Hi I'm Carlton

I grew up in Laie, Hawaii and currently serving a mission in St. George,Utah. I love to bodyboard, eat and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I grew up in a small community full of love and support. I was raised into the LDS religion and used that knowledge to try and live a life how God would want me to. After high school i attended BYU-H and i got to interact with members of the LDS Church from around the world. I got to see and feel the testimonies of others about the church which put me on the path to finding my own testimony of it as well. Now I stand as a missionary serving the Lord in the St. George, Utah mission and I have never been happier!

Why I am a Mormon

The reason I am a Mormon is because I have asked for myself whether these things are true. The knowledge that I have a Savior and the ability to return to my Heavenly Father are things that I have desired for ever since I was a young. The Church has also taught me many incredible principles such as integrity, self-worth, and how to live as happily as possible in a chaotic world. Guidance that not only has brought me joy, but protection both spiritually and physically. I know the church is true. I have for myself gotten on my knees and asked God. I lacked wisdom and he gave me the answer. I encourage all the ask of God if these things are true and they will come the same knowing as me. I share these things with you in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

How I live my faith

One way I live my faith is by serving a mission. It is a choice to go and tell people who may never had the chance to hear about the gospel of Jesus Christ. The other way I try to live my faith is by not just teaching about the church but also trying to be help others whether its service projects or just smiling and saying hello. Helping others not only aids others, but also helped me find who I am and found true joy in doing so.
