Hi I'm Caroline

I'm a harpist, a wife, a mother, and a homemaker. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up vacationing each summer in the beautiful mountains of Southwestern Colorado. When it came time for my husband and I to choose where to raise our children, the state of Colorado was a natural choice. My husband and I met in a college class and we were married a little over a year later. We have lived in 4 different states throughout our marriage and have been blessed with 3 beautiful children. As parents our central focus is to teach our children well and give them the tools they need to be good people and strong members of society. About a year and a half ago my husband set up his own dental practice. This experience has also allowed our entire family to be involved in creating a business that we hope will be an asset for good in our community for years to come. Because of the practice we have had the chance to participate in many community events. It is very satisfying to work so hard together as a family. Music is also a very important part of our family's life. My husband plays the piano and I play the harp. The harp is something I greatly enjoy sharing with others and I have recently started to teach it. Although I have many interests, I know that my most important responsibility right now is my work as a mother and a wife. I work very hard to create a loving home for our family. I feel that this is a work that will have a priceless impact on generations to come.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family and was taught the gospel as a child. However, it was a very conscious and deliberate choice of my own to follow the Mormon faith as an adult. I have chosen this path because I find great strength in the truth of the gospel, namely in the knowledge that I am a daughter of God and that he is aware of me and my personal struggles and triumphs. Having this knowledge gives me the courage and faith to face the challenges that come my way and to make honest and good decisions. My husband and I have a great desire to instill in our own children the knowledge that they too are children of God. We feel that this truth will allow them to make the correct decisions in their own lives so they can find peace even in this sometimes troubled world. I also have a strong and personal testimony of the Savior Jesus Christ. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the same church that he established while he was here on this earth. This is one of the most important reasons that I am a member of this church today.

How I live my faith

Remembering that I have a purpose here on this earth shapes my everyday decisions. This knowledge affects what I say, how I act, what I wear, how I spend my time, how I speak to my children, what I watch on T.V, and even what I eat and drink. Each day I try to live in a way that is pleasing to my Father in Heaven so that I can feel his strength and help in my life at all times. When I fall short in some area I am grateful for the atonement that allows me to repent and receive that strength again. Living a good life and following the example of Jesus Christ is of great importance to me. I do not live this way out of fear, or out of obligation. Instead I try to live in this way because it is my way of showing love for my Father in Heaven and in his Son Jesus Christ. I also know that this is the best way to have a happy and satisfying life on this earth. I can feel calm about my future and my family’s future because of my knowledge of the gospel.
