Hi I'm Carson

I love to run, eat Mexican food, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I enjoy running in the wilderness, and learning new things everyday. Right now I'm a missionary, preaching the Good Word, and learning to speak the Spanish at the same time. I love it! Before, I lived in Idaho and did all sorts of Idaho things. I like to go fishing, biking, four-wheeling, you name it. Being with friends, reading, and pretending to sing are also a lot of fun. I love serving people too, and have been blessed to be able to do a lot of volunteer work, where I've met a ton of wonderful people. Those are some of my favorite things.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family of Mormons, and so grew up not knowing much else. God has always been a central focus in my life, and it wasn't until I wanted to really come to know Him, that I decided I needed to find out for myself. Through studying the holy scriptures, and praying sincerely, with all my heart, I have come to know of a surety that God lives, that He loves me, and that Jesus Christ is the Savior and Redeemer of the world. I also received a spiritual witness that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the church of Christ. Once again established on the earth, it is here to help us be happier and grow closer to God. Who wouldn't want that?

How I live my faith

Looking for ways to serve and helping others smile is how I live my faith. Whether it is helping an elderly person take out their trash, or asking some random person how their day is going, I love looking for opportunities to serve and lift others up. By reaching out in love towards everyone, then we can see God's miracles work in our lives, and in the lives of others. Doing what Christ would do in all situations, is a wonderful way to bring happiness into the lives of others. By following His holy example, and focusing all our heart, might, mind and strength completely on the Prince of Peace, then we can be more capable to bless and lift others up.

How can faith in Jesus Christ influence us in our marriages and family relationships? in our friendships?

Carson
Having Faith in Christ can bless and influence in these ways because when people share a common goal (to return to live again with God), then their differences will slowly melt away. They will be refined, develop Christlike attributes, and become more unified as they strive to meet their celestial goal. Show more Show less
