Hi I'm Carl

I grew up in a small lakeside town of 150 people. I have since moved to a larger city. I am a father and a husband.

About Me

I am a big baseball fan. I love to fish. I am working on an accounting degree. I have a twin brother and we married Identical twin sisters. Only in Utah right? Just kidding. I have two beautiful daughters. We have since tried to have other children but instead have had a number of failed pregnancies. Still I do not doubt the Lord or his plan for me and my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a Mormon, but that is not why I am a Mormon today. I, through myself and own experiences, have come to know that this church is true. I have a great love for the Savior and strive earnestly to do everyday what he wants me to do. I believe in living prophets and have a strong testimony of Joseph Smith the prophet. I am glad to be a Mormon, it has truly made my life happy. It makes me a better father, a better husband, a better member of my community. I am grateful for the Love God and Jesus give me, and I am glad to Love them.

How I live my faith

I currently serve my ward by teaching the Deacons, the age 12-13 year old boys. I also serve in the Boy Scouts of America program. I enjoy the boys and their enthusiasm for life and am glad to serve among them.

Can you tell me about Mormon customs: how you dress for church, what holidays you celebrate, etc.?

Some may say that Mormons are culturally the same as others. Not so. We do not drink alcohol or even tea, and coffee. We abstain from drugs, immodest dress, and activity on Sundays. There is also a complete sub-culture for Mormons, we are just different because of how we choose to live our lives. But it is a good different. Show more Show less
