Hi I'm Carl

I am a single adult, an MBA student, an outdoor enthusiast, and a Utah Jazz fan. I love life, food, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a busy, happy, single adult. My days are usually filled with MBA coursework and a full-time job. Outside of that, I love going for an early morning run with my dog (Scout), hiking or riding my bike up a mountain, taking a vacation, watching a Utah Jazz game, or kicking back with a good book.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of my wonderful family and my personal experiences with the Book of Mormon. I was at college, away from my family, when I read this book for the first time. As I began to read and study its pages, the Spirit of the Lord started to touch my mind and heart....it was difficult to put it down. I loved reading it consistently because I noticed that my days went much smoother than when I didn't read it. My relationships were better, my hope and optimism were stronger, and my love and concern for others was more sincere and real. The Book of Mormon was helping me come unto Christ. Since that experience, 11 years ago, I have made a diligent effort to study daily from its pages. The Book of Mormon has forever changed my life for the better, and it has helped me to know that Jesus is the Christ and that this is His church. Through the Book of Mormon, I also know that the Prophet Joseph Smith saw and experienced all that he said that he did.

How I live my faith

I have enjoyed serving and helping members in my singles ward. There are countless opportunities to speak an encouraging word, share your testimony and beliefs, or lend a helping hand. Service helps to keep me grounded and is religion in action. Whenever I feel down or frustrated, forgetting myself and helping others is one of the best ways to improve my day. Service is what Christ would have us do.

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

The Mormon lifestyle is fulfilling and rewarding. It is a lifestyle centered on Jesus Christ and His teachings. It emphasizes strong family relationships, healthy living, service to others, and self-improvement. I have been very happy and have felt very fulfilled living this lifestyle. Show more Show less
