Hi I'm Caroline

I grew up in Wisonsin. My greatest happiness is my wonderful family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up figure skating. It was my favorite thing to do and I spent hours and hours practicing and competing. I attended Brigham Young University and met my husband (typical BYU story). After I graduated, we had a baby and moved to Ohio. My favorite season is fall, I'd much rather be cold than hot, and I LOVE to cook (and eat!).

Why I am a Mormon

I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because there is no other church or religion whose doctrine is as complete. There are no fundamental questions that cannot be answered by reading the scriptures, studying the words of the prophets and church leaders, and praying sincerely to Heavenly Father with questions (and then receiving answers through personal revelation). Jesus Christ is the head of the church. He is who we worship; He is the most important factor in the religion. This is key. Everything about the gospel taught by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints points to Him. I am a Mormon because there is no other way I can return to live with Him than by following His gospel and being a member of His church.

How I live my faith

I have really grown to love the relationship I have with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. It is very central to my life and directs my decisions. I belong to a congregation here in Ohio and I have the pleasure of working with the teenagers. It is a bit scary because they are so impressionable! I have found it to be very important that I live the principles I teach, otherwise, I'm just another hypocritical adult. I really love trying to channel all of their energy into positive activities and teaching them Christ-like attributes. We have lots of fun doing service projects, playing games and strengthening our faith.
