Hi I'm Carina

I grew up in Snowflake Arizona. I'm a mother of three and love spending time with my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to read, dance, bake, craft, and spend time outside enjoying nature. I married and the mother of three active little boys ages 5, 2, and 5 months. We love biking, walking, camping and playing outside together as a family. My husband and I are both college students and working hard to make ends meet, but we see the blessings of the Lord in our lives every day.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have a testimony of the power of the Priesthood and continuing revelation given to the Prophet of the Church. I am a Mormon because the Savior,Jesus Christ is at the center of all that we do. He leads and guides this Church through our living prophet. Being a Mormon helps me continue to strive to be a better person each day by serving and loving those around me. It brings me peace and happiness in this life and a knowledge of better things to come.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing my best to treat others with kindness and respect. I strive to teach my children to have faith in our Savior Jesus Christ and follow his example by being kind as well. We enjoy the blessings of the temple and the peace we feel there. Though my boys are not old enough to go in, we enjoy the temple grounds and talk often of the Lord's house and the amazing blessings that are found there. I live my faith through striving each day to repent of my mistakes and do better to come closer to my Heavenly Father and my Savior. It is not easy, but I have faith that slowly He will help me become the person I want to be.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

The earth is full of beautiful creations: flowers, plants, animals. I cannot look at the beautiful mountains, lakes, or sunsets without recognizing that it all had to come from somewhere. The night sky and the organization of the planets that revolve around the sun. Our bodies with wonderful healing capabilities and the amazing way all of our cells, organs and systems work together to keep us living and breathing,it all reminds me there is a God. But even more amazing are the personal experiences that show me that He is in the very details of my life, all of the answers to prayers and the feelings of love and comfort when I need them most remind me that He cares and is a God of miracles.
