Hi I'm Carrie Mapp

I am a mom of three boys and one girl. I have always lived south of Atlanta, Georgia and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mom of four children they are 20, 18, 15, and 8 years of age. I am a cosmetologist and have been cutting hair for 27 years. I love being with people. Some of the things I like to do are scrapbook, paint, travel and coupon. I love to teach also. I sub. in the public middle schools and elementary schools where my children attend. I teach early morning seminary. This is my fifth year. I love to serve in the community. I have two sons that are eagle scouts. My husband and children are the most important things in my life and I tell them everyday how important they are to me.

Why I am a Mormon

I was brought up as a Mormon. Just because I was born in the church I still had to be converted. I really knew I was glad to be a member of this church when I had my first child. I did not marry a member and I did not know what that would do to my life when I said "I do". It was hard the first three years of our marriage. We had two children and my husband had been looking into the Church and taken the lessons. I realized I was converting myself when I was answering questions. He joined the church and we have been blessed for so many years now. He has been a member for 17 years. We have four wonderful children and love the gospel of Jesus Christ. I have a very strong testimony of Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost. I know that without them I am not. Being a Mormon makes my life complete. I love knowing who I am and where I am going after I leave this earth. I feel the peace and love that my Father in heaven has for me.

How I live my faith

I teach every school morning a class called seminary. It is for High school students from 9th grade to a senior. We meet every morning school is in session at 6:00am to 6:50. This is my fifth year to teach the scriptures. I am also the secretary of the Relief Society. That is the womens group in the church. I take notes and make sure all assignments are kept track of. I am so blessed by working in the church. I have learned so many things by being busy and helping members of this church while I serve. I love the scripture "When ye are in the service of your fellow beings, ye are only in the service of your God." Mosiah 2:17
