Hi I'm Kaitlin McGuire

I am from Salt Lake City, Utah. I love writing and playing music, and spending time with my family. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I have lived in Utah my whole life. I am currently studying Civil Engineering at university and I absolutely love it. Someday I want to become a licensed architect, and design buildings and anything else that may come up. I have a very deep love of music. I play guitar, ukulele, piano and the organ, and i also immensely enjoy singing. I like to write songs that reflect my feelings and beliefs. I also love to do anything outdoors with my family. We all love to fish and camp and just spend time together. The hours I get to spend with them are the most precious to me above anything else and I am so grateful that families are forever.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this gospel, and my family has been members for many generations. Seeing the faith and strength that my ancestors have had in living in accordance with the teachings of the Church has strengthened my own testimony. Along with many different experiences I have felt in my heart the truth that lies here. I know that Jesus Christ atoned for my sins, and he has felt all the pains, sorrows, and even joys of my life. He knows who I am and how he can help me in each and every moment. I know he hears my prayers and is so filled with joy when I do what I know to be right. I also know that Joseph Smith is a prophet of God. He was the vessel through which the Lord restored the true gospel of Christ to this earth. I know all these things and much more and I am eternally grateful for this.

How I live my faith

I try as much as possible to help with anything I can in my local congregation. I often help teach others how to do family history work, but I also enjoy the little things like helping lead the hymns we sing in meetings or at activities. Currently I am preparing to serve an 18 month mission to help further the knowledge of the gospel for those in the area of Belem, Brazil. It has given me the tremendous opportunity to further my own understanding of our beliefs, and strengthen my relationship with my Father in Heaven, and our Savior Jesus Christ.
