Hi I'm Carl

I live in Idaho, and I love my family with all my heart. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I spend my time working and enjoying time with my family. In addition, I always enjoy sharing my talents in whatever church service opportunities I have. I also love the smell of sawdust, and enjoy working in my wood shop.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love Jesus Christ. In a very precious way, he is my best and truest friend. The doctrine of this church has opened my understanding of who he is, what he has done for me, and what he wants to do for me still. I have found that in trying to walk the path that he has shown, I am happy and at peace no matter what other perplexities are swirling around me. Being a Mormon has allowed me to see the Savior's ways, and have felt his spirit urging me to make sacred promises to become like him.

How I live my faith

I can feel the Lord's spirirt every day. The moments I spend on my knees each morning and night are sacred to me, and I strive to be honest and familiar with the Lord during my prayers. He has in turn blessed me with an inner peace that gives me happiness and joy even in the very real and painful trials I am facing. I love the Lord with all my heart, and have learned to trust him in all things.

Why are only some Mormons allowed into temples? Is there something secret going on in Mormon Temples? What goes on in Mormon Temples?

The Lord always reveals his truths to us his children according to our capacities to receive it. All are invited to attend, but first must prepare themselves to be ready to receive the further light available only in the Holy Temple. I love the temple. It is the place where my understanding of and relationship with Jesus Christ has truly blossomed. Show more Show less
