Hi I'm Caroline

I grew up in Virginia, and played lacrosse throughout high school. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a convert to the church, and I converted when I was 16 years old. I played lacrosse in high school. I am leaving for my mission June 1st, and I'm going to the Rancagua Chile mission. I attended my first year of college at Dixie State University. I am one of eight siblings, and I am also a triplet.

Why I am a Mormon

I went to church for about five years before I finally decided to convert. I have noticed a change in my life. Being apart of the church has made me incredibly happy. I can see the change of happiness in my life. When ever I have a worry, concern, issue, problem, or anything any emotion I can talk to my Heavenly Father through prayer. I know that this is the true church, and that Thomas S. Monson is the prophet.

How I live my faith

Right now I currently have two callings I am a family home evening leader, and a family history coordinator. What I do for family home evening is I have a partner, and we are in charge of a group and have meetings ever Monday. Some days we do it with the entire ward and other weeks we just do small groups. For family history is if someone needs help with learning about their family or finding members in their family I help them. We also schedule days to go to the temple as a ward.

What are Mormon temples used for?

Mormon temples are the most sacred structures on earth. Once you are 12 and baptized and worthy you are able to go and preform baptisms for the dead. Then once you are spiritually and mentally ready you receive sacred ordinances. The first time you enter the temple you enter for yourself, and every time after that you do the sacred ordinances for someone who has already passed in this life who did not have the chance to receive the ordinances. Another important thing is you are able to learn eternal truths. Show more Show less
