Hi I'm Catherine

I am a Mormon

About Me

I am a Mom and Grandmother. I keep busy with 7 married children, 25 grandchildren. I work on family history, sewing, gardening. My family is my life. The teachings of Jesus Christ are my code and center. I am a work in progress.

Why I am a Mormon

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the truth. I am a truth seeker. The message of the restored Gospel of Christ taught by the church feels good in my heart and in my soul. I have been active all my life. I have taught the doctrine to my children as best I have understood and they are teaching it to their children. It has brought happiness and peace into our lives and has given direction and purpose to our every day living. It just feels so good.

How I live my faith

I have raised my children in the doctrine of the church. I help my ward with family history. My grandchildren are being raised in the doctrine of the church. Pray, scripture reading, serving others, being an active member in striving to put into practice the teachings of the Mormon Church. We are not a perfect family, but believing and hoping in christ someday we will be. We strive to be worthy of a temple recommend. I have found peace and happiness.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Catherine
You can tell it is true by the way it feels on your "feelings". Listen to your feelings, the voice in your heart, they are never wrong. Show more Show less

What are some things that tell to you there is a God?

Catherine
Earth, and how it sits in space revolving. A leaf on the tree, a bird, rain, sunshine, clouds. The seasons in a year, a new born baby. The smiles of grandchildren. But, what amazes most, that in the sea of humanity he knows me individually and knows my heart. The voice and feelings in my heart that I don't even know. He knows me so perfect, that on any given day, He knows my needs or dangers and provides a way. Show more Show less

In whom should we have faith?

Catherine
I personally have found the only center and truth is Jesus Christ. In Him all things are centered. When I put Him at the center of my life, all other people and things fell into their proper place. Jesus Christ, is Lord, Redeemer, Saviour, King and Counselor all that the scriptures teach, but personally I have found Him to be my friend. He has picked me up off the floor and restored me to functioning human being. As I have come forward in my church membership striving to put into practice the teachings of Jesus Christ, I am being healed. I have come to the truth, that I am responsible for cleaning the inner vessel the best I can, and He will fill in the cracks. Show more Show less

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

Catherine
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is under the direction of Jesus Christ. The prophet is his Chairman to be his voice. Today that person is Thomas S. Monson. The Lord needs a prophet to speak to the people. Show more Show less

Who was Joseph Smith?

Catherine
Joseph Smith was a pure person who ask God a question and received an answer, the Truth. One question lead to another, and until he had restored the Church of Jesus Christ to the earth. He searched for truth and acted upon it when he found it. I know Joseph Smith was a Prophet and did restore the truth of the Gospel of Christ to the earth. He received the Priesthood of God, to act in his name. He translated the gold plates into what is known as the Book of Mormon. Show more Show less
