Hi I'm Chelsea

I am a student, I love my family, I work, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have three sisters and three brothers. I enjoy reading and writing. I got my mission call to Uruguay Montevideo West. I just returned home and its the beat experience to share the gospel. I love my Savior and feel His love. My dad passed away when I was 14 and my mom passed away when I was 18 but I know they are still with me. Its because of the atonement that we can have eternal families. I know this to be true. This sincerly brings me joy.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a Mormon for me is a choice. When I was fourteen, within a matter of a number of months, five people close to me passed away. Two of these people were my age and friends of mine. Another was a friend's mom who was practically a second mom to me and an uncle and my father. This was really hard for me to have happen. When I was eighteen, two aunts and my mom passed away. I have found that through these challenging times that I need to stay close to the church. It became a source of comfort to me. My choice was to stay within the church. I believe because life is easier for me when I'm living my life according to the teachings of my faith. I feel happier. Being a Mormon doesn't just mean believing something, it is all about doing things that are good. I believe taking care of my body, getting educated, and working and serving to create a better world is just as important as believing in Jesus Christ. When I learn truth, it's completely up to me to make changes in my life to live that truth. the material things come and go but my religious beliefs are the same. I strive to become a better daughter to my Heavenly Father every day. I know who I am and I know what I can become someday. This is important to me. I always think about my mom's example of faith. Through these times, I know the Savior is there to help me as long as I keep the commandments. Living the gospel sincerly brings joy because its how the Savior wants us to live and that brings us joy. The teachings of jesus christ strengthen us!

How I live my faith

I love The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I go to a class the church has set up called Institute. it is all about drawing nearer to Christ.
