Hi I'm Carly

I'm a geographer from San Francisco. I'm a student who loves concerts and outer space. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I'm Carly! Who I am in one word is "student." There is so much to learn from this beautiful world. I love exploring big cities and learning from the people within. As an 18-year-old I was on a reality TV show in Denmark! I'm obsessed with maps, film, concerts, and outer space. I'm studying Geography and International Development in college. Currently, I'm on an 18 month break from school serving the Lord in Lansing Michigan! It has been the best decision of my life. I love this gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the teachings of Jesus Christ keep me strong and happy in this crazy world. I have found the answers to the biggest questions in life, and I've found them through the gospel. You don't have to be a cookie-cutter person in order to have the gospel apply to you. I think a big part of the Church is teaching ALL OTHERS about these grand answers, and then allowing them to change the world in their own way once they've learned these simple truths of who they are, where they came from, and where they are going. I love this gospel. Nothing has brought me more joy or happiness in my life. I wouldn't trade my faith for anything - not even free unlimited plane tickets or seeing Daft Punk live. That's saying something!

How I live my faith

I've served as a teacher in the church, teaching other women my age. I loved being able to teach, as I was the one who usually needed the lessons the most! I love this gospel, I love my Savior, and I love the pure joy and happiness that being a member of this church has brought me. I live my faith by striving every day to serve others. I am also a full-time missionary right now in the Michigan Lansing Mission! It is INCREDIBLE. Serving the Lord and spreading His word is the best work in the world, because it's HIS work. I love being a missionary,
