Hi I'm Caytee
I'm a mom, a wife, a nurse, and have a testimony of Jesus Christ!
I grew up in a small town in Utah as the youngest of six children. I have been happily married for almost three years now and am a new mother. I finished college a few years ago and currently work part time in the Newborn ICU as a nurse to help support my husband through college and our young family. I enjoy being active. I absolutely love volleyball and most any other sport. I also love to hike, camp, explore, and go fishing with my husband. Also, I am going to try to tackle a marathon in a few months. Yep, you can call me crazy!
Why I am a Mormon
I was born in the Mormon faith and I can honestly say that I took it for granite as a child. Then as I became older and began to make decisions on my own, I had a few questions about whether this religion was true. I began to read the Book of Mormon more carefully and study out the teachings of the prophet. One day, I took a walk to my grandfather's graveside by myself. He had passed away several years earlier but I had a great friendship with him. I decided that I would pray right then and there whether this church was truly The Church of Jesus Christ. I prayed with all earnestness and really sought for an answer that was individual for me. Not too long after, I was truly, even physically comforted. I remember vividly thinking to myself, "You have always known, Caytee." It's true. In my heart I have always known that this is the church which our Heavenly Father has set apart the truthfulness of His gospel. He sent His Son to live an die for us so that I could live again in His presence. He knew that I would lead an imperfect life, and that I would need a Savior to atone for my sins. I love Him. I need Him. I am forever grateful to Him for sending me this truth.
How I live my faith
I am open about what I believe. I don't drink alcohol, smoke or drink coffee or tea. I dress modestly. I try to read my scriptures often and go to church and the temple as often as I can. I pray. I visit those who may be in need of my service. I try to live what I preach so that when people notice that I am "different" I can show them that it is by the way I live, that I show my love to my Heavenly Father.
