Hi I'm Karsen Knaras

I grew up in Utah. I served a mission in Richmond Virginia. I love music. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love doing service for others. It brings me so much joy to help others that are struggling. I love being a missionary. Serving the Lord has brought me and my family so much joy. I love to spend time with my family. I love to sing and dance. Performing Arts are my favorite. I love to watch musicals and sing along with them especially Disney movies.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church. I spent the first 17 years of my life just basing my testimony on my parents testimony. I prayed to find out the Book of Mormon was true,if Joseph Smith was called as a prophet, and I received a very strong answer to my prayer. I have found my own testimony. My testimony has grown so much. "A Testimony is found in the baring of it." I share my testimony as often as I can because this is the One true church. The church of Jesus Christ. That same church that was on the earth when Christ was here which was lost after His death and the death of the Apostles, it is once again restored on the Earth in the day and time never to fall again. If I am going to be a member of a church it will be the true church. I know that this is true. Our Heavenly Father lives and has a physical body. Jesus Christ lives and loves us. He suffered and died for us. He has that perfect love for us. When we are struggling in life we can find peace through Christ's Atonement. God answers our prayers, it may not come right away or in the way we think it should come. God knows us personally and knows what we need and what we are going through.

How I live my faith

I am serving a mission for the church currently. I live my faith by sharing my testimony to all the people that I can. Those sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father. I try to be an example to others. "Be thou an example of the believers." 1 Timothy 4:12. I really enjoy doing service. I have felt the love of the Savior in my life I desire for all those I meet to feel His love and find a testimony of Him and His Atonement.
