Hi I'm Carlee

I'm a missionary, I share my testimony through music, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, serving in the Great California San Fernando Mission, speaking the English language and American Sign Language. I am half-Filipino. I love music, dance, and theater. I share my testimony through singing, and playing the piano. Before my mission I was at Brigham Young University in Provo, UT. My family currently resides in Meridian, Idaho. I am the oldest of 4 children. I love my mission and I love serving the Lord each day here in California. I feel very blessed to have this Gospel in my life, and I want to share it with everyone. I know that this is the only true church on the Earth. I am thankful, especially, for my Savior, my Redeemer, Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I love this church with all my heart. I know that this church is true because I have read the Book of Mormon and felt the Spirit touch my heart. I know that Christ lives and loves all of His children. This church gives me an eternal perspective and a comfort to know that I will be able to live with my family forever. My heart is full of gratitude to my Father in Heaven because of the mercy and forgiveness He gives me daily. I am thankful for the plan of eternal happiness and peace God has given us. I am thankful for my weaknesses, because I have been made stronger through them. There is so much in our lives to be grateful for. I am truly blessed to be a member of this church and I pray that everyone will feel the love their Savior has for them because He loves and knows each and every one of us. The Atonement is real. The power of priesthood is on the Earth. We can indeed live with our families after this life and for all eternity. How incredible a gift that is. I am thankful for my Heavenly Father, Hallowed be His name. And these things I share in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

Showing others charity is one of the ways I live my faith. I love serving others through church activities, with my friends, and with my family. I believe that service is the key to being happy and the key to making others feel loved and cared for. Sacrificing and being obedient to God is another way I live my faith. By keeping my promises with God, and by abiding to His laws I know that I can be protected in an unsure and wavering world. Serving the Lord and having 18 months to purely focus on Him has been incredible thus far. By being an example to others I am becoming perfected in Christ and becoming more like God.
