Hi I'm Carson Kofford

I am a 20 year old from Orem Utah. I design clothes and make music. I am a mormon

About Me

Hi I'm Carson! I grew up in orem utah and was born into an amazing family of 6 kids and 2 loving parents! Design is in my blood. You name it, Clothing, architecture, art, graphic design. If it involves creative thinking to solve a problem I'm all about it. I hope, pray and work so that that one day my ideas will be able to exist in the real world and improve and inspire the lives of many. When I was 12 years old my little brother cooper, who was 4 at the time, passed away in a tragic car accident. In that time of sorrow my family was embraced and filled with the spirit. This event that could have been so negative ended up being one of the biggest growth opportunities that myself and my family has ever had. When the world tried to tear us apart, the spirit brought us closer to each other than we had ever been. I am grateful that god places us in the families he does, and has given us the knowledge that through the atonement and gospel of Jesus Christ, we can be an eternal family. I know that through obedience to the lords principles and commandments, I will see my brother again. Its my job to do everything I can possible do to ensure that I am worthy of the spirit and one day, eternal life.

Why I am a Mormon

In the gospel of Jesus Christ we are taught that God created man so that we might have joy. I was lucky enough to be born into the gospel and to have great examples in my life of how to live the gospel. unfortunately there was a period in my life that I didn't follow these examples and neglected the things that I was taught concerning the gospel. While in this stage of my life, like every person alive all I wanted was joy. I looked to many worldly remedies to find joy but still felt empty and alone. It was only when I accepted that I was nothing without God and invited his spirit back into my life, that I found the happiness that I was looking for. I was able to utilize the atonement through repentance and blot out all the mistakes of my past. What a beautiful blessing that God loved us so much that he gave his only begotten son so that we would have the opportunity to was our sins away and receive the blessings of eternal life. I know that this gospel is the only gospel on the face of the earth that has 100% of the truth. I know that finding truth is not easy, but I also know that whenever you have a question about anything you can pray about it and find out for yourself. If you want to have joy in your life I know that you will find that joy through the gospel of Jesus Christ. Don't trust me, trust the spirit. Find out for yourself.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by finding the joy in everything and helping others to see life this same way. To often we only see the things we don't have, we need to look around and see the blessings that our father in heaven has given us, our very life being one of those blessings! I have been blessed to be able to teach the gospel to a group of 14-16 year olds boys. This opportunity has helped me to see the gospel in a different light. By planning lessons to share with these boys I have been able to implement these lessons in my life and have seen the joys that are available to us. I really have realized that the best way to lead is by example!
