Hi I'm Austin

I am a college football fanatic, I love sports, I am a full time missionary in DC, my name is Austin Carroll, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

Hi, my name is Austin and I was recently called to be a full time missionary. I am serving for the next two years in the Washington DC North Mission. I grew up in Utah for most of my life and am from Draper, Utah. I recently graduated high school where I played football and was involved with multiple service organizations and business clubs. I put off college for two years while I serve my mission here in DC. When I get home I will enroll at BYU where I am hoping to study business with an emphasis on Marketing. After college I am wanting to go into multi-media marketing for a career.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this gospel has brought me guidance and peace when I have needed it the most. Life is hard, but without the knowledge of the gospel it is even harder. As Elder Cook says, "This life isn't easy, nor was it meant to be". We learn and grow from those hard times in our life and with the gospel we can find guidance in those hard times we will all fall on. I am a Mormon because I believe that our Father in Heaven has a plan for each and every one of us and through this gospel I can learn more and more about his plan for me everyday. And I know that through Jesus Christ we can do all things, all those times we mess up in life can be made right. As we build up our personal faith in Christ we can truly do all things.

How I live my faith

I am living my faith by accepting the call to serve as a full time missionary to serve and teach the people of DC and the Maryland area. While I am here I am a representative of Jesus Christ and will be a minister of the gospel. I strive to live my faith everyday in the way I treat others and the example I try to set, with or without a missionary tag on we can be examples of what we believe at all times.
