Hi I'm Carlie

I grew up in Southern California, I want to own a motor boat, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a struggling college student. It turns out life on your own is difficult. But no matter what happens I can always rely on a good song and a challenging book to keep me on my feet. I'm the fourth of five girls and an aunt of two wonderful little boys! It is my firm belief that Disneyland is the happiest place on earth and big cities are the only place to find a good excuse for a theater.

Why I am a Mormon

This question has been the least challenging that I have faced as a member of the Mormon church. I am a Mormon because it's challenging, fun, rewarding, comforting and fascinating. There is no other part of my life that has ever come close to being as constant as this church has been. When I think about where I would be without the church I know the challenges I have faced would have destroyed me. The Mormon church is the church of God, his spirit dwells in our temples and blesses our daily lives. The truths of the gospel stay in our hearts and give hope and joy to a sometimes difficult existance.

How I live my faith

I try to pray and read my scriptures every day. I attend the temple once a week and participate in my ward as a service committee leader.

Does The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints endorse political parties?

Carlie
I come from California, a very democratic state, and live in Utah, a very Mormon and a very republican state. The conflict of being a Mormon in between a democrat family and a republican society used to be challenging, but when my democrat Father became a leader in the church I discovered a simple truth; the church does not endorse certain political parties only the members do. Just like any one else members believe try to chose their political parties based on their morals. Just like anyone else we are trying to do our best. Show more Show less
