Hi I'm Carley Kramer

I'm a Utah girl that loves to hike and play sports. Family means everything to me, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am 20 years old and the second oldest in a family of five. I love to play sports, I have played volleyball and softball for almost 8 years. Since I am from Utah I love the mountains. Weather it be just going on a drive of hiking, I always want to be there. I am currently serving a full-time mission in the New Jersey Morristown Spanish speaking mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon not only because I was born into this church. I am Mormon because I have put the invitation we are given in the Book of Mormon to use. I found out for myself that the truths I know, and the way I am living is how I can return to live with my Heavenly Father. I am Mormon because there is a plan for me and for you as well to return and live with Him again. I am Mormon because I know that we have a Gospel again on the earth and a true prophet who holds the power and authority to guide the church of Jesus Christ. And for this reason I am serving as a missionary.

How I live my faith

How I live my faith is by living with Christ in my life daily. I am serving an LDS mission so I am preparing myself with daily scripture study and prayer.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Carley Kramer
No, not all Mormons are required to serve a mission. It is highly encouraged, but not required. I believe that it is encouraged for us to go because this is the time that these young missionaries are able to get the most work done for our Savior. For me preparing to serve a mission of my own, I know that something like this needed to be my own decision, and that if i was going to spend 18 months serving I really needed to make sure it was something I can handle. I know that the Jesus Christ has done so much for me that I have no reason not to serve. I know that this church is true and that i need to share the gospel with others. It is not required, but if you are thinking about going pray and read the scriptures to get your answer. Show more Show less
