Hi I'm Karsten Froemming

I've lived in Arizona, Minnesota, and now Utah. I love good food, music, and serving in the England Leeds mission and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I really enjoy sports. I can talk about football, snowboarding/skiing, and ice hockey for ages. Before I left on my mission I was able to work on the ski slopes as a ski patrol-men and I worked at a car garage. I love to hang out with my friends from church and highschool. I was a writer for our schools literary magazine and played highschool football . I try to dip my toes into everything so I am a bit of a hobbiest I guess. I was less active for about 6 years after my parents had been divorced. It was a tough time in my life and I hit rock bottom. After a lot of searching, my heart was softened through experiences of prayer and reaching out wanting to know if God was there, that he knew me and loved my family. He answered my prayers andI knew that I had to change my ways or I would not end up where I wanted to be, or where my Heavenly Father wants me to be. I have traveled a lot in my life, mostly because I played travel Ice Hockey. It hindered my spirituality and caused me to go "off the rails" I have 3 sisters and 2 brothers. My sisters attend church on occasion but other than that nobody in my family attends too often. The gospel has given me greater light and knowedge, it has given me happiness and peace in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that it is Jesus Christ's church re-established in these last days. I had been raised in a family who was really active in the church but after a while fell away. I was baptised when I was eight, but later on realised that I didn't know if god was there, if he loved me, and if there was a plan for me on this earth. After living a life I was not happy with I decided to find out for myself whether heavenly father was truly there. I received my answer through prayer and decided that I needed to do what he had asked of me. I have had many sacred experiences since then, I know that my heavenly father is there, he listens to my prayers, and he knows who I am. I am so grateful for the choice I made to follow the path of Jesus Christ. I am blessed now to be a missionary in his wonderful church.

How I live my faith

I do my best to live by example. After I returned to church I was strongly impressed that I should serve a mission. It has been the greatest decision I have ever made in my life. It has brought me so much closer to God and my family. I ahve seen so many blessings and miracles for my service so far. My family is becoming more active in the church, they show so much support. I am active in my callings in the church, I try to show the lord that I do love him. In order to live the gospel, we always have to make changes and sometimes those things are difficult but I know that they are for the better. I am so exhiliarted to be a missionary in the England Leeds Mission.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?
