Hi I'm Carlie.

I grew up in Tucson. I went to school in Utah and Phoenix. I teach second grade.

About Me

I served a mission in Brazil. I love getting to know people and making new friends. I enjoy spending time with my family, especially my nieces and nephews. I love children, which is why I decided to go back to school and get my teaching certificate. I now teach second grade and love it!

Why I am a Mormon

I love the pure and simple principles of the gospel. I know that when I pray, Heavenly Father hears me and wants to help me. It comforts me to know that I am a child of God and that He knows me and loves me. I know that as I strive to live the gospel and obey the commandments I will be blessed. I have felt the spirit confirm to me on many occasions that this church is true. One of my first memories of this that has really stuck with me happened when I was visiting church history sites back east with my family. As I entered Joseph Smith's home and the sister missionary described what had happened in that home I was completely humbled and filled with the spirit. My testimony of Joseph Smith was strengthened and I felt sure that the true church of Jesus Christ was restored to earth through him. I feel blessed to have the gospel in my life because it adds so much strength to me when I face hard times.

How I live my faith

I go to church each week and participate in the activities that the church offers. I feel blessed to have responsibilities working with the women and young single adults. I help plan activities and visit the women that may be in need of extra support or help.
