Hi I'm Carol

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married and have four children and four grandchildren. I enjoy being outdoors and traveling.

Why I am a Mormon

I joined the church in 1982. As I was growing up I had always gone to Church and tried to live the teachings I had learned, but felt I wasn't living as close to my Heavenly Father as I wanted to or thought I should. Since joining the Church I now feel that I can serve Him each day of my life, not just on Sundays. I know that Jesus is my Savior and that he died for me that my sins can be forgiven. I know that I have the Holy Ghost to guide me everyday, I love to read the scriptures including the Bible and the Book of Mormon and I know they are the word of God. I know that there is a living Prophet on the earth and that he receives direction from Heavenly Father to guide and direct the Church.

How I live my faith

On Sundays I teach three and four year olds. It is such a blessing to spend time with these young people and to discus the teachings of the Gospel in such basic terms. I am also a visiting teacher, another Sister and I have three sisters that we visit with at least once each month to share a Gospel message and to check on their needs. In addition to this I enjoy daily scripture study with my husband. We also set aside time on Monday evenings to spend time together and focus on a spiritual message.

What do Mormons believe about "eternal life?"

We believe that we lived in heaven with our Heavenly Father and Jesus as spirits before we were born on earth. Our time on earth is a time for us to learn many things and make choices. If we beleive in Jesus Christ and follow his teachings we can return to live in our Heavenly home for all etermity. We also believe that through the ordinances of the Temple we can be married for time (our earth live) and all eternity, not just until "death do us part" Show more Show less
