Hi I'm Carson Russell

I grew up in Olympia Washington. I love biking and I´m a Mormon.

About Me

I am the youngest of a large family of 6. I love spending time with my family. I am a microbiology major at BYU. I love all sports. My favorite thing to do is bike. I mountain biked for most of the time that I was in High School. I got into road biking a bit and did the Seattle to Portland bike event. Other hobbies include quading, snowboarding, and wakeboarding.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that it is the restored church of Jesus Christ. Being Mormon has brought me so much happiness in my life. It has strengthened my family and helped me stay focused on the important things in life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be a disciple of Jesus Christ every day. As a missionary I have the amazing opportunity to help others strengthen their faith. Studying the scriptures has become a huge part of my life. Studying the scriptures strengthens my testimony and helps me do what is right. I love doing community service. Durring high school my young mens group supplied firewood for a single mom in our ward. It was one of my favorite ways to serve. I have been blessed with some amazing friends that help me live the life that I want to live.
