Hi I'm Carlee
I am a student studying leadership. I have been in school for a while now and just finishing up. I am going to start graduate school in the fall, I love education. I love to play the piano and guitar. Music is a wonderful outlet for me. I am single and very active in life. I love to set goals and achieve them. I love reading and learning more about the world around me. I am an avide thrift store shopper. About 75% of the clothes in my closet are from thrift stores. I enjoy creating things, from cloth flowers, to marketing material for my company, or a delicious dinner (ok, sometimes it's not too delicious). :)
Why I am a Mormon
As a Mormon my life centers around Christ. Everything I do, what I study, how I live, the goals I set for the future are all guided by His light. Being a Mormon is about being a follower of Christ, and it makes my life so peaceful. I find great happiness as a Mormon. I know who I am, I know where I came from, I know why I am here on the earth, and I know where I am going. Being a Mormon has answered so many of life's questions. I also have a standard of living that keeps me safe and allows me to be proud of who I am. I know how to dress in order to please God. I know how to speak with virtue and kindness. I've been taught how to search for things that are uplifting and good. I find strength in being honest and having integrity. I feel confident with my thoughts and actions as I follow Christ's teachings. The main reason I am Mormon is because it's true. Christ leads this church. He has restored His Gospel to the earth for the happiness of me and everyone.
How can we develop greater harmony in our homes?
I am a single girl in my twenties and I live with 2 roommates. It is not the typical "home" with a mom and dad, but we find ways to invited the Lord into our lives. The best way we do this is by praying together as roommates at the end of each day. It gives us a chance to talk about our day, laugh, and draw closer to each other and the Lord. It's great preparation for the day when we will have families of our own.
How I live my faith
Everyday I prepare myself with scripture study and prayer, and then I go out into the world and find ways to serve other people. My perfect example is Christ, and I try to find ways to be like He is, and live like He lived. I find ways to use kind language, not harsh or vulgar. I am honest with all people. I look for ways that I can love and lift. I obey the laws and care about my country and community. I seek out education and truth from school and the best books. I love the commandments of the Lord and find ways to keep them more fully each day. I make mistakes - a lot of them - and I am not perfect, but I can always repent and do better each day. I fee like I am just a normal, everyday person out to share Christ's light with others.
