Hi I'm Carla

I work in the accounting field. I have 5 children, and 10 grandchildren. I love life and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been married for 35 years and have 5 children and 10 grandchildren. I work fulltime in the accounting field as does my husband.. I love music, theatre, and humor. I come from a large family by today's standards - 6 children total. I am number 5. My dream job would be to sit and rock newborns and love them for eight hours a day..

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this is the only religion that makes sense to me. I was born into a "mormon" family, but I had to test it for myself and decide whether I believed the doctrine for myself. I listened to what other religions taught and other philosophies, but none made as much sense as this one. I tested the principles taught in this gospel and learned that they are true. My life is better because I try to live the teachings of this religion. If I didn't have these teachings to rely on and to lean on, I may not be alive today. I love Heavenly Father and his plan for all of us to return to him. I love our Savior, Jesus Christ and know that he is aware of each one of us and our trials. He has been there and has faced everything we could possibly face in this life. He is the only one that fully understands how we feel and why we make decisions that we make. I rely on Him constantly. I do need His gudiance to make sure I am being the kind of person I would like to be and to be the kind of person others enjoy knowing.

How I live my faith

I am a member of the "Relief Society" which is an organization of women that aids others in many ways. Our purpose is to provide relief to those who are in need of help physically, spiritually, mentally, and any other way you can think of.. I also teach 14 and 15 year old youth in Sunday School to help them learn of Jesus Christ and his example of how to be a better person. I try to live my faith according to what Jesus asks us to do. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
