Hi I'm Carrie
I'm a single, working girl who enjoys photography, listening to music, traveling, and spending time with my friends and family. I graduated from BYU-Idaho with a degree in Communication. I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
Why I am a Mormon
I am a Mormon because I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ and know it is true. I have found happiness and peace as I've lived the teachings of my Savior. I have found the fullness of the Gospel in the Mormon faith. I am taught that we have a living prophet on the earth today, to help lead and guide us. I've come to know where I came from before I was born, why I am here on earth, and where I am going after this life. I have read the Book of Mormon, prayed about it, and have come to know it is true.
Can you talk about the missions of the Church and your participation in them?
I had the opportunity to leave home and serve a full-time mission for the mormon church in the Chicago area for a year and half. I quit my job, put college on hold, and went out to teach others what I know to be true. It was a life changing experience for me. I met so many amazing people and grew in so many ways. I was able to go door-to-door and talk to people about our beliefs each day. I worked along side another sister missionary. We taught the basic beliefs and doctrines of our faith to those who were interested in hearing our message. We also had the opportunity to do community service on a weekly basis. Missions are hard work. But, the reason I chose to serve is because I love my Father in Heaven and I know the message I shared is true. I encourage you to locate the full-time mormon missionaries in your area and see what our church is about.
Please explain the part prayer plays in your life?
Prayer plays an important part in my life. I know I need my Heavenly Father's help. I know I can talk to Him- tell him my worries, frustrations, and my joys and successes- and He will listen. He loves me and wants to hear from me.
How I live my faith
I attend church weekly. I do my best to live what I learn. I do my best to serve others, pray and read the scriptures. Currently, I serve in my church women's organization.
