Hi I'm Catie

I'm an optimistic, happy and energetic student who loves life and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student with a love of learning. I enjoy studying new concepts and developing an understanding of the world around me. I love making new friends and surrounding myself with happiness. I find my greatest joy in relationships with others. I love to run. It gives me an increased sense of fulfillment and happiness in life. My family and friends make my world amazing. I love people.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in an LDS home. Throughout my life I was taught principles of the gospel and ways to live my life to the fullest. Everyone reaches a point in their life where they must set all outside influences aside and decide what they really believe. This was a process that took place throughout my teenage years and on into my early twenties. When I was 21 years old I had the chance to serve a full-time mission for the church. That experience was one of the most mentally challenging tasks of my life. I felt like I was going through the fiery furnace. There was a man I taught while serving who declared that he saw a light in members of the church. He saw a peace and happiness that he longed for. That statement hit me to the core. All this time I was searching for something that was already inside of me. I just needed the perspective to recognize it. I love the happiness and joy I feel knowing what I know.

How I live my faith

I have the great blessing of attending a student singles ward. I have made lifelong friends who share my values and strengthen my faith. I currently have the opportunity to teach sunday school. I love interacting with others in my ward as we discuss the scriptures and share personal experiences. My favorite weekday activity is attending classes at the LDS institute of religion near my school. This gives me even more opportunities to interact with my peers and discuss gospel topics and how they apply to my life and situation now.
