Hi I'm Catrina Bauer

I'm a Massage Therapist, I love horseback riding, my favorite movie is the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and I'm a Mormon =)

About Me

I am currently on a Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I was previously a competative Hunter Jumper Equestrain horseback rider. I am a Licensed Massage Therapist. I love animals and nature. I love to hike, and I love to wakeboard.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up Mormon, but fell away from the church when I was 15. I was inactive for about 7 years of my life. When I was 22 I had the chance to see my brother leave for a mission and later got to see him on his mission and be taught by him. At that point I realized what I wanted for my future and for my future family. I wanted to be happy like my brother, I wanted to be with my family forever, and I wanted to be close to my Heavenly Father. When I was 23 I finally decided to go back to church and find out for myself if this church was the true church. I met with the Sister Missionaries and they taught me all about the church and Christs gospel. After much reading of The Book of Mormon and praying to my Heavenly Father, I found out for myself that this church is the true church and that it is the same church Jesus Christ established during his Earthly Ministry. I want people to receive the blessings and happiness I get from living Christs gospel, which is why I'm on a mission to serve the Lord and help people come unto Christ.

How I live my faith

I am currently dedicating 18 months of my life to serve the Lord and his church by teaching people about the gospel and how it can change their lives.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Catrina Bauer
The Book of Mormon is another Testament of Jesus Christ. In John, Christ speaks of "other sheep" he must teach, this book is a record of those other sheep. They are records of the ancient prophets in the Americas. This book puts forth the doctrines of the gospel, outlines the plan of salvation, and tells men what they must do to gain peace in this life and eternal salvation in the life to come. I know this book combined with the Bible, it can do those things, because it has in my life. Since I've come back to church and reading from the Book of Mormon, it has brought so much peace to my life. I know it is the word of God. Show more Show less
