Hi I'm Cathy

I love learning and trying new things. I love being a wife and mother! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a very big family where I had a wonderful mother and father who showed me how to love and serve by example. For as long as I can remember, I have always wanted to be a wife and mother. I have had many experiences that have helped me prepare to be the wife and mother that I am today. One of the most important things I did was to serve a mission for my church in South America . Not only did I learn to speak Spanish and see how blessed I have been my whole life, but I was able to meet so many amazing people! I love people and learning their stories so that experience was incredible for me. I have been married for over 21 years to the most amazing man on earth! (In my opinion!) We have 6 beautiful and talented children. I love to learn and try new things but of everything I have done in life (i.e. going to college, having a career, skydiving, paragliding, running marathons, skiing, deep sea fishing, four wheeling, etc.) nothing has been as exciting or fulfilling as being a wife and mother! I know that my greatest joy comes from faith and family!

Why I am a Mormon

I love being a Mormon because in this crazy world we live in, it is something steady and constant that we can hang on to. We have a prophet that is inspired by God to tell us what we need to do to be happy in life and to be prepared for the future. I am so thankful that I know that God is our Father in Heaven and that His Son, Jesus Christ, died for me so that I can be forgiven of my sins. I want to tell everyone what I know to be true so that they can be as happy as I am! I love my life and it's not because I don't have trials or heartache, we all have that. I can be happy because I know where I came from, why I am here on earth and where I am going after this life is over. I am happy and I am a Mormon because I know that within the church, they have the priesthood power that can seal my loved ones to me so that when we die, we can be reunited and live together forever! I love my family so much that I would be lost and heartsick if I didn't know that I could be with them again. I have grown and learned little by little through out my life and my faith is still growing but I do know what I know and I am so thankful to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.....or a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I love my faith! It is at the very core of who I am and what I do. I enjoy reading scriptures and church materials so that I can learn and understand how Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ want us to live and how to be happy. I believe that we can each make a difference and have an influence for good in our community and where ever we are. We can all be a light to others if we live the way that Jesus showed us....serving others, helping and loving others. My husband and I try to teach our children that there is no greater joy than serving others! We love to visit the elderly people in our area and are constantly trying to find opportunities for our family to help others.
