Hi I'm Catherine Smart

I'm a daughter, sister, cousin, and niece. I love to learn. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of four children and over twenty grandchildren and I love all of my family very much. I love to read and to make music. I recently graduated from high school and began college, and I look forward to a lifetime of learning. For the next 18 months I will be excitedly serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

I was blessed to be born to two church members and the gospel of Jesus Christ has always been a part of my life. Over the years, however, I studied the Book of Mormon and the doctrines of the gospel and prayed to know for myself. I have a firm testimony of Jesus Christ and the power of His Atonement. I know the Russel M. Nelson is God's servant here on the earth, and when we follow the First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve, we follow God. I know the Book of Mormon contains truth and brings us closer to Jesus Christ. I love the gospel and my life would be empty without it. I am so grateful to be a member of the Mormon Church.

How I live my faith

As a youth, I served in my youth group, helping to organize activities and service projects and serving as the group leader. When I went to college I participated in a group for young single adults and served in the leadership there. I love the friendships and love and support I have found in being a part of these groups and serving in them.
