Hi I'm Carson

I'm a Latter-Day Saint that grew up in Las Vegas, mostly in North Las Vegas, and I'm ready to serve my mission in Colombia!

About Me

One of my favorite interests in education is rhetoric, the ability to persuade, and I want to go into a career of speech writing or law. Right now though, I take many AP classes at Mojave High, and am busy with my studies. I play only two video games, Super Smash Bros and League of Legends, and if you think you can beat me at Smash, you're wrong. Also, seminary starts at 7:30 for me! I either want to go to BYU-I or Purdue, and I'm going to Colombia Cali for my mission.

Why I am a Mormon

The reason why I am a Mormon is because I have came to discover that the gospel is restored through this church. I had difficulty believing in any other church, because I know of no accounts of God presiding on the Earth when Jesus was crucified, and then all of his apostles were martyred. That's when I decided to find if the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was true, because like me, we both believed God's gospel was lost, and that no current church had the true power of God, which Mormons call the Priesthood. I read the Book of Mormon through and through, and following Moroni's advice, that I must pray to determine that the Book of Mormon is true, I recieved revelation, just as promised, that the Book was true. That meant to me that the Mormon church was entirely correct, and I've devoted my life to serve God and His children, and I only want to share this glad message, that Jesus lives, and His truth and power is restored.

How I live my faith

I'm a leader in the Young Men's, and I typically plan the activities. I also go around from ward to ward delivering speeches that teach how one can become more like Jesus Christ, and I try to to teach as He would. I read the scriptures every day, and I always help the other youth with questions about our faith. I love to go out and help the missionaries whenever I can.

What is the priesthood?

Carson
The Priesthood is God's power given to his children. This authority has existed with all of His prophets, from Adam to Jesus's last apostle. It's also within the Book of Mormon, from Nephi all the way to Moroni. This power is important because anything done with this power allows eternal covenants to be made in our mortal life. This power is not our own, yet it gives us the authority to act in God's name. Those who hold the priesthood are expected to live worthily and live as He would. Show more Show less
