Hi I'm Carli Barlow

I am a singer-songwriter, a college student, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am 19 years old and I love life. My number one passion is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. My number two passion is music! I love to sing, play the guitar and piano, and especially write songs. I recently reached a personal milestone by releasing my first album on Itunes! I hope to be a musician for the rest of my life. I also was a dancer for 16 years- I love to dance. I love hiking and being out doors. I love traveling, especially when I get to relax at a nice beach, explore a beautiful place, or see something old.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know this church is true. I have read the Book of Mormon and have received a strong witness from the Holy Ghost- an overwhelming feeling inside of me- that the Book is true and this Church is Christ's true church on the earth. Such an overwhelming feeling that I knew came from God and that I knew I could never deny. I absolutely love striving towards keeping the commandments of God, life becomes happier when I do- and when I don't, I love the repentance and the cleansing power of Jesus Christ's atonement which helps me feel hole, improve, and strive to be better. I also love the promise that families can be together forever! Knowing that this life is not the end and not the only time I can spend with my loved ones is something that I would have a very hard time living without.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in many ways; including attending church each sunday, reading the Bible or Book of Mormon each day, helping others, trying hard to not judge others, and ultimately trying my best at doing whatever my Father in Heaven would have me do. Almost every month I check in with 3 different women in my area to make sure they are doing alright and to share a spiritual message with them. I also live my faith by spending time with my family, because strong family relationships are a very important part of the gospel!
