Hi I'm Caitlin

I am a young mother, wife, hair stylist, runner, espoused to a Toyota Franchise owner and you know what else? I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in a small town. I never left after my husband and I met. He was raised in the car business and owns his own Toyota dealership. I have two small children. We love living in our small town. I love to read, write, camp, ride four wheelers, travel, exercise and do hair. I received my cosmetology license in 2008 and do a little hair on the side. I am slowly working toward a primary education or secondary education degree. I mostly stay home with my two children and feel very blessed that I am able to do that in the world we are living in today.

Why I am a Mormon

I used to think that I never really got to make the decision to be a mormon or not. I tried to get away from it for a couple of years. All I can say is that I know now how important it is to be grounded in the gospel. Without it, there is nothing to lean on, nothing to get you through, and not as many opportunities to serve. I know the Savior excepts me for who I am and took all my imperfections upon himself so that I might one day live with him and my family once more. I know Joseph Smith saw the Father and the Son in the grove of trees and re-established this church in the latter days. He was a true prophet and did more for our time save Jesus only. I know Thomas S. Monson is a true prophet and still receives revelation today. I am honored to be held worthy enough to enter the temple and be sealed to my family for time and all eternity. I wouldn't have it any other way. It isn't always easy being a member of the mormon church, but He never said it would be. I can only be grateful for the life I am living and the trials that can only make me stronger.

How I live my faith

Right now I am the 2nd Counselor in the Primary Presidency, which is where the children 18 months -12 years come, in my ward. I was previously the Primary Chorister and loved every second of it. I love being in Primary and know the first place the Savior would visit would be there to see the children. There is so much joy in teaching people are still so eager to learn. I am over the cub scouts and am learning it very slowly but know that power of the program serves a huge role in the lives of our young men. I get to visit teach with a good friend and enjoy being able to get out and talk with other mothers in our ward. This is not a go to church on Sunday religion, it is a lifestyle, and one that fulfills the need to serve and the way to eternal happiness in my life.
