Hi I'm Catherine

I'm an artist, violinist, dancer, and mathematician, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a missionary of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, teaching people the gospel of Jesus Christ. I enjoy playing the violin, doodling, painting with watercolors, and dancing. My family and I can be pretty nerdy, especially when it comes to numbers, and we love playing board games and watching fun shows together. I particularly like helping other students understand math (specifically beginning calculus!). I'm pretty much guaranteed to like anything adorable or happy.

Why I am a Mormon

The love of the Savior has brought me more joy and relief than anything in this world. I have grown up with the LDS church around me, but I made the choice to join this church because I prayed about its truthfulness, and I felt the Holy Spirit witness to me that this is indeed God's church, restored to the earth. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and that it truly testifies of Jesus Christ! I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and that He has paid the price for my sins and has taken upon him all of my afflictions so that I may repent and return to Him. I can turn to Him with whatever trial I am facing. I occasionally struggle with depression, and I know that when I am in the depths of sorrow and everything seems grey, I can find true happiness in my Savior and His love for me.

How I live my faith

As I'm preparing to serve a mission, I often go out with the sister missionaries in our area to help them teach investigators about Jesus Christ and His gospel. I know that this church is true, and I want others to be able to experience the joy I have felt by being a part of it. I strive to stand as a witness of Christ at all times, in all things, and in all places by being kind to all those around me and trying to act as He would act.

Do Mormons regard the Bible as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Yes! I love the Bible, and I know it is truly came from Heavenly Father through His prophets on the earth. It testifies of Jesus Christ and works with the Book of Mormon to establish His clear doctrine. Show more Show less
