Hi I'm Carlee Coulson

I grew up in Boise Idaho. I am a dancer. I'm going to school to become a doctor. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been taking dance lessons ever since I was three years old. I play the flute and the Ukulele. When I was in middle school I was to a national competition for building a robot out of legos (the tournament is called FLL FIRST robotics). I am going to be missionary starting August 10th speaking Spanish in the Arcadia California mission. I have been to a year of college at BYU and will return when I have completed my mission!

Why I am a Mormon

When I live the gospel, I am my best self. And I feel pure joy that you can't experience through anything else. I grew up in the gospel, however that doesn't mean I was truly converted from the get go. I went through many trials and struggles both mental and physical before I gained a true testimony of this gospel. I learned that the Book of Mormon truly the most correct book and a man can become closer to God by abiding by it's precepts than by any other book. Joseph Smith is a true prophet and he gave his life to establishing this church. Thomas S Monson is a true latter day prophet and an amazing man. That's not to say that he is perfect, no one is, but he lives the gospel and continues to learn and lives righteously. He provides revelation for the whole church, his love is that great. Christ loves enough to cut us down. He will give us trials so we can grow stronger He gave his life for us because he loves us and he wanted us to be able to stand blameless before God. After we have done absolutely all that we can do, his grace, the atonement, saves us. My testimony is everything to me.

How I live my faith

I am going to be BYS (Boise Youth Spectacular- picture a shorter EFY) Counselor and help youth grow closer to Christ. I bare my testimony whenever I possibly can because I know this church is true. I visit teach other members in my ward alongside my mom. I try to be an example to my younger and older siblings and try to always live the teachings of the gospel so my life can be a testament of Christ and his teachings.
