Hi I'm Cathy

I grew up on a cattle ranch and I attended a small 2-room school. And yes, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a wife, the mother of 5 of terrific children, and the grandmother of 24 amazing grandchildren. I taught elementary school for 26 years and I love helping children become eager life-long readers and learners. When our family gets together, we love to play stickball and charades.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was in high school, some of my friends invited me to join them for weekly evening youth church activities. Everyone there had so much fun and they reached out to include me in their circle of friendship. From that small beginning, I began taking the missionary lessons and reading the Book of Mormon. I have gained a testimony of Jesus Christ and his mission on earth as I have read and studied from both the Bible and the Book of Mormon. I know I am a child of God and that He has a plan for me. He loves me, as He does all His children, and He wants us to return to live with Him. This knowledge makes me happy!

How I live my faith

I strive each day to treat everyone I meet with courtesy and respect. My husband and I love going to visit some of the elderly widows at church. They have become some of our dearest friends. Their happiness and joy in appreciating the little things of life are contagious and have taught me to be more thankful for the sweet things in life.
