Hi I'm Jaxon Carter

I was born in Provo, Utah and moved to Idaho Falls, Idaho. I enjoy riding motorcycles with my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy being around my family, being active in any way, shape, or form. I enjoy basketball and love the game. I ride dirtbikes any time I can. I enjoy serving others and making them laugh. I do not just like sitting around I like to go out and do something and feel accomplished. I am serving a two year mission to Peru. The Lima East mission. It is spanish speaking so I am very excxited to learn another language and be around the wonderful people of Peru. I am so blessed to have this opportunity.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I want to be. It is a constant want and need for his love and the only way I have filled that void is by reading the scriptures, going to church, and learning and gaining a testimony. I was born into the church but that honestly means nothing because no one is ever fully converted because we are no perfect and so we must never stop learning and doing better because there will always be rroom for improvement. At age 14 I had so many doubts about this church and it was hard for me because I lacked faith. I finally prayed and asked for help because I didn't know what to do. I recieved an answer and it changed my life. I realized how could it not be true? Everything fits together perfect and just works. I know this church is true and is the only true church and I am willing to give two years of my life for it now because of my faith and my testimony. It has changed my life in ways I never thought of. I know Jesus Christ is my Saviour and never will I be able to repay him, but I can live my life in a way he would see as I should. I am so thankful for this gospel and don't know where I would be without it.

How I live my faith

I have held leadership positions all through out my church years. I have been taught the importance of readiness and willing to serve at a moments notice. It is one of the iggest things I have gained and learned and from these experinces I will be helped and blessed in Peru. My father and I home teach families and many times we have helped them out or gone over late to bless a sick family member. I wouldn't trade those experiences and time spent with my pops for anything.
