Hi I'm Cathie Frost

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been blessed with a wonderful husband, four sons, a daughter-in-law, and a granddaughter. They are the most important thing in my life, other than my religion. I also enjoy cooking, photography, making crafts, watching old movies, playing piano, reading, and gardening. I love to learn new things.

Why I am a Mormon

I can't imagine raising children without the gospel. The world constantly teaches them that living a sinful life is not only acceptable but the only way to enjoy life. Our children need to have a safe place where they can come and escape from the world. We have taught our children that the only way to have true, lasting happiness is to keep the commandments. When we do this, we can have the companionship of the Spirit with us. I believe this is one of the most important tools a parent can have. There have been many times when I've had a prompting that one of my children is struggling and needs help. As I speak to them, the Spirit helps me know the right things to say that will touch their hearts. Other times, I've been warned of danger and after acting on the impressions from the Holy Ghost, a bad situation was avoided. I don't know what I would do without this divine help. The other blessing that comes from living the gospel is that there is peace in our home. We love to be together and enjoy spending time as a family going on walks, watching uplifting movies, talking, playing games, going to concerts, and reading scriptures together. We are each other's closest friends and that is a blessing I attribute to living this gospel. I am thankful for a knowledge of the loving Savior and Father in Heaven who love me and know me personally. I know this is the Savior's restored church on the earth today that is lead by a living prophet.

How I live my faith

In our church I have been asked to work with the youth. I love this opportunity. The youth are amazing. They love to have clean fun and know how to enjoy themselves without being immoral. The programs the church offers helps to provide these opportunities. There are girls and boys camps held every year where they learn not only wilderness survival skills, but also spiritual survival skills through devotionals and testimony meetings. We also have dances and service projects. Every week, the youth get together and participate in activities they have planned that are fun such as scavenger hunts, volleyball, or crafts. Other times the activities are more spiritual such as visiting nursing home or having a recognition night to celebrate the progress they've made on achieving their goals. The church has encouraged the youth to participate in goal programs that focus on developing positive qualities such as virtue, faith, and knowledge. In addition to all of this, the church also offers the youth a daily opportunity to learn more about the gospel in a program called Seminary. They study the scriptures more in depth and talk about how to apply it to their lives. Some locations hold Seminary before school, other areas have an agreement with schools and hold Seminary during school hours. My children always looked forward to going there since it gave them a chance to escape from the degrading things that they experienced during school. There is an amazing support system for our youth. As a parent and leader I've seen the difference it's made in their lives. They are able to surround themselves with good friends and leaders who are positive role models for them. This helps the youth develop a stronger relationship with the Savior.
