Hi I'm Carly R Phillips

I have been a member all my life. I was born in Provo,but have lived many places.

About Me

I have learned alot about faith. I like Nephi was born to goodly parents. I have lived a number of places in my life as early as 6 yrs old. However unlike or perhaps like Nephi have experienced trials effecting my health.Though his not like mine. I don't often speak of it, but if it would help someone else I can tell you I have had a mental illness since 16. I was fortunate at 21 to get my endowments. When I wished to do so I was at a church school and it was not common for someone not getting married, or mission etc I had to talk my Stk pres this was right for me then- I did not know if a spouse was in the wings for me later but knew I did not want my illness to get in my way of blessings of the temple and I was able to go. At 25 I met my now husband, I married him at 27 in the Washington DC temple. He is Welsh. I lived in England with him till I got ill- a very trying time of my faith, and the faith of my family. Now being well for a bit, I have never asked Why me? I cant say the whole story here. But it touched me so much that so many people I knew prayed and fasted for me- even those who were not of my faith. I include this because it is part of my life and who I am but not everything I am, I am a online tutor, I like reading,creating, mysteries, crafting also..

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the church because it its the only church which fulfills for me what I want in a religion. Based on my experiences I have had plenty of times which I could of doubted, could of fallen away. I choose not to. I have felt happiness, though not without trials through being a a member. I dont wonder what lies ahead for me when I die, I may not know alot about that time but I dont fear it, and I know my loved ones are there who have gone on before. I know Christ is my Savior, I know God is my Father who loves me. Everything I have wanted majorly in life I have been given, sometimes they took time but did happen. I know being a faithful member is why.

How I live my faith

I am new in my ward, but I have taught in Primary before. I grew to love teaching children the gospel. I cannot have children in this life- so I enjoy having the chance to bless other childrens lives.

What is the role of the husband and the wife in the family?

Carly R Phillips
I think that the role of the husband and wife can vary depending on circumstances, depending on if you can have children or not. If you cannot I think it is important to develop the same love you have for each other as you would if you can have children. Each of you are equal, neither is greater than one another. The home should be a place even if there is only two of you that the Spirit is always welcome. Show more Show less
