Hi I'm Caitlin

I'm a student, a pianist, a daughter, a sister, and a friend. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the second of five children. I love to play the piano and to sing. I love to read fiction novels. I attend Brigham Young University- Idaho and am loving it! I've been a member all my life and have seen how the gospel has affected those in my life and myself. I am currently serving in the North Dakota Bismarck Mission! I love being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ Latter-day Saints!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the faith and have stayed active ever since. I have prayed about the church and have felt the truth of this gospel. I love to go to church. I am happy when I live righteously and do what is right. I know that my Heavenly Father loves me. I know that this church is true. I have felt the influence it has had in my life and am grateful for it. As I have served my mission, I have come to know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true. This gospel can and will help anyone with any problem or question if only one will allow it too. Christ cannot force anyone to accept Him. I have accepted Him in my life and I am working on excepting Him more fully. Each day, as I try harder, I feel Heavenly Father's love more me and His influence in my life. I know that as I do as He as asked, then I will be able to return to live with Him again after this mortal life is finished. I am a Mormon because I know with all of my heart and mind that it is true and that I will be able to find happiness for eternity with my family. I know that my Heavenly Father is there for me and you at every point and in every moment of our lives. I try to live my life to make Him proud. I know the Joseph Smith truly a prophet of God and that through him, Jesus Christ restored His church again on the earth. The Book of Mormon is true and another testament of Jesus Christ. And that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I have served as all three of my class presidencies in the Young Women program. I try to follow the standards that are set for us by our leaders the best that I can. I love to serve others and see how a little help can brighten someone's day. I find it not very hard to live my faith when I have done so my whole life. However, it is getting harder as the world changes. I do my absolute best to follow the teachings of the prophet of the Lord. I am grateful that I am able to repent and be able to start anew each and ever week. Going to church every Sunday, as well as studying the scriptures and praying every day, helps more than I can express.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Knowing our Father in Heaven will bring so much joy and purpose to life. You can come to know for yourself that you have a Father in Heaven by praying to Him and reading His words from the scriptures (the Holy Bible and The Book of Mormon) and the words of His living leaders today. Pay attention to your feelings as you read and follow God's commandments. He will tell you through the Holy Ghost that He lives and loves you. Show more Show less
