Hi I'm Catherine

I was born and raised in Arizona. I'll jump at any opportunity to serve. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a family of 9 kids and have worked with children for a couple years now and its amazing to see them learn and grow and develop their personalities. I absolutely love music and theater. I was in choir for 9 years and joined my schools marching band color guard for 2 years. To me, music is powerful and it has guided me throughout my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the LDS church, but I didn't always believe in it. There was a point in my life where I was at my lowest point and I didn't believe in God. I felt completely and utterly alone. The time came that I couldn't take it anymore and I dropped to my knees. I cried and prayed asking Heavenly Father if he was there. I asked for some kind of sign to reassure me that I wasn't alone. As I asked this, the primary song, A Child's Prayer came into my head. The first verse reads, Heavenly Father, are you really there? And do you hear and answer every child's prayer? At that moment, an indescribable feeling came over me and I knew that it was Him, letting me know that he was there and I wasn't alone. Since then I have regained and strengthened my testimony if Him and his church. Because of him, I have found my purpose. I want to make sure no one has to feel what I felt. I want people to know of him and the love he has for us. Its powerful and its life changing.

How I live my faith

I was a leader in my youth program, so I was able to help my other leaders plan activities and help the girls learn more about the gospel by giving lessons and being an example. As I got older, I looked for opportunities to help people, whether it be visiting some one, helping someone move, watching kids, volunteering for a church event, or anything that would help someone be at ease. Serving is my way of connecting with people and our Heavenly Father.
