Hi I'm Carin

I'm a mom of five daughters. I love the outdoors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife. I am a mother. I’m a stay at home mom of 5 girls. I love the challenges that come with each day. I love the outdoors. I also enjoy exercising, reading and cooking.

Why I am a Mormon

I have learned that my Heavenly Father knows me and loves me. I was raised in a Mormon home and was taught the gospel from when I was little. However, I have learned for myself that I am a child of God. He has given us commandments and principles to live by so that we can be happy. He wants us to be happy, even through the difficulties we experience. I am a Mormon because I want to have joy in my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying my best to be a Christ-like person. I ask myself what would He want me to do. I feel the responsibility of being an example to my daughters, I want them to have integrity, to be kind, to be pure. I have high hopes and expectations for my daughters. The only way I can expect this is to hold myself to a high standard as well.. I hope that my children find that their mother is an example to them.

Why are Mormons asked to donate 10% of their income to their Church?

Tithing is a commandment from our Heavenly Father. In Malachi 3:8-10 we learn that paying our tithing will bring us blessings. I know this to be true. Due to the economy my husband was laid off from his job, we chose to keep the commandment of tithing and excersise our faith, while he was looking for employment we continued to pay our tithing. Our family never went without, while the blessings that were poured down upon us weren't always what we expected we had what we needed during this difficult time. After 14 months he found a great job and I know that we survived this without any financial difficulty because we pay our tithing. Show more Show less
