Hi I'm Carl

I teach children music and love home cooked meals. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college students working to become a music teacher. I play the trumpet semi-professionally, but am working on other instruments and singing to become a better teacher. I am a ping-pong master and enjoy macaroni and cheese.

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up in the church I felt that this church was right, but I didn't know for sure until I read the Book of Mormon and tried to teach it to a class of 9 and 10 year old children in the church. I have served a mission now and I look forward to being married in one of God's temples. The people in my church congregation are so friendly and caring. This is truly God's church.

How I live my faith

I go to the temple as often as I can and I attend religious classes at the church's institute of religion on my college campus. I have most recently been helping with the organization of the hundreds of records of people who go to church with me.

Why don’t Mormons drink coffee, tea, or alcohol? What is the Mormon Church’s law of health and proper diet?

When I go to a party I want to walk away remembering the people I met and the things we talked about. With my faulty memory I have a hard enough time doing that. I don't need the influence of a chemical in my body to aid me in forgetting why I was doing something or who I was with. Also, if I go to sleep early and eat healthy in the morning I don't need something to get me up and going every day. I want my body to be in top shape for whatever else may come my way that day, so I am training my body to function properly whenever I want or need it. Show more Show less
