Hi I'm Carly

I'm a Montana cowgirl. Family is my life. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up on a ranch in Montana, so anything outdoors is where I want to be. I love all sports, but basketball and volleyball are my favorites. The most important men in my life are my three brothers and my dad, and my mom is my best friend and role model. I am studying to become a nurse at BYU, but right now I am taking a break to serve as a full-time missionary in the incredibly blessed land of Sweden. My life has been nothing like I expected it would be up until this point, but it's everything that I could have hoped for, and I credit my religion for that.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I can't imagine my life without the knowledge and the happiness that comes from living my religion. I know that I am a daughter of a Heavenly Father who loves me so much that He blessed me with an amazing family and a way to live with them forever. I know that I don't have answers for everything in life, but because of my faith, I also know exactly where I can look to find the answers that I need. I have the Bible, the Book of Mormon, modern-day revelation, and inspired friends and leaders to guide me through the twists and turns of life. I know that this church is true, and that the key to happiness is living by its teachings. I am Mormon, and that is the best decision I have ever made.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to do a little better every day. I am well aware that I am not perfect, but that's okay. I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ are perfect, so if I just try to strengthen my relationship with them, things will always work out. Living my faith is something that I choose to do daily, and it's usually through small things. I choose to pray so that I can thank Heavenly Father for all He has given me and ask for help when I can't do things alone. I choose to read scriptures and apply them in my life. I choose to try to become more Christlike in my thoughts and actions, and even though I don't always succeed, I know that because of Christ's Atonement I can eventually overcome my weaknesses. Living my faith is a daily decision, and there are ALWAYS daily blessings that follow.
