Hi I'm Sister Karford

I love to Be Outside. I am serving in the Canada Edmonton Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in the Colorado air. As such I love to hike and venture in the Rocky Mountains. In this beautiful world there are so many fascinating aspects. Like the rain how it freezes to make snow, how the trees change colors and the flowers bud and bloom. It really is so amazing! I find much joy in perfecting one of the most precious gift I have been given; my body. I hope to someday complete two iron man triathlons, a marathon and summit Mount Everest. Being outside and witnessing God's creations is so relaxing for me. There are times that I wish I could spend all my time outside but I do enjoy having a nice comfy chair by a warm crackling fire.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I see the blessings and miracles in my own life and the lives of who I associate with. These blessings are of health, strength, safety, success in jobs and businesses I am employed in, friend's kindness, family success and in relationships. I know this Gospel of Jesus Christ was restored by a prophet called of God, Joseph Smith. Through Revelation, I know that The Book of Mormon was translated and that it is the truest record of Christ we have here on the Earth. I know that my Heavenly Father hears and especially answers my prayers. I know that He loves me and knows the struggles I face. I know that Jesus is the Christ and that he suffered for my sins, pains, and disappointments. I know that he has been there for me and I have felt him lifting my burdens. My Savior and Redeemer does not leave anyone alone. He is ever near. I know Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ loves every person on this earth, where ever you are from, where ever you are, always. He really cares about where you are going and what you are becoming. He wants you to be Happy and return to Him, as we lived and dwelt with Him before we were here. I know the Temple is the House of God and that when we are worthy we can feel the peace and love that is felt there. When we endure to the end, and do our very best to understand and more importantly apply the Atonement of Jesus Christ "what Joy will fill our souls."

How I live my faith

In February of 2013 I received my mission call to the Canada Edmonton Mission. I am currently serving there and I love it! I have been to the Southgate Area, Grande Prairie and Millwoods, south of Edmonton. There are so many people willing and ready to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ and come unto him. One of my favorite ways to spread the word, is through song. Under the bridges of the transit systems, the acoustics are amazing. As people hear the words and chords we sing, peoples faces change from gloom to contentment. It's one of the best win-win situations. The performers receive light while praising God and the hearers feel the love God has for them.
