Hi I'm Darla Carlisle

My name is Darla Carlisle. I have been a teacher for 30 years in several locations. I was born in Nampa Idaho.

About Me

I love teaching. I grew up with six children in our family. I have two of my own children and eight grandchildren. They are a blessing to me. I love watching sports and playing with the children. I play piano but not that great. I love to sing and I used to be a soloist in my younger years.

Why I am a Mormon

I belief in the gospel and love to learn about it. I love the Lord and know this is his church so I want to be obedient and follow his commandments so I can live with my Savior again someday. I also want to be with my family and I can through Heavenly Father's plan. I love feeling the sweet Spirit when I go to church and partake of the sacrament. This is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I go to church each Sunday. I have been a primary president four times and a young women president. I have taught Sunday School and primary. I was the ward music leader in Spain for five years.

Who was Joseph Smith?

Darla Carlisle
He is the first prophet in our church. He was able to receive the revelation from God the Father in person. He was a humble man who was able to receive this revelation at the age of 14 after seeking the truth on which church was true. God the Father appeared to him and told him none of them were true. Later on he was able to receive the golden plates and translate them into the Book of Mormon which is our cornerstone of our church now. Show more Show less
