Hi I'm Christopher Carlisle

I have a family of a wife and two children. I have a nine year old boy and a seven year old girl. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy working with Scouts, Fishing, hiking, and camping. I love spending time with my kids and my wife. I work for the state of Idaho and enjoy my career. I graduated from Utah State University with a bachelors in marketing.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church but had to develop my testimony much like any convert to the church. I have returned to my knees often in prayer and developed that testimony over time. I now know who my Savior is. I found out the Book of Mormon is true. After that a lot of doctrines and concepts fell into place. I love to continue learning marvelous truths that can only be discovered through the revealing guidance of the Holy Spirit.

How I live my faith

I spend time throughout each week with my family teaching them the teachings of Jesus. We study scriptures each morning and we pray together. I share things about the church with colleagues and friends.

Why is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints called Mormons or Mormonism?

Christopher Carlisle
It is a nickname because we believe in the Book of Mormon. Many of my friends call me by this nickname. I do not get offended or anything because I get to tell them how we picked up the name and why we are really the Church of Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
