Hi I'm Carson

I'm a brother, a son, a servant to my God... and I love being a Mormon!

About Me

I graduated from high school in 2013 and I am currently serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the Madagascar Antananarivo Mission speaking the Malagasy language. I was in student council in high school and also played tennis for the school! I love fishing and fly fishing more than anything! I also love mountain biking and hiking and am overall an outdoors person. Along with that I enjoy hunting deer with my dad and brother and going on camping trips. Along with all of that I love going to church and learning the true gospel of Jesus Christ!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the true church because it has changed my life from a bad place to a good one. I have been blessed so greatly by the Lord and have been given a second chance in my life through repentance which is given to all nations through the atonement of our Savior Jesus Christ. I know this church is true because I can feel it through the gift of the Holy Ghost which was given to me at my baptism. I have felt and enjoyed the many blessings of membership in the church and have a knowledge that our prophets are true and only speak truth and speak of the messages our Lord needs to get across to us. I know that Joseph Smith was chosen to bring the true church back to the Earth and also restored the gospel and the priesthood. I have been able to gain my testimony through faith, prayer, and scripture study and know that anyone else who seeks the truth will find it and find that this church is a loving a true church and that we have the fullness of the gospel restored to us. And these things I say in the name of my beloved Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.

How I live my faith

Never in my life have I found more joy and comfort than by living by my faith in this church. I strive to do what is right at all times in my life, and though I am not a perfect person by any means at all, I find comfort in knowing that Jesus Christ, my redeemer and the worlds redeemer, has saved me by atoning for the sins of the world and that is what keeps me going; knowing that I am made perfect through Christ! I attend church every Sunday to try and increase my knowledge of the gospel because there is always something new for me to learn, I then take the new knowledge I learn and try and apply it into my everyday life to try and become more like our Savior Jesus Christ who has set the perfect example for us. I strive to follow the commandments of the Lord and try to follow the prophets of this church, who are called for God, and in doing this I am filled with the Holy Spirit and feel the love and comfort of our God. I try to magnify my calling as a priesthood holder in this church by serving others diligently and try to become better everyday and strengthen my weaknesses by living in my faith that I know this church is true and that Christ loves us all and wants us to succeed in this life and will help us in anyway as long as we ask for and seek the help we need and this has truly made me a stronger person and has blessed my life so greatly! I am also striving to increase my faith each day because this is how we gain a confidence in the Lord's promises to bless our lives.
