Hi I'm Cathy

I've lived in Arizona my whole unfinished life, I want to go into Cartoon Animations for Disney, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like to draw, and sing. I'm a social butterfly, but only hand with those I feel most comfortable around. I like to write stories and cartoonanize my stories; I want to become a cartoon animationist for Disney land when I am done with my schooling.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a mormon, raised a mormon, always been "the mormon" in all of my classes since I always liked to present myself as that. However, I never had a real testimony until I was around fourteen years old. my whole life, while being told the gospel, I had my doubts about my religion, and often wondered if Joseph Smith wasn't just a very good lier and that the pres. of the church were liers too. However when I was fourteen I was reading in the Book of Mormon, Alma the younger Chapter 32:21 - "And now as I said concerning faith-faith is not to have a perfect knowledge of things; therefore if ye have faith ye hope for things which are not seen which are true." I had read this and the thought came to my mind...why is it, in everyone's culture, that religion seemed to be the most imprtant topic next to politics and other such stuff. You don't see anyone being killed in public for things like art or music, nor even do you see arguments that turn violent more then religion. So I decided to really try out my parent's religion, I told myself "I'm going to believe it. Until I find something that doesn't make sense and I find I don't believe it, I'll believe it." When those words came into my head and I felt sure they were sincere, I felt a calming pressence come over me. I felt like I was surrounded by golden clouds. My eyes filled with tears as I felt the holy spirit "whoop" with joy, and heard what in my mind i thought to be the lord calling my name and telling me "good job". After that I read the Book of Mormon (easier then the Bible, but still hard to get into), gained a bigger testimony of tithing, fasting, prayer, heavenly father, and most importantly...Joseph Smith and other modern day prophets. I'd like to end by saying that I love the lord, and the holy spirit is my constan companion even when I make not so good choises, that heavenly father does love everyone, and that death is not the end of this life. I say this in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I love to go to church and I love to read my scriptures. I love to talk about my religion with others. I don't to much in my community, but even a little can go a long way.
