Hi I'm Caitlin

I love this earth and this life. I am happy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Pennsylvania, and now I am a student attending Brigham Young University who is studying Technology Engineering Education. I am preparing to serve a mission. I love running, hiking, biking, walking, and everything outdoors. I love this earth, and I especially love the mountains. I love to read, write, draw, paint, and anything creative. I love to sing, dance, party, and have fun. I love going on adventures. I love my family more than anything, and I have been blessed with incredible friends that have supported and inspired me throughout my life. I love people, and relationships are very important to me. I love meeting new people and connecting with someone. I wish I could know every person on this earth.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that we have a Heavenly Father who loves us perfectly. I know that God reveals truth because he loves us and wants us to return to him. I know that Jesus Christ in the son of God and the redeemer of the world who lived a perfect sinless life. I know that he suffered for my sins and has felt every pain. I know that because of this atonement I am able to repent for my sins and live forever with God again. I know that Christ's church that he established left the earth after he died, but that the truth and gospel of Jesus Christ have been restored again through the latter-day prophet Joseph Smith. I know that he was a true prophet, the same as Adam, Moses and Noah. I know that God doesn't change, he is the same as he was in biblical times and he will always love and provide for us. I know that Joseph Smith saw Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and that he translated the Book of Mormon only through the power of God. I know that the Book of Mormon is God’s words through his prophets and disciples. I know that the scriptures contain all truth and we can know all things through study, prayer and the spirit. I know that the spirit of God is real, and I know this because I have experienced it for myself. I have felt the spirit with unmistakable certainty and peace, and this same spirit has showed me that that the gospel is true. This knowledge and testimony have brought me more happiness, love, comfort, joy and peace than anything else in the world, and this is why I am mormon.

How I live my faith

I live the gospel of Jesus Christ by trying to act, speak, and think as He does. I live it by loving God, loving others, and loving life. I pray to Heavenly Father and ask for Him to help me see his plan for me and to do His will. I try to inspire and build up those around me. I know that we are all God's children and that he loves every one of us the same. I pray that I will be able to see each and every one of his children how he sees them and be able to love, help and serve them. I love and live the gospel everyday, and even though I make many mistakes I continue to strive to become more like Christ everyday.
