Hi I'm Carmelle.

I'm a Mormon, and I love it!

About Me

I love to go hiking or trail running. I graduated in English and enjoy reading. My greatest joy is being a mom! My husband and I have 5 sons and 1 daughter; they are our greatest treasure! I try to teach them to follow Jesus Christ. I know that if we follow Christ we can live forever with our families. This is very important to me because our oldest son passed away when he was 16 years old. He got into a bicycle accident when was training on his road bike to be ready for the Junior National Competition. He was a very talented bicyclist who kept God's commandments. I know he is happy and busy in the spirit world right now.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up an active Mormon. I choose to be a Mormon now because I believe the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true gospel of Jesus Christ restored to the earth. I feel at happy and peaceful when I turn to Heavenly Father in prayer. He helps me be strong as I face the challenges in my life. I know I am a spirit daughter of heavenly parents who love me. I want to fulfill my divine potential by working every day step by step to be more like Christ. I know that through the atonement of Christ, we can repent, be comforted during our trials, and be resurrected. I feel so blessed to know that our Heavenly Father has an eternal plan of happiness for all of us to follow!

How I live my faith

I love to sing, and I am so blessed to be able to work with the children 3-11 years old on Sundays. I am the Primary Chorister. I get to teach the children to sing beautiful songs about the gospel of Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father's plan for us to return to live with him again. I love the fun, happy smiles and personalities of the kids. It is so wonderful to spend time with them! I also try to read the scriptures every day alone and with my family! They bring a peaceful spirit into our lives and help us know how to live. We also pray individually and as a family morning and night. It helps us be close to Heavenly Father. He hears and answers our prayers!
