Hi I'm Carolyn Webber

I was raised half on the East Coast and half in the West. I am a writer and a dancer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a student of journalism and write every day of my life. I grew up Irish and Scottish/Highland dancing and love the culture there, as well as all other cultures. This has led me to many countries with dreams of visiting and learning more. I live in the outdoors- running, biking, swimming, climbing, exploring, and many other activities.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised as a Mormon. I grew up attending church every Sunday with my family, but I had to learn myself what it was to be a member. Living in Connecticut, I was one out of my entire school. In Utah, people seemed to expect that I was a Latter-Day Saint. This might seem easier, but I couldn't borrow all these peoples' testimonies. I learned through trial and error what it means to be a disciple of Christ. Looking back, I remember how I felt while going through the actions with no heart behind it. Being a member simply makes me happier and I am in a better place when I'm speaking with my Heavenly Father and trying to develop Christlike traits. I know that this is the true church on the earth and that the Book of Mormon is the foundation of our religion. I know Joseph Smith was a prophet and that God cares about us today as he has forever, which is why we have modern-day prophets and revelation. I know temples are houses of God and standing in holy places such as this can provide a taste of the eternal joy waiting for us if we endure. I love the gospel and I love my brothers and sisters in this world. I know Heavenly Father loves me and everyone and it brings him happiness when we can follow his spirit and serve one another.

How I live my faith

I am a member of a young single adult ward and serve in the compassionate service committee, reaching out and checking up on my other sisters. We all live fairly close to each other, so I visit my sisters in the ward when I can and try to bring along a message.
