Hi I'm Catherine.

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 I am a college student studying English. I love spending time with my family and being outside. Spending time with my family outside is best of all. Together, we like to go camping, skiing, and biking.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a Mormon home, and I always enjoyed my association with church and had simple faith in what I learned there and at home. When I was in high school, I started wondering if I believed the gospel because I really believed or because my family did. I saw lots of people around me living different lifestyles than me, and I wanted to be sure that I knew why I did what I did. I prayed a lot, talked to friends and family, read the scriptures, and wrote my feelings down. While I can remember specific experiences that confirmed the truth of the gospel, I realized that the restored gospel of Jesus Christ had consistently brought light and happiness into my life. It made my home a better place and me a better person. It made my relationships more meaningful. It added richness to routine. Now, years later, I can see even more clearly the consistency of the gospel and of my happiness when I'm living the gospel. Jesus Christ has been a pillar when everything else has seemed to crumble. I know that He loves me I know that He loves all of God's children.

How I live my faith

I love meeting with fellow disciples of Christ every week. I love belonging to a community of people who are all committed to serving God and each other, who are all striving to become better, who want to improve the spheres where they live. I teach a class for the women in my church, and the hour we spend each Sunday sharing our thoughts, feelings, struggles, and successes is sacred to me. Being at college and away from my family, my church group has become my family. I know there are people looking out for me who notice when I'm gone and if I'm having a bad day. That is incredibly comforting.
