Hi I'm Caitlin

I'm from the United States. I'm serving a full time mission in Bacolod Philippines. I love life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to play sports and spend time outdoors! My favorite activities are soccer, hiking, biking, and camping. I love to spend time with my friends and family. I love traveling and I have been to 7 countries. I also love art history and drawing. And if I'm not doing any of that I'm probably reading! I like learning about new people and new ways of life. I'm always open for new experiences and I love when people teach me new things about the world!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it is the only thing I have found in life that brings true peace, comfort, and HAPPINESS! I feel my Savior Jesus Christ's love for me in all things. I know that I can turn to Christ in every aspect of my life and He will be there to comfort me and to help me change and grow and become better. I know the peace that comes through true repentance. I have a strong desire to be more righteous everyday because it love my Heavenly Father and I want to show him that through my faith and obedience. I am incredibly humbled by the opportunities that Heavenly Father has given to me to change my life for the better. I have a firm knowledge that reading the Book of Mormon everyday WILL change your life. It brings me so much strength. I feel so blessed every single day to have the knowledge that I have a Father in Heaven and a Savior who love me so much and who's greatest desire is to have me return to them. Heavenly Father in mindful of me and He knows me better than I know myself and that brings me so much comfort. I am so thankful for the gift of the companionship of the Holy Ghost when I am righteous. His presence helps me choose the right and effectively serve the people around me. He helps me have a clear head in stressful situations and He helps me know what to say and what to do. The church is true. We have a Heavenly Father who loves us deeply. Our Savior Jesus Christ suffered and died for us so that we could have eternal life and happiness. There is a prophet on the earth today who has the power to lead and guide the earth. His name is Russell M Nelson and he cares about all of us. Don't wait another minute of your life to be Happy. Everything you need is right here.

How I live my faith

Right now I am a full time missionary in the Philippines Bacolod mission! Before I received my mission call I was a teacher for the women's Sunday class in my ward. I love this calling because I get to know the women in my ward by serving them. I found that the best way to learn something and to strengthen your belief is to teach others about it! I also took classes at the institute of religion in my town and sang with the institute choir. I LOVE indexing, which is helping with family history work by typing up handwritten or printed documents so that people can have an easier time finding their ancestors! It is very fun and easy. I love to help with kids and to spend time with the people around me and to help them know that they are loved and cared for. I strive to be more kind, more selfless, more obedient, and more like Christ everyday! I read my scriptures everyday and it brings incredible peace and joy into my life.
