Hi I'm Chelsea
I grew up in Colorado. I am serving a mission in the Maryland Baltimore Mission, and I am going to be a teacher. I'm a Mormon.
I am currently serving in the Maryland Baltimore Mission. Before, I was at BYU studying Early Childhood Education. I want to be a kindergarten teacher. I love reading and I also really love music. I play six different instruments, including the flute, bass clarinet, bassoon, oboe, tenor sax, and the alto sax.
Why I am a Mormon
Growing up I always just trusted my parents that this church was true. I never was the type of person to doubt and to ask if this really was true. I just believed it. How could it be wrong? Being a member has blessed me so much. When I was about eight years old my mother my mother had to start using a wheelchair. Because of this my family grew closer because we had to step up and help a lot more. There were times when I had to turn to my Father in Heaven and really ask for strength. Because of my parents teaching me I was able to get that help I needed. I grew in my faith and it wasn't until I became a missionary, when people kept asking how I knew, that I actually started to wonder if this was really true. It was then that I started to ask that question. I remember the day that I got on my knees and I asked if this church was true and I didn't get an answer that day. I remember sitting in a meeting listening to others talk about their faith when an overwhelming feeling came over me and from that day forward I have never doubted that this is true. It is that extra push that keeps me going.
How I live my faith
Just by being myself and striving to be Christlike every single day. Following Christ is a daily task and everyday we need to be working harder to become the best we can be. I can be an example to those I am around and by just smiling I can help others have a better day. Serving others is also important. Serving and not expecting anything in return is a way to show others Christ's love.
