Hi I'm Carrinne Cheatham

I'm from a small town in Wyoming. I love being outside. I've been called to serve in Las Vegas. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student and I love learning. I love my family and absolutely love being an auntie. I have five nieces and nephews. I love going new places and seeing all kinds of different things. Airports are one of my favorite places because I know I'm going somewhere. I love plants and growing things and I love anything that is outside, even if it's work. I actually love to work and learn how to do new things.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a member of the Church and I am very grateful to have had the gospel my whole life. I continue to follow the gospel of Jesus Christ because I know with all my heart that it is true and that doing all the things that he taught is the way to true happiness. Following the commandments that have been given will make more free than if we were to do whatever we wanted. I love this gospel and I know it is a great blessing to have a living prophet to lead us and give us counsel directly from the Lord. These are truly perilous times and Satan is a very powerful adversary. But if we follow the counsel given by the prophets and do all those little things like praying, reading our scriptures, and attending church, we will be triumphant over Satan. I hope that I can do my part in sharing this wonderful gospel with others so that it may bless their lives as much as it has mine. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

How I live my faith

I enjoy going to events put on by the school like art shows and showing support for those in my community. I really enjoy teaching lessons in church and I have had that opportunity several times being home and I've learned a lot from doing it. I have had several callings and it is fun to get to know more people through your calling. Visiting teaching at college is a lot of fun and it's a good opportunity to get to know your companion that you teach with better as well as those you get to go and teach. As you get to know those in your ward better, they become like your family. You can call on them when you need it and you can help others when you see a need. It's truly amazing.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Carrinne Cheatham
In the scriptures it tells us that everything denotes there is a God. I truly believe that we can see God in all the things around, in the flowers, the laughter of little children, the sun breaking through the clouds, a sunset, the night sky, our families. Even if we just take the human body and how all of it works, we ourselves are truly a miracle. God's hand in our lives is easy to see if we look for it. He gently leads us to do what's right if we let him, and he loves each and every one of his children. There are beautiful things throughout the world and it is a loving God that has given these things to us. I know there is a God and that he loves me. He loves you and he is there if you just take the time to look. Show more Show less
