Hi I'm Cliff Carlson

I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am a forty-something father of three, working as a telecommunications technician in my hometown. I joined the LDS church in 1989 after a brief introduction and upon reading the Book of Mormon. My faith has been a learning adventure, oftentimes spirited and other times trying. But the older i get I find that the choices i make are leading me to a life in harmony with the world around me. The greatest joy in life for me is seeing a child discover the simple wonders of the Earth. My hope is to be the kind of person who lives an example of Christ's love in all that I do. My hobbies are photography, music and making things with my kids.

Why I am a Mormon

 I am a Mormon because the church offers everything I need to complete my understanding of things like the meaning of life and how to live it. I used to think that I could piece together enough ideas from my own experience and education to find those things, but then I realized that I needed the blessing of modern revelation by our living prophet as a to guide my personal beliefs.

How I live my faith

 I like to attend church regularly and participate in social events. I enjoy service work and hope that one day my family can join with me in my church activity. I find peace in prayer and meditation, and I know that when I choose to live my life according to gospel priniciples I am blessed with health and well-being.
