Hi I'm Karlee

I grew up in San Diego. I live in Rexburg. I am a college student. I am a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Karlee. I am from San Diego, California and I'm preparing to serve a mission in Houston Texas. I am currently a student at BYU-Idaho. I love it here! It's a wonderful school with a wonderful spirit. I love spending time with my friends and family and trying new things. Most importantly, I love this gospel and my savior, Jesus Christ, with all my heart.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know this is the only true church on the Earth. I have read the Book of Mormon and tested Moroni's promise at the end. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and the word of God. I often tell people, "When you know the Book of Mormon is true, nothing else matters." Once I gained my own personal testimony of the Book of Mormon, nothing else was nearly as important as my relationship with my Heavenly Father. The standards that the church has, have kept me happy, healthy and strong. I love that the church has taught me how to seek direction from the Lord. My life has been blessed immensely because I have sought direction from the Lord and tried my best to be faithful.

How I live my faith

As I am preparing to serve a mission, I have been immersing myself in the scriptures daily. I can definitely see a difference in my life. I am happier and things go better when I am being obedient and faithful. I always pray before, during, and after I read my scriptures. Each day, I set aside this special time for the Lord so that I can converse with Him and further my knowledge of the scriptures. I treasure this part of my day. I am constantly asking the Lord what I can do better and how I can help others. It's a true blessing in my life.
