Hi I'm Carilee

I was born in Oregon and grew up in a Mormon family. I graduated from BYU and I am a full time wife, mother and grandmother.

About Me

My father was an educator and we moved several times when I was young. I graduated from High School in Asia and loved my experiences there. After graduating in Food Science and Nutrition, I became a stay at home mom of 6, occasionally teaching dance classes in our home. I love to read, sew and travel---though I haven't done much since I married. I have 10 Grandchildren who I love.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a member of the church and have loved the gospel all my life. I am especially drawn by the doctrine that we can be with our families forever, even after death. That life continues and will be much better then. I love my family and truly desire that blessing in our lives.

How I live my faith

I have worked in many organizations in the church and enjoyed all the opportunities to serve. The people I've worked with have become some of my dearest friends. I recently was President of our ward Primary---the organization for children--and truly enjoyed getting to know all those sweet young souls. I am now beginning a stay at home mission for our church, where my husband and I hope to help in our area in various kinds of service.
