Hi I'm Carrie

I'm your typical fiery welsh girl who loves to sing, I'm a Mormon

About Me

Although I love to sing and perform and do concerts for charity, I'm actually quite shy. I can't work at the moment due to some medical problems, but I am my husband's full-time carer.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are Mormons and I was brought up in a home were gospel principles were taught and lived daily. I chose to be baptized when I was 8. There were some rocky times through my teens but that's when my testimony really grew and matured. I remember being unsure of what I believed in, if anything. I prayed to know if the church was true and if there was a God. I felt like i had no answer and so concluded there must not be a God. Some time later I remember a Sunday morning I chose to stay home while my parents went to church. As I sat alone I felt the spirit confirm to me that there is a God and He loves me and that the church is true. It was like a deeply peaceful feeling that also came with a sense of urgency, and what are you doing here? You know where you should be. I got ready for church and walked there as fast as I could. Through the years I can see the Lord's hand in so many instances of my life. I know He is always looking out for me and looking for ways to bless me. I know He loves each of His children and sent His Beloved Son to atone for our sins and overcome death so we can all have an opportunity to return to Him and be with our families for eternity if we will repent and follow Him and endure to the end. I have been very blessed to have been taught of His gospel my whole life. I am thankful for the joy being a Mormon brings me, for the hope I have in Christ, the fact that I can turn to the Lord for help with anything, and I know He will answer my prayers. I know that I am His daughter and He loves me, and knowing that helps me through the tough times life can throw at me.

How I live my faith

Unfortunately my health conditions can at times prevent me from attending church on a weekly basis, but thankfully there is so much more to being a Mormon than just attending Sunday meetings, I can still study and pray and serve. Over the years I have held several callings that have helped me learn and grow as i have worked with children, youth, and adults and planned activities. The beauty of being a member of the church is that I can always be included and do the simple day to day things that help bring me closer to my Heavenly Father.
