Hi I'm Carol

I was born in New Jersey but I grew up in Arizona. I do volunteer work and family history.

About Me

I'm 75 years old. I have 3 sons, 18 grandchildren and 17 great grandchildren. I go to Minnesota in the Spring and come back to Arizona in the Fall. When I'm in Arizona I volunteer at a food bank that our church operates and at a nursing home. When I'm in Minnesota I work at the Family History Center and again volunteer at a nursing home. I enjoy sewing, baking and genealogy. When my husband was alive we traveled around the country a lot but now I mostly just go back and forth between Arizona and Minnesota.

Why I am a Mormon

I met with the missionaries. They gave me a Book of Mormon and showed me where it said in Moroni that if I prayed about it the Holy Ghost would bear witness that it was true. I prayed about it. That was over 50 years ago and ever since then I have known that the Church was trueand that the Book of Mormon was another witness that Jesus is the Son of God. I know that He and Heavenly Father appeared to Joseph Smith and that Joseph was given the plates and translated them by the power of God.

How I live my faith

Since my husband died I've tried to keep busy. I read my Scriptures daily and keep a journal. I do volunteer work at a nursing home. I visit with some sisters from the Church each month and I work at the Family History Center that is at our church building. I read my scriptures and keep a journal. I have a garden. I try to good where I can and cheer up people that are sad or lonely.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

I know that our Heavenly Father is literally the father of our spirits. He loves all of His children. He sent prophets to guide His children in Old Testament times to guide them and show them the way so they could return to Him. I know that He loves us as much as He loved them. He wouldn't leave us to wander through life without any guidance. Of courrse we have a prophet today. Our prophet is Thomas S. Monson. Show more Show less
