Hi I'm Catherine Routson

I am an athlete! I am an artist! I love learning and doing new things! I am a Mormon!

About Me

I love spending good quality time with family and friends. I am the 9th child of 11, and love every moment with my family. I receive physical, spiritual, and mental rejuvenation from nature, sports, and arts. I love hard work and learning. Sometimes I get very competitive, and I that is probably a huge reason that I have accomplished some of the things I have accomplished. I am studying construction management. As a girl lots of people think that is strange, but I have always designed building which I planned to build. I wish to start a business in building tree houses. I hope to travel the world learning about different cultures, architecture, and enjoying nature and surroundings in different areas. I love doing new things and feeling more accomplished. I would rather do something myself than have someone else do it for me. I love helping others. I hope to have a large family someday because from my own experience I know it is awesome, but a LOT of hard work.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon (Latter Day Saint) because I know that this gospel is true! I know because I have read, studied, and prayed about the Book of Mormon! I received my own personal answer to my prayers that the Book of Mormon is true, and I know it! I know that Joseph Smith translated through the power of God, and I know that Joseph Smith is a Prophet of God! I know that Thomas S. Monson is our Prophet on the earth today! I know that our Heavenly Father loves us, and that he created this plan so that we could return to live with him! I know that Christ atoned for our sins and suffered more than is imaginable for us so that we could repent! He is the key to the Plan of Salvation! He loves us! I know that these things are true, and I know that this gospel is true! I have see the difference that it has made in peoples lives! I want to spread the gospel because I know these things to be true! I want others to have the fullness and joy that I know comes from knowing these things! In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by applying the standards of the church to my everyday living, and not just to when I feel like following them. The gospel is my way of life! I smile.
