Hi I'm Carie

I'm a Mormon and I love how being a mormon blesses me and my family!

About Me

I'm a mom, something that I've always wanted to be! I have 3 awesome kids and raising them right is so important to me. I worry about all the outside influences on my kids and I want so much for them to be armed with a strong sense of who they are and what they stand for.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a mormon because first and foremost, I love my Savior Jesus Christ. I am so very grateful for all that He has done for me. I was raised mormon and always went to church because that's what my family did. As a teenager I started to compare my life with others and saw how much good can come from being mormon. Little by little I gained a testimony about the truthfulness of His gospel. I see how being a member of His church hugely enriches my life. I am a very shy person and the opportunity to serve and stretch myself while serving in the church has been such a benefit! I've grown so much in so many ways! I also love all that His church teaches to the children! I work with the children ages 3-11 in the primary and I absolutely love what is being taught and love how it helps these special little spirits strive to be more like Jesus Christ. In associating with the teachers at the elementary school my children attend - I have come to learn that they can pick out the children who are mormon by their behavior and they really appreciate them in their classrooms! The youth program in the church is so very inspired! My teenage son is being taught so many important things that helps him in his everyday life. He is participating in the scouting program through the church and is learning so much! He also has a very strong group of friends with the same morals and values and friends are so important to teenagers and have such an influence! There are so many positive things about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints that I cannot talk about them all but I will always be grateful that I am a member of this church!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing my best to be a good example to all who I come in contact with. I live my faith by not partaking in the things that are harmful to me and my body. As I stated above I work with some of the children in our local area congregation and I love it! I try to volunteer in the classroom at school and help out with the extra activities they hold.
