Hi I'm Cathy

I play the Ukulele, I love to laugh, sing, and beatbox. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hey! I'm Cathy. I'm from the great state of Nevada. I'm majoring in Communication with an emphasis in Public Relations at BYU-Idaho. I love to sing and play the ukulele! I play basketball and I absolutely love it. It's a thrill to step on the court and be successful. I like to beatbox, too. Laughing is one of my favorite things to do, along with making other people laugh. It's a great feeling. I am currently serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints! I'm doing this because I want to help others find the happiness and peace that I have found from having the Gospel of Jesus Christ in my life. I can honsestly say that I would not be out here on a mission if I didn't know for myself that the things we teach are true. I love my Savior Jesus Christ and I am so grateful for what He has done for me. I know God lives and loves me.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? I don't even know where to start. Happiness takes a key role in my life, and being a Mormon is what brings me true happiness. Being Mormon gives me peace in my life, and the knowledge that I will be able to return to live with God and my family again after this life. I am able to pray to my Father in Heaven and receive answers to my prayers. I am able to receive personal revelation from Heavenly Father. Being Mormon has given me a sense of completeness that I literally cannot find anywhere else. I am so grateful to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and partake in the blessings that come from being a disciple of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I am a Family History teacher in my ward. Every Sunday, I teach a class about the purpose of Family History and the different techniques they can use to do it. We talk about its importance and the blessings that we can receive from doing it. We also talk about how doing Family History work is necessary for temple work. Going to the temple is my goal, and it is the goal for members of the Church.Temple work is made possible through Family History work.

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

The Book of Mormon and the Bible have truly blessed my life. The scriptures bring me a sense of peace, joy, and hope for my future that I have been unable to find anywhere else. I feel the Spirit when I read them, and I feel close to my Heavenly Father. The Book of Mormon and the Bible work hand-in-hand, and I know that they were written for our day and age. The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ, and I know that I am becoming more like Him and coming closer to Him through reading it. This gives me so much happiness. Show more Show less

What is being a Mormon like?

Being a Mormon, or a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, has brought me so much happiness in my life. I am so grateful to have found this sense peace and contentment. I go to church every Sunday and worship. I always look forward to Sundays. During the week, I work, go to school, and try to be the best person I can be. I pray to my Heavenly Father and study the Book of Mormon and Bible daily. This gives me a sense of peace, contentment, and hope that I literally cannot find anywhere else. My faith in Jesus Christ grows stronger through reading the scriptures and praying to my Heavenly Father. I love going to Church Dances and hanging out with my friends. Being Mormon is a lot of fun, and it brings me so much happiness! Show more Show less
