Hi I'm Carey

I grew up in Utah. I became a Registered Nurse and married my best friend. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My absolute favorite thing to do is backpacking. I love exploring the outdoors. I am a big animal lover so being outside allows me more opportunities to see them. I enjoy reading, running, and anything that involves family. I graduated with my Bachelors in Nursing and am now working as a Pediatric Nurse. I married my best friend 2 years ago and couldn't be happier.

Why I am a Mormon

I became a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints when I was eight years old. Before I was baptized I prayed hard to my Heavenly Father to let me know if the church was true. When I finished praying I had the feeling to get a Book of Mormon to read from. I opened the first page of the book and read 1st Nephi chapter 1 verse 3 "And I know that the record which I make is true; and I make it with mine own hand; and I make it according to my knowledge." As I read this scripture an overwhelming feeling came to my heart and I knew without a doubt that the church was true and that I needed to be baptized. Since then my faith has continued to grow. I have learned that I am a daughter of God, that he loves me and has a plan for me. I know that the Book of Mormon is true, and that Joseph Smith was a true prophet. I know that we have a living prophet on the earth today. I am grateful for this knowledge and will always try to be the person the Lord wants me to be.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by obeying the commandments of the Lord. I try my hardest to do what is right. Though I am not perfect, I know that I can be through the atonement of Jesus Christ. I also help my husband teach the youth of the church gospel principles. I love being near the youth and enjoying their excitement and insight about life.
