Hi I'm Carol
I enjoy reading. I tend to like various forms of non-fiction as well as fiction. Charles Dickens is one of my favorites. I try to keep up with what books my children read so that we can discuss them. I have worked in the Cub Scout program. I have Scouts of my own as well. I enjoy volunteering my time in the community and at the local public schools. I walk for exercise and enjoy trying new restaurants with my husband when we go on dates. I like to meet new people. I have learned a lot from living in various states. Every town/city in every state has a unique culture and wonderful people!
Why I am a Mormon
My mother joined this church at the age of 18. My father became re-activated while in the Service. Both of my parents wanted their children to grow up with an understanding of God. They taught us from the Bible, the Book of Mormon and other religious writings. I feel so blessed to be a member of this church. I can't imagine how my life would have been without the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints!
How I live my faith
I was taught to ask myself, "What would Jesus have me do?" That question has helped me throughout my life and continues to help me make good choices. As I have matured in age, I have found many ways to help those around me. I have taught young children in church nursery classes and primary classes. I have found that there are many opportunities to serve those of other faiths, the community, and local public schools. Serving others helps me feel connected to the world around me. I have found satisfaction helping with humanitarian projects for local, national, and international needs. I involve my children whenever possible in service related activities. When I serve others, I recognize their individual worth.
