Hi I'm Caitlan Hansen

I grew up in San Diego. I am a student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I really enjoy playing soccer and just being outside. If someone is going for a hike or needs an extra player for their team I'm there. I absolutely love my hubby and spending time with him. Right now I am a student trying to get my Bachelor's degree in Outdoor Recreation Management. One day I want to run my own after school program or soccer club.

Why I am a Mormon

For me it's simple. I'm a mormon because it makes me happy. Being a mormon in no way is an easy thing, but it is very rewarding. I grew up a mormon and so I have always known what mormon standards were and how I was supposed to live. I think I have always known The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is Heavenly Father's true church here on earth, but at points I wanted to believe it wasn't true because it would have been easier. Whenever I tried to be lazy and/or believe the church wasn't true I would start to become really depressed. The gospel is so simple and yet requires so much work out of it's members that I can easily get overwhelmed. However, the blessings that I continuously receive always make all of the work I put forth worth it. I have been so blessed in many different ways and honestly I think Heavenly Father spoils me because I don't think I deserve half of the things he has given me. He has blessed me with amazing friends, a good education, a great family, a loving and supportive husband who I will one day have children with to make a family of our own and so much more.

How I live my faith

I try to be an example to others by doing service and visiting with other people. I'm not an "official" missionary of our church with a name tag, but I am a missionary in the fact that I still teach people about our church and try to serve people as much as I can. I love talking to people and trying to share what I believe by example even if that means giving someone a simple smile. I believe a smile can do wonders and help cheer up anyones day.
