Hi I'm Kaitlin

I'm an artist, a listener and a lover of people and their stories.. and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Kaitlin and I am an international studies student at BYU-Idaho. I hope someday to travel and teach people in other countries how to take care of their land and water so that it can take care of them. I taught people about Jesus Christ for 18 months as a missionary in the New Mexico/Four Corners area of the United States. I have fallen deeply in love with missionary work and the people of the New Mexico Farmington area. It has been and continues to be the greatest blessing of my life. I love spending time with my family and friends. I also love children, meeting new people, teaching, listening, painting, doing anything outdoors, camping, culture, cooking, being involved in the Church, learning about the world, baking cookies, writing, learning, playing sports, being a leader and being a friend.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love Jesus Christ and know that this is His church. I also have a deep love for the Book of Mormon and know that it is from God; it always brings me closer to the Savior and it helps me to know what God really expects of me. I feel so near to Him as I read it. The blessings that came to me as a missionary continue to come. I was blessed to see first-hand how people experienced the power of the Book of Mormon in their lives as they came to understand Heavenly Father's plan for them and know that the sacrifice Jesus Christ made for them is real. Many changed their lives completely and found what they had always been looking for. Some acted on this knowledge and chose to follow the example of Jesus Christ and be baptized. I know that that is what Christ wants for each of us. He showed us the only way to return and that is through being baptized and through faithfully living those promises that we make. It is the only way to eternal joy and eternal families and eternal life. I testify with all my soul that He lives. I have never been more sure of anything. You will be able to find this for yourself as you prayerfully read and study the words of Jesus Christ and His prophets in the Book of Mormon. It will change you. You will be able to experience all the blessings that Heavenly Father has for you as you follow Christ's example. I love being a Mormon because it means that I have chosen to follow Jesus Christ forever. I want to always live worthy to represent Him. (Mosiah 5:7-8 the Book of Mormon)

How I live my faith

Right now I'm a student in a singles ward at BYU-Idaho. I love teaching but enjoy serving anywhere. I love to share the gospel of Jesus Christ and my testimony with people and I love to listen. I also love attending institute in my area. I feel closer to my Heavenly Father serving in any capacity Church, school, home or community.
