Hi I'm Carson

I'm a varsity basketball player. I'm a huge Disney fan. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the second oldest in a family of 5. I am a senior in high school and I'm looking forward to my life ahead of me. I play basketball for my high school. This year will be my second year playing varsity and I love it. I like to hang out with friends a lot. I love disney! I fell in love with Disney on my first trip to Disneyland. Ever since i have tried to immerse myself with anything and everything Disney. I have read 3 Walt Disney biographies and a number of books about Disneyland. I love to visit Disneyland and my family goes once a year. My dream is to grow up and become a Disney Imagineer or at least have a career working for Disney. I have been to Ethiopia in Africa with a group called Hope Arising. There I help my Dad do dental work by cleaning and sterilizing the dental instruments. I'm getting ready to go again and hope to go many more times. I love working with the people there and it gave me a new out look on life.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a mormon because of the examples of parents, grandparents, and other family. I have seen how their beliefs and commitments to the church have blessed them immensely in their lives and i also want that in my life. I love the plan of salvation and how families are an important and sacred structure in our current life and for eternity. I love the joys that are brought from families living righteously. I want to have those joys for when I have a family and i know that i can have that through living the gospel of Christ. I know that the words in the Book of Mormon are true and i have felt the spirit testify that to me.

How I live my faith

I try my hardest to live my faith as much as I can. I try to think about my faith before I think of my obligations in my life. The scouting program is big in the church. I am an eagle scout. I also participate in a program called Duty to God. I have learned a lot through these programs. I have a couple of assignments that help me plan activities and other things for youth my age. I like to plan fun things but also activities that help the youth become closer to our Heavenly Father and gain a greater testimony of Jesus Christ. Activities that help us to try to live our lives better. I try to do this because I know that I will be closer to Christ. Being close to Christ makes me happy.
