Hi I'm Karson

I was raised in the Sanoran Desert, I Love Off-roading, I'm Serving in a mission in Mississippi and I'm a morMAN.

About Me

I hope you love cheese, cause this profile is like the dairy isle at Wal-mart. I'm the kind of guy who, in the words of the hit song, "laughs at a funeral." Unless its someone I know, then its sad... Just kidding. I believe in having fun wherever and whenever you can. I mean, they always say that laughter is the best medicine, right? Well, I'm a very sick guy, so I keep a bottle of good ol'fashion Tom-foolery in my back pocket at all times for when my symptoms get real bad. Not to say that I can't be serious. I completely understand that certain times call for certain measures. For everything there's a season, right? But I think that in this bleak world we live in today, we can forget that the whole main reason our Heavenly Father put us here was to BE HAPPY! I just don't want to lose that. SO! I try and make every moment worth it. And what are always the best memories? The ones that make us happy :D. Oh, I also enjoy amateur photography, I loooove off-roading in the desert, I'm so fly only forest fires can prevent ME (sorry, I've just always wanted to use that, I'm really not THAT fly) I love puns aaaaannnnnddddd... I'm a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I believe that belief is something to be believed in. Believe it. In all seriousness, I'm a Mormon because it makes me happy. Before I decided to come on a mission (I'm on a mission by the way.) for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, I was one of those Mormons who went through all the motions just to please my parents. I was the kind of guy who just wanted to go through life without having confrontation or drama or anything, and I knew that if I left the church, t'would break my dear mother's heart. I'd seen the kind of trouble disobedience had brought into my life through actions of others and through the actions I committed each day. So I just decided to "go with the flow." But there comes a time in every little boy's life where they have to man up and decide what they're going to do with their existance. And that time came for me when I was about 18 1/2. In the church, all male members have the opportunity when they're 19 to serve a 2 yr mission where we go out and talk to people about Jesus Christ, the message of the Restoration, and just go about doing as much good as we can like the Savior did. Well came time that it was MY time to do that. You know, I'd been taught Mormon theology since I can remember, but I sure as heck didn't believe in it. I wasn't even sure if I believed in God at that time... So when I was offered the opportunity to give up 2 yrs of my life to the Lord, I had to pause and think "Well shoot... Can I really go out and teach something I don't believe in?" No. I could not. So, "What was to be done?" I thought. Then another thought popped into my head. I had always been taught that if I wanted to know about anything, I was to "search, ponder and pray." So, I done it. And here I am, writing my story on Mormon.org from a computer thousands of miles away from home. I think you can guess what my answer was, huh? And you know what? I've never been happier :)

How I live my faith

I'm currently serving the Lord in my capacity as a missionary. But you know that already. Cause you read why I'm Mormon.... Right?
