Hi I'm Christian Brett Karras

Hi, I'm Christian! You can call me Elder Karras for the next little bit, I'm serving a mission in Lyon, France, and its awesome!

About Me

I'm 20 years old, and I have lived in Utah for all of my life! It is a great town with many great people, it truly is a special place. Anyway, I have grown up loving both watching and playing football and basketball. I am a die hard Broncos, Utes and Jazz fan. I am a fairly avid musician, I can play guitar piano and drums all well, and i can quickly pick up about any instrument I put my hands on. Music has always been an major factor in my life. It expresses things words can't, and the way it can provoke thoughts and emotions has always fascinated me. As of December 19, 2012, I have been serving a mission in Lyon, France. A mission has been such a great experience, I love having the chance to serve the Lord and my fellow man.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been an active member of this great church for a good chunk of my life. I was born into a great family that loves the Gospel of this church. It has brought countless blessings into my life that I certainly would not have had if I were not a member of this church. I am a mormon because I believe the Mormon church is true in all its doctrines and messages. I have have prayed with sincerity to find in myself the truthfulness of these things. It is why I chose to serve a mission. I am offering 2 years of my life because I love the Gospel and share all the blessings and knowledge that I have to people who haven't had the same opportunity that I have had.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by just simply trying my best to be the best person I can be and follow the teachings of Jesus Christ. I want to be a positive example to others knowing that I am a representative of this great and true Church. My mission is a big way I'm living my faith right now. During my mission, I have learned that God is our loving Father in Heaven, and He wants His children to be as happy as possible through living life following the Gospel of Jesus Christ. There is no other way of life that brings a more complete satisfaction.
