Hi I'm Cathy

I have lived and am currently living a life that I always dreamed of as a child. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 50 years old and amazed at how fast my life has flown by. I love my family which includes a wonderful husband and four children and two grandchildren. I enjoy serving and helping others. Fifteen years ago we bought a place with property. I have always wanted a horse so we have had a few free or very inexpensive ones over the years. A couple of years ago I purchased (operative word) a foxtrotter and have enjoyed riding and training my horse. I ride in the mountains with about 5 other ladies. I blew out my knee playing racquetball so I haven't ridden in 4 months and I am missing it. In April I will be healed enough to get back to it. Racquetball is another favorite recreation. I had planned on participating in a senior competition in racquetball before my knee ingury but there is always next year. In enjoy my grandchildren and I am encouraging my children to give me more! I grew up in a pretty rough environment and found the church when I was 14 and am so grateful I have been blessed and made choices that put me in the wonderful situation I am today.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe in Jesus Christ and that He has a church on the earth today. Some people are Mormon's because it is a very wholesome way of life, which is good, but the doctrine of faith, repentence, baptism, and the atonement is the foundation of my belief system. I am grateful to know that whosoever repents can be forgiven and return to our Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

Since I decided to participate fully in the church at the age of 14, I have had plenty of opportunities to serve others. I love having a ward family or congregation to worship with and to be mutually engaged in livng the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I feel like the church is an opportunity or school for becoming better. I am currently the President of the women in our congregation or Relief Society as we call it. It is a huge investment of time and energy but well worth it. I am learning and growing and serving and loving every day.
