Hi I'm Caroline Stewart

I grew up in North Carolina. I am a student at Brigham Young University- Idaho. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student at BYU-Idaho. I grew up on the East Coast without a lot of LDS influence growing up. My mom is a single parent. She raised me in the gospel always teaching me to rely on the Lord for all that I did. Now that I am on my own I have learned how to more fully rely on the Lord's help and that I cannot do it alone, but that I need help.

Why I am a Mormon

All of my family lives in England and they are not members, but knowing that I can share my beliefs with them half-way across the world, knowing that they can see the missionaries and go to a church near them and learn more about what I believe is the best feeling in the world. I come from a broken home and knowing that I will someday have an eternal family with those that I love more than anything is the greatest comfort. Knowing that even in my darkest moments there is someone on my side, cheering me on, offering a hand, offering comfort, tender mercies, and perfect love for me, just one girl on this Earth brings peace to my soul and I can never give adequate thanks to my Heavenly Father and dear Savior, Jesus Christ, for all they do for me, to help me accomplish things that I want to. I could never do the things I do on my own. I know that is because of my faith in this wonderful plan of happiness that the Lord has put forth that I can return to Him and live in eternal peace with Him. I know this gospel is true and I know that it blesses abundantly every day of my life that I seek for guidance and love. I know that when I need comfort I can call on my Father in Heaven. Not growing up with an earthly father never phased me because I have a Heavenly Father who knows me, His divine daughter with a divine potential. I am the daughter of the King, the Creator, the Comforter, the King of peace, and loving Father, how great that is. I know that my redeemer lives! I know he answers prayers and I know He is always with us, if He wasn't I would be lost and with Him by my side it is impossible to be lost!

How I live my faith

I am a college student at BYU-Idaho, a Sunday School teacher, and visiting teacher. It is a wonderful life. Teaching others about the gospel has helped my testimony to grow that much stronger. I have grown closer to my Father in Heaven by teaching His gospel and teaching His children has made me feel a love for them that I have never had before. It has taught me how to tune into the spirit and to take what those impressions and relay them in the lessons for those in attendance. It is not my will, but His.
