Hi I'm Charlotte

I grew up in Salt Lake City. I play lacrosse. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah. I played lacrosse in high school and college and absolutely love it! I enjoy being a part of a team and working toward a common goal. I finished my freshman year in college, I am working toward becoming a nurse. I am going to serve a mission for the LDS church in Canada.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because Jesus Christ has saved me. There are so many challenges in life, some are so hard, that I don't see how I would be able to continue without the knowledge that there is a God who loves me and especially that I will see my loved ones again. My mother passed away when I was eight years old. I miss her so much, and it is really hard to carry on without her here. But I am able to carry on because I know that I will be with my mother again. I am able to pray to God every day, and I have come to know that He hears me, and He answers my prayers. It is because of the love that He offers me that I am able to know that I can make it, that this life is a beautiful gift, and that I will be with my mom again. Being a Mormon brings lasting peace and happiness that can be found in no other way.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being a part of the community. Every week the church has activities for the young adults, usually on Monday nights. They are so much fun, anything from watching a movie to going ice skating, and I make sure to attend them every week. I also live my faith by doing my best to keep what I teach consistent with how I live. I pray to God every day. My communication with Him is so important to me. It's the first thing I do when I wake up and it's the last thing I do before I go to bed at night. Everyday I read from the scriptures. Most important, I strive to live the way that Jesus Christ lived. I want to be like Him. This means being kind, serving others, offering forgiveness, helping others to come to know God.
