Hi I'm Kord G. Carpenter

I grew up in Burley Idaho. I love anything about the outdoors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am in love with the outdoors. I love hunting just about anything; waterfowl, upland game, varmints, and predators just to name a few. I also love fishing, where I live there is good bass and trout fishing. I have a Suzuki RMZ450 dirt bike and love to go riding with my friends and family. I like archery. Bowfishing is my favorite thing to do with my bow. I enjoy working with anything in the Agriculture field. I love to get my hands dirty and work doing hands on things. I graduated from High School and then attended a year of college. I am currently serving a mission in Berlin, Germany until June of 2015.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I was fortunate enough to grow up in the church. I was born of goodly parents who love the lord. I have been raised in the gospel, learning to serve the lord and other people. I have lived what I would call a fairly normal life. I have been fortunate enough to not have had to go through any extremely difficult trials. I have been so blessed. I know that all I have and all that I enjoy comes from God. My faith has grown immensely over the years as I have studied the Book of Mormon and Gospel Principles. Since I have started my mission, my faith and conversion to the Gospel has taken a huge leap! I recognize a lot more of the blessings I enjoy and previously took for granted. I am so very blessed to have the gospel in my life. It has blessed me in so many ways and it makes me so happy! I know that Heavenly Father has restored the Gospel through the prophet Joseph Smith. I know my purpose during my life on Earth, and I know that Heavenly Father has a perfect plan for all of his children. His plan makes it possible that everyone can return to him in heaven and live in the Celestial Kingdom for all eternity. It is so comforting and such a blessing to have the Gospel in my life. I know that I will be able to be with my family for time and all eternity through His perfect plan. I would be so lost without the Gospel in my life. That is one of the reasons I decided to serve a mission, so I could make the truthfulness of the Gospel known to all that are seeking the truth, happiness, and comfort the Gospel brings!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving a mission and sharing the gospel with the German people. I also love to share the gospel with friends and family.
