Hi I'm Catherine Engelman

I'm from Southern California. I'm 18. I love to go to the beach and spend time with the people I love. I'm Mormon

About Me

Right now I am going to college and majoring in Special Elementary Education. I have a passion for helping children be the best they can be. I have four siblings and two neices and it has been wonderful so far

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. My parents are converts to the church. When I was young it came to a point where I needed to know for muself that the church is true and there is a God that loves me. I prayed to him and felt an overwhelming feeling of his love for me. Prayer is a very powerful tool that I use to talk to my father in heaven everyday. He is a great listener and my best friend. I feel the same love when I read the Book of Mormon and Bible. It brings tears to my eyes to know that my family will be able to be together for eternity through the gospel. I know this is true with all my heart.

How I live my faith

I try as much as possible to live my faith through my actions. Im far from perfect and so im learning and improving everyday. My favorite thing to do in my spare time is service. It makes me feel closer to my heavenly father as I do things for others because we believe we are serving god when we serve others. I have the opportunity to go to church activities often to worship the Lord. I get to serve in a position at church that the Lord has given to me that blesses me every week.
