Hi I'm Cathie Fisher

I have 9 brothers and sister and an identical twin. I grew up in the woods of Montana and loved it. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have a teaching degree for English and Drama. I love drama, acting, and singing, but teaching English didn't work out for me and after one year, I quit. Instead I worked for 18 years as a McDonalds manager, which I loved. But last year, I gave that up so I could stay home with my five kids full time. My husband still works for McDonalds as an equipment technician. I grew up in Montana with my 9 crazy brothers and sisters. Most of my married life was spent in Jackson, WY. Now we live in Utah because my twin sister's husband died suddenly so we wanted to be close to her. The Church of Jesus Christ of LDS is everything to me and keeps me grounded.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it enriches my life and makes me want to be a better person. I feel strengthened when I attend church. It makes it easier to face my life's challenges when I know Christ is walking with me. I can feel Him. I feel uplifted and encouraged constantly by my faith. I am excited to be part of something that is rolling quickly over the earth. I see the temples going up and the huge missionary efforts and I don't want to miss out on being part of all that. The true church of Christ has been restored through Joseph Smith and it is exciting and wonderful. I am a happier person because I belong.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church and helping the with Cub Scouts. The church has a pack in our area and although we meet at the church each week, anyone is welcome. In fact, our Cubmaster isn't a member of our faith, but she does an awesome job and I love working with her. I also sing in the choir and hold special family nights each week. We read God's word together and I try to teach my children principles that will enrich their lives and help them rely on Christ's goodness. Every decision we make in our lives is a result of our faith and we pray for guidance every day so that we know we are living the life God wants us to.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Cathie Fisher
Even Mormons aren't perfect and there are a few individuals who might prefer to only help "their own kind" but this is not condoned by church doctrine and is the opposite attitude of what we are taught in our chapels. Any Mormon who doesn't participate in helping others regardless of their religious status is fooling him or herself and missing out on the blessing of service. Show more Show less
