Hi I'm Carissa

I'm a young wife and mom. I love singing and cooking. I'm a movie junkie. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a young wife and mother with a wonderful husband, a beautiful little girl, and a baby boy on the way. I've loved to sing my whole life and I learn best from music and lyrics. I try to express my love for others by cooking for them! I've gone through some college and I hope to make it back there someday. My family is a big part of my life, and I know they love and support me and my husband in everything we do. I grew up and live in the eastern US.

Why I am a Mormon

I was adopted through LDS Family Services when I was a baby and was placed in an LDS (Mormon) home. I grew up in a home filled with knowledge of God and His plan for us. I learned that I am a daughter of God and I can return to live with Him again if I follow the example of my Savior, the teachings in the scriptures, and the words of the prophets. I was sealed to my parents for time and eternity, and, eventually, sealed to my husband as well. We will be together forever as a family. I'm a Mormon because I know the Lord loves me. I know Jesus died for all of my past, present, and future shortcomings and mistakes. I know the Lord wants me to return to live with him after I die so that I can live happily with my family for all eternity. I know that God still speaks to prophets today because He wants us to have as much spiritual guidance as we need. I know families are meant to be forever. I know my family will be a "forever family", as I live faithfully and according to the commandments given us through the prophets. I'm a Mormon because I love my Savior and I want to show my gratitude and dedication to Him.

How I live my faith

I try to be a disciple of Christ, always. It's not always easy, but I surround myself with positive influences to help keep me on track! I participate in my congregation by offering my talents and my services. I have found a love of service through the Church. I love to sing and share my love of music by singing of God and Jesus Christ in church.
