Hi I'm Kaitlyn

I'm a sister. I'm a missionary In Calgary Canada. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

My life is centered around my family. When I was young my father passed away and my mom was left with 3 small children to raise. She has since been remarried and now we have a very large family. I am the oldest of 7 children. I have 1 sister and 5 brothers. They are all my best friends. Call me crazy, but some of my most favorite things are cooking and cleaning! I also love to read and watch movies. But really my favorite thing to do is spend time with my family. We love to play games together and just be with each other. I am going to college right now to finish my degree in Elementary Education. Since I can remember I have always wanted to be a teacher. Both my parents are teachers and I love being around kids. I have about 3 semesters left and am excited to get done and help make a difference in others' lives.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. My parents have been active members all their lives so they have really set a great example for me. As I got older I really had to find out for myself if the teachings of the Church were true. When I moved away to go to college, I was finally on my own and I was in a great position to find out for myself if the Church was true. I always thought I had a testimony as I was growing up, but as I exercised my faith to continue to follow the teachings of the Church my life was so blessed and my testimony grew even stronger! Being a member of this Church makes me so happy and I don't want to experience life without it. I know that Christ lives! He loves me and I know I am his daughter. We are all children of God and he wants us all to be happy. I love my family and I know they are always there for me. God gave me my friends and family for a reason. This Church is true. I know that if I didn't live its teachings I would not be happy. I know that families can be together forever! We will all have the opportunity to live with God and our families in our next life if we live worthy of it. I know that Joseph Smith saw what he saw and that through him this Church was restored to the Earth. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a prophet of God today and that he receives revelation from God for us today! I am so grateful for the Atonment of Chirst. I know he took upon himself the sins and pains of the world so that through him we can be clean and be forgiven of our sins. I know this Church is true!

How I live my faith

I am currently a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Siants. I am doing all I can to share this gospel with the people I come in contact with. I have been called to serve in the Calgary Canada Mission. I didn't always want to serve a mission, but a few events occured in my life that made me rethink my decision. I am grateful for this opportunity to serve my mission and for all the blessings it brings into my life. Before I came on my mission I was a Visiting Teacher. It really was just talking to good friends and sharing gospel messages with them. It was a great opportunity for me to get to know new people and make good friends.
