Hi I'm Kaitlin,

I am a missionary. I am a high school graduate. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

In high school I was on many sports teams. I swam, played volleyball, and competed in shot and discus in track and field. I also was a part of a club called Best Buddies. Which is basically a club where you are paired with a friend who had special needs and you become friends with them and go to activities with them. My senior year I moved and had to go to a new high school and basically start over. It was a new experience but in the end I made friendships that will last a lifetime.

Why I am a Mormon

Many of my friends in high school would ask me, "Why are you Mormon? ". Every time people would ask me that I would take a second and reflect on that answer. The truth is I am Mormon because I have a testimony of the Book of Mormon, of Jesus Christ, of the Prophet, and of Joseph Smith. I have had experiences where I have gone to God in prayer asking for answers and he has answered me. God has give me trials and experiences to help me gain a testimony of the church. I am Mormon because I have faith. It wasn't a single moment that gave me a testimony but a series of personal experiences that helped me gain a testimony of the Church of the Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

How I live my faith

Faith is something that needs to be nurtured and grown. If you do not take care of it, you start to question and lose faith. How I live my faith is simple, I act in faith. Acting in faith can be simple things like praying, read the scriptures, going to church activities, or going to the temple. Or it can things that sometime seem a little harder like inviting friends to church events, giving them Book of Mormons, or just simply following the promptings of the Holy Ghost. Either way I try to live by acting in my faith.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Kaitlin,
The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. It was written by ancient prophets and its purpose is to be another witness of Jesus Christ with the Bible, NOT to replace the Bible. It is called the Book of Mormon because Mormon was one of the ancient prophets who wrote in it and it was named after him. One of the last scriptures in the Book of Mormon is Moroni 10:4 which promises you that if you read the Book of Mormon and sincerely pray about it you will learn by the Holy Ghost that it is true.
