Hi I'm Carroll

I'm a storyteller, I'm a Maine-iac, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I served in the Korean war in the 187th airborne RCT (regimental Combat Team). I married a beautiful Irish girl from Lawrence MA in November of 1952. We have three wonderful sons, 10 grandchildren, and 7 great-grandchildren. I love classic cars (my wife says better than her). I love to tell stories about the old days and I write snail mail. That's all folks.

Why I am a Mormon

Because I believe that there is only one true church on the Earth, and that it is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I believe all churches have truth, but not the complete truth. I was tracted into by the Mormon missionaries in September of 1942. We listened to their lessons and were converted in a matter of months. I was very impressed with the churches' Law of Health-the Word of Wisdom, which includes abstaining from tea, coffee, alchohol, tobacco and illegal drugs. The doctrine of Eternal Marriage impressed me a great deal as well. I'm glad for the blessings that being baptized in a lake in Sanford Maine has brought me and my family, and I am glad for this chance to follow Jesus Christ and have a personal relationship with him. I can't express all the joy that has entered my life because of the church. The End.

How I live my faith

To the best of my ability. Every Sunday I enjoy coming to church and serving the Lord and others through my various callings in the church. Currently I am the Sunday School President, which means that I am responsible for making sure that the classes all have teachers and are taught correctly. I also go out with the missionaries on a regular basis and share the joy that I have found through the gospel. My wife and I served a welfare mission in Lowell, MA serving the Cambodian people.
