Hi I'm Cari

I'm a wife, mother, photographer, MBA grad. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm married to a wonderful man and have three adorable little boys. I enjoy photography, scrapbooking, baking, traveling and running, just to name a few... My family is the most important thing to me and I love being able to spend each and every day teaching and playing with my boys.

Why I am a Mormon

Although many of my ancestors were early pioneers and the church is part of my heritage, it requires much more than that to be a mormon. I am a mormon because the doctrine is true and living by its principles provides me with freedom. Freedom from financial stress, freedom from emotional heartache, freedom from mind controlling substances and behaviors, freedom from confusion & uncertainty, and the freedom to experience true joy in this life and hope for even greater joy in life after death.

How I live my faith

As a family we have established personal habits to help us to help feel the Lord's spirit each day. Praying, studying the scriptures, reading the words of modern prophets and apostles of God, and seeking things that uplift and strengthen. Each Sunday we attend church to worship God and Jesus Christ, to partake of his holy sacrament and renew our commitment to keep His commandments. Every member of our church has a volunteer job, we do not have paid clergy. My husband's job is to preside over, support and lead all the members of the church in our city. He is equivalent to a pastor, except he does it in his "spare time". He also has a full time job as an attorney. My job is to teach the 18 month to 3 year old children at church on Sunday. I also have several women that I visit each month and make sure they are doing ok and see what I can do to help them. We take care of each other and offer service and support when it is needed. It is so wonderful to move 2,000 miles away and have instant friends, a moving crew and a home cooked meal.
