Hi I'm Carol Wolfert

I'm a wife, mother, grandmother, missionary and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love being a wife, mother of 5 wonderful children and grandmother of 3 adorable grandsons. I am thankful I could stay at home to raise my children. I love attending sporting events especially when my children participate. I love to travel and enjoy finding creative restaurants. I have a passion for good desserts and love creating them. I appreciate spending time in the temple as I receive guidance and direction for my life. I always love reading a good book when I can find the time. I especially love missionaries as I have sent 4 sons into the mission field and now it's my turn to serve as a missionary with my husband and daughter. We are privileged to serve with 130 plus of the finest missionaries in the world. They have sacrificed much to serve a mission as they proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ. I have learned that missions are hard and missionaries have to do hard things, but they are willing to do hard things in order to share their beliefs with others. My greatest joy comes as I watch souls Come Unto Christ through baptism and receiving the Gift of the Holy Ghost. I am very blessed to be part of this great missionary force and will serve Him with all my heart, might, mind and strength.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church as my parents were converts. My mother accepted the missionaries into her home when she was 14 years old and was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. My father discovered the church when he was a prisoner of war in Germany. He joined the church when the war ended then was disowned by his parents. My parents were married in the temple and had 5 children born under the covenant. I grew up where the gospel was taught in our home. I always loved going to church with my family and felt peace and happiness there. I never doubted the church but the older I got I wanted to rely on my own testimony not my parents testimony. I read the Book of Mormon and at the end of the book in Moroni chapter 10:3-5 it says, "If you ask Heavenly Father in faith you will know if the book is true." I prayed to know for myself if the Book of Mormon was true and I received a wonderful peaceful feeling that overcame by body that this indeed was a true book and that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was the true church. I had received my answer through the Holy Ghost and I have never questioned the church since. I know that God lives and hears and answers prayers and that He sent our brother Jesus Christ to the earth to atone for our sins. All that is unfair about life can be made right through the Atonement of Jesus Christ. I have felt Him helping me throughout my life and I know He lives, loves us and is there for us.

How I live my faith

I love to serve the Lord. I wouldn't give up three years of my life, leave my home and family and move 2000 miles away to serve a mission if I didn't know this church was true. Every morning I get down on my knees to thank my Heavenly Father for my life and the opportunity I have to be part of the greatest mission here on earth. I love opening my mouth and sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with others. My joy and happiness comes from serving Him and I will follow Him to the ends of the earth.
