Hi I'm Carla

I'm from Austin. I like cats. I wear fishing shirts. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a student studying Therapeutic Recreation. I love trying anything once and have recently just picked up skiing. I enjoy running, hiking, boating and petting animals. I am the baby of four and absolutely love my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was investigating The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints consistently for a few years in high school. I was out of town and missed church that Sunday. The next Sunday, I remember sitting in the pew feeling at home and thinking...wow I really missed being at church. I was happy to be there. The next thing I remember was a Sister Missionary sharing her testimony and saying, "If you miss something, you know it is true." I've continued to strive for a stronger relationship with my Father in Heaven and my Savior, Jesus Christ, because honestly it makes me happy. Getting to know them better really has changed me and continually does. Just like any relationship it can progress and that is what I love. I don't know them perfectly, but what I do know about them makes it all worth it. I love them.

How I live my faith

I just try and get to know God better. I strive to do what he asks and I just really love talking to him.
