Hi I'm Carson Nielsen

I grew up in Idaho but for now I am a missionary serving in the Australia Sydney North Mission!

About Me

I grew up in Idaho. I was raised in the church but I have found my own testimoney of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am a full time missionary and in my free time I love to ride dirt bikes, be out on the lake, or hitting the slopes with friends!

Why I am a Mormon

I choose to be a Mormon because I want to fulfill my purpose and to live with my family and our Heavenly Father again! The church helps me do this by teaching me the gospel; it gives me light and direction to this life by teaching me of our life before and our life after death. The church helps me, to help others. With out the church we cannot have all of Christ's blessings that he has promised us through this gospel. I know in my heart and in my soul that our Heavenly Father loves us, I know that he sent his son Jesus Christ who is my savior and redeemer so that we can have a purpose here on earth. I know this church is true with all my heart and I invite you to come closer to Christ as I have.

How I live my faith

I spread the word of the gospel to everyone who is willing to listen. I am happy to help everyone to the very best of my abilities. I live trying to follow Christ's example! I try to follow Christ by living the gospel, keeping our heavenly Fathers commandment, and by serving others.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Carson Nielsen
Family is the stronghold of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints! The family is where we find love, peace, comfort, and direction for the difficult choices that persistently come with the influences of the world. The family is so important to us because we believe that God is our eternal Father in heaven, and that we are all brothers and sisters. In the Church of Jesus Christ you find that we are one big family, we look after each other, support each other, and love one another. I have found the same love, peace, comfort, and direction in the church as I found in my home. The family is so important to Mormons because, when we feel that love, peace and comfort, we find the direction to our Savior Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
