Hi I'm Cardon Merrill

I grew up in Utah. I love serving other people, music, and exercise. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to make other people happy, seeing others smile is what brings joy into my life. I also love music in almost all of its forms. Music is a medium for conveying feelings in a way that words cannot. I am studying Japanese and I am on my LDS service mission, about to leave for Japan. I love my family more than anything in this world, they bring light into my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that Jesus Christ lives. I grew up as a Mormon, but I still needed to gain this knowledge for myself. I have felt the influence of God in my life countless times, and I know that He loves each and every one of us, and I cannot deny it. I am still not even close to perfect, but I am striving to improve daily because this brings me closer to Christ. The closer I am to Christ, the happier I am.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to show others how amazing it is. I am currently a full-time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and I love it. I really love showing others the light that can come from this gospel. Jesus Christ's Gospel is the only thing that can bring true and lasting joy into our lives, and I would be selfish not to share that with others. I teach other people how to come unto Christ and draw closer to Him.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Cardon Merrill
No, Mormons do not only help other Mormons. We all strive to serve anyone that we can. One of the ways we do this is by trying to share the light of Jesus Christ with everyone. I personally strive to help someone else be happier every day of my life, regardless of which religion they are. Show more Show less
