Hi I'm Cathy Burkhart

I'm a Mormon. A Mother of 6 and a grandmother of 12. I work in selling cars and I love people. I am very proud of my church.

About Me

I love adventure. I hike, river raft, zip cord and sky dive. I love cooking for large family events and playing with my grandchildren. My God and my family come first iin my life. Then it's my two dogs, Chomper and Digger. My family is scattered across the states so we get to do alot of traveling. Shortly I am off to Calif for my grandchildren and then to Atlanta to visit with my mom. Who, by the way, is the greatest mom in the world.

Why I am a Mormon

I had left my Methodist church after my daughters death and was very angry at God. But I finally started to feel the loneliness of not having God in my life and I wanted to be with my daughter when my time came in heaven. I visited several churches and in some I was welcome, said to say in some ignored. I came home one evening and there was two young ladies at my house helping my daughter with her hair. We started to talk and I learned they were missionaries from the LDS church and mormon. I asked them quite a bit regarding the religion and agreed to visit the church. That Sunday when I walked into the church it was full of families with children on their laps, husband's sitting close to their wives , some with arms around them and I could feel the love and the joy in that church. I was overwhelmed with the joy I felt and after one more visit I asked to be baptized in nto the mormon religion.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by reading the Bible and the Book of Mormon, I pray everday and I talk with God when I am happy and also when I may need extra strength. I have a calling to work with the Ladies organization in the church and with home teaching. I am very humble with these callings as I am a newer member but I love to help people and enjoy sharing my faith and reading verse with those who are interested.
