Hi I'm Carrie

I'm an AZ native. I'm a busy mother of 4 busy children. I love my life. I am Mormon!

About Me

I am a busy mother of 4 busy children. We LOVE sports and our life if centered around it. When we aren't doing something involving sports (which isn't often), we enjoy being together as a family, taking family outings, going on vacation as a family, and occassionally I get a date-night with my husband.

Why I am a Mormon

I was extremely fortunate, being born into an LDS family. My family goes all the way back to Joseph Smith (through Hyrum), who is my Great, Great, Great, Great Uncle. I know in my heart that the Lord looks after me and my family. I have faith that if I follow his plan, my family will be together for eternity. I married a great man, outside of the Mormon religion. Through the Lord's work and prayer, my husband was baptised, and then a year later we were able to go through the Temple and be sealed as a family for time and all eternity. It was truly the happiest day of my life to know that we will be an eternal family. When you know you are following the correct faith, you feel it inside, you get that good, burning sensation that you are doing the right thing. Nothing tells you better than your heart. And I know in my heart that this is the true church, and I know the Lord is extremely happy that I have chosen his path, his way, to be with him again someday.

How I live my faith

I live my life by basic example, treat others the way you want to be treated, don't put dangerous/harmful things into your body, be honest with your fellow dealings with man, lead by example, and serve others the best you can. I am lucky enough to provide service to our church by helping out our women's group and organizing activities. We (me and a small group of women) organize once every other month meetings, where we do fun things together, get to know eachother better, provide service to others, and feel the Lord's presence in our lives. I also help organize some of the women's sports activities, which also allows the women in our church to get to know one another better while having fun and getting some exercise. Living in today's society can be challenging and trialing at times, but overall I am extremely happy and grateful for my family, my faith, and the Lord's plan.
