Hi I'm Catherine

I'm a farm girl, a college graduate, a cow enthusiast, a musician and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a large family and loved it. We didn't always get along, but now I wouldn't have it any other way. We lived in a small farming town, and this is where I fell in love with agriculture. I milked cows for the neighbor, and decided that's what I want to do for the rest of my life. While I was in college I had a small hobby farm that included; ducks, chickens, goats, horses and llamas. I love animals and especially cows. I also love to bake, cook, play the piano, do crafts and read. I'm not a world traveler, but I do love to see other places and the beauty that is found in nature.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the LDS church, but had to gain my own testimony just like anyone else. It came slowly as I prayed, read the scriptures and went to church, and now I cannot deny it. I know this chruch is true, and that Joseph Smith saw God the Father and His Son when he prayed. This church is truly lead by prophets of God. The Gospel brings peace to my life and helps make sense of what goes on in the world. I know I can be with my family again and live with them forever. I know I am a daughter of God who loves me, and I love him. I don't know where I would be without the Gospel. I am thankful every day that I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Living my faith is part of my everyday life. It's not just something to do on Sunday, it's something I do every day of the week. I need direction in my life, and I get that through prayer. When I feel lonely, I know that God loves me because I am one of His daughters. When I need a question answered I can find it in the scriptures, especially the Book of Mormon. Living my faith has given me many chances to learn and grow. I had the opportunity to plan weekly activities for the 200 people in my congregation. I loved being involved and volunteering my time that way. I also made some very dear friends as a visiting teacher. That allowed me to get to know women who lived by me and serve them and love them. I wouldn't change that experience for the world. Living my faith is how I get through the day.
