Hi I'm Karnell

I was born and raised in Utah. I worked for the state of Utah and I am now retired.

About Me

I have been happily married for 52 years. I am a father of six children and I have 21 grandchildren. I worked for the state of Utah for 38 years. I enjoy camping, gardening, stamp collecting. I have a unique hobby of collecting keys. I have a key to a city in Guatemala that I was given while serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in that country. I love to travel and I have traveled from coast to coast and border to border in the United Sates Guatemala that I was given while serving a mission in that country. I love to travel and I have traveled from coast to coast and border to border in the United States of America with my family. When I was younger I learned to fly in a single engine aircraft. I have hiked to the top of Kings Peak which is the highest point in the state of Utah. I have hiked down the Zion Narrows in Zion National Park multiple times.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe in following the teachings of Jesus Christ and obeying the commandments found in the scriptures. I believe the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the same church Jesus Christ founded when he was here on earth, restored by Joseph Smith through revelation from God. I enjoy learning about Jesus teaching, and the fellowship of other members. Being a Mormon has made me a better person.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following the teachings given to us by Jesus Christ through the scriptures. I attend church each Sunday and activities during the month. I have daily prayer and give service to those in need, our neighbors, friends and family. I pay an honest tithe and pay fast offerings.

What is the priesthood?

Karnell
I have used the power given by Jesus Christ to those who hold the priesthood to bless my wife and my children. I have used the power of the priesthood to bless other members of the church and people in the community. This power is sacred to me and I have used it only with faith and wisdom. Show more Show less
