Hi I'm Carissa

I am a student and daughter. I love God and my Savior. I am a Mormon.

About Me

Hey I'm Carissa! Right now I am a poor college student just trying to get by haha. I love being independent and trying new things. I played soccer growing up and love being active. I can't sing or act but am nerd for old musicals. I believe that what you put into things, is what you get out of them and that happiness is a choice. Being a member of this church has makes a better, happier person and I am so grateful for it!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because living and believing the things I have been taught brings me so much peace and happiness. I LOVE being a member because I honestly feel so close to God and Christ. I know they love me and all of their children so much. My faith helps me to build a close relationship with them and gives me a better perspective on my life and purpose. I can find answers and explanations to why hard things happen and not become bitter.

How I live my faith

This gospel has given me an incredible amount of confidence. Growing up, I was one of few members in my community which made me really scared to speak up about my beliefs. It wasn't until I had almost graduated High School, that I learned that when I relied on the Lord and let Him help me when I was unsure of myself or scared, I could overcome those feelings and be confident. I live my faith by trying to be a righteous example everyday, no matter how awkward the situation, and letting God guide me. It can be scary at times, but God knows my abilities and weaknesses and I can trust that He wouldn't put me in a situation I can't handle.
