Hi I'm Catherin

I grew up in California. I am going to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I am Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a University Student studying arts and communications. My emphasis is in illustration and music and my goal is a PhD in Anthropology. I am a young adult currently preparing to serve a mission for our Lord in South Carolina. I love culture, history, art, music, writing, reading, and love animals of all types. My family means everything to me and they're love and support are what have made me be able to reach out for incredible dreams.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I read the scriptures, listened to the Prophets speak, prayed of their truth and found those answers to be of God and His word. It is through my own prayers and reflection that I have found this church to teach the whole plan of the Lord and it is through that knowledge of the truth that I became a baptized member and servant of the Lord. I feel His love and the peace of His comfort and I know God the Father stands with me in all things and through Him I may do anything as I follow His teachings and observe His commandments.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by looking at the world around me and feeling for the Spirit to guide me to those who are in need of help. No matter their situation, I can lean on my Father in Heaven and my dear Savior Jesus Christ and count on them to help me be useful in others lives. I learn and grow under their care by making mistakes and learning from them, using the atonement, the sweet gift of our savior of forgiveness, to bring myself closer to returning to the arms of a Heavenly Father who loves me so much that He would sacrifice all that is important to Him to bring me home safely and who respects me enough to allow it to be my choice. I live my faith by choosing to live the gospel and commandment of my Lord God and showing my faith in Him by being baptized in the name of His son Jesus Christ, by attending church and participating in the lessons of His word, and striving to be worthy to make the commitments in the temple that the Lord has given us for the blessing of forever happiness.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

No, of course not. We believe in helping anyone and everyone who is in need of help. Whether that help be physical, emotional, spiritual, or just helping someone's life be less tedious by simple acts of kindness. We believe that it is through the example of Christ that we are shown the way how to live and so it is through our examples, our simple acts of kindness, that we are able to follow in His footsteps and show others how as well. Jesus did not hold His kindnesses and miracles to those who believed, He extended them even unto His enemies, and so as we strive to follow in His path by trying each at his own individual level of growth to do the same.
