Hi I'm Carlie

I love history, teaching, writing, and playing board games with family and friends. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a BYU student who wants to become a history teacher. There's something magical about connecting what happened in the past with what is happening today. I love reading about all kinds of different places, times and people. I also love learning about new technology and how it impacts business. I enjoy seeing the relationships that social media brings. In my free time, I like riding my bike, skiing, softball and spending time with friends. My favorite kind of entertainment is theater, though I can't act or sing to save my life :)

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I gained a testimony of the truthfulness of the Church as I grew up. Having a family that is committed to the gospel helped me to learn the truth, but I still needed to be converted and know for myself. My testimony has come as I've participated in Church youth activities, read the scriptures, attended church, prayed, and served. I want to continue following Jesus Christ because I love him and I've found happiness in His gospel.

How I live my faith

I live my faith as I attain an education, serve in church groups, volunteer in schools and try to be kind to everyone I meet. I'm about to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in New Mexico because I want to share the happiness I've found with other people.
