Hi I'm Caitie

I'm from Sacramento, CA. I study computer science and enjoy reading, writing, and dancing. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a computer science major at BYU. I enjoy reading and writing in my free time, and occasionally dancing with friends. I love learning, whether that be in a classroom or out in the world, and I am always up for an adventure.

Why I am a Mormon

I began reading the Book of Mormon while I was away at university so that I could learn more about the faith. I had no intention of joining the church, as I had spent my life up until then forming my own thoughts about the purpose of life, but I began to feel something as I read. I met a member of the church through a roommate and began to attend the institute, church, and, later, missionary discussions. I found myself living a happier life by following the commandments and principles of the Gospel, and after a year or so, was baptized in my home town. It hasn't been easy; it was a bit of a transition, and not everyone understands - but I'm very happy with my choice. I love the Gospel and I love the church, and that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I am a recent convert to the church. I enjoy learning about the Gospel and seeing it bless my life at every turn. As the only member in my family, I am beginning to research our family history so that I can extend the light of the Gospel to those I love.
