Hi I'm Cara

Hi! I grew up in southern Idaho. I'm serving a mission for this Church in Vina del Mar, Chile. I've been skydiving. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I finished my freshman year of college at Brigham Young University and have recently been accepted into the BYU College of Nursing. I'm deferring for now to serve a mission in Vina del Mar, Chile. Before going to college I spent time on an internationally traveling American folk dance team. With this team I've attended folk dance festivals in Poland, Spain, Portugal, the Azores, and Turkey. This world is so beautiful and I love traveling so I can see more of it. My other hobbies include reading, music - whether it be listening or practicing (I play the piano, the violin, and a little ukelele), and procrastinating on Pinterest.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know that this Gospel brings joy. I have grown up in a strong LDS family that has helped to teach me to follow the commandments that Heavenly Father has given us and I have witnessed the blessings that come from this. My grandparents converted to this faith with the help of LDS friends and I owe them so much for this. I have a strong testimony that families are forever. My family has experienced terrible loss, but I know that through the ordinances and blessings of this Gospel, the bonds between family members remain after death and that my family will be whole again. I also know that we are the sons and daughters of Heavenly Father, who loves us more than we can imagine. At times it might be hard to recognize this love, but I promise you it is always there. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and that He Atoned for the sins of the world so that we may return to live with our Heavenly Father. I know that we can repent of our sins and if we trust in the Atonement we can be made pure and clean.

How I live my faith

I'm currently serving as a full-time missionary in Viña del Mar, Chile. I pray. I read my scriptures. I try to be a little bit bettery everyday.
