Hi I'm Carol

I'm a wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. I love to travel. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in the city, but moved to the country after I got married. We lived on a ranch. I learned to do a lot of different things--canning fruits and vegetables from the garden, baking, sewing, making homemade butter and ice cream. It was fun to go out to ride horses with the children or some of my friends. As a family we enjoyed playing baseball and hide and seek. After being a stay-at-home Mom and raising 5 children, I went to work at a bank. I enjoyed working in various positions, but the greatest joy was in working and meeting new people. I enjoy visiting, going to lunch and/or movies with my friends. I enjoy with my children, grandchildren, and grandchildren when I get the chance as they are spread out throughout the country.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised a Mormon. My ancestors were some of the first pioneers to arrive in the Salt Lake Valley in 1847. Because of the heritage that they have left me and the teachings that I have received throughout my life, I have chosen to follow in their footsteps. I have, however, studied, read, and received a witness for myself that the teachings found in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true. I love my Heavenly Father and His son, Jesus Christ, who is my Savior.

How I live my faith

Over the years I have taught young children, youth and adult men and women. I enjoyed working with all ages. It was so fun to be with the youth and to help them in making good choices and decisions in their lives; while at the same time, enjoying having fun while camping, sports activities, or sledding on snow covered hills. Even though now I have physical limitations, I have a love for my neighbors and do what I can to help and assist them. I live on a street where there are many widows and older people. There are times that I am their driver to doctor's appointments, socials, and church functions. I worry about their health and try to check up on them and make sure that they are doing okay. I have also had the opportunity to be involved in projects to benefit my community, nation and the world--working at voting polls, or making quilts, school kits, and hygiene kits to be sent in time of need.
