also listen to different speakers from the congregation talk about various gospel principles. We also attend Sunday School and other classes during church where we study the scriptures and learn how to be better people. Visitors are always welcome to attend church meetings. Many members of the congregation bring their family members and friends of other faiths who are interested in learning more about the Church. Children are also always welcome to attend.
