Hi I'm Carson

I grew up in California and New Jersey. I work in the Hospitality Industry. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've lived in over 8 states. I love to travel. Ever since I was young, I loved to go different places with my family, taking in the culture, meeting new people and learning about the world around me. I particularly enjoyed the interactions with others. It was from this that I took an interest in the travel industry. I have a passion for service. I love to create lasting experiences for them. Through the Gospel of Jesus Christ, we learn that we serve God by serving His children. I love that I can have opportunity to be involved in that process every day.

Why I am a Mormon

Both my parents come from a Protestant background. When I was young, my mother joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I remember going to church with my father one week and my mother the next. My father was baptized a member when I was seven years old. During this time, I always felt "at home" whenever I visited an LDS church building or Temple. I was baptized a member of the Church when I was eight. As a teenager growing up in New Jersey, I developed a love for the Bible and Book of Mormon as I personally read and studied both books of Scripture. I also studied the life and teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith. I came to know for myself that the principles, doctrine, power and authority housed within the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are real and eternal. These principals have been restored through a prophet, as in times past. I know that Jesus of Nazareth is the Christ--the Savior of mankind, and that salvation comes through His Name and through none other.

How I live my faith

I currently teach others the gospel in my own congregation. I visit them in their homes to ensure their needs are being met.
