Hi I'm Kaitlin

Born and raised in Utah. Served as a humanitarian volunteer several times in South America. Mormon Missionary.

About Me

I am a musician. I love music. I love to read. I love food. I am a total adrenaline junkie! Went to a year of school at Weber State University. I have been a humanitarian volunteer to Peru and Ecuador. I am serving an LDS mission from August 2015 to February 2017 in Guatemala Retalhuleu.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to a very young and confused girl, barely in high school. Due to certain circumstances, the government took me from her and eventually I found my family at the age of 3. We were sealed for time and eternity in the temple. I was raised by a very active Mormon family with very strong testimonies. I have two older brothers who both served LDS missions. But I wasn't sure about the gospel, and I started to become inactive. I wasn't completely sold on the surety of the church and thought I was being brain-washed by the 'bubble of Utah mormons'. I wanted to find my own way. Due to good people in my neighborhood, school, and volunteer-ships in South America, God became real to me. I realized how much happier I felt with the gospel influencing my life. I came back to the church and instantly saw blessings I had missed before. I have a personal knowledge of the truth of this gospel. I love this church. I love my God. He is mine and He is yours. He can be personalized. He will never leave you. This gospel is one of complete happiness. Nothing about the gospel can be construed as evil or wrong. The standards of the gospel helps us to lead better lives. I know this church is true. I know God loves me and He loves every single one of us as His children. I know His spirit is always with me. I know the Book of Mormon is true. Therefore, I know Joseph Smith is and was a true living prophet of God because he gave us the Book of Mormon. I know that Thomas S. Monson is the current living prophet of God and I know his words to be true. I have felt the burning inspiration brought from the Holy Ghost, who has guided me in my life. I know that God is guiding me. I am so excited to serve a mission for my God. I know Him and He knows me. I am never alone. I share these things in His holy name, amen.

How I live my faith

I have been called as an Activity Days leader (planning activities to teach gospel standards) for 8 to 10 year old girls. I play piano and sing for my church choir. I am going to serve an LDS mission for 18 months in Guatemala.
