Hi I'm Carmen Hughes

I love to sing. I am an interior designer. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I graduated from a community college with a 2 year degree in interior design. So far I really love what I do. My parents live about a mile away and I love being close to them. I have two nephews and one niece. They brighten my world everyday. I love my husband so much. We have a little puppy and she is the sweetest, most adorable thing.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and baptized at the normal age of 8. I remain a member because I believe in what the church stands for. I have high standards because it keeps me happy and true. I know that Jesus Christ lives, and I know that he died so that I can return to my Heavenly Father. I know that Joseph Smith was a true and wonderful prophet and that he restored Christ's gospel to the world. I know that this is the promised land. I can't learn and read about the history of this great country without knowing that God meant for us to be here. He inspired our forefathers and he knew what we could accomplish. I know that President Monson is a true prophet who speaks to God and is inspired and directed by him everyday. I know that he receives inspiration for us.

How I live my faith

I live my everyday by the standards that I have always been taught. I keep the commandments and learn and grow every time I attend church. I teach a lesson every fourth Sunday. I teach from the May and October conference editions of the Ensign. I love teaching because not only do I get to teach others about important things that will change their lives, but I learn about these things from studying and teaching. I also love teaching because I get to hear others' ideas on what things mean. This brings new ideas and inspiration into my life.

Why do Mormons believe in the Bible?

Carmen Hughes
We believe in the Bible as far as it translated correctly. We believe in the Bible because it has testimonies of Christ from ancient times. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about "eternal life?"

Carmen Hughes
We believe that we can see our families again. In the temple we are sealed to our families for time and all eternity. When a family member dies, we mourn but we aren't sad because we know that we will see them again. Show more Show less
