Hi I'm Cheli West

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I graduated as a Registered Nurse when I already had 6 grandchildren. We are expecting grandbaby number 16 now. I love kayaking down the Provo River. I grow in my backyard about 70 percent of the food we eat. I am Italian descendent born in Argentina.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I have a more complete understanding of Jesus Christ's teachings thanks to the Book of Mormon and modern day prophets. Jesus Christ is my savior, redemer, exemplar, and hero.

How I live my faith

My husband and I coordinate baptisms for our neighbourhood. We also organize pot luck dinners once a month for the couples in our neighbourhood that don't have children living at home. That night we have a speaker to teach us about any gospel related subject. I also enjoyed doing research to find the names of my ancestors (and anything else I could find about them) and any living relatives. We serve our family mostly babysitting. We serve our community taking produce from our garden to the Food and Care Coalition.

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

Cheli West
The Book or Mormon and the Bible are the biggest guides to live my life. I is wonderful to know that we are to love one another and to teach one another. Show more Show less
