Hi I'm Carol

I live in Canada, I'm married and have 5 children and 4 grandchildren, I'm a nurse and bookkeeper and I'm Mormon

About Me

I'm 50 years old and have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints for 35 years. I am married with 5 children, 2 daughter in laws, and 4 grand children. I love my family. I love reading, watching old movies, and the outdoors. But mostly I love being with my family. During the day I work as a book keeper, at night as a wife and mother. I would love at some point to go back to school. I love learning. Life hasn't been easy as it isn't for any of us, but with the gospel it has been filled with joy and peace.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because it's true. I was introduced to the church as a young girl of 10. I was invited to primary by a school friend. I don't remember much about that first time, but I do remember that I felt at home. My parents didn't object to me attending Primary as long as I didn't get too involved. oops!!! At the age of 12 I received my first Book of Mormon from my young women's leader. I was so excited. Being around members and not being Mormon was difficult at times. I remember when all the Young Women got to go to the temple and do baptisms and I couldn't because I wasn't a baptized member. That's when I first knew that I needed to be a member. Each year I would ask my Mom if I could be baptized and she always said no. When I was fifteen I got a job at a local restaurant, I became more acquainted with the world. I stopped going to church for awhile and starting trying to smoke to fit in with another crowd. They were good people, but I missed the church, I needed it in my life. I made the decision to ask my parents one more time. This time I went to my Dad. I was so shocked when he said yes. He asked me if I was sure. He explained that this was a lifetime decision and that faith is not to be taken lightly. I cried I was so happy. I was baptized in the spring of 1977, and I have never looked back.

How I live my faith

We live in a small community that is predominately Mormon. I serve with the Young Women and love being with them. I love having the gospel in my home. It has been such a help to my family. I love coming home, and feeling the peace that is there.
