Hi I'm Cara

I'm a wife. I'm a mom. I'm a swimmer. I'm a writer. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in South America and the Caribbean. I met my husband in the rain, and if that's not romantic, I don't know what is. Now I'm a stay-at-home mom of five kiddos, who keep me on my feet. My hubby is my best friend and he makes me laugh everyday. We're making the Midwest our home. I *love* to read and just had my first children's book accepted for publication. One of my favorite things is cuddling up with my hubby and watching a movie together. Life is crazy but good.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm never happier than when I am striving to do what is right...trying to keep the commandments, praying, reading my scriptures, going to church. Sometimes I think it isn't fair how happy I am. Life still gets hard, but having a solid testimony of the Savior helps me get through anything.

How I live my faith

I teach children music every Sunday and have decided it's the best job ever! There's nothing like hearing children sing about the Savior.

What is the Book of Mormon?

It's a record of the people who lived in North and South America and corresponds time-wise to the Bible. Makes sense that God spoke to all his children, not just the ones who lived in the Old World. One of my favorite parts was when Christ visits the Americas after he is crucified in Jerusalem and has been resurrected. He loved them and how they rejoiced to see him! Show more Show less
