Hi I'm Carol

I'm a mother, I'm a gardener, I'm a fisher, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have 5 boys. I'm am the oldest of 4 girls. I enjoy fishing, and being outdoors (although my nose doesn't). I love the ocean, and lighthouses. I am an avid crocheter, and can make anything from bell holders to blankets. I have a wonderful colley mix dog named Bailey. Jig saw puzzels, when I'm bored, take up my time.

Why I am a Mormon

I think for me, the reason I became a Mormon, was because I was able to be forgiven for all that I have done. I know that God loves me through the forgiveness he gives to me. I never thought that, that could happen. When I was meeting with the missionaries, I met with them for 3 years, and there were 6 different missionaries that taught me. One of the aspects of the church that I loved and made sense to me, was the fact that babies are saved through the atonement of Christ, and do not have to be baptized until they reach the age of accountability (8 years old). I also know that God answers my prayers. I read and I prayed about the Book of Mormon to know if it is true, and by the power of the Holy Ghost, I know that the Book of Mormon is truly the word of God.

How I live my faith

I love teaching primary (4-5 year old children), although I miss the classes that the women go to. I renew my covenenants, or promises, with God each week by partaking of the sacrament. I have "Family Home Evening" every Monday, read and pray every day, and do the "small and simple things" that allow me to have the Spirit in my life. There is no other feeling like having the Spirit in my life, and that is what I strive to do so that I can know that I am living the way my Father in Heaven wants me to live my life.

In whom should we have faith?

In God, Jesus Christ, and also in ourselves. Faith has to be rooted in Jesus Christ in order to produce salvation though. Faith is more that an acknowledgment that He lived and died for our sins. Faith is a principle of action, it involves having trust, confidence, and submission to Him. Show more Show less
