Hi I'm Carisa

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a senior in college studying Health Science and Home and Family; working on becoming a physician assistant. I am the oldest of 4 kids and I am also a twin. I am an autism therapist. I love to sew and create new things and I am learning to play the ukulele in my free time. I love dancing and being adventurous. I'm a mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

Being mormon has taught me who I really am, I am a daughter of my Heavenly Father. God is my Heavenly Father, he knows me personally, he knows my trials, weaknesses, heart aches and frustrations. He has a plan for me and a purpose for all that I experience here on this earth and that purpose is to enable me to return to him again. Knowing that i am a child of God helps me see past lifes imperfections and realize that I was created for more than what I see and that God is molding me into someone far above the woman that I dream to be. Life is tough but knowing who I really am allows me to go forward with confidence in the future.

How I live my faith

I try to live my life in a way that displays my faith, granted I definitely have my fair share of days when I get frustrated and a little less than kind; but I am working on being someone who is a disciple of Christ. I find that as I work harder to be a disciple of Christ I spend more time each day studying my scriptures, more time on my knees praying, I put forth more effort to be a better sibling/child/friend, and I am kinder. I think a knowledge of who I am and why I am here helps me to not waste my time; I try to repair hurt feelings faster and work on improving my relationships to make lasting friendships that matter. In my church I live my faith by planning social activities for anywhere around 100 people. These activities are always planned with a purpose, they are supposed to make others feel invited and included; those who do and do not share our faith. As we invite others to participate we are also inviting them to come unto Christ. I live my faith at home by being an example, I have 3 siblings and I know that they are watching me; I want them to be strengthened by my faith not weakened by my lack of it. I live my faith in the community by trying to be that happy positive person that people naturally gravitate to, then I can share the reason I am happy; the gospel. Living my faith makes me a better.
