Hi I'm CarolAnn

I'm a 23 year old mom and a software product manager. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a 23 years old and have been married to my best friend for 4 years. We have a beautiful little girl who is almost 1! I graduated with my degree in public relations and a minor in political science. I'm a software product manager for a hospitality company and I'm supporting my family while my husband works on his doctorate in physical therapy. My hobbies include anything related to politics, reading, sewing, golfing, and recently--learning how to cook dairy and soy free due to my daughter's allergies.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because the gospel gives me peace in an unsure world. I'm a natural 'worrier', but having the gospel in my life helps me remember that I have a Heavenly Father and Mother who love me and have a plan for my life. Because I'm a Mormon I know without a doubt where I came from, what I need to do with my life on this earth, and where I will go after I die. Nothing seems as hard or as scary in life when you have that knowledge. The gospel empowers me.

How I live my faith

I teach 9 year old children about the gospel every Sunday at church. I love my assignment because I get to study the basics of what the Mormon church is all about. It's easy share the teachings of the church with these curious kids because there is always a straightforward answer to all of the questions they can come up with. And they come up with a lot of questions! That is one of the advantages to having a living prophet to guide my church. I know that the Bible and the Book of Mormon are the word of God, and I love studying their teachings, but because of when they were written they couldn't possibly address all questions such as appropriate clothing, music, language and other contemporary social trends and teachings. A living prophet on this earth, partnered with the scriptures, help us stay on the path to eternal life with our Heavenly Father. I am so thankful for our prophet Thomas S. Monson.
