Compete with yourself, not others. Strive to be better than you were yesterday. Stop comparing and start growing.
Hi, My name is Cathryn Murray. I recently landed in my birth place of Eugene, Oregon. I used to live in the San Francisco Bay Area and did plus size modeling. I've always been very computer savvy and intelligent. As a teen, I founded and managed, "Global Teen Club International"; an international organization comprised of ethnically diverse and socially aware teenagers. The program produced a monthly 'zine by and for young people. And a few years ago, she was selected as a "Noxzema Extraordinary Teen" and flown to New York City for the gala awards ceremony.
I have appeared in Teen Magazine, Sassy Magazine, Working Women Magazine, Diablo Magazine, Fast Cash for Kids book (nationally published and still available in bookstores), No More Frogs to Kiss (still available in bookstores nation wide) by Joline Godfrey, and countless other zines and newspapers around the world.
After receiving numerous awards for being a "GrassRoots Ambassador," I still remained active in my community. It is very important to be active in the community. I started a youth mentorship program, have participated in the fight against AIDS and have encouraged young people to get involved in their communities.
FINDING GOD AND FAITH...
Right now, I just want to concentrate on being a better Christian and serving the lord by helpings others, especially young women. I have come along way and I am so glad that GOD continues to show his strength and love by allowing me to live and be the person that I am today. I have made mistakes, and will continue to make mistakes, but with GODs love I can correct my mistakes and continue down the path of being a Positive and Loving Christian.
I was a sinner..
I'm not a good person. I think bad thoughts and sometime do them... I'm not alone, the Bible says, “For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23)." That means if you have any sin in your life, you are going to hell. But here is the great news! The Bible says in Romans 6:23 that "The wages of sin is death (Hell), BUT :) the gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus(Romans 6:23)! You see God demonstrated love for us that while we were sinners Christ died for us (Romans 5:8). He died for US! For you and for me so that we could be offered a new life free from the law of sin and death.
