Hi I'm Charlotte

I grew up in Connecticut. I love Spanish food. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I just finished my freshman year of college. I am still deciding a major but I know I like math. While home from school, I have been working at a flower shop in my home town. In my free time I like to be outside hiking or running or, inside, watching Netflix. I also enjoy going to New York City with my friends and exploring new restaurants.

Why I am a Mormon

I am not a Mormon because I was born into the church. Yes, technically, I grew up a Mormon but my personal conversion began when I was at the end of middle school, it was time for me to decide for myself. I started to take notes and pay closer attention to my feelings when I was hearing a good message or sitting in church. I am Mormon because with this gospel I have had overwhelming feelings of love, peace, comfort and security that have been instrumental in my life and my life decisions. I have experienced the happiest moments in my life because of the simple messages; that we are loved by a supreme being and that I have been sent to this Earth at this time to fulfill a calling to walk in the path of Jesus Christ. If I wasn't Mormon I would be lost.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being an example to my younger siblings. I am the oldest of six and I know that my siblings are watching me. I try to show them why it is important to go to church and participate in church activities. I have tried to encourage them to be a positive influence when they are at school. I also think that the principle of obedience bears a strong message too, not only is it important to be obedient to the commandments and standards of the church and church leaders but it is also important to be obedient to your parents. I think obedience to someone confirms your love for him/her. I continue to live my faith by deciding to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have been called to Kazakhstan (Central Eurasian mission), speaking Russian. I have never been out of the country before and I am nervous to learn Russian but I believe that this church is true and that it has a special message that everyone should hear, and I would go anywhere to share it.
