Hi I'm Carol

I am a happily married wife, mother and grandmother. I founded 2 non profit charities. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi, I'm a wife, mother and grandmother. I love not only my children but all children. That love translated into founding 2 non-profit charities to help babies and their families. Those charities have been serving the sick and needy primarily in America, and also around the world. I also like to fly, ski, boogie board surf in the ocean, read, sew, tat, serge, quilt, embroider, network on computer, do charity work, be involved with church activities, bicycle and spend a lot of time with family. My greatest search in life is for truth. The gospel teaches us everything we want to know - about anything. If I have a question, I can find the answer in the scriptures, through prayer and in gospel doctrine. My relationship with the Savior helps me make important decisions and helps to smooth the bumps in life to a tolerable level. I have a strong testimony of the truthfulness of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and walk the talk every day, putting my love and gratitude for the Savior into action.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the decision I made to always be true to myself. I found out who I am, a daughter of God, and am faithfully loyal to the royal within me. In a confusing world, it is wonderful to be free of the turmoil. I know who I am, where I came from and where I am going. Being LDS helped me form my goals from thoughts and make them a reality. The only true peace in this life, and continuing happiness, is in having integrity and knowing where the path is and following it. Deviations are realities as we are all sinners, but with the gospel, I repent (daily), and keep on putting one foot in front of the other to eventually return home to my Heavenly Father, who patiently waits for me. I know my path is the correct one for me and invite you to explore whether it is the right one for you, too. I think it is, but you have to know it is for yourself.

How I live my faith

Faith is shown through daily activity. Here are some of the components of my lifestyle showing how I live my faith: Prayer, sharing beliefs, teaching family, walking the talk, charity work, church attendance, fasting, serving in the community, reading scriptures and applying them to our daily lives, standing for truth and righteousness in all things, at all times and in all places, geneology work, living the word of wisdom (eating healthy, getting enough sleep and exercise), raising families, and constantly learning more about God, the Saviour and the Holy Ghost and applying what is learned in a positive way.

What do Mormons believe about Jesus Christ? Do Mormons believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God?

" I want to give you my testimony. I know that God our Eternal Father lives, that He is the great Governor of the universe, and that we are His children, and that somehow He hears and answers the prayers of His children. I want you to know that I know that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God, that He left His royal home on high and came down among men—hated and abused of men—and that He went about doing good see Acts 10:38. He was crucified out of the hatred of the people; He rose the third day—'the firstfruits of them that slept' (1 Corinthians 15:20). I want you to know that the Father and the Son appeared to the boy Joseph Smith and ushered in this marvelous dispensation—the greatest dispensation in the history of the entire world." This is my testimony, stated in the words of President Gordon B Hinckley. When it comes to Jesus, we think exactly alike and I couldn't state it any better than he did.....no need reinventing the wheel! Truth is truth. Show more Show less
