Hi I'm Carly

I love music and I love people. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I absolutely love music. I taught myself how to play the guitar at the age of 13 and I instantly fell in love with it. I took piano lessons for a couple years and I have also taken private voice lessons over the last few years as well. Music is a special way in which I can connect with my Heavenly Father and it brings me so much joy. I just recieved a mission call and I will be serving the lovely people of South America here in just a couple months. I am so excited! I am a little artistic, when I was 16, I drew the Savior Jesus Christ. This drawing is very near and dear to my heart and it has gotten me through some really tough times. I love the gospel of this church so much and it is the center of my whole world.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have gained a testimony of the gospel taught in this church. I have come to know my Father in Heaven and his son, Jesus Christ. I feel of their love very often and I know that they are real. I know that they love me and I know that they have a plan for every human individual. The Book of Mormon was written and translated by prophets called by Heavenly Father and it is true. It is full of the power of God and it has the power to change you. I know that this church is true because it has the power of the priesthood. The priesthood is the power for worthy men to use heavenly power, and it works according to faith. I know my Savior Jesus Christ lives. He had his time on this mortal Earth and was crucified for his goodness. He died so that we could be made alive! He was risen from the dead and returned to His Heavenly Father on High. Through His sacrifice, we all shall live forever. If we live worthy, we will not only live forever, but we will live forever in the presence of our Father in Heaven and our Savior Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I am the music leader for kids age 3-11 in my home ward. I prepare and teach them Primary songs out of the church's primary songbook. I spend a lot of time preparing to teach these special children all about the gospel through primary songs. On Sundays, it is my calling to help the children feel the Lord's love for them as I lead them in singing the sacred songs in the primary songbook. I am a visiting teacher, so I go and visit 3-4 wonderful ladies in my town once a month. I go with my awesome teaching partner (my grandma!) and we share spiritual messages with these fantastic ladies and serve them in any way we can.
