Hi I'm Caitlin

I grew up in Bear Lake, Idaho. I am the middle of the seven children. I am serving a mission. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am now serving a in the West Virginia Charleston Mission and I am loving sharing he gospel with the wonderful people here. Before I left I was attending college working toward getting a degree in Mathematics Education. I love to read, go horseback riding or snowmobile, depending on the season, and I love spending time with my family and friends. I love math and helping other people understand it. I love music and love playing the piano and the flute. The Gospel has blessed my life in so many ways and I am really enjoying sharing those things with the people in West Virginia, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Kentucky. The people out here are incredible and I have been making many friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member because I know that the gospel is true. I have had many trials and many opportunities to grow from the promptings of the Holy Ghost. I was raised in the gospel and have had the blessings of the gospel in my life. I have been guided by the Holy Ghost. I know that Joseph Smith was the correct person to bring the gospel back to the Earth. I know that he saw the Father and the Son because he had the faith to ask a question and that he would be answered. I know that President Thomas S. Monson is the true and living prophet of the church today. I know that the Book of Mormon is true. I know that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world and that he went through the Atonement for me and for everyone that has ever had the opportunity to pass through mortality. I know that Heavenly Father is the only living God and that He has a plan for each one of us. I know that families can be together forever through the blessings and covenants of the temple. I know that the temple is the House of the Lord and we can leave all the worries of the world outside and feel the peacefulness in the temple. I know that Heavenly Father loves each of us and He knows each one of us individually. I know that if we keep the commandments and follow the guidance of our church leaders that we can become gods or goddesses like our Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother. I know that we have a Heavenly Mother and that she loves us just as much as our Heavenly Father loves us. I know that faith is important

How I live my faith

How I live my faith is I look for people to serve, and being myself around others without worrying about how they view me. I have become the missionary I want to be and I am enjoying serving the people in West Virginia and helping them come to know what they are supposed to be doing here on earth. I was able to be a visiting teacher to some amazing girls and through this I was able to get to know those girls and what they enjoy doing. In my home area I am able to serve others through things I see they need and see what I can do to help them in what they need.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon was written by ancient prophets that lived in the Americans and were directed by the promptings of the Holy Ghost. These prophets were prophesying of Christ and His ministery in the Americas after His resurrection as well as the latter days. When read along with the Bible the Book of Mormon reinforces the things taught in the Bible. Show more Show less
