Hi I'm Cathy

I'm a 62 year old married woman, retired, and living in Washington State to be close to my grandkids.

About Me

I am 62, been baptised at 12 but left the Church for many years due to alcoholism. I returned to the Church after being sober many years. I married a non-member who was baptised Dec 2005 and we were sealed in the Temple in March 2007. I never lost my testimony and have always loved the Church, I left because I didn't feel worthy. I now realize Heavenly Father always loved me and it was His love and strength that gave me the power to be sober and return to the Church. My testimony is stronger than ever and we are grateful to have the Gospel in our lives every day.

Why I am a Mormon

It is the true Church, organized by Jesus Christ when He was on the earth. I believe in our living prophet and our Church leaders. No matter how far I strayed, the Church was always my one constant, my light in my life and I'm so grateful to be an active member.

How I live my faith

I visit teach, have a calling, and attend Church meetings weekly. My husband and I volunteer at the local Deseret Industries and we regularly attend the Temple.

Why are Mormons asked to donate 10% of their income to their Church?

Cathy
Most Church's ask tithe of their members. I have a very strong testimony of tithing and the blessings that come from paying a full tithe. My husband is unemployed due to the economy. When he worked, we built up our food storage as advised by our leaders and paid a full tithe. When he became unemployed, our income was cut and our expenses rose because we now have to buy our own health insurance. As a direct result of continuing to pay a full tithe, we are able to meet our bills and have food for our family. Our faith is strengthened daily by the blessings we have from obeying the law of tithing. Show more Show less
