Hi I'm Carissa

I grew up in Arizona. I am a convert to the church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

When I was 16 I joined the church. My friends and other church members helped me learn about the gospel and were amazing examples to me. I live in a small town that I absolutely love . I enjoy playing volleyball and I have read more books than I care to count. I am soft spoken at times but will stand up for what I believe in.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know the church is true with all my heart. When I joined the church my family didn't agree with my decision, but I could not deny what I felt and knew to be true. As time has gone by and my testimony has grown my family has seen how happy I am and the strength the gospel has given me. They now accept my decision and support me. The gospel has shown me that I have a purpose and has strengthened my relationship with our savior Jesus Christ. I do have a testimony of this gospel, I now that the Book of Mormon is true. I know that Heavenly Father loves us and wants us to be happy. The Church has brought me more comfort and peace than anything else and I am so thankful for it.

How I live my faith

I love being involved in church activities and teaching others. It helps me to get to know people and feel the spirit. I was recently called to teach the sunbeams which are the three and four year old children. This has been an great experience. They are all so sweet and love to learn new things. All of the amazing people that I am surrounded by are great blessings in my life and make me what to be the best person I can.
