Hi I'm Kaitlyn Tobin

I am from California. I am preparing to serve as a missionary in the Utah Salt Lake City East Mission. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I currently live in California. I am the youngest of five siblings. I am the only one of my siblings who will serve a mission. I am currently preparing to serve a mission in the Utah Salt Lake City East Mission. I love to sing and bake. When I return from my mission I will attend BYU-I. I aspire to become a Nurse.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe in the Plan of Happiness. This Plan centers around the family and becoming an eternal family. The only way to do that is through the Priesthood, and the saving ordinances of the temple. When I serve my mission, I hope to share that baptism is the gateway to the journey of going to the temple. One of my favorite experiences of preparing for my mission has been the opportunity to go to the temple first for myself, and then for many members of my family that have passed to the other side of the veil. One day, I will be sealed in the temple, and I will raise my children to understand the peace, love, and beauty that comes from attending the temple. I have a testimony that our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love us so much, that they want each of their children to be with them again. We can learn everything we need to know through the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scripture. I am grateful to have a living prophet that leads and guides our church today. It testifies to me that our Father in Heaven will never leave us alone, or without His guidance.

How I live my faith

I enjoy doing Family History and preparing family names to take to the temple, it is fun to do their work and get to know them through the stories and pictures that I find. I am a ward missionary here at home, which has helped me get ready for my journey in the Salt Lake City East mission, I also enjoy visiting teaching with my mom. I am looking forward to serving as a missionary because I want others to feel the happiness that the gospel brings, and feel the love of the Savior.
