Hi I'm Catherine Brown

I'm a student at BYU-Idaho. I love to work with children and hope to teach 5th grade someday. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a full time missionary in Southern California and loving it. I was a student previously and BYU-I and I hope to teach 4th or 5th grade and take any chance I can to work with kids. I love to dance and was on a dance team in high school. I was in many choirs growing up and I miss singing to perform. I enjoy taking a break from a busy life and just making something. Whether it's baking, cooking, or crafting. A good book here and there is always a plus too! I try and spend as much time as possible outside, but that can be tough in cold rainy Washington:)

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised as a Latter Day Saint and I am very grateful for that. It was something I was always taught and knew. But I had to also learn for myself and gain my own knowledge, or my own testimony, of what I believe. My personal conversion is a recent one, and I am impressed at what a difference it has made in my life. Knowing for myself has helped me feel the Spirit in my everyday life that much more. I see the joy the gospel brings in my own life and it helps to push me to learn more and more every day. I chose to continue to live His gospel because of this joy and happiness it gives me. When I am able to turn to the Lord my burdens seems so much lighter and my worries seem to fade. Since I have chosen this gospel for myself my life has become happier and simpler, and who could ask for more?

How I live my faith

Right now I'm expressing my faith by sharing it with others. As a missionary for the church I have the opportunity to teach people this amazing gospel. I learn, as they learn. Every time I study, prepare, and teach a lesson I learn so much more. I love being able to serve those around me and help them experience the joy this gospel has brought me in my life.
