Hi I'm Caterine

I grew up in Lima, Peru. I'm an Interior Design student. I'm a wife, a daughter, and a friend. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I spent my childhood days coloring, painting, reading, and running around, just being a child. I grew up in a very artistic home, but the trait of painting did not follow me when it was time to go to college. I did nonetheless find something related that I am now passionate about. I study Interior Design, and in my free time I like to find new ways to rearrange furniture, decorations, and pick out new paint colors for our home. I enjoy eating, lots! therefore I had no choice but to cook our own meals. There is no more mom and dad around, now that I'm married, but they taught me well enough to survive just fine with the meals I'm still learning to cook. My husband seems to enjoy them very much and that is what matters the most.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church along with my two older brothers, and I've seen the impact our words, actions, and care have made on our friends and family who were not raised in it. My mom was converted to the church when she was a teenager, and my father when he met my mom. As years have gone by, I've learned to appreciate the gospel more, and I've learned to appreciate myself as a Mormon and the wonderful opportunities there are to share the things I know about this gospel with others. There are trials, and there are obstacles, but there are also blessings, and happy moments that occur in this world. They will continue to happen but knowing that God is always in our side, and that we can go to him for help is so comforting.

How I live my faith

Right now I have the privilege to teach the youth on Sundays. I get reminded every time of the fun and energetic personalities each and every single one of them has. I get to learn so much from teaching them. I get to learn the importance of getting to know them one by one and how unique each one is. I get to see them be young and struggle or appreciate what they learn. And I get to hear and experience as their knowledge grows week by week. Most importantly not only do they learn from the lessons I prepare, but I am the one who gets to learn from them, and from the experience of teaching them. I assist church every Sunday with my husband, and every time there is always an opportunity to get to know someone new. I go to activities the church has: basketball games, barbecues, quilting, book reading, and more, and I have the greatest time.
