Hi I'm Chelsey Joy.

I'm a musician, a returned missionary and a Mormon.

About Me

I served a mission from Apr 2010 - Oct 2011 speaking Spanish! I loved teaching my brothers and sisters the gospel of Jesus Christ. :) Before I served a mission, I studied music in college for three years and went on to graduate afterwards. Currently I'm working on my first album.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church but there comes a time when you have to obtain your own testimony. I could not depend on the testimony of my parents or teachers to support me my whole life. I started out doing the little things; prayer, reading the Book or Mormon, and LIVING the principles that are taught in the scriptures and in church. By small and simple things, great things come to pass. I experimented on the things I was learning to find out if they were really true. I prayed. I saw miracles. I felt happy. :) It is like the Book of Mormon prophet Alma teaches us. I had planted the seed. It started to grow. Was the fruit good. It sure was. :) I saw the blessings. I felt so happy. I tasted of the goodness and love of God. I had a testimony. I believe in this gospel of Jesus Christ, this restored gospel; The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.. "as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else." -C.S. Lewis

How I live my faith

Before I live my faith, I have to know what it is: I read my scriptures, I pray, I go to church. I feast upon the word of God. It is so delicious. :) In this church we believe so strongly in serving others. This church is a church of service. No one recieves pay. I've found the best way to live my faith is to live by example. It can be hard to express myself in words, but I've found as I've tried to incorporate the gospel of Jesus Christ more fully into my life, others notice and want to do the same. I am a happier person. Christ was the ultimate example for us. I'm trying to be like Jesus.
