Hi I'm Catherine

I am a sports addict. I am an amateur photographer. I lOVE to eat pasta. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the baby of a family that would be considered small for an LDS family. They are an incredible support to me and I love them to death. We love to do marathons together and make lots of YUMMY treats. My Dad basically raised me like a boy, by teaching me football, how to grill, moving furniture, mowing the lawn, etc ; but once I went to college I think he finally realized I was actually a girl! I see a bright future ahead of me and continue everyday to better myself so I can return to my Father in Heaven.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the LDS church; however, there have been times growing-up that I have wondered if the church is true. Was there really a God? Why did I have to keep all these "rules" when others who didn't seemed to be living happy lives? Those moments of doubt caused me to relfect on my life, values, and beliefs. I studied my scriptures, prayed, and observed those around me (LDS and non-LDS). As time went by I came to a knowledge for myself that it was true. Even if my parents had allowed me to wear certain clothes or participate in certain activites I knew that I would choose not to. I would make those choices because I knew that Christ is the Savior and I want to return to him someday. Why am I a Mormon you ask? Because I know that Jesus is the Christ and the LDS church is his restored church.I am imperfect, but through the atonement he can make me whole.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following the commandments the savior has asked us to follow. An example of this is the commandment of prayer. Prayer gives me the opportunity to communicate with my Heavenly Father everyday. In return he has given me guidance in my life that is helping me develop into the person I have always wanted to be.This constant communication strengthens my testimony that he is really there watching over me. To help others receive the wonderful blessings God wants for them, I am currently serving a mission in the Nevada Las Vegas West Mission.
