Hi I'm Carissa

I love swimming, hiking, playing the piano, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love being outside. Every spring I hike slot canyons with my family. I love music. I have played piano for several years, and enjoy sharing my musical talents with other. I am currently attending a University in hopes of furthering my education. I have three crazy nephews, an adorable new niece, three siblings, two wonderful parents, and I love them.

Why I am a Mormon

I didn't have a specific experience that helped me come to the knowledge that this is the true church. Little things like feeling the spirit, doing ordinances in the temple, and having my prayers answered have strengthened my testimony over time. Every time I pray God answers my prayers. I record these experiences in my journal so I can recall how much he blesses me. I am incredibly blessed to have the opportunity to pray to my Father in Heaven who loves me so much. I know that I am not perfect but I know that my Savior Jesus Christ paid the price for my sins. He suffered on the cross for all of us so that we can repent and live with Him again. I know that the family is central to God’s plan. I love God and I know that this is his church so I will continue to serve him in whatever way I can.

How I live my faith

I am a student at BYU and being at college is a big change. I know that even though my life is changing God is with me always. Whenever I feel alone or unsure I pray and find comfort. I love to serve others, it is one of the best ways to show God my gratitude for all that he has given me.
