Hi I'm Chad

I love laughing, eating, and a good sit on the couch with my favorite movie playing, and o ya for sure I'm Mormon.

About Me

I'm a Northern Californian serving a 2 year mission in Alberta, Canada at the present time. I don't live in an igloo at the moment, and my meat is normally cooked. Back home I love hanging out with friends, riding roller coasters, playing sports in the rain, and eating lots of food. I love physical activities, but at the same time one of my favorite hobbies is watching tv on the couch... while eating, of course! I love scouting and I hope to be involved with it my entire life. I love going to the beach and I love endulging myself in the scriptures.

Why I am a Mormon

The reason I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is because it's the one thing I know to be perfect. The gospel of Jesus Christ as revealed in the scriptures is what truly convinces me of the Church's divine design, as it's creator and leader is Jesus Christ himself. The good example of my Savior and my family and friends has helped me more than tongue can tell, and I love them for it. Whenever I read the "Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ" I feel a surety in my heart of it's truthfulness. I also know how much the Gospel has helped me in my life, and I want to share the joy it brings with others. The Atonement of Jesus Christ means more to me than anything I possess. Without it I would have no hope for eternal happiness as I am not by any means perfect. Everyone needs the Atonement and the fulness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in their lives, that is why I love sharing it with others and seeing it improve not only my life, but theirs as well.

How I live my faith

I am serving a 2 year mission in Canada at the moment, sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with everyone I meet. I love helping others see the truth of it all as they read the scriptures and pray. Everyone that does this with a real intent to know the truth, will receive an answer from God. I try to be the best example I can to those I know, so they can recognize the happiness I have due to my faith. I love doing service for others, and I love it when people ask for my help. I love living my life to it's fullest as a Latter Day Saint.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Chad
Faith is the simplest principle in any religion. Without faith, there is nothing to hope for. I have come to find out that Faith in Jesus Christ is the only thing that allows me to be happy and look forward to the future. I have come to have faith in Jesus Christ by doing simple things daily, such as reading scriptures and praying. Everytime I need something, I look first to my Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ. I now have complete faith in Jesus Christ as throughout my life I have put him to the test, without fail I have been blessed everytime I have relied on him, he has supported me. I now have complete confidence in him as my Savior and Redeemer. I know everyone can have faith in Him as they follow his commandments and witness the blessings that come from doing so.
