Hi I'm Chelise' Marie

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a recent college graduate, and will be starting a career as a bilingual special education teacher. I was recently married, and enjoy spending time with my husband and family.

Why I am a Mormon

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has always been a part of my life. I had to find out for myself that it was true. I prayed, I know it's true, and that's why I've never left. This Church has helped me develop a close relationship to God, to understand His plan for me and for the rest of His children. It allows me to be with my family and my husband forever. I can't deny the feelings in my mind and heart which tell me that the Church is true.

How I live my faith

I love coming to church and taking the sacrament, remembering Jesus Christ and how I can repent and be clean from my sins. Throughout the week I live my faith trying to do my best to live what I learn and know to be true. I wish I could say I was perfect at serving and doing all that I should... But really all of us are just doing what we can to be good people, doing things to remember God and serve Him and those around us.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Chelise' Marie
Mormon missionaries proselyte because they want to share truth with others and help them to be happy. I served as a missionary, because I have found joy in my life being a member of the Church, and I wanted others to have the same things I do. Show more Show less

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

Chelise' Marie
You can get knowledge from the scriptures. You gain wisdom just from reading the stories of the past and you can learn from what happened to nations and people. There is also a special spiritual protection that comes into your life from reading the scriptures. I can't explain it exactly, but I know my life is different when I am reading my scriptures as compared to when I don't. The words of the scriptures teach us about Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, and help us come closer to them. Show more Show less
