Hi I'm Carrie

I am a Physical Therapist, an amateur triathlete, I love the great outdoors and traveling the world. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like to try new things and am always looking for adventure. I enjoy scuba diving, rock climbing, cycling, running, swimming, reading, relaxing, and being with my family. I work full time as a Physical Therapist and enjoy the opportunity to help others get a new lease on life and get moving again. I work primarily with neurologically involved patients. I am the "favorite" aunt to lots of beautiful nieces and nephews.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in an LDS Mormon family and attended church every week as a child and youth. I was baptized by my dad when I was 8 years old. I guess you could say I was born and raised a Mormon and so that is why I am a Mormon, but it is so much more than that. I am a Mormon because I have felt the spirit in my own life, I have read the Book of Mormon and asked Heavenly Father about the truthfulness of the gospel. I was a missionary and had the opportunity to share my testimony of the gospel with others. I know that God loves me, I know that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world and I know that by living the teachings of Jesus Christ and following HIs example I will be happy, because I am happy in my life. I received my own confirmation and had my own conversion to the church through prayer and scripture study, so that is why I am a Mormon.  

How I live my faith

 I live my faith by trying every day to live the teachings of Jesus Christ to be an example to others, to love and serve others, and to study the teachings of Jesus Christ found in the scriptures. I also live my faith by serving with the Young Women ages 12-18 at church. I attend mid week activities with them, dances, church meetings and get the opportunity to teach them about the Gospel of Jesus Christ and bring them closer to him. I also have the privilege of visiting other women in the ward each month and sharing experiences with them that helps build friendships and strengthens my faith.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

 A testimony is a statement of those things which we know to be true. Just as a lawyer will seek out testimony from witnesses in a trial, a testimony for Mormons is just that, a witness or statement of what we know to be true. Usually a testimony involves a statement about Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, the Book of Mormon, and the prophet Joseph Smith and the Restoration of the Gospel. You could say those are the foundation of a testimony of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Show more Show less
