Hi I'm Caroline

I'm a college graduate. I am married with 3 kiddos. And I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I'm never really quite sure how to respond when someone asks me to tell something about me...I guess I'm a normal person! I grew up in California and served a church mission to the coolest one out there...Rome! When I got home I married the most wonderful man and we have three rascals ages 3, 4, and 6. And in the midst of all that I managed to gain my bachelor's degree in Communications. I love any sport, but since it's baseball season I must mention my undying affection for the Angels! Most importantly however is the love that I have for my Savior and my Heavenly Father. How grateful I am for their never-ending love and constant guidance.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have a testimony of this church and the message that it brings to the world. I have spent countless hours on my knees praying that Heavenly Father would answer my prayers and help me to understand the path that I should go. And I have found that path in this church. I have prayed fervently to know about the truth of the Book of Mormon and have found out for myself that it is the word of God and that's pretty awesome!

How I live my faith

In church I serve as a secretary in the Primary (the kiddos ages 2-12). In fact, I have the great opportunity to serve in all the congregations (we call them wards!) in the town where I live. That means I periodically get to visit 9 separate wards and I organize the baptisms for all the kiddos in these wards. I am so grateful for their wonderful spirit! I'm often taken aback at the closeness these children feel to their Savior...it's pretty amazing to get to see these children make a promise to their Heavenly Father by entering the waters of baptism!

What is the First Vision?

When Joseph Smith was young he saw so many churches and attended as often as he could. Yet, he was perplexed by the fact that they taught conflicting doctrines and wanted to know the truth. So, one day he went to a grove of trees near his house and offered up a sincere prayer wanting to know the truth and Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ appeared to him. As a child I would watch the video of the First Vision and I remember feeling a sense of peace and tranquility wash over me. I didn't know it at the time but now I know that the Holy Ghost was witnessing to me that what I was learning was in fact true. I'm so grateful to know that God has not stopped sending prophets to the earth and He will never stop loving His children. Show more Show less
