Hi I'm Kaitlin

I'm a missionary in Canada, a US Marine veteran, a cyclist. But most importantly I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was a marine for four years and in that time I was not active in the LDS church. And I made some poor choices, but eventually came back to church. Not long after coming back I was praying for guidance on what I should do. I felt that I needed to get out of the military and serve The Lord full time as a missionary. I received my call in march and was called to serve 18 months in the Winnipeg Canada mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always thought of myself as good honest person, but when I'm going to church, I feel like the best person I can be. It gives me hope of a better world to come, and strength to get me through my trials. As a Marine I am often put into situations that do not follow the teachings of this church, but with the strength I get from praying and reading my scriptures I know that I can make it through anything. I have always believed in The Lord, Jesus Christ, I know that though I have made poor decisions in my past He will always be there for me in my hour of need. I know He lives. I know that He guides the leaders of this church. I believe and have faith that my prayers will be answered. I love my scriptures and my church. Most important of all I love Heavenly Father, and Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I try my best to get to church every week. With training and work it makes it hard sometimes to be able to attend. I also like to take the sister Missionaries around to meet with people and to share my experiences with them. It's been difficult living so far from my home in a place that promotes so many things that we don't do. I'll be straight with you, who ever may read this, I stopped going to church because it was easier than trying to uphold mine and the church's values. I started down a dark road that only led to pain. But then something happened, my heart changed and I'm recommitted to being a better member of the church, my community, and my family. I often have to explain why I don't drink, or smoke, but it gives me an opportunity to share my faith and beliefs.
