Hi I'm Gloria carreon

I grew up in Idaho. I am an avid reader. I am a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Gloria Carreon. I am from Idaho and I love to read. My family and my brothers are my best friends, I love spending time with them and having a good time. We always find something fun to do and are looking for ways to enjoy this life we've been given. Not only do I love my family, I love the friends I have made and the things I've learned. School is a top priority for me and I plan to go into nursing. But at the moment, I am a full-time missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints serving in California because I know that the friends, family, and experiences I've had have been because of the true restored church of Jesus Christ. This life is meant to be enjoyed and lived to its fullest!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because there has been nothing in my life that has given me as much joy as the Gospel has. Everything I have I owe to the church. I have loving and caring parents because they strive to live the Gospel. I have amazing siblings that do their best to be kind and loving, or as kind and loving as siblings can be, because they too strive to live the Gospel. I have met incredible people because of the church. I have been taught time and time again of the power of charity and hard work because of the church. The stories found in The Book of Mormon add a perspective that no other book can give me. The hymns of the church provide a reverence that is also hard to find. I find peace in knowing I have a loving and just Heavenly Father who loves me and all of His children so much that He gave us a chance to live with Him again. I have a Savior and Redeemer, Jesus Christ, who atoned for my sins. I have a fighting chance every day to do what is right. Not only what is right for me but also what is right for those around me. I am a member of this church because it gives me purpose. I makes this life something worth living for. It isn't just some state of being where I die and that's it. It is a state of everlasting living. A way of life that never ends. That's the life I want to live. That's the life I know I can live with this Gospel. I am a Mormon because I want to live my life to the fullest and I have seen time and time again that this church and this Gospel is the way to do it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing the best that I can with what I am given. I didn't grow up in a house with a lot of money but I grew up in a house with parents that loved each other and that loved my siblings and me. Because they showed me what true love is, I was able to see it clearly in my church leaders as well and strive to be like them. I am a Sunday School teacher. I have been in a couple of church callings and I love them because they are always teaching me to push myself spiritually, emotionally, and mentally.
