Hi I'm Kaitlin

I play varsity soccer, a senior in high school, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a seventeen year old senior in high school. I love playing soccer, and play for the varsity squad at my school, I have since I was a freshman. I skipped third grade, and am currently in the top 25 of our senior class of 342 (or so). I have lettered in academics, and am part of the National Honor Society. I absolutely love decorating, and taking pictures. On my spare time, I enjoy being around my family and helping my mom clean. I earned my young womanhood medallion in September of 2011, and was the first young woman to do so. For my future plans, I will attend BYU-Idaho in hopes of becoming a nurse, or somewhere along those lines.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member since before I was born, so it was never really a question of, "Should I join the LDS church?" Throughout the seventeen years of my life, I have learned so many things that I cherish. Without the knowledge of Heavenly Father's plan, I feel like I would be lost, and I wouldn't really have a purpose. I know, without a doubt, that I am on this Earth for a reason. I was saved for these times, and I have a purpose. I know that other religions don't believe as much as we do, and that makes me sad. They don't know that there is a time where you can be with your family again. Granted, there is a lot to our religion, but I can't imagine life without it. I know that Heavenly Father lives, loves, and knows each one of us personally. He will listen to your prayers, and answer them through a still small voice.

How I live my faith

I live my faith everyday. High school is a scary place, believe it or not. There are so many temptations that surround me on a daily basis, and I much avoid them as best as I can. To start off the day, I attend a seminary class, which is basically a bible study group. The spirit felt there can be carried throughout my day at school and better help be avoid temptations. Currently, I am the Laurel (ages 16-18) President in the Young Women's program. As president, I have a responsibility of caring for each one of my girls and always helping them with their trials. I act as an example to them, and to all the younger girls. Knowing that I have many other girls look up to me as an example definitely helps me stay on top of things. Also, as Laurel president, I help plan mutual (youth group) activities that are both fun, and spirit filled. Whenever I am struggling, I look to pray. Heavenly Father will hear me, and He will answer through a still small voice. I know He will always be there, no matter what.
