Hi I'm Carl

I am constantly seeking more light. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband and father of 5 children. My family is the greatest prize I have. I love learning. I love being outside. I am a do-it-yourself kind of person.

Why I am a Mormon

The gospel of Jesus Christ provides a clear moral map for me to follow. Life is less confusing – I know who I am because I know who He is. Choosing the right matters, it makes a difference. I can live by eternal principles. By committing myself to the Lord’s teachings, He has softened my heart. I can be open, genuine and kind without worrying whether I am going to get hurt. I can be brave, knowing He will guide me. I can keep trying when I fall, because He lifts me.

How I live my faith

 I strive to be a man of integrity. I was named after my grandfather – we have the same first name, but we both go by our middle names. Many people called my grandfather “Mr. Integrity”. His life has inspired me to be honest in all my dealings and encourage ethical behavior in others. I have fun working with the 11 year old Boy Scouts in our community. We teach the boys to be trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent. We do this by learning skills, playing games, working together and challenging ourselves.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Carl
God has a plan for the happiness for all people. We are His children. We have gained great happiness by knowing we are His and living by His plan. We want others to have this same joy in their lives. Show more Show less

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?
