Hi I'm Catherine Sorensen

I'm a student at BYU. I am excited to serve as a full-time missionary in the England Leeds Mandarin Chinese speaking mission!

About Me

I have two wonderful parents, a younger brother, and two Westies! Growing up my family moved a lot, but I have lived most of my life in Texas and Virginia. I like to travel, sing, cycle, and hike. I love exploring with my family!

Why I am a Mormon

Even though I grew up in this church, I went through the process of gaining my own testimony, and personally decided to remain active. I'm a Mormon because I find so much joy and happiness through this gospel. I find comfort when I feel alone. I find peace when I feel sad. I have learned that we have a Heavenly Father who loves us dearly and has a plan for us. He is always there for us; we just need to turn to him in prayer and ask for help and guidance. This empowers me to live a little better and to live a little happier. His plan for us is to receive and live the Gospel of Jesus Christ. His plan is for us to have faith in His son Jesus Christ, repent, be baptized, receive the gift of the Holy Ghost, and endure to the end. Through our faith and our actions we show God our love for him. I am a Mormon because I feel Gods love more perfectly as I practice my faith. I am a Mormon because as I truly live this gospel, I smile every single day.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to be more like Christ. I strive to follow Christ's two great commandments; Love God with all your heart and love your neighbor as yourself. Because I love God, I try to keep all of His commandments, and do as He would. I love my neighbor by trying to show more compassion and to have charity towards all. I will be serving a mission in Leeds, England for 18 months and desire to share my love of Christ's restored gospel specifically to the Chinese people there.
