Hi I'm Caitlin

I grew up in Texas. I'm happy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am finishing up my college degree. I love hiking, reading, blogging, taking pictures, dancing in the rain, and playing with my friends. :) I am a joyful person. I went on a study abroad to Vienna a few years ago and it was amazing. I have a wonderful family and amazing friends. My father has been dealing with brain cancer for the last 15 months and passed away in June of 2012. I'm so thankful that families are together forever.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because nothing else makes sense to me. The gospel resounds in every part of my soul and my being and I can't imagine living in any other way. It is simple to understand if one has faith and asks with a sincere heart. After serious study and reflection, I have realized that I know that the Church is true and that living the gospel makes me happy like nothing else can.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in my daily life by being a good example. I make sure to live the way that I'm taught because I know that that is the only way to gain true happiness. I want everyone to find joy in their lives.

What are Mormon Temples used for?

Mormon temples are used for worship, instruction, and the betterment of our members. There are sacred ordinances that are performed there, and, through the temple, families can be together for eternity. I am so grateful for the fact that my family has been sealed together in the temple so that we can be together always. Going to the temple is a special, sacred experience for me because I am able to feel peace and love as well as answers to questions that I have. Show more Show less

What is the Law of Chastity?

The Law of Chastity is basically a principle of cleanliness, morality, and worthiness. We keep ourselves morally clean because it helps us to live better lives. We believe that there should be no sexual relations outside of a husband and wife relationship. Intimacy is a sacred, special thing that unifies a marriage relationship in a way that nothing else can, and we want to save ourselves for that special person and the one that we will be with forever.
