Hi I'm Karli LaPoint

I do hair, nails, and calligraphy. I am serving a mission in Toronto, Canada. And I am a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 22 and am currently a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am serving in Toronto, Canada! I have decided to sacrifice a small year and a half of my life to serve the Lord and teach his words. Back at home in Salt Lake City Utah, I am a hairstylist and nail technician. I also do signage for weddings and businesses. I love dogs, watching movies, going on adventures and pretending that I know how to play the guitar. I am the youngest of 6 and have 16 nieces and nephews. Its always a party and I love my family more than anything.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in this faith. My mother was born into the LDS religion and my father was not. My dad was raised Catholic. He was dating my mom when he invited the missionaries over for dinner. She had no clue and was surprised. They visited with them, fed them and discussed the church. My dad fell in love with the family focus and wanted to learn more. He then was baptized soon after on Valentines Day 1988 and my parents were then sealed a year later in the Salt lake temple. I was then born 5 years later! I love this church and am grateful for the peace, love, and friendship it brings into my life.

How I live my faith

I go to church regularly. Every Sunday for the three full hours. I love every minute, even on fast Sunday when my stomach wants to eat itself!!

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Karli LaPoint
The Lord taught us to go out and speak the word two by two. When we go out to teach others, its to invite others to come unto Christ by helping them recieve the resotored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and his atonement, repentance, baptizm, recieving the gift of the holy ghost and enduring to the end. And by proselyting, we are able to acheive this goal that the Lord has set for us to do. Females serve for 18 months and males serve for 2 years. Show more Show less
