Hi I'm Mindi Carwin

I have always enjoyed being active. I LOVE to run and dance. I enjoy creating things. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a very outgoing active person. I love being with people and having fun. I have a love for running which has led to many marathons. I am currently getting into triathlons. I love singing and dancing. One of my favorite things is to put on music and just move, unfortunately the furniture keeps getting in the way! I have taught dance for years and love sharing the joy of movement. I also have a new desire to build things, with wood. It has been a fun new hobby! I am married to an amazing man who inspires me in many ways, he is my best friend. We have six beautiful children who keep me on my toes! They are all boys except my second to last which is a girl. They truly bring me great joy! I have a BS degree in Physical Education and two dance minors. I love to learn and love to read. I love to be thrifty and reusing old things to make them useful again. My idea of a good time is to be with the people I love, my family, and friends and enjoy life and nature!

Why I am a Mormon

I was blessed to be raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, as a Mormon. I gained my own testimony that this is the only true church on the earth. I know this with all my heart and I have a testimony that Joseph Smith truly did see God the Father and his Son Jesus Christ. Through their direction he restored the gospel on the earth and translated the Book of Mormon from the Golden Plates. It is a wonderful beautiful think to have the whole truth, and I know that because I have read and prayed, and asked, and the Holy Ghost has made it known unto me. I am a Mormon because I know that this is Christ's Church. The principles of the gospel are true, they are good, and all good things come of Christ. I know my Savior lives! It is through his atonement that we can repent and become clean. It is my Savior Jesus Christ that brings me peace. I know that by living and keeping his commandments, and daily repenting of my sins, that I will someday be able to live again with Him again. He is the life, the light, and the way!

How I live my faith

Life can be challenging, but it can be filled with joy as well. For me living the Gospel of Jesus Christ brings me joy. I am daily striving to become a better person. I know that daily prayer and scripture study are vital in this process. I also know that without repentance I would be lost, because I need it daily. I am so far from perfect, but I know that my Savior can help me become the person I want to be. As a family we meet weekly and sing together, play games, have fun and most importantly teach each other principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We also strive to read the scriptures together daily and pray as a family morning and night. It truly helps to strengthen us as a family.
