Hi I'm Carina

I am from Kaysville, Utah. There are seven people in my family. I love filmmaking and dancing. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I danced ballet for 13 years. I play the piano, violin, and guitar, and I love to sing. Music plays a big part in my life. I am majoring in Cinema Production at Utah Valley University, exploring my love for filmmaking every day. Currently, I am preparing to serve a mission. I have been called to serve in the California, Redlands mission and I couldn't be more excited! My family means the world to me, and I enjoy spending time with them. I love doing spontaneous things with my friends and going on random adventures. One of my favorite things is sour candy. I love being optimistic and having a positive outlook on life.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, but that is not the only reason that I am a Mormon. This gospel brings me so much happiness. Having the holy ghost and being able to feel the spirit is such a huge blessing in my life. I love that I can communicate with my Heavenly Father anytime, and he will always listen and answer my prayers. I know that He loves each and every one of us, and if we live by His teachings then we will be able to live with Him again and obtain eternal happiness. I know that the Book of Mormon is true, and reading it brings me closer to my Heavenly Father and provides answers to my prayers. My Savior Jesus Christ can help me change and become who he wants me to be. I love this gospel with all my heart, and I know that it is true.

How I live my faith

I go to church every sunday, read my scriptures daily, and pray sincerely to my Heavenly Father every morning and night. I am preparing to serve the Lord as a full-time missionary for the church, and plan to preach the gospel to His children. I have been called to the California, Redlands mission and cannot wait to introduce the people of California to the joy and happiness that this gospel can provide.

In whom should we have faith?

We should put our faith and trust in God, our loving Heavenly Father, and his son, Jesus Christ. God is forever, unchanging, and his ultimate desire is for us, His children, to be happy. Having that knowledge helps me to have faith in Christ and His gospel, because nothing else in this world is the same yesterday, today and forever. Nothing else will bring us true and lasting happiness, than putting our complete faith and trust in God and keeping his commandments. Show more Show less
