Hi I'm Kaitlin

I grew up in American Fork Utah. I am the youngest of three kids. I am a Mormon

About Me

I was born in Provo Utah and am the youngest of three kids. I am currently going to college, and am a psychology major. I love to be active and enjoy all different types of sports, but my favorite is swimming. I have a passion for music, enjoy being around other people, and love to try new things.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member my whole life. However, until a few years ago I was just going through the motions of being a Mormon, and did not have my own testimony. I realized that my testimony was just borrowed from my parents and that in order to know the truthfulness of these things for myself I would have to put it to the test. And that is exactly what I did. I wanted to know if there was a God, and if this was the true church. So I took the leap of faith and I prayed to know. The feeling that over came me was one from a God that loved me intimately, and knew me perfectly. I know that there is a God who hears my prayers, watches over me, and loves me more than I can comprehend. I know that Jesus Christ died for me, and that because of him I no longer have to live in sin, but continue to progress. I know that I am a daughter of a God, and because of this I will strive to keep his commandments. I am so grateful for this gospel. It brings me peace, understanding, and knowledge in times of sorrow. I would not be the person that I am today if I did not have this gospel in my life. I know these things are true, and I say them humbly in the name of my savior and redeemer Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

About two years ago I helped organize a youth camp for my stake known as AFY which stands for American Fork youth. This camp lasted only three days, but was a testimony builder for all who participated in it. I greatly enjoyed organizing this event and am grateful that because of the efforts I put in, others were able to grow closer to their Heavenly Father. Furthermore, this last December I was called to be a gospel principals teacher for my homeward. In this calling I was able to teach members of my community principals of the gospel such as tithing, fasting, and so much more. I was grateful for this opportunity not only because I was able to share things that are near and dear to my heart to help strengthen others, but also because as I prepared to teach others, my own testimony of what I was teaching was strengthened.
