Hi I'm Carly Shaffer

I grew up in California. I am serving my mission in Nuku'alofa, Tonga. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to try new things! Being active and outdoors make me feel happy, healthy, and closer to God. Whether it's hiking, swimming, traveling, dancing, I love it all!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have come to know for myself that the Book of Mormon is true. And with this gospel anyone of any faith, anywhere, at anytime, can come to know for themselves whether or not it is true if they pray with real intent. I know that God will answer His children, that He wants us to come to Him in prayer, and choose to follow Him. I love my Heavenly Father and I am so grateful for the gospel in my life. I know it has blessed me abundantly, and I don't know where I would be without it today!

How I live my faith

I am preparing to serve a mission, and a lot of that preparation is knowing my testimony and praying for opportunities to share it with others now.
